Question about Computers & Internet
I have an ATI radeon 9800xt AGP 256 video card *the listed is the closest one i could find* . Ever since i upgraded with Catalyst, the video card causes my PC to crash when I play games. In the event log, i get spammed with ati2mtag errors which seems to coincide with the crashing. I have since reinstalled my driver, deleted and reinstalled World of Warcraft, and even reformatted my Pc to fix the problem. Nothing so far as worked. The crashes cause my pc to lock up and the more I play, the more frequent I crash. All of my searching indicates it's my video card causing the crashes. Is there anything I can do to fix it short of buying a new Nvidia card? Please help =/ HELLO I have a problem with my pc after replacing my video card (6800gt) with an Ati x850xt. When i try to pay games like COD4 the screen sometimes goes black and sometimes blue with letters that cannot be recognized. This is the second video card of the same type i tried and both have the same problem. I did everything to fix this issue from formating and reinstalling windows to adding new and old display drivers. I have also updated bios and mobos drivers as also remove all my computers components and replace the back again. My computer is p4 3mhz Prescott 2mgb ram ddr 400 motherboard msi 865PEM3 ILS video card ATI RADEON X850XT AGP os WXP Pro sp2. I have run out of ideas and i need help.
Hi,finally got this fixed,
decided to upgrade my pc and the case i used had temperature sensors for hdd,cpu etc,so i decided to use one of these to meassure the temp of my card and noticed that my everytime my pc crashed the temp was well above 80c,sometimes reaching 88c,
so i took the fan and heatsink of the card and found the fins of the heatsink absolutely choked solid with dust,cleaned this out and now my pc hasnt crashed since and the maximun temp is no more than 45-50c HAPPY DAYS!!!!!!!!
