I'm having major graphics card problems.  I just formated today.  The problem is that My AGP Texture Acceleration in the DXDIAG.EXE (DirectX 9.0b) is (not available) disabled and I cannot enable it.

I have tried EVERYTHING and cannot enable it at all.  I also cannot enable Sideband Addressing and Faste Writes on my graphics card and my GFX card is compatible with it.  (Note: I had all these features working fine before I formated)
Below is a screenshot taken from the System Analysis Application Aida32.

CURRENTLY:

I have DirectX9.0b Installed.
I have a ATI Radeon 9600 Pro 128 MB AGP GFX Card with up to date Catalyst Drivers installed (Currently 4.3)
I have a P4 2.66 GHZ with 1 GIG DDR Ram.
On my system BIOS my AGP Arpature size is 128 MB set on AGP.

If anyone could help me enable this I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks Alot,

Chris

This is a result of your motherboard drivers not being installed. The card is in PCI mode. You need your motherboard's AGP driver to get this to work. These drivers usually come in a set. What chipset do you have?

XionNet is correct, you need to update the drivers so that windows uses the card in AGP mode.

Here is a screenshot of my Motherboard's CD Application when I put it in the CD rom drive...

It is an Intel Chipset I believe.

I don't know how to install drivers for the AGP instead of PCI.

By George you guys were right!  Thank you both so much!  I installed some drivers off the motherboard CD (Intel Chipset INF Update Program) now Everything works great :D  Thank you once again!
