    This problem is the most annoying, i've spent the last 2 days surfing the net to find a resolution but all i find is people with the same complaint as me. I have a geforce 5700LE graphics card..... first agp couldn't be enabled... i downloaded latest drivers and got agp enabled now when i go to play a game it comes up with the infamous blue screen of death(nv4-disp.dll), but when i revert to the old driver the game works but agp can't be enabled i need a resolve to this. i posted in this section because it has most viewers just need some help... thx i need the game working with agp for smooth gameplay.... thx again.

    This is a new card I assume....that you have recently put in.

    If so what did you have in there before and was it Agp also?

    Does the motherboard have a onboard graphics card?

    Have you checked in Bios for any settings for the graphics card?

    Sorry for all the Q??

    I'm afraid to update bios, presently i can't find a floppy disk in my room to back up the bios incase flashing goes wrong. This is a new agp card that i replaced an old s3inc 3d/2x card, both agp. My mother board is via chipset, i don't think it has on board graphics card. This has to be something with drivers when the enable agp is greyed out in dxdiag the game works but still not to its full potential but when i update to the latest the agp is enabled in dxdiag but bsod appears... thx

    Understood......

    You have the Direct X 9.0c....have you checked on the game site for any patches for that game.

    Do you have All windows updates and are you running SP2.


    Where are you getting the drivers for your Video card from the CD or web site?


    Have you checked to see if there are any update Chipset drivers for your motherboard?

    i've updated my via chipset drivers appropriately;

    1.uninstalled graphics cards
    2. updated via chipset drivers
    3.installed graphics card

    only i haven't done is update bios but i doubt that is the problem. I've downloaded all the patches for the game, why does the game run without agp with the old driver but doesn't run with agp enabled with new driver?

    Thanks for the help this is quite common, just by typing in nv4-disp.dll and blue screen in google you'll get people with the same issues in other forums.

    I got the drivers from the website, with the cd agp can't be enabled, website drivers agp can be enabled but bsod.

    Was the game on the PC when you changed the Video card....if so you could try uninstalling the game and re-installing.

    When I ask if you checked Bios I didn't mean for updates...I meant just to check in Bios settings to see if there was anything about graphics cards AGP..

    Get one of the Nvidia driver cleaner programs and try some slightly older drivers, not the very latest. Did you check the maker of your vid card's site for drivers there?
    Try another mem stting.
