Prior to new install of new hard drive and a new retail version of windows xp pro I noted
all of my bios settings.After the install the only change I noted was in the advanced/video configuration
"PEG Negotiated Width" It was 32 prior to the upgrade and is now 16.
There appears to be no way to reset in the bios.The graphics card is the only component
to be affected as the frame rates are low now.Every thing else seems o.k.
I have the graphics card set right,as PCIE in the bios.
INTEL CORE 2 DUO E6700 2.66GHz 4m
4 GB PC6400 800MHz DDR2
GEFORCE 7950 GT 512MB PCI-EXPRESS
18X DVDRW DUAL LAYER

Any help appreciated, thanks
