AGP not recognized in Win 2000 Pro
Posted on 2003-03-30
After upgrading from Win ME to Win2kPRO, the system now shows that my AGP bus is now running in PCI mode.
Why is that? Also, is this saying that I do not have the full effect of my video card? IE: dedicated memory, 4X agp, etc.....
I have a Compaq Presario 1.8Ghz P4, 786Mb ram, 400Mhz bus speed.... not sure if it helps, but it was one of the first P4 1.8Ghz chip boards, 2 drives with total of 140GB space, NVidia GeForce 3 "I believe the Ti 500, it has the S-video out"
I have upgraded to all available service packs and drivers from BOTH MicroSoft & NVidia. It still shows up as AGP running in PCI mode. I even tried to change the BIOS, the only option showing is to switch from either AGP or PCI and yes, it IS set to AGP with the video memory aperature set to 64MB for AGP mode. "figured that it needs to be set to the same memory as what is on the card"
It did work fully while running Win ME and noticed the change right after changing to Win2kPro, been scratching my head ever since.
One more thing, now when watching DVD's with the computer, it seems to skip and pause now, where it never did that before.....
Please let me know of any solutions.... please?
