GF3 Ti500

can someone help me? I got a gf3 ti500, and i believe it's causing my comp to freeze up.... a lot!!

it never happened b4, i'm using the WMD drivers or watever, from nvidia.com, not the detinator drivers, xp pro, 128 mb ram

and when i start wc3, or jk2, or even psx emulator, after a while of play, my comp just freezes!!! no response from pressing power button or alt tab or ctrl alt del

i am not overclocking it in anyway, i didn't even use MSI's drivers to OC it, and i don' t think it's over heating.... i had a slot fan right beside it, facing the top, where the video card fan was... so in that little space between the gf3ti500 and the slot fan, on the right, air was being sucked into blow at the heat sink of video card, and on the left, air was being sucked into blow out, for ventalation.

i took off the slot fan now, but i still get the same problem.

someone plz help??

.....but why....?
i thought the detinator drivers were something i'd get freezes from.... and they're not supported right?

if my comp sets fire, and my house burns to the ground, nvidia will say they have no responsibility fer it or something....

.....omg please someone help
it just happened again, and lowest resolution, 640x480, lowers colour settings, 16 bit, lowest models and textures and stuff, and it froze!!!!!!!

could it be cause of IRQ setup...? i remember screwing around the IRQs, cause i couldn't get my system to boot with the card at first

ok
chill y0
this is easy

First....wipe your HD clean and install XP but run off the FAT32 system to assure your current BIOS supports it, you can mess with AMIFlash l8r =]

Second, Install the detno drivers

Finally, in the bios, make sure u have agp fastwrite turned off and that you are running in AGP 4x

Lastly make sure your RAM is sequentialif it is multiple cards(this will only need to be chekt if you have ever taken it out, but if you have, it is easy to forget)

Then install JK2, patch it to version 1.04
Install WC3, Patch it to version 1.01
Now...you should be good to go

well, it's kinda like... i formated already, because i thought it would help, but still got the same prob.....

i managed to flash the bios, april 2002, so that's pretty recent. I tried JK2 once more, no probs..... so far, but i duno if it'll happen again, hopefully not, it seems like my motherboard was the prob... kinda weird.

well its not as weird as you think. if hardware is old enough, you should always flash the bios to update it to work with more current software. it fixes previous bugs and incompatibilities.

I am wondering if a dxdiag report might help.. if you want, do this:

start > run > dxdiag

save the results to a text file, copy and paste here..
