just installed xp pro and it was at agp 2x before then
video card is ati 9200se 128meg 256 ram pc3200
gigabyte GA-7VT600-L
bus switch is set to auto
bios says cpu host clock disabled
spread spectrum modulated disabled
xCPU host freq. 166mhz ( what is the x for in front of CPU)
pci/agp freq. 33/66
dram clock mhz auto
has options of 133ddr266--166ddr333--200ddr400(what do these mean) ddr ram?? my ram is ddr400 pc 3200 256mg
when enable cpu host freq. can change to 250 max and when done pci/agp changes to 50/100

these are physical CPU FSB, you need to multiply those by 2x to get the effective frequency. "xCPU host freq. 166mhz" means its running at 333Mhz effective.

"133ddr266--166ddr333--200ddr400(what do these mean) ddr ram?? my ram is ddr400 pc 3200 256mb" means this should be set to 200ddr400 for your memory.

"can change to 250 max and when done pci/agp changes to 50/100. doesnt seem to save these changes " means you are screwing up your FSB. 250 means you are asking the CPU to run at 500Mhz, not possible for a xp2700.

if you do not understand these basic things why are you screwing with your advanced chipset features? you are asking for trouble.
