Hy,

My mother boeard dosent recognize anymore my DR Ram as well as the AGP acceleration...
(I've checked the Bios and Direct X Diagnostic tool).
I update to bios to the latest version with a Flash utility that came with the mother board...is it possible to fix this through windows or is a bios problem strictly?

This is probably your problem:

DDR400 (PC3200) Support
DDR400 (PC3200), the latest and fastest DDR memory standard, supports bandwidth up to 3.2GB/s to provide enhanced system performance. (Note: PC3200 Max. to 2 banks only; PC2700 Max. to 4 banks only)

If you are using PC3200 DDR400 you can only use 2 slots of it. My Soyo mobo does the sam thing.

Found this on the Asus website by the way.

On your video card problem. The MX 440 has 2 models, one is AGP 8 and one isn't. Find out which one you have and then go into the BIOS and set your AGP to match which AGP version you are using.

I think my mother board is down concerning AGP support :?

This is hell now...my VGA nVidia is a 4x AGP, and i installed the latest drivers for the mother board, and the card...

How can i test them to know wish is down?

You think your AGP slot is bad??? Is that what you are saying?? If your video card is 4x then your agp slot needs to be set at 4x inyour BIOS. If you have a known good video card put it in your mobo and see what happens. If nothing then maybe your mobo is bad.

Unfortunatly i dont have another card...
I fixed the values (forced AGP and 4x) in bios...
So i think it is either the Card or the AGP slot in th emotherboard that is down...
I think it might have happened cause twice electricity was cut from the computer.... :?
I think this is the problem...
(i hope they accept the warranty)

Actually the weird part is that the bios actually only shows me 1x, 2x and 4x probably by detencting the card...so i guess the problem is from the graphic card...
