'your AGP is not enabled'- how do I enable it ?

  dagbladet 11:38 11 Dec 2003

Win 98.
After a reformat everything seems OK. However AIDA shows a problem which reads; 'your AGP is not enabled this may result in performance penalty'. I've looked every where but can't find where to enable it.

This is probably a BIOS setting. Depending on your motherboard, it could be under the "Advanced Chipset Features" menu, and is probably something like "AGP-4x mode" that you need to enable. If you have an AGP graphics card, the AGP itself must be enabled or the card wouldn't work.

Probably a setting in your BIOS. Hit DEL or F8 or F2 whatever it is on your PC to enter BIOS as you boot (A message should appear at the bottom of the screen), and look in "chipset settings" or "advanced" to find the option to enable/disable AGP.

I've looked every where in the bios and can't find anything that is close to AGP enable/disable, any other thoughts ?

Tell us what motherboard you have, and we'll see what we can find.

Thanks Gongoozler, i'm at my brothers for the weekend. I'll be back at my machine tomorrow night and i'll run aida to get that info.

Sometimes in the bios there is a setting for vga pci/agp just set it to agp,although it checks the pci if no card it goes onto the agp[a very short time in doing so]

If your agp is not enabled and you have an agp card how is it you can see anything on your monitor at all?.
