I am trying to instal the xstasy 9100 pci as a second video card to drive a second crt monitor. at the end of the installation process while direct x9 is being installed i get the error, the instruction at 0x772200e4 referenced memory at0x001632c8 the memory could not be read. then my machine would give an error message and go into safe mode on reboot. I tried uninstalling the 9100 drivers to no avail. had to do system restore. tech support at visiontek said card was not compatible or that I might need special drivers. Tiger direct where i bought the card said it is compatible. they both use the radeon core and hydravision software.
Any advice will be apreciated.

My system,
Athlon xp2400 cpu
Gigabyte GA-7vaxp mb with promise onboard raid controller
kingston value ram 512ddr pc3200 400mhz

1) I would get the latest drivers for both cards.

2) Check the radeon site for compatability.

3) Try using original Radeon drivers rather than 3rd party if possible.

4) Check that your RAM is OK, use a RAM test like
