    Hiya.

    Okay, my AGP slot can go to 8x and so can my radeon card. But how do I set my radeon card to 8x? Cause on the SMARTGART thingy it has, there's an option only up to 4x. -_-;; How come it won't lemme choose 8x! :(

    When you first boot up, at the windows splash screen press Escape "Esc" key. on the screen there should be a line that says "To enter BIOS press XXX key",or something similar, press the key indicated in the message. it's usually F1, Esc, or Delete.

    I wouldn't recommend changing anything without advice. The BIOS stores vital info about your computers hardware, and you can really mess it up if you don't know what to change.

    Can't be more specific without knowing your computers make and model. Post back with the Make and Model of computer you're using. Then we can give more specific instructions on changing the BIOS, or if it will even help.
