    What makes you so sure its the AGP slot and not the graphics card or drivers?

    I suppose the AGP bus could short circuit or something!

    I bet it is your AGP card rather than the actual slot itself, unless you have been mistreating it

    I have gotten 3 new video cards just because I thought they went bad. But I have recently checked them out, and they work fine. When I disable the card, I have no errors, no auto reboots, and no bsod. I disable the card 10 times 10/10 it did not get errors. And the 10/10 with it enabled did get errors. And I tried with the other cards

    Radeon All in wonder 64mb
    Pny geforce 4 mx 420 64mb
    3d phophet 9000 pro 128mb

    If you take your card out the computer will just simply boot into VGA mode. I don't think you are supposed to get an error beep for that. I could be wrong though!

    What problems were you having with your graphics cards to start with?

    Nothing happens when i take the card out and no it doesn't beep.

    I don't think anything is wrong with the card or cards i should say. Actually I know there isn't anything wrong with my cards. I just get the bsod,and physical dumps. Just my basic trouble shooting lead me to believe it might be the agp slot, but i don't know.
