i just bought a athlonXP +1700 processor running at 1.47ghz and an asus A7V266 motherboard and a Elsa Gladiac920 (Geforce 3) while running Windows XP Professional and i am having loads of probs -ie: games in direct3d locking up and counter-strike locks up once in a while. but the direct3d games only play for like 20 secs before it locks up.... i have updated all chipset drivers and bios and i have updated display drivers. and i even checked to see if the geforce's IRQ was being shared with another device but it isnt... i thought it might be a setting on my mother board.... but wasnt sure... i didnt have any probs with the geforce3 with my tyan motherbord and pIII 1.0ghz. so i am kinda stressed trying to figure out what is wrong... plz help me! =]

ALSO.. When i set my motherboard bios configurations for my agp slot in the chip configurations section -ie: AGP Capabilities, AGP Fast Write,AGP Drive Strength, and Graphics Aperture Size..
after setting those... then i go back into my bios and they are back to the default settings for just those... why is it doing this???

don't know how to fix your problem, but if u checked to see if your geforce card is sharing any irq with any devices, you will see that it is...in fact, all your devices use the same irq...lol....windows xp uses shared irq to resolve conflicts...

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
