It's AGP and did you make sure to set it to 8x or auto in your BIOS?

It's has little or nothing to do with the BIOS. It looks like from his pick to be software related as in: Latest Chipset Drivers possibly or windows errors

BIOS defaults detect AGP, not PCI first. And... you can't set the AGP speed in the BIOS as far as I am aware of.

1) Make sure you have all the latest Chipset Drivers from Asus here (http://www.asus.com.tw/support/download/item.aspx?ModelName=P4P800%20Deluxe)

2) Make sure DX9b is installed here (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=141D5F9E-07C1-462A-BAEF-5EAB5C851CF5&displaylang=en)

3) Grab the latest Forceware Drivers here (http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_53.03)

To be on the safe side, uninstall the current videocard driver from safe mode after you have done 1) and 2) first. If you are still having probs, remove everything in the PCI slots and boot windows up. If everything boots up fine, add whatever cards you pulled out one at a time.

*Also, make sure you have atleast the somewhat current Bios software installed. To check, while booting up make sure the Asus Logo is disabled in the Bios so you can see all the details. When rebooting, hit the Pause Break key to allow the screen to Pause so you can see what the Bios version currently is. Bios ver. 1010 is fine, ver. 1012 just adds support for Intel P4EE's. If it is Bios ver. 1009, update the bios.

Peace,
