well, the Mother board is only 2 months old. I would think it could
handle a 4X AGP. So is the chipset patch the same as the BIOS upgrade
patch? How do I tell what BIOS version I have? Once I download the BIOS
upgrade patch, what is the step by step process for installing it?

aaron,

    If required (maybe - maybe not),
it should be on a driver cd that came with the computer. It's usually called
"Chipset Drivers". It is actually an "os patch", not bios, and newer mobos more
often need them than not. If that is not it then I'm stumped! (:-(

Re: AGP (PCI mode)

I am having the same problem. I have a geforce 2 GTS strapped into a quadro
2 pro. I am using driver 41.03. I updated my chipset drivers - no change.
I checked the BIOS - it is up to date, and it is set to AGP. What have I
missed?

Cory,

I'm not sure, but I think it's a function of the strapping. I think
that's when my whole trouble started. originally I was using an earlier
driver, that was tweaked the old way(no NVstrap), for my Geforce 2 to
appear as a Quadro 2 Pro. I think I was getting full AGP. But when I
upgraded the driver and Nvstraped, I got PCI mode. I think the Nvstrap
overrides and corrupts the VIA chipset driver. I may be wrong.

So, the question is, is there anyone else out there with VIA chipset and
a Nvstrapped set up that has full AGP goig?

    Besides the add/remove programs
area, take a look at add/remove hardware, and see if the nvstrap shows up
somewhere in there, as a video device extension. I've seen some os patches show
up there. Program liscense shemes sometimes register that way.

    Removing a hardware inf such as
that could hose your chipset inf's.

On my home machine I have a geforce 2MX strapped, and it is showing it is
using AGP. I haven't updated the bios or the chipset drivers for a long
time. I don't think I have VIA here or at work.

Nothing here. I have been all over Google Groups and can't find a solution.
