I am getting so tired of Windows XP..... All my games have been running smooth and without any problems for a mighty long time now. But the other week I bought "The Thing" - game..played it and it was running perfect...until suddenly the graphics got corrupted..and there it was...."blah blah..stuck in an infinte loop".. Restarted the computer..started the game..played for ... like 30 minutes..and there it was!!! once again. bummer!! And ... I use the 30.82 driver these days..as some game produced weird graphics with the new beta ones.. I have installed the latest Intel Chipset drivers and Intel Application Accelerator... Just Being curious..I reinstalled my computer with Windows ME (got nothing better in life to do so... )..and use the 30.82..chipset driver...Intel Application Accelerator..and so on... And the game now runs perfect!. Sat last night for 3 hours (yes, I really do not have anything better to do!!.. ) and it ran perfect..not a singel hickup at all!!!! Is there any solution to the "Infinite loop" problem or will I have to stay with Windows ME to run my games KNOWING it will not suddenly crash?...kind of miss XP... I have gone throught all the previous "loop"-solutions (veteran in the matter) and got rid of it when I change the placings of the SDRAM to other banks..and done all the suggested BIOS changes (according to Viaarena) and finally I left VIA behind me and went for Intel..which was the big cure... But now I am haunted again.... The ONLY thing I have not done (so far) is tried the game with 40.72 Beta driver with Windows XP. Now...is there anyone out there with a magical solution to it ... or will the Windows Xp community lose me to Windows ME??.. Please Save me!!!
