Hi! I wanted to implement VAR, but discovered that my GeForce356 DDR is actually not a AGP but a PCI card...so my Program and other apps tell me. But Ive installed latest drivers for that one....How can this be?? Please help, its quite annoying.

Is it physically an AGP capable card in an AGP slot in yur motherboard?

If so enable AGP in the BIOS and see if that helps.

You may have to download a utility to force the issue, try NVMax.

Hmm...
Sounds like you are using windows 95 without USB patch. It sound weird but that USB patch also includes AGP support.

You need a driver for the chipset on your mainboard. I had the same problem. After installing the AGP-Drivers everything worked fine.
