Thread: Cannot Determine If Card Is Running Agp!!!!

    Need some help here please. I just built this PC. Motherboard is a ASRock P4VT8, Graphics card is Radeon 9600XT 256 MB. Now, I enabled my agp, set it to the primary graphics card in the bios, and set the speed to be at 8x (both mobo, and gfx card accept this speed). Now when I go into my ATI Catalyst program, under options, then details it says Bus Type: AGP 4x, 8x . Then under current bus settings it says 0 (see attatched picture). I go into the smartgart setting (where my AGP is set to off), and try to change it to 8x. It then prompts me to restart, which I do, after i restart, I go back into the ATI Catalyst program, and my AGP is set back at 0, and OFF. Needless to say I think my AGP card is running as a PCI card, and Im not getting the full effects as I would with an 8x AGP card. I am pulling my hair out over this. Any suggestions??? Appreciate any input I can get.

    You're right, It is a 9600, I just mistyped it. Well if its a program glitch, how come I cannot set it to 8x? All of my hair is almost gone. Soon I will not have any left to pull out

    run CPUID it will tell ya what mode u in

    also the fact that it says 4x 8x means thats the modes the card is capable of.

    Not very proficient with CPUID...actually never heard of it. How do I run it? And also, I realize that the 4x and 8x is what my machine is capable of, but then it says the current setting is 0. Thats what im trying to figure out why my card isnt runing @ 8x

    I suspect driver issues. Are you relying on the os for the chipset drivers?

    O.K. I have CPU-Z . It says nothing of my graphics card, or agp performance in there. Maximus, I do not believe im using the OS drivers. I installed the drivers that came on the CD with the gfx card, then immediately downloaded the latest drivers from ATI. Since it (agp) didnt work, I rolled back the drivers. Still didnt work, so I re installed the latest drivers, which I'm currently running.

    LOL, Im going to shoot myself. Downloaded VIA's Hyperian 4 in 1 drivers, rebooted computer, and voila! 8x AGp. Thanks to everyone that had input in my problem, I appreciate it. Standby for benchmarks
