Driver needed

  TomG 15:44 29 Apr 2004


I'm upgrading to XP Pro and setup tells me I need a updated driver for my
Nvidia nForce AGP bus filter I presume this is something to do with my graphics card which is a

Radeon 128 mb pro

Any ideas where I get this driver as I cannot make sense of the manufacturers website

I thought Radeon graphics cards were ATI?

Note that the driver details will need to be "updated" to current version if required.

One point - do your motherboard have onboard nVidia graphics?

If so I would presume they would have to be disabled from the Bios (?) before using the Radeon.

It could be the AGP port on your motherboard if it is an NForce 2 chipset, try your motherboard manufacturers website. It doesn't necessarily mean on-board graphics

Ati also provides chips so other card makers can use there chipsets

I have just got a radeon and when i get home going to install it - i have an onboard agp card at moment. Would i have to uninstall the existing agp drivers then disable the card from BIOS (not sure how to do this though). Then install the new card. I notieced in the box it has a cd with online instructions and drivers so i would assume it would tell me in that.

No go into Device Manager and disable it by removing the Tick in the Box Exists in all Hardware

If you leave it Enabled you can connect two Monitors

nVidia only produces graphics chipsets for manufacturers - it doesn't actually make graphics cards.

Its greatest asset, apart from constantly updating and improving the chipsets, is that its latest drivers are fully backward compatible with all of its previous chipsets.
