PCI Mode
My computer is stuck on PCI mode. I have a Chaintech VNF3-250 Mobo and a PNY 6800 on Windows XP SP2. Both of them support AGP 8x, and I enabled 8x in my BIOS. On Rivatuner, I went to the tab where it lets u change the mode, but it was grayed out, and it wrote "determined by driver."

I had a similar problem. I have a BFG 6800 OC 8xAGP and an Abit NF7-S2G that supports AGP 8x, but after I installed the card when I look at the Nvidia display properties it said my bus speed was PCI x0. I fixed this problem by installing the updated chipset drivers for my mobo.

My Mobo uses the nForce3 Ultra chipset. I tried downloading the NVidia chipset driver, but it somehow does not work. I run the setup executable, but the window just closes after a few seconds. Does anyone know any other ways to fix this problem? I mean something kind of like Rivatuner or something, where I can change the settings and all. Thanks!

Did you uninstall all your old drivers first before you installed new ones. Also I would use driver cleaner pro after unstalling drivers to clean up anything left in the registry and such.

If the AGP port is reported as a PCI card, you need the GART driver for your chipset (nForce).

If you can't re-install the chipset (nForce) drivers over an old corrupt install, you need to remove the old corrupt install before you try again.

I removed the old drivers with driver cleaner pro, and I tried reinstalling, but still the same result. The install just closes itself without even an error message.
