Direct 3D and AGP acceleration disabled...
before my pc runs well and can run games like counter strike and many more but this morning when i tried to launch a game my pc suddenly restart and when i run dxdiag,i always got an error says something like "Would you like to bypass Direct 3D this time?"..and in the display tab may 3D Direct and AGP acceleration is disabled and not available its button also is greyed out...

Another is :

And when i run Everest i see problem in my chipset:

it says AGP aperture size is more than half of system memory.This may cause performance penalty.

can anyone give me a solution to that..?

Here's my Dxdiag Log :

please look my log..

Any feedback will be appreciate...

Thanks in advance

thats a via chipset however what windows are you running i will point you to a set of driver updates that should slove the problem
Thanks for fast reply...

By the way..

I'm running Windows Xp SP2
My Video Card is Nvidia Geforce FX 5500 256 mb
My CPU is Intel Celeron ® 2.66Ghz 256 mb of ram
My motherboard is ECS P4M800-M7
DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)

And is there any problem with this??:
DxDiag Previously: Crashed in system information (stage 4) & Direct3D (stage 2)

And also can you tell me how to install and update Chipset step by step

Thank you and more power...
if your unsure on how to install drivers please read this.
that should explane everything you need to know.

i will now post the drivers in the order in which they should be loaded so please follow this list.

via main chipset
that is a zip file please follow my advice on how to unpack such a file.

direct x main update
I can see from your version number yours is out of date.

nvidia FX5500 driver
tick the Agreement and download the driver.

that one is a exe file once downloaded just double click it.

things to note when installing any of the above please make sure that any third party software firewall and anti-virus are shut down or they can mess up the install of the drivers
Davey6 i don't know if i am wrong or the solution you give me is not the RIGHT solution because after i download and install all of that my 3D Direct and AGP acceleration is not available and grey out...
My procedure in installing is:
1.i run the SETUP.exe inside the VIA_HyperionPro_V524A.
2.after the process i choose No, I will restart computer later.
3.i run dxwebsetup..
4.i run the FX5500 driver and restart my pc..

but when i check dxdiag nothing change

Thanks Again..

the computer should have been restarted after the via driver was installed as that enables the agp support of the motherboard.

remove the via driver by running the install program once more.
then restart the pc
then run the via drivers again and make sure you allow agp support.

now i noticed that chipset also has built in video so please make sure you have your monitor connected to the correct card output on your pc.
if you have it connected to the onboard card it will block out the geforce card.
the geforce card connection will be half way down the back of your pc and not in with the printer, mouse , sound ports
if you notice your mointor is connected there ie with the group of ports i just said , shut the pc down, remove the monitor lead and connect it to the correct output.
I now do what you said again i remove 1st the via driver by the installer and restart the pc then install again the via driver then restart it but nothing happen again(i wish that theres a fix here)
my monitor is connected in the correct output it is below the layer of the output of mouse printer and etc..

I wish that theres a fix here...

there is only one other thing you can check and that is your bios set up screen to make sure of the following.

agp port is set to first device
apg port memory size is set to 64meg

after that, as this error just popped up one morning i think there may be a bug in the system.
all drivers i have pointed you to are correct for your system, the fault lays in windows direct x.
you can try updating to sp3 for windows xp and see if that clears it if not a full clean install of windows will be needed.

run windows update over and over till you get the sp3 option.
that may clear the fault.
I'm familiar with my bios and if i'm not mistaken my agp port is set to first device and my agp port memory size is set to 256mb..

can a clean reformat of my windows can solve the problem??
is updating take long time to finish??

by the way thanks for all your help...i wish you more power...

updating to sp3 will take a while as its a big file.
reinstalling windows again will take a while but that should slove the problem.

that agp port memory size is a little large, 64meg will be enough for that geforce card that you have.
remember the larger you have the memory amount on the port the less the main system will have to use/
as you have a plug in card 64 meg is about all thats needed.
oks i try to reinstall windows...
i have now make my agp size to 64meg

Hahahah....My problem is fix i just reinstall windows hahahah..

Thanks for your help More power...

yhup sometimes thats the only way when you get a problem that will refuse to repair no matter what you try.

now that you have a working clean system do the following.
click start, all programs , accessories, system tools, system restore.
make a new restore point as of today.

that way if things go bad again you have the option to restore right back to this day when you had a working system.
its faster then having to reinstall windows all the time.
ah..ok im very thankful that theres a forums like this.. My question is why my dxdiag always have problem when i tried to make my agp size to 256meg??

Thanks for all

it really depends on how much system memory you had to start with.
windows xp runs best when it has 256meg all to its self.
if you remove 128 for a agp port windows will start to close part of its self down in order to run faster.

as you have a stand alone card 64meg or 128 meg agp size is all thats needed.
can i play 3d and online games w/ 64meg?? for example o2jam online..??freestyle online??
can i resize my agp to 128??


yes you will be able to play online games just fine with 128meg or even 64meg agp port size.
the geforce is doing the main work for you on your computer.
agp port memory size is a old way to address a lack of memory on a video card.
not so long ago 64meg onboard memory was all you could get with a video card, these days 256 is min going right up to 2 gig+
so really its not that improtant for you to have a apg port size of 256 as thats a real waste of system memory and the overall knock on effort of that is a slow system.

when your playing on line its really your internet connection thats the limit not your pc.
the game will only play as fast as the slowest players computer and slowest internet connection in the loop of players.

hope that makes sense as i am trying to explane things without going over the top with tech talk.
