Computer crashing for unknown reasons (mostly 3D Usage)
Posted on 2006-11-27
Ok my computer (mostly) randomly stops, waits 10 secconds, blanks the screen, then ati VPU recover kicks in and everything comes back but i'm unable to do anything 3D afterwards.
I have tryed 2 gfx cards ATI radeon 9000 and ATI Radeon 9250. I have tryed various Bios settings and both the offical ati drivers and the Omega ones.
at the moment with the 9000 in i am even unable to play unreal tournament in either directx or opengl
My computer specs are as follows:
Tyan Tiger T230 Motherboard
2 x PIII 1.13ghz
512mb +128 MB Ram
(Currently) Ati Radeon 9000
130gb hd + 320gb hd
Windows XP SP2
