AGP 4x videocard showing as PCIx0 in XP

Hi all,

I've got an AGP 4x videocard on the other PC here.

The system (ASUS P4S8X-X), supports 4x is in the BIOS.

According to the manual this mobo can go to 8x AGP.

Its set to 4x at the mo.

The AGP card has 3 little leds on the videocard. (Geforce 2 MX400)

Power, error, and 4x. The power and 4x leds light up.

BUT when u go to the desktop / properties/settings/advanced/the card (the
Nvidia 71.89 drivers are installed).

Instead of showing the speed opposite bus (AGP 4x) here it says pcix0?

Would it be the wrong version of the Nvidia drivers, thats making it do
this??

The system works fine, it runs and u can get into windows xp.

I've tried 2 videocards, on this PC and it says the same thing.

Anyone seen or heard of this before?

What is the AGP aperature set at in the BIOS? Set it to 32 or 64 or
whatever is recommended.

And install/update your chipset/AGP slot drivers. XP can not correctly read
the AGP slot info, and the BIOS info, if it does not have the updated
drivers install. Microsoft does not ship a complete set of chipset drivers
for each possible motherboard.

Yup I missed installing the SIS AGP drivers.

Have installed these now, and it now shows AGP 4x under properties.

Thanx for the info.
