X800pro crashing
 
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=293078

this is the issue...no modding done to card, system running bone stock(asus k8v-x) 2x512mb pc3200 HyperX 2-3-2-6-1. A64 3500+ 754 newcastle.

Fastwries are enabled.

Crashes happen during 3dmark05, NFSU2, and Half-Life2. ends up as a hard freeze.

Ideas?

Try flashing the BIOS to another stock x800pro. You never know ;)

it's really wierd...the card has never been flashed (only one i could stop myself from trying, as it's the wife's), but i have heard of some bioses performing better than others. I almost want to say that the memory is fubar'ed....every so often, it willfreeze and everything goes like it was memory artifacting, but i don't really think it was the card...It still has that "new" smell! Because of this, I don't want to try flashing bioses as i may need to RMA the bastid.

Driver version is CATALYST 4.12. I can run atitool all day long. I can aquamark all day long. But those 3 games, they crash. And all 3 are real system punishers. I'm kinda leaning towards hypertransport...
