Try booting into the bios/setup and enable it there first.

smartgart will disable fastwrites if "it thinks" that by enabling it,the system will become unstable.

you can set to on but when you reboot it will be off again.

you can use rivatuner to enable fastwrites and sideband addressing.

i would leave it as it is will see no improvement in speed/performance with fastwrites enabled.

kind regards
