Default Behavior

VIA AGP Bus Filter is a kernel device driver. In Windows 7 it won't be started if the user doesn't start it. If VIA 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 viaagp 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 viaagp service is using the viaagp.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.
