Try boot into your bios and then change you agp settings from 8x to 4x in the bios it should be there.

Their website says its a 8x not both, so you are going to have to get another grafics card.

Some motherboards support both 4x and 8x. I have an 8x AGP video card, my motherboard does not support 4x.

um AGP speeds MUST be backwards compatible. google it, a 1,2 and 4x should work on an 8x... however an 8x may not work on a 4x (some will, but not many) If you dont believe me just google for agp speed backward compatible... u may just need to change voltage settings is all
