Default Change AGP setting on ATI 9200?

Hi. My friend just got battlefield 2 and he has a radeon 9200. I know it doesnt say it supported on the box, but many people have used them in the game. Now to get it to work he needs to go to the ATI settings, go SMARTGART and then change the AGP settings from 8x to 4x. I have a 9600pro and i can do this. Other people that have 9200's have been able to do this. But he doesnt the SMARTGART area. This is what he has:


Now does anyone know a way he can change the AGP settings from 8x to 4x then?

Thanks a lot in advance for any help.

There will be a option in the BIOS for it.

Cisco CCNA, Comptia A+, 1/3 through CCNP

Before the program will let you change to 8x you will have to have the option in your BIOS enabled so it can do 8x, unless his motherboard don't support 8x cards.
