P4P800 - Slow BIOS screen refresh / redraw


John Smith


I built a P4P800 Deluxe today for a friend of mine and have the following
problem. When you go into the BIOS the screen refresh is incredibly slow and
the picture redraws bit by bit when you do anything.

The System is a P4 2.6Ghz 800FSB, 1GB of 3200 Crucial Memory, a 128MB AGP
Radeon ATI 9600 in an Antec 1080 box running Windows XP Pro.

Windows XP Pro runs fine and we have installed the latest Radeon Drivers.

Interestingly, when the BIOS default settings are loaded it detects or sees
a 64MB AGP card but the Radeon is 128MB. Unfortunately, changing this
setting to 128MB does not clear this refresh/redraw problem.

Any ideas people?
