  1. I've been using computers for about 10yrs, seen a lot of bios, about 6 months ago I upgraded the bios on my computer to .P07, within the past 4 months I started playing games (BF1942, MOHAA, etc)... So I upgraded from my GF2 MX100/200, to a ATI Radeon 9100... but the games don't really run that much better... I average about 25-35 fps...

    I've upgraded to the newest drivers Chipset/Sound/Video
    Tried XP Pro & Home, same problem on both.

    Then I decided to check my bios settings, and the only video settings it has at all is 'AGP/PCI' to choose which type of video card I'm using... doesn't have AGP Aperture, Fast Write, AGP Speed... nothing... I can't even find IRQ settings in the bios...

    I don't remember if my bios had them before the update to .P07 or not, like I said I've seen plenty of bios, and have seen those settings on other computers, but don't recall if there were there on mine...

    anyone enlighten me on where those configurations are, or if they are not available on this motherboard?

    thanks alot,
    Travis

    D845HV doesn't tell much to me. Which motherboard is that?
    I'm using Abit BD7 which has i845 chipset too, and I have quite a lot of AGP options to play with.

    It's an Intel motherboard... proper name is Intel D845HV

    i845 is just your chipset, I know NV30 (user on here) has/had a D845HV...

    thanks

    also... my bios starts out as H84510A. and I'm on revision P07... this is a modified gateway clunker... Intel has revisions up to P14, but it won't work on here, only revisions I've gotten to work were from the gateway website... which were P06, and P07...

    I'm really just thinking about upgraded my motherboard & ram and eventually upgraded my processor... figured I could get a good mb that support 400/533fsb, 8xagp, ddr400, and 512mb ddr400 for around $150 maybe less...

    thanks.

    Yes I do have a D845HV.

    Travis95, there's nothing more in my motherboard settings than there are in yours.

    Intel makes motherboards for servers and workstations that are stable and reliable, so there are no overclocking / tweaking options available.
