MSI K7D Master not working with HD 3850 AGP

Hi there,

 

So as the title says I have a MSI K7D Master Mobo with dual Athlon MP 2000+s, using an HD 3850 AGP for graphics.

I'm running Windows XP Pro SP3 fresh install as well.

 

For some reason the drivers for the HD 3850 AGP will install, but then when I restart the system it says that there is no ATI Graphics Card inserted into the system.

I somehow fixed this by changing a setting in the BIOS (IGP ISA Aliasing from Enabled to Disabled), but then that made it so that not both of my CPUs were being utilized in Windows.

 

Now I've reinstalled the driver for the SB Audigy in here as well, but now the 3850 wont be recognized by it's driver no matter what I do.

 

If anyone can help with some old knowledge it would be much appreciated as I've been wanting to play some games from my childhood once again.

Some people do retro builds to play games that don't run on W10 😉  it's a fun hobby I also endulge in myself, but mostly even older stuff.

ISA slots are my fetish 😄

Which drivers are you using? I've had a ton of issues getting later ATI AGP cards working as well. I have a 2600XT AGP card that refuses to install most of the time.
The latest drivers certainly never worked. They probably don't even support the old Non-SSE2 Athlon CPUs to run at all.

I've had better luck with te good old AGP Hotfix drivers, but they're hard to find nowadays...

 

Try these:

I've tried using 2 sets of drivers, some that are signed and some that aren't. The only one that would work is the official AMD Catalyst 13.4 Beta Legacy Driver, and only if I install it with the ISA Aliasing enabled, then disabling when rebooting. But then it turns off SMP for the games so now I'm severely CPU bottlenecked D:

 

Like I said, it works, but now I don't have that sweet dual core action 👌

 

In some games like Hitman 2 it's fine, but then Blood Money doesn't work, though it does work with the Dual core when I use my Doom 3 6600GT

I'm rebuilding my dad's old workstation PC into an XP Station for old games like Dungeon Keeper 2, Silent Hill 3, SPlinter Cell, etc.

 

Having it run on an old CRT as well. 1024x768 looks like 4K, I swear.

 

It's so crisp and beautiful
