I have video card matrox g450 le agp and use win2k. I found out that win2k uses pci slot instead of agp - therefore, graphic performance is bad :-(
How can I change it manually to the right agp mode?
Thanx for your help!

Don't understand the question.
There two possible versions of Matrox MGA Millenium G450:
AGP and PCI.

What seems to be the problem?

From what I see:
your's is AGP, you incerted the card in the AGP slot, you installed the right drivers for the AGP version, but
the Win2000 shows you in the Device Manager that the card is in a PCI 0 (or 1, whatewer) slot,
is that right?

What is your computer/motherboard? Does it have an on-board video?
What setting options related to AGP mode or AGP/PCI you can see from the BIOS setup?

Are you sure you installed the right driver? Unfortunatelly the http://www.matrox.com/ is not accessable for me, just to see are there separate drivers they have there for PCI and AGP.
