Hi, im having a problem getting my 9700 pro to work in 8x. The SMARTGART in my control pannel automatically sets my card to 4x.
I guess it does this when the system would be unstable setting it to 8x. But i dont know why my system would be unstable. Anyone have any suggestions as to how i could get it to work in 8x...

My System:
P4 2.5 GHz
Asus P4C800 Deluxe
1 gig RAM 2700
ATI Radeon 9700 Pro (Most Recent Drivers)

I don’t think I can answer that question without some more information first. What is your Bios version number for that motherboard? Is that the P4C800-E Deluxe or the P4C800 Deluxe? What does the video settings say in Bios? Is this a new build or are you replacing an older video card?

If your running anything less then Bios version 1010 then I would suggest flashing your Bios to version 1011. Version 1011 is the latest version for the P4C800-E Deluxe. I had problems with my P4C800-E Deluxe motherboard until I flashed the Bios on my system. This may work for you as well. Hope this helps.
