system Freeze-The return
Posted on 1998-04-23
I used to have a pentium 90 with intel motherboard( i think it was zappa II ,not sure) and Cirrus Logic graphic adpter ,model
cl-g4330(not sure!) .Now i got a TX430 octeck motherboard, p200 mmx intel cpu , 3.2 udma HD and CIrrus Logic graphic card(
model cl-g5446 with 2Mb) about all my new hardware I'm sure. I put my old memory into my new computer (the Tx430,200 mmx)
,the memory consist of 2 slots of 4Mb and 2 slot of 8Mb, a total of 24MB ( I think the last 2 slots are EDO). Now everything is fine
exept that when running games such as :Red alert , Dark reign and appl's such as Digital orcestrator plus and so on , the system
suddenly frezzes and only reseting the computer is possible,so it's not so fine afterall. things like that didn't happen in my old
I thought the problam was in the directX 5 that i have but i have problems in dos mode and in appl's that doesn't use the directX.
I suspect it's or the old memory or the graghic adapter (cl-g5446).
I tried using only the 2x8Mb EDO (it was ViperOne Answer, so ViperOne "it didn't work!") but the problam hadn't been solved.another note , I was told that my memory is not "parety" or somthing like that, how is that got to do with the problam?
I notice somthing new, after i install my graphic adapter(cl-g5446) and try to run Red alert, a massege tells me "Unable to find primary display driver", in the directX setUp the line "Primary Display Driver" says "no hardware support" .I tried to install again the directX and the graphic card but still the line "Primary Display Driver" says "no hardware support"
I know it's not easy but please help me.
ViperOne try harder this time!
waiting for help as soon as possible.
thanks in advance
