The old 'PCI bus' trick ....

The old 'PCI bus' trick ....

I found this tip on the newsgroups. When trying to set up my NVIDIA GeForce2 MX.

The gist of it is this. Even though you may:

  • have your card plugged into the AGP slot
  • have AGP selected in the BIOS
  • ... the card may still not use the AGP bus.

You also need to have a motherboard driver installed which activates the AGP port.

The newsgroup poster - Will - had this problem in Windows 2000. I'm running Win 98SE and to my surprise I found the same situation.
