I have a computer
AMD Athlon 1200/133 on
Abit Kt7A Raid
2 IBM 20GB HDD in Raid 0
1 Quantum 4 GB HDD on 1st IDE master
and CD as slave
256 MB Infinon PC133 Ram
Gainward GeForce2 Pro/450 Grafics
Soundblaster 128 PCI
Realtek RTL 8029AS Network-Controller
it was running fine for about a year now, but I had to reinstall because of lots of changes in system that made Windows slow down.
After new Installation everything seemed fine until I began using 3D applications and Games.
Especially 3D Mark 2001 and Morrowind show following sysmptoms:
after about 2 minutes the computer drops back to Windows without giving any explanation or Error message.
I have tried now:
- Windows98, 98SE, ME, XP
- Via 4in1 drivers 424, 434, 438, 443
- Nvidia drivers 23.11, 28.32, 30.82, 40.72
- updated BIOS
- changed different BIOS settings
- the Graphics-card works fine in an P2 400 System
- the RAM does that, too
I don't know where to look for this error - which components do cause it.
I hope somebody can help.
Thank you very much.
