Ti4200-8x in PCI mode?


Feb 5, 2004
I just installed a Ti4200-8x video card, installed the latest drivers from Nvidia, 53.03, and I have the latest BIOS on my mb and all is up to date, but for some reason, in the advanced settings, it says the card is in PCI mode. Everytime I try to change it to 1x,2x,or 4x, it changes it back to PCI mode when I hit APPLY. What gives? For anyone with a similiar card, please look at your's and see what it says.

***I figured it out guys! If you have a motherboard with the Intel i845 chipset and are running Windows XP Pro, you have to download and install Intel's Application Installation Utility !!!!!! It writes the .inf files to windoze so it knows how to use the hardware properly.

So you mean you forgot to install the chipset drivers? You ALWAYS need to install them to get AGP to work.
