    I just installed a pci graphics card on this pos and it was using an on board ATI now after a few trys I got the new card installed,but this is my question There is in the hardware devices the ALI1451 pci to agp that I had to disable along with of course the display adapter (ATI) ...... in my direct x setup I no longer have AGP as a test its greyed out...... just direct draw and the 3D can be tested .......is this normal ...... the card is a tnt nvidia 16 mb velocity4400 ......... now if I want to lets say format and start fresh what stops windows from reinstalling that ALI chip? now that its running I kind of feel I would be better off with a clean install ,some games are not right (settings) any help on this I would appreciate?? Thanks in advance..........:(

    You answered your own problem..

    A PCI card Can't be AGP :), thats why there are PCI slots and AGP slots....it can't test or support AGP because you don't have an AGP card, hope that solves it for ya :)
