AGP problems can cause random crashes or hangs in 3D mode, immediate crashes or hangs upon entering 3D mode, image corruption, turning off your monitor, freezing your computer, and just about anything else you can think of that involves a video card.
AGP causes problems most often in 3D mode but it can sometimes get into trouble in 2D mode. But a surprisingly large number of computers have unreliable AGP ports.
The AGP expansion slot was designed to provide high speed transfers between a video card and the motherboard.
An AGP slot is actually a modified version of a 66MHz 32 bit PCI slot.
Hi, I have been using my computer for some time, and windows 10 has come out and I was looking forward to using it but it turns out my GPU is not detected.
It was working before the update but now its not being listed in the device manager, instead all that is in Display Adapters is Microsoft Basic Video something.
I have no knowledge of if the drivers provided by Windows 10 are better or just the latest legacy beta drivers with a new signature for Windows 10.They are basically the same steps which I had to do with Windows 8/8.1 previously.Drivers installed with this guide: Legacy Windows version: Windows 10 Home x64Laptop: Toshiba L500-1ZP (2010) I suppose the following steps should also work for graphics card considered legacy now for desktops.If you disable the AGP features, then it reverts to being a PCI slot which is twice as fast as the plain old PCI slots in most people's motherboards.AGP 1.0 was introduced in 1996 and provided the 1X and 2X speeds which are two and four times as fast as a standard PCI slot.Your motherboard contains a CPU, some RAM, and expansion slots.
