Default MSI K8N Platinum (NF3 250GB) help!

I installed my new motherboard over the weekend and found out that my ATI AIW 9800Pro card is stuck in 0x mode instead of using 8x. I went into the bios and made sure that the setting is 4x/8x. I'm also using the latest Cat's (4.6)

Is there anyway that I can for the board to recognize this as a 8x video card?

Oh yea....on my other boards, I had no problems with this.

That doesn't sound right, I'm currently using a 9800P in the mb w/ no probs. What are you using that reports AGP 0x? I don't even think thats possible. There's a lot of inaccurate readings, including temp on "newcastle" cpu's, associated w/ this board. Do yourself a favor and grab the 1.25 beta bios until an official one is released. Also using 3.8cats & nforce 4.24 drv's.

I did a live update last night, and It's telling me in the display control panel that it's 0x. Should I use the beta Cat drivers, or should I go with previous Cat drivers? I'm kinda suspecting that it's a software issue.....

Its diffinitely a software issue, sounds like incorrect readings because if yer card actually ran at "0x", there would be no bandwidth for anything to be displayed. The 4.6 cats should be fine, I'd grab the new bios & make sure you've got the 4.24 nforce drv's installed. btw, do the cats show 8x agp speed in the display panel?

Just reinstall you AGP drivers, DX9, and Cat drivers in that order and that should fix your problem.

If that don't work then it could be the MOBO chipset.
A large chunk of Nforce 250 owners are having problems with this chipset.
You can go to www.amdmb.com and find some more info in the fourms there about the chipset problems. The bigest problem with the chipset is the poor overclocking via HTT(FSB).

Which nforce drv's you got installed? Don't use the crap off the cd, grab the ref 4.24's & reinstall dx9b w/ cats like snipe said. Should work fine.
