    I did not see an AGP to CPU controller listed under System on that Link.

    Did you install the chipset drivers before trying to install the video drivers? They need to be there (up to date and correct version for your chipset) before you can install the video cadr drivers.

    CPU talks to the AGP Controller that talks to the Video card.

    Edit
    Never mind it's there, SIS Accelerated Graphis Port. I'd still check the SIS chipset drivers are insatlled correctly though. Also check in the Bios to make sure AGP is selected as the video mode.

    installed the latest sis driver but the install program for the graphics drivers still says INF ERROR, Try installing a driver for the video display (vga compatiable) first.
