Hello !Richy...

When you go into BIOS Setup, look for the settings for "PnP/PCI Configurations". In there somewhere there may be an option to enable "Allocate IRQ to Video". Make sure this is enabled...sometimes when the video shares an IRQ with other devices, it will be seen as being PCI rather than AGP.

I don't know if this will be the solution, but it's worth a shot.

I couldnt find anything about PnP in my BIOs. However, the was a setting "PCIex" or something.. Which I changed to PCI Slot, it didnt make a difference what ever it was :)

What's the make and model number of your machine? If it's a custom build, what is the make and model number of the motherboard?
