    Dunno - the company PCPartners marketted some agp cards and agi equipped mobos - just a longshot - see this card they sold:

    I figure, they sold the card, they might have support. lol

    gl anyway - I have seen as much of that stuff as I need and truly think you are hosed. Turn that comp into a basic work horse and get even a used one with a better mobo to utilize your card.

    I downloaded another driver, and I checked a Gigabyte utility..

    Chip Vendor: Ati
    Chip Type: Radeon 9250 (RV280LX)
    Model Name: R925128DE
    Bus Type: AGP Bus
    Agp Speed: 1X Rate <<<<-------------------WTH?


    But then When i check the Ati Catalyst the Agp Speed says 0x
    So i change it to check if it changes anything with the gigabyte utility but it doesn't..

    Anyways I'm wondering why the Gigabyte utility says 1x and the catalyst says 0x..

    Then I used a program named AGP memory (By nvidia)
    and it says agp memory: 0 (Which Isn't a good sign)

    I haven't read the whole thread, but when the AGP's bus speed is at 0X or 1X, you need to install the AGP drivers for your mobo's chipset. Also, the correct AGP speed should be set up in the BIOS too :)

    AGP drivers for my mobo? (I'll check that out)

    And for the Bios, there is no Agp speed setting or anything like it..

    Only AGP aperture size which is already set to 128mb..

    I think I found the problem, I've found hell alot of information about my mobo, and it seems like the AGI is the problem, Since you can't disable internal vga, so its like its running agp and internal vga at the same time.. meaning the OS thinks im using internal which makes it impossible for me to be able to change the agp speed... *sigh* Damn Asrock -.-
