AGP question


I just bought a Radeon 9800Pro. Are the settings automatically changed to AGP8x or do I have to change them manually?

I only found these settings in my BIOS
Graphic adapter priority AGP/PCI
Graphics Aperture size 128MB

Aida gives:

AGP properties
AGP Version 3.00
AGP Status Deactivated
AGP aperture 128 MB
Supported AGP Speed 1x, 2x, 4x, 8x
Fast-Write Supported, Deactivated
Side Band Addressing Supported, Activated

Problems and suggestions
Problem AGP is deactived.

On pc in properties > settings > advanced > Smartgart :
Current AGP speed off

So, how do I activate the AGP??

My motherboard supports 8x

AGP8X/Pro. AGP8X (AGP 3.0) is the next generation VGA interface specification that enables enhanced graphics performance with high bandwidth up to 2.12GB/s.

From all appearances of your AIDA32 and such, you should not have to do much than the usual motherboard and video card drivers...
