lemme guess... you use a joytech kyroII 32mb card?

if yes, that thing won't run at agp 4x, although the 64mb version runs fine.
I should put something smart or silly here.

athlonfan, so you're saying that it's a problem with the vid card not the mobo?

yep. afaik, kyroII's run at agp2x, but it wont run at that speed, i don't know why.

agp4x running at 2x speed is considerable, but agp2x running at 1x sucks.

wesley same set up as my rig, i guess the mobo vid card combo (ABIT KT7E and Inno 3d GF2 MX200) is the culprit here.

i have an Inno3D MX200 running at 4x on my K7S5A and i have no problems...

you might want to set AGP timings to lower values before trying 4x...

via chipset ba yan? kung via yan, siguro update mo yung 4in1 drivers nyan.  dati kasi ganun din *ata* yung naging problema ng pc ko.  tapos nag update lang ako nung bagong 4in1, ok na. yun lang. hehehe

just to make you feel better...

there is no significant performance increase from AGP2X to AGP4X.  in other words, AGP2X performs just as good as AGP4X.
