ok...so my story begins. Originally I was running Windows ME on this platform..everything ran well with only a few problems, all my games worked. PIII 733mhz 512mb pc133 30gb ATA 100 modem 40x rom cd re-writer Voodoo 4 4500 QDI Advance 10f motherboard THEN I upgraded to windows XP and everything went tits up! None of my games work, they either hang the machine or reboot it, I try to get some decent drivers for the voodoo but none of them seemed to work. I tweaked the settings and still nothing. SO I changed my Vid card thinking it was becuase there aren't any "official" drivers for voodoo's anymore I now have an ATI radeon 64mb 7200 I wiped my hard drive and reinstalled XP so that everything was detected fresh. and used all the latest drivers for everything. my games worked!!! well.....one of them for about 10 mins before it hung again. I'm starting to suspect my motherboard is not compatible so if anyone else is using a QDI Advance 10f board could you tell me if your having probs? Also if anyone has any ideas for a solution...before I put ME back on...I would appreciate it.
