Not sure exactly what you mean, so I will ask for clarification.
In DxDiag, you are talking about under the Display tab, where it says Direct X features right? there should be a line for "direct draw acceleration", "Direct 3D acceleration", and lastly "AGP Texture Acceleration", which i believe is the one you are talking about.
It should read: "AGP Texture Acceleration: Enabled"
and then there should be a box to the right of that line that gives you the option to disable.
Is it reading "AGP Texture Acceleration: Disabled", and you are not able to "enable"?
Also, make sure you are running DX 9.0b, and of course have the latest mobo bios, the correct bios settings for AGP, and the latest videocard drivers.
Cheers for the reply! You're pretty much spot on with what I was trying to say. AGP Texture Acceleration is listed as Not Available
. I also checked with msinfo32.exe
and it reports that bus speeds available for my card are 4X
. Actual bus speed is reported as 0
I have DirectX 9.0c installed and also the latest BIOS (1066). I've also checked the AGP settings in the BIOS - it's reported as 8X. Could this just be a wee Microsoft/ATI foible that I can safely ignore? I have at least 20 games that I've bought recently (Far Cry and Doom 3 to mention just two) and I'm hesitant to install them in case my system goes belly up again.
