AGP video Card Installation Problems
Posted on 2004-04-14
I am working on a customers Athlon 1800XP / 256MBram. The computer has been upgraded to XP Pro and is (mostly) running very well. My customer is a keen gamer and asked me to install a Leadtek Winfast A360 TD video card G-Force FX5700. (8X AGP/128MB ram). Lastest nVidia drivers install without any problems as does DirectX, and the Winfast utility.
Under any graphics load - games etc, the colours go red, and the computer locks up. Using DirectX utilities, Direct Draw will lock up.
I have set the AGP to 4x in the bios, the aperture to 128MB or to 64MB and still the same result.
Any ideas to resolve this problem?
