You cannot change the BIOS settings for the computer graphics from within windows...the BIOS must be set to the AGP settings first and then saved before exiting.

I am not sure what you are refering to with the ccc but figure it to mean some control center software program that you have.

Are you sure that your graphics card is AGP formatted? Or is it a PCI formatted card...or a PCIe formatted card. There are the three possibilities and the BIOS must be set accordingly.

All in the bios is set correctly...Heres what i did.I have a Hanns-G Hi221D Monitor and just switched from vga cable to dvi-d cable and when i turned the pc back on and went to the ATI Catylst Control center and checked the settings all off the agp settings were turned off and the only settings on were the pci read and write.Now being i changed cables would that have caused this to happen?I have ran 3D benchmark tests and all ran great and they mentioned nothing about agp being off

Yes , that is correct! it is turned off because you have changed from analog to digital and they no longer matter.

I just bought that same monitor from newegg and love it.

Why?

A conventional graphic board converts digital into analog signals and transmits them to the monitor via an appropriate VGA cable. In the case of a LCD monitor with a digital panel, the video signals are reconverted in the monitor. Each conversion process may mean errors or loss of picture quality. In addition, considerably more effort is required with digital interface devices to reproduce the picture in a good standard of quality and geometry for analog viewing. The picture may also have to be readjusted "manually". With a digital control this is unnecessary. The entire picture is transmitted pixel by pixel in digital form. Geometry, cycle or phase settings are no longer required here. This greatly relieves the user for as soon as the Ambix® monitor(equiped with both analog and DVI) is digitally connected, a perfect picture is assured. Neither auto-adjustment via the on-screen menu nor manual readjustments are necessary. At the same time, two conversion processes are eliminated, firstly in the graphic board digital/analog converter and again in the monitor.
Since these settings are no longer required they are blocked out.

How can there be change when one returns to the same group of people that started this fiasco to begin with?
