Thats wierd, might be something in your BIOS - default graphics card, something along those lines..

How can you have a AGP 8X in an AGP 4X slot, didn't know that was possible..

Well, if it means anything, the motherboard has onboard video.. yet I can't seem to find an option to disable it.. however it is set to go to the AGP slot before the onboard...

No, it's not an OS on top of another OS. It's just VNC.. I don't have a keyboard on that computer so I have to use VNC to control it.
