are you sure your bios doesnt have an aperture setting or default...id be very surprised, unless your mobo is too old that it doesnt support an agp port?
certainly a bios upgrade is an answer...but go to the mobo website and get the details on the above first
The AGP aperture is an area of system RAM reserved for use by the AGP card for storing textures if it needs to. Since most video cards these days are 32Mb + this setting is not as important as it used to be.
It should be set to half your system RAM if possible, and if not it should be set at some point below or equal to the amount of RAM that you have.
from what i understand changing the agp aperture size will allow more data to go into the agp adapter(video card). i have never tried to mess with my video card to much so i couldnt really help you on what to do about it.
i've messed around with my agp aperature setting in the past and did benchmarks... in short, no setting made any noticeable difference with performance. period. i've read other people have the same experience so you might not want to waste your time. otherwise, have fun. }:>
Hmm well something is wrong with my computer. My geforce 4 will work fine, good fps while im looking at stuff that arent to graphical, but when I play like Counter-Strike itll work fine untill there are around 5 characters in my screen. The Fps will drop down to 40 untill I look another way where no one is at. Also my frames drop to 10 on 3dmarks 2001 SE monster truck game video on high detail.

Actually, before you try any of that you should go and change the max % of the hard drive your recycle been is using up(right-click your bin icon, ckick on properties and slide the little bar over)... 15% sounds like a safe number...
