Question Enabling AGP

I have recently been having major problems with the hardware acceleration on my geforce4. After months with no answer, I have discovered that several diagnostic programs running in windows report that agp is disabled. I have looked in my bios and these programs but can find no option that will turn this on.

At the moment, when running 3dmark2003 I get better fps on the cpu rendering tests! Does anyone have the answer?

Hi Roy-Svork,

I'm not sure if you want to enable AGP in linux or windows, but if it's for windows, I suggest that you visit the website of your motherboard manufacturer and download their latest motherboard driver for your particular motherboard.

As far as I'm aware, you need these motherboard drivers to properly enable AGP, provided you don't have the drivers installed already of course.

Hope this helps.

If you're running the nvidia drivers, then you can look at the entries in /proc/driver/nvidia to see if agp is enabled.

Actually I'm starting to think that my graphics card is screwed. Linux reckons agp is turned on, yet refuses to run any accelerated games\software. Windows reckons it is off, and the bios seems to think it's on. Oh Well. Thats probably what you get for overclocking
