Thanks for the info. After checking around the place for voltage info, I think (but still not sure) that my video card needs 3.3V. One site even said it sucks down 3.3A! My BIOS only lets me crank up the voltage to 2.1V.
Thank you also. I ran dxdiag and it says AGP texture acceleration is enabled. I already have the latest mobo drivers/bios. Thanks for the suggestion anyway.
I just have to accept that I can't get textures until i upgrade my video card. I plan to do that anyway. It's just annoying in the meantime. I could try to perform a hardware mod, but i don't want to risk frying my mainboard for something that's almost pointless.
