I have an eMachine (yes, I know...no flames please)
running XP Pro
AMD Athlon 2400+
I got an Asus video card
ATI A9250 AGP 8x
256 MB DDR
(there are also drivers included for PCI express)
Now here comes the problem. Windows installed the card alright, and I installed the drivers that came with it, kept getting an error upon starting Windows that the drivers were not installed and/or not working properly. When going to the device manager, it says I have a code 12, which is "there are not enough resources for this device. Please disable another device on this system"
I thought maybe it was a driver thing, I dled the most recent drivers from Asus which are only a couple months old. Still no help. I made sure that there were no remaining drivers from my previous card which was an Asus GeForce 4 MX 32MB.
Now I have two tech guys, one on each shoulder telling me different things about what is wrong.
One is saying update or flash the bios and the other saying that isnt what is wrong but my computer for some reason is trying to read it as a PCI card and it's causing some type of conflict. Me being just the non-computer savvy girl I am have no clue what to think or which advice to take, or if neither or both are right.
I did check in my bios to ensure that it was setup as AGP and not PCI and I couldnt even find the option for it. I did read an article earlier here: http://www.tweak3d.n.../aperture-size/ that prompted me to reconfigure my AGP Aperture settings, and upon doing that, still nothing.
Do you have any clue what I can do to alleviate this problem and just get my card working? Any help that is offered would be appreciated. I could also get you a version of my bios if you could just tell me how to check it. (See, I told you, not a very bright girl when it comes to computer hardware!)
Thanks so much,
