    I have a Pavilion a450n also. This is the last time i am ever going to buy something from HP ever again.

    When i bought the desktop it came with NVIDIA Geforce FX 5200 and 512mb ram.

    Now i upgraded to Geforce 6800 and 1GB ram. I am having very bad unexpected chugs when i play games like Battlefield Vietnam and Half Life 2.

    The chug im talking about is when i am playing any 3d shooter games at 60 FPS or more then suddenly the FPS drops to 2-3 per sec, then maybe after like 5-10 seconds or sometimes never, it goes back up. This gets really annoying at times and there is nothing wrong with my Graphic card i checked. The only solution i think is changing the AGP Aperture but stupid HP motherboard won't let me change the setting. If anyone finds out how to change the AGP Aperture, or have BIOS version that lets you change it PLEASE PM ME THANK YOU!

    Next time im going to build my own computer from newegg...

    i e-mailed HP support with this question:

    I am trying to change my AGP Aperture size in the
    BIOS setting but it isnt listed, even in the advanced setting, so it
    wont let me change it. My motherboard is P4SD-LA (Oxford) and the
    motherboard came with HP and is the only manufacturer that supports it.
    Now my question is.. is there any way to change the AGP Aperture size through the BIOS settings? Please i know the risks i am taking by
    changing it and i will bear full responsibility for it so i do not need
    the "warning" signs.
    If there is no way i can change it in this BIOS
    version is there any way i can downgrade or upgrade my motherboard BIOS version so i can have access to more advanced settings??
    I currently have the latest BIOS update from hp.com

    Thanks again and i await your reply...

    And got this reply from idiot HP:

    Dear XXXX,

    Thank you for contacting HP Total Care.

    I understand from your e-mail that you wish to have the steps to
    change the Aperture size on your PC.

    I would like to inform you that your PC does not have the option to
    change the Aperture size for the AGP cards from the BIOS. Also BIOS
    update will not provide any new features to your BIOS settings.

    If you are experiencing any particular issue with your a450n PC, please
    do reply to this e-mail. We will be glad to assist you.

    Sincerely,

    XXXXXX
    HP Total Care

    ----------------------------------

    So i guess there is no hope for this motherboard... we are better off buying a better mobo rather than sticking with this one... Sorry :(

    Should've done a little more searching with google and you would've found my thread over @ a7vtroubleshooting. I hope this helps: http://www.a7vtroubleshooting.com/fo...num=1083474499

    Have you given any thought to the PSU only being 250 wats? im pretty sure that the new GPUS out there require 350 or more? thats 100 wats short of what they recomend? and i wouldent immagine the 250 wat in the HP is even a good 250 wat at that .. might be worth looking into ?

    Very good point. The stock PSU is very poor and will not (in some cases) even allow an upgrade to 1GB of RAM (4x256MB)... not to mention 6th or 7th generation GPUs.
