Windows protection fault with Abit PX5 and Viper 330 PCI
Posted on 1998-04-27
Can a Viper 330 PCI video card work with an Abit PX5 motherboard?
I just installed a new Abit PX5 motherboard and a Diamond Viper 330 PCI in my system, but Windows 95 won't load into Normal mode. Diamond's site says that I need to reserve an IRQ for the video card, but the PX5 BIOS has two settings: Disable and Auto, and neither works.
I can get Windows to load one time (and with several conflicts) if I remove the PCI driver and restart, but then Windows reloads it automagically and I'm back to where I was before. Ick!
