Default Behavior

SIS AGP Bus Filter is a kernel device driver. In Windows 7 it won't be started if the user doesn't start it. If SIS AGP Bus Filter fails to start, Windows 7 attempts to write the failure details into Event Log. Then Windows 7 startup should proceed and the user should be notified that the sisagp service is not running because of the error.

1. Run the Command Prompt as an administrator.

2. Copy the command below, paste it into the command window and press ENTER:

The sisagp service is using the sisagp.sys file that is located in the %WinDir%\system32\DRIVERS folder. If the file is changed, damaged or deleted, you can restore its original version from Windows 7 installation media.
