Sometimes only AGP, not PCI, video cards

article #15, updated 3540 days ago

Just saw it today. BIOS gave the option of using the onboard video BIOS, or AGP BIOS, as primary. The machine had a PCI video card, and the motherboard flatly refused to work with it; it gave all sorts of weird behavior, and could be teased into functioning only and occasionally by rebooting to safe mode and then up. On this board and its kindred, therefore, we either go onboard video or AGP video, both, or a replacement motherboard! No PCI, even though there were 6 PCI slots to choose from.
