Well, did you install the latest AGP Drivers from your motherboard manufacturer? Also the motherboard drivers themselves? The laggy graphics is due to missing graphics drivers. Get them from your manufacturers website. That should fix your problem

Other wise, your agp fastwrite should be at your card rate. If you need more help, post.

Edit the /etc/X11/xbd.conf

In the Section "Device" add
Option "noaccel"

May be it helps in loading faster.

(P.S. I am a newbie.)

noaccel will only slow things down more. All depends on your system.

Please correct if I am wrong
My system has 128 MB RAM and X doesn't loads in FC3. SO i added "noaccel" and now it works fine.

How can it slow the system.

I wanted to edit what I had said earlier because I had gotten of a similar topic concerning noaccel and was stuck in my mind. Plus I had a 8v8 match on CS:S and I was late to show up =P. Anyways, now that noaccel has fixed your problem, I want to see, does you video work fine? games?

Your post only talks about players and music. By the way, noaccel will turn down the fancy stuff that is gone into the desktop which in turn, gives off free resources and speed processes up. And 128MB should still let FC3, or any particular LinuxOS, to run pretty smoothly at default.

And no hardware acceleration support means more free resources for your system to operate more smoothly. Such would be in WinX line-up where you can change Hardware Acceleration Bar from Low - Medium - High. =)
