Question about ASUS A7N8X Deluxe (A7N8X/DELUX D) Motherboard
Windows XP Home (SP2)
Soyo KT400 Ultra Mobo
AMD XP 2500+ CPU
1 GB DDR RAM @ 400 MHz
ATI Radeon x850 graphics
680 W power supply
This system configuration has worked for me a long time with my simple CRT monitor. I had no issues with doing whatever I asked it to. In the interest of saving desk space, and getting more viewing space I decided to buy an Acer x223w LCD monitor. This is where thing start to go bad.
I hooked it up and my system/graphics card found it fine, and WinXP loads up fine. I can do almost anything without issue, except play any sort of game. The game will load up fine, but after a very short period the system locks and screen freezes. It seems that when the system is put under 3D rendering stress with this new monitor, everything craps out. I am forces to hard boot the system, but encounter the same thing everytime.
I have checked and changed display settings in attempt to resolve this, but found nothing. The only other thing that changed was my physical removal of the CRT, and hook-up of the LCD. I have not at this point hooked the CRT back up, because I want to move away from it.
Is your lcd has a dvi port? aside from vga? and also is your video card has a dvi port? if all these questions meet, first uninstall the driver of your video card. Then, you need to switch your cable, in order to do this, you must place the one end of your cable to the dvi port of the cpu and the other end to your lcd dvi port. and reinstall the driver again of your video card. see if it works. because there is a certain problem that vga port configuration differs from the
dvi port. that's why when playing games, especially online games. sometimes your system will get corrupted.
Good luck! have a nice day
