Acer x223w monitor - unexplained system freezes

System info:
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.

Please help.

    My LCD does have both VGA and DVI ports. I uninstalled the ATI software and drivers, then rebooted testing each connection seperately. Neither the VGA or DVI connector has changed the issue.



    Other suggestions?

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

Maximum of 1 GB per slot.
Yes, you can buy DDR400, it will be underclocked by the motherboard to DDR266. If you want some extra performance you can go in the BIOS and lower the timings one unit.
Yes, they will work, but not very fast. They should be used only as a last option.

I think that you might be asking about latency timings... Try downloading NVIDIA's Performance software. If you search google with those two words you will likely find it. When you install it, look for system settings and whatever you can change there, will be all that your MoBo allows you to change.

You dont need any driver since your PC is configured as x64 bit processor so all you got to do is get hold of the XP OS which is meant for x64 compatible PC's. The one normally used is 32 bit named as x86. I hope u wont face any difficulty in getting hold of x64 based OS(XP)......sodeep

Radeon 9550 + AGP issues on MSI KT4V


First of all, why do you bother to change all these spec? Secondly, since your screen flicked, I would suggest you just leave them like that. Your PC is just as old as mine, don't mess around with it too much.

No signal on monitor


You might try switching the VGA cable if you haven't. If that doesn't work then I'd agree with you in saying the motherboard is likely fried.

IS DDR SDRAM IS DDR II RAM OR DDR


No. DDR replaced the SD in RAM so SDRAM and DDR RAM are two completely different things but each ram type has its own frequency hence you get SDRAM 100(mhz) and SDRAM 133(Mhz) just like you get DDR 1 RAM at 266(mhz) and 400(mhz) and DDR 2 RAM at 533(mhz) and 800(mhz). Therefore as you can see how these things differ, but if your mboard takes SDRAM that it can take and frequency of SDRAM but you must ensure that all the frequencies of all your RAM modules in all your slots correspond otherwise you will have problems, meaning that if you decide to use 133mhz RAM then all your RAM modules that you use must be the same. Let me know how you go. thanks
