Having issues with my AGP

by jeebwise / September 18, 2008 12:10 AM PDT

I am currently running windows xp. I have an ATI 9550 graphics card. My mother board is a m7ncd. It has a built in AGP I believe but as far as I can tell it is disabled. I have a gig of ram and 1.4 ghz processor. My main problem is every time I try to turn my AGP on to 8x, the next time I boot, the system turn it back to off. I have updated to the latest drivers and I know there was a time when I had this turned on so I am not too sure what I did with this install. I have disable a couple of services under services.msc. Is there anything in there that may have something to do with an AGP. Any help with be appreciated.

I remember that was how it was back then.

Many boards did that. The only good news is the gain from 4x to 8x isn't enough or worth enough to change the motherboard to one that can support 8x.

"so I am not too sure what I did with this install."
What does that mean?

Is there some background here?

Did this reinstall of windows include the mobo drivers?

It did not. I left that disc out because it has the drivers for the onboard graphics card. The only thing that I have ever installed from the disc is a temp monitor.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
