Mgames are crashing to desktop or locking up, Ive run out of "fixes" so last resort time.
Should my GeForce FX 5200 share I/O Port with the CPU to AGP Controller?

my GF4 TI4400 shares 2 of the same IO addresses as the "AGP Host to PCI Bridge" and I have absolutely no problems to report. I think it's pretty standard for the video card to share some motherboard resources depending what they are.

You mentioned the "CPU to AGP Controller", I'm not sure if that is the same thing as the "AGP Host to PCI Bridge" on my system but it might be. I couldn't find a "CPU to AGP Controller" in my device manager so I think it's probably a safe bet they're the same.

Asus NForce2 here.

Have you tested your ram yet? These are common issues with bad memory.
Bios settings or updates would be another place to focus. Chipset drivers and so on. Good luck with your system.:firedevil
