    Greetings,
    I was using some diagnostic programs to see what my computer was like and what its specs were. I saw that "Side Band Addressing" was supported but disabled. I read somewhere that this function increases the speed of data travelling over the bus to the APG port and so forth. I was wondering if I could enable this?

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. I looked in BIOS, and there was no apparent setting for such a function.

    My Specs are: Pentium III 667, Gigabyte GA-6VTXE-A, 192 SDRAM, 13Gb HDD, GeForce II MX-400 64Mb.

    You may have the option in your BIOS to enable it, if not, your motherboard don't support SBA

    goto www.guru3d.com and download there Geforce tweak utility. With that you can enable sideband addressing and fastwrites (if your motherboard supports it).
    plus many more hidden settings, to increase the speed.

    My motherboard said same thing when I checked, I set it to enable with the tweak Utility and its working fine.

    I have an Intel i815 motherboard.
