Alright here's my stats: new (1 month) mobo w/ current bios revis, ATI 9700 AIW PRO, AMD 3000+ Barton, Mushkin 3200 ram, etc. My problem is in my bios settings: I've tried setting my agp memory to 128 megs, which is what my card has, but when I reboot, I all I get is the ASUS startup screen, then.......nothing, just the screen, no error codes, or that silly talking post code narrator thing. If I flush the bios, and leave the agp memory @65 megs, no prob. Nothing is o.c.'d, cooling is fine, and I'm using the next current Catalyst drivers (4.4 I think). None of the other bios settings are set aggressively, just stock speeds. When I re-installed farcry, I received a warning from the installer stating that i should adjust the agp memory settings in the bios. I've made sure that my AGP is set to 8X, but I must be missing something somewhere. Any suggestions would be great. I'm sure it's some small detail I've overlooked. Thanks to all. P.S.-Go Sharks!!!
