I have a chaintech board, the 5AGM2 with a AMD K6-2/333 with 64meg of
memory. Using Windows 98
The only board I have plugged in is a AGP ATI 3D Rage Pro.
I can't get the system to set up correcty. When it boots into windows I get
an error saying there's a conflict with the graphics card.
Under system for the AGP card : This device can not find any free
input/output range I/O resource to use (code12)
Under properties: memory range 00000000-00FFFFFF used by system board
extension for pnp bios
There are another three conficts.
The system will only allow me to use 16 colours.
Tried changing the AGP card and the motherboard. Same message. Tried tech
support from the place I bought the motherboard from and thet didn't know.
Loaded all the latest drivers for both boards.
Are you running Windows 95? If so you need to install OSR2 AND the USB update in order to obtain AGP support. There will still be a conflict between the graphics card and the AGP controller in system devices but this is normal and the card will still work OK. If not and you still cannot get it to wotk make sure you have no VESA software for your old card loading in the AUTOEXEC.BAT or remove a few PCI cards to free up resources. If problem persists with only the graphics card installed you have either faulty graphics card or a faulty PCI/AGP slot on the motherboard. You can try changing the slot if its PCI as ATI cards can work without an IRQ via jumper setting.
check your bios settings agp and usb should be enabled. video bios cache,shadowing should be disabled .if these dont help try using default bios settings.you can also try
removing the drivers for your card(set video to std vga 16 colors) then reboot and install new video card drivers

mikejh, davidsmith says he's using Windows 98. You don't need Windows 95 OSR2 when you have Windows 98 installed, as it's an older version. No. You can't buy Win95 OSR2, as it only comes with your new PC. In other words, it's only for OEM, and there is no retail version.
