Not sure if computer has agp texture acceleration (currently it is marked as unavailable in the directx diagnostics)

I have an acer 3610 and i just bought an ati tv wonder usb2 to use with my computer. When trying to watch tv i get a message saying that the tv player failed to initialize. So i went onto the ati website and it says that in directx i should have the agp texture acceleration enabled which it is not (marked as not available). My question does my computer have this capability and if not is there some way to get it?

those did not work.......it seems like a lot of those people had the agp text acceleration working at one point and then stopped....i on the other hand don't know if it was ever working. Is there a way to tell if my video card has this capability? (intel mobile 915 gm chipset family)

Download  software to check "  Everest "
http://www.lavalys.com/

Also Your motherboard must support agp texture acceleration.

Also confirm you have installed the chipset software that came along with the motherboard. If not check out this site

The issue must be resolved by installing the graphics driver.Download graphics driver from the site below and also download latest version of directx.
 Here is the link for graphics driver.

Check this from ATI's support page:
https://support.ati.com/ics/support/KBAnswer.asp?questionID=373

The Acer requires a specific VGA driver for the board
Intel 6.14.10.4020 is the current driver supported by Acer
Zipped file from Acer's ftp site here (it uses the same drivers as the 2410):
ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/notebook/travelmate_2410/driver/vga.zip

Make sure you have DX9.0c as well http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/directx.html

The integrated 915gm is based around a PCI 16x card but depending on how the software interrogating it for features works some features that are actually supported may be incorrectly reported as not available.  For example games software looks for hardware coded T&L if it's not there the game won't run even though adequate software decoding is available.

If you have DX9 running and it still reports that AGP texturing is unavailable with the latest drivers you are probably out of luck :(

Answer is probably 'No' downloading drivers from the llink above would confirm this.
