Could you please elaborate on this.

I set in BIOS -> Advanced -> Graphics Configuration:

AGP Aperture Size	256MB	(max possible setting)
Primary Video Adapter	AGP	(alternative is PCI)
Frame Buffer Size	8MB	(max possible setting)

Is that what you meant? There seem to be no other settings affectig graphics.
