  • Agp

    Hi, I have a NVIDIA n6600 AGP card. After I installed it, I was looking around in the display options and saw. The NVIDIA tab show that my video card is AGP, and the adapter tab>properties show my video card as using a PCI bus instead of AGP it look like this (Location: PCI bus 1, device 0, function 0) I got the latest drivers from NVIDIA. And latest driver (Intel Chipset Device software: INF_AllOS_8.3.1009_PV_ Intel) from Intel. And even I format the hard drive and install WinXP.but it didnít help. Can some one tell me how to fix it, change (PCI Bus to AGP) Thank you in Advance.

    I'm not a hardware expert but I would expect that is normal and nothing to worry about.

      It's normal. As long as the card is detected correctly then everything's fine.

        Hi
        thanks for your reply.I thought it should be AGP in the adapter tab.
        I have 4 GB of RAM in my computer.I added the /PAE switch in the Boot.ini file. And the system properties still showing only 3.25 GB of RAM. Do you think we can fix it?

          Nope.. Move to a 64bit OS.

            Is the hardware capable of supporting 64-bit software? A relatively modern machine should be. The Intel Core2 family is 64-bit capable.
