    Im using the 4.1 catalyst driver from the ATI site.
    My ATI card is also built by ATI.

    What exactly does this option of AGP write do?

    I have the exact same problem and it's been driving me bonkers
    My specs are:
    Athlon XP 2400+
    256MB RAM
    Gigabyte VIA KT400A MB
    Sapphire Radeon 9600

    Basically when I try to activate AGP Write under Advanced SmartGart it's all OK (if I click "Retest All", the system sets it to ON) but after a restart it's back to OFF.

    I'm curious as well as to how big an impact AGP Write has on performance.

    BTW this is NOT the AGP FastWrite setting in SmartGart. This is an advanced setting that you can get to via Start>Run> smartgart. Apparently "AGP Write" means the AGP port can communicate directly with the system memory (as opposed to what, I don't know).

    sepherum2ya I attached a screenshot.

    BTW I see this is a pretty old thread, have you solved the problem jack777766?

    Oh and before you ask: I've downloaded the latest AGP Driver, the latest Catalysts -- I even updated my BIOS. My BIOS has no settings whatsoever in the way of AGP though.
