Please help with WinXP and SIS AGP driver

238 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  e vey
Hi all,

I need some help for a clean install of my new Mobo ASUS P4S333 on a WinXP system.

My problem is, that I cannot change the driver for my grafikcarte (Radeon DDR) to "PCI VGA Standard".

But this will be nessesary for a clean install of the SIS AGP chipsetdriver !!!

What can I do?

The support from SIS says, that you "must" change the display driver to vga standard bevor install AGP chipsetdriver.

I tryed everything I can, but XP allways loads the drivers for ATI Radeon, cannot change to vga standard !!!

The SIS support says, when you don`t do that, you have not the optimal hardware acceleration from your grafikcarte !!!

Please help.

can someone help me please ?!
Hi again,

can someone tell me, how I can switch the vga-driver to "PCI vga standard" on WinXP ?

Or where can I get an inf-File for "PCI vga Standard" on the net ?

Or can I use the inf-File from Win98SE ?

Please let me know !
I don’t have win XP but i think it shod be the same as others when you go to set manually from a list of drivers standard VGA is always first choice.


Nah. XP ain't like that. They make it "so easy" that you can't do it it that way.


I think if you boot into Safe Mode, (be quick with the F8 key 'cause you get less time that with Win9x) you can get what you want.
Hey evey,

thank you very much for your answer.

what you mean with "boot into save mode and you can get what you want".

There is also no chance to change the display driver do VGA standard in the save mode.

Can you help me a little bit more ?

That were very helpful for me !!

Thank you very very much for your help.

Go to www.rage3d.com and look at the guides, there is one posted on how to completely remove the radeon graphics drivers under winsxp.

Safe Mode:

From the Windows Start menu, go to Turn off computer and click Restart.

As the computer restarts, watch for a progress bar at the bottom of the screen.

Immediately press F8 before the progress bar reaches the right side of the screen.

From the Windows Start-up menu, highlight Safe Mode and press Enter.

Wait for your desktop to appear, and then make the necessary repairs (for example, uninstall programs or devices).

When the repairs are done, restart the computer, and allow it to boot normally.
