Unhappy AGP not working right...

After installing PC Wizard on my machine I noticed that it's telling me my Radeon 9550 has AGP disabled, and is only running at 4x. These seem like kinda conflicting results as how can it be running at 4x if AGP isn't even working? I've had these readings with PC Wizard, Everest and Sandra however.
I've tried playing with all the relevant BIOS settings like turning Fast Write on and off, forcing it to read at 8x (which still only resulted in 4x transfer) and also making sure it's trying to read the AGP slot first instead of a PCI card. I'd have put it down to just software reading it wrong, but I'm getting frequent glitches ("jumps" etc) even if I load so much as a graphically intense web page!

Any ideas guys??

Any help would be great!
