    Have you tried running Aida to see how that is seeing your card. It might just be reporting 64mb as a typo.

    adia reports it as 64mb
    i just thought of this, i have a secondary ATI 64mb PCI AIW card for my analog capature nad TV, it is 64mb would this be affecting my main card? which is in the AGP. just thought about it not too sure if it is possable but yea

    Guessing here. Could you maybe disable the second card from within the device manager. You might have to reboot but windows should then only see the 128mb........maybe.

    I thought taking the card out all together would fix it for sure. Good 'ol windows. Hope you sort it out.

    is sandra also reporting as a 64mb card ?

    I am also inclined to think it might just be a 64mb card...

    post what sandra reports it as... possible with a jpg showing the details...

    also... in your bios make sure that primary card is listed on your AGP... not pci... (just have to change from PCI to AGP if it isn't that already )

    it is all set properly in bios nad even when i turn the computer on and it says the video card name it says 128mb, the car was bought as a 128mb, was running like that before. so i am pretty sure that it is

    Just for grins. When you used to see it as a 128 card were you using an older detonator?

    PS Life in ATI land is wonderful. Been using the same driver for 6 weeks since I got the card. ;)

    looks like it might just be a 64mb card :eek:

    In aida32 look in the physical devices section and see what it says for your card? Mine shows exactly right ....
