I am using a sapphire ati radeon 9800 pro and I have been doing fine except for the fact that when I access the advanced settings from the desktop, in the smartgart tab, it says I'm running at 0x agp.

I was like O_o, if the card were workin on 0 agp it wouldn't even produce any graphics at all right?, but Im still able to play any games. However i do have some wierd slowdowns that I know werent supposed to happen and I think they are due to this problem.

I used sandra 2003 to test my pc and it said too taht im running at 0x agp and that my mobo isnt properly configured for 8x agp. I mean when I try to set the agp to 8 im prompted to restart my comp, which I do and then after reboot its back to zero.

My mobo is a asus p4p800 and i relly dont know what to do, cause I cant find that option that will let my mobo recognise a 8x agp card, pls help

try reinstalling your mobo drivers, should be on a "restore" disk that came with your computer

Or even better go to the Asus site and download the latest chipset drivers.

^Yip, try un-installing your graphics drivers, D/L latest mobo drivers from ASUS, then re-install graphics... hopefully that'll fix it. If I remember correctly, someone else on this forum was having the same problem not to long ago, can't remember who it was though.
