    What device is associated with agartd.vxd. It's in the sys.ini or
    registry and when i boot I'm told this file is missing and that i
    should either remove the device, or reinstall it? This, subsequent to
    installing a Sapphire radeon 9500 and fiddling around....
    Also, why do I have a secondary 9500 display adapter in device
    manager, and a default monitor in addition to my samsung monitor in
    device manager. If i remove them, I'm prompted to reinstall on boot
    up. See what trouble I can get myself into?

    agartd.vxd is the agp "gart" driver responsible for the administration of
    memmory between agp/chipset. try to reinstall chipset drivers and vga
    drivers. ati radeon card do have two display adapters showing up in the
    device manager, dont remove them, one is default ond one is secondary! for
    easy operation move the monitor to the default one.

    did you use the proper way of swapping gf cards? first uninstall drivers in
    add/remove but dont reboot! go to device manager and select "remove" -> shut
    down, swap graphics cards. turn on computer and let windows/bios detect the
    new one...!?
    i think you can select "standard vga" in win9x also....

    Download 'detonator-destroyer.zip' from a files site (I think I got mine
    3d-guru.com) and follow the guidance in its help readme.
