Try this reformat your pc again without using your video card, after installing Operating System (XP) instelled your motherboard software and then shut down your pc. Put the video card in its place and power on your pc, click add new program as it may pop-up after it detect your new hardware.Installed the video card software and restart your PC.

I have a problem with drivers for SIS 5598/6326 AGP in win XP whereby when I try to open GTA vice city 3, my pc freezes and sometimes it displays blue screen. So anyone help me.


Hi there
you may want to make sure that your card is compatable with the game i had to upgrade because i didnt have enough video memory which is also somthing you can check by going to device manager and going to advanced than click on performance and adjusting your video memory from there ok just becareful not to set it too high .
best regards mike

I don't what the problem is.


Firstly have you considered it is the game? try restalling

If that doesnt work, it is most likely your video card. dxdiag into run and click all the run test buttons you can see.
Update video drivers and try installing to a different pci slot.

It may be the video cards ram instead of your pcs ram.
but check the pcs ram is compatible.

A fix problem when playing any games like EA Sports FIFA 2007


Problems with this kind of "PC Freeze" or Hang Up when oppening
games or 3D accelerated applications are you dont know what part
of your PC is failing... many of this problems are very hard to fix...
first of all it might be a power supply problem.. take note that it gives the proper current for your pc to work,therefore a failing PSU
will make your PC freeze... another one is your motherboard, if you have a faulty motherboard it might make your pc freeze... this might be a video card problem too... maybe your video card is overheating or it can also have conflict with your built in VGA
try disabling your Built in VGA... try cleaning your pc with dust and try to run it again... and last is your sound card... it might have conflicts on your onboard sound chip... try disabling it at your BIOS... as ive told you its complicated because you will never be sure what part of your pc is causing the problem...
and also check if your pc is overheating...

top 5 problems are
1. Power Supply is Failing
2. Video Card is overheating
3. Faulty Motherboard
4. Your PC is overheating
5. Hardware conflicts

i wish you good luck and i hope my reply helped... :)

Freezing during gaming and monitor turning black.


i had the same problem (other video card ) and it was fixed by using other drivers ! Try a driver update. Also if u can check the temperature of the card, it may get to hot, but usualy when this happens the computer freezes completely or reboots ...If so clean it;s cooler or help it with another one (if possible ) ...
