need help from a pro

By bjcee ·
I have just installed a new graphics card (leadtek FX5600 256MB)and when I run dxdiag the AGP texture acceleration is not available. I hasve tried reinstalling dx9 and also tried installing older drivers and new ones as well, also installed the chipset drivers. As of yet i still do not have the texture acceleration available. Can someone please give me some directions on where to solve this issue, as my pc runs slower than it did with the Ge-force 3 ti500.

OS- winxp pro
Abit NF7s with nforce chipset
1GB ram
oh and the FX5600 :)

please please help!!!!!!!

Thing is that it does sound like a drivers problem. ?How did you install de card?, ?did you deinstall the previous drivers first?

the drivers for the old graphics card was the same drivers used for the new card although the old ones were older, as i did have a problem with the new drivers for the Geforce 3. I then installed the new drivers but no texture acceleration was available so i started to install older drivers for the new graphics card to see if thatwould solve the problem, but alas its still there. I then started from scratch ie uninstalled all geraphics drivers and chipset drivers and reinstalled DX9b then installed the chipset drivers and then graphics drivers. At the end of that I still have the prob of no AGP texture acceleration available.

Hope this helps a bit

1. check with A-Bit for a BIOS update.
DO NOT update the BIOS unless the update addresses compatibility issues with the 5600 graphics card.

2. Have you downloaded the latest drivers from for both the graphics card and the chip-set?

3. In BIOS settings, make sure that the video settings are as recommended by either Nvidia or Leadtek.
Set the AGP aperture to at least the same size as the amount of RAM on the video card.
