    Hello Everyone,

    I've twice installed FCP HD and everytime I go to open FCP in
    Applications it pops up with "Configuration Error: This software
    requires certain hardware or software which is missing: AGP Graphics
    Card." I called the rental house for the G4 I'm using and they say it
    does indeed have an AGC Graphics Card. They told me to contact FCP
    support. Getting that # has been a failure for me, so if anyone has the
    number or a possible solution, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Nicole

    The only incompatible models of a Power Macintosh G4 (PCI Graphics) are:
    <http://www.apple-history.com/?page=gallery&model=g4pci&performa=off&sort
    =date&order=ASC>: 350Mhz or 400Mhz models with a dark grey fascia plate
    and apple logo in the side.

    If you have ensured that you don't have one of the incompatible models
    described above, then you may need to ensure that there is an AGP video
    card installed and in use:
    1) Open up the Macintosh
    2) There should be three PCI card slots on the main board. There
    should be another AGP slot occupied with a video card. Your
    monitor should be connected to this AGP card.

    If you still can't find this, then run the System Profiler
    (Applications>Utilities) and copy and paste the Hardware Overview
    information so we can see what type of Mac you have,

    Cheers,
    Bill Lee
