Problem with asrock p4i45 mother board reading agp card correctly

I have a geforce nvidia 6600 gt... the asrock agi support list reckognizes the card as one that is supported. but the card stays in pci mode... wont go into agp mode no matter what i have tried. i have downloaded and updated the mobo drivers and installed intel inf drivers... i have installed the latest force ware drivers.. (which had a problem with displaying video) (had to resort to old force ware drivers to correct that problem.) it bothers me, because i installed a program which stated that the mother board doesnt support the features of the card... but states that the card IS supported and that everything should work fine.

Did you try changing it through your BIOS? Most motherboards with AGP have an option in the BIOS to switch between PCI mode and AGP mode. If this doesn't work, send an e-mail to stating the problem and see if they have a patch for it.

I have the same problem... but mine is a 775i65GV from Asrock and my 6600GT also runs in PCI mode only. I already emailed them with regards to this problem and all they said was that the OS itself is misreporting the card to be in PCI mode. I even reformatted my PC and still its on PCI mode. I really doubt what they said about the OS and softwares misreporting it because FastWrites and SideBand Addressing are also turned off when using RivaTuner and SiSoft Sandra. I guess the best option would be to just sell this board on e-bay and buy a better one. :-( I guess Asrock pulled a fast one on me

    I would like to buy a video card that is compatible with this board, what do you recommend?

    it's pretty difficult to find a good video card (as you say) because it is on agp. a good option would be a nvidia 6600. it also depends on how much money you want to spend and what do you use it for.

    here is a link with several agp video cards:

    from the ones that are listed in the link above i would recommend you:
    BFG GeForce 7300 GT / 512MB DDR2 / AGP 8x / DVI / VGA / HDTV / Video Card
    it has a good price (in my opinion), it is compatible with you mother board and has good performance

    I hope this helps

    Which latest Graphic card can be supported by my Asrock P4i45GV?


    Any video card that supports AGP x8 Should work on this motherboard.

    For example Nvidia 7800 GS AGP or 7600 GS AGP should work fine.

    But a better investment would be to upgrade the motherboard to a PCI-E supporting board and possibly AMD Dual or Triple / quad core processor the ram is very cheap for DDR2 these days.

    Upgrade would be best in long run.

    No display

    Hi st_niclaus,
    (Note: ASRock does not list the FX 5500 series AGP graphics card on their web site).
    To confirm this please see the VGA supported list at ASRock, click this link:
    There is an order that should be followed when upgrading from using the onboard video to the AGP card.
    Check your bios setting. See Init. Graphic Adapter Priority page 27 & 28 in manual.
    Set to: [AGI/PCI/Onboard].
    Also see instructions on how to install, AGI slot: on page 17.
    AGI = ASRock Graphics Interface.
    If your display still does not function after making these changes, it is possible your FX 5500 is not compatible with your board.
    (Suggest you buy one from the list provided by ASRock's supported link above).

    Good luck st_niclaus!
