Have you even bothered looking for others maybe having driver install problems too ? You certainly act like you work for ATI because you never even acknowlege that at one point or another ATI or anyone else could be responsible for the problems but myself.
Why donÂ´t you look over at Rage3D for instance see this thread. It clearly shows that someone else had the exact same driver installation problems I had with the Radeon 9600 card.
Of course this guy too has faulty hardware because cleary you go by the saying: "If I havenÂ´t heard of it, it doesnÂ´t exist!" I am getting soooo mad at you ! :mad:
I am sure at one point in time I may finde someone else having my freezing problems. In fact there are a few people on the Asus boards forum moaning about system freezes with TV cards and HT enabled using ATI cards. So maybe, just MAYBE I am not causing those freezes by using faulty hardware or my inferior knowledge.
I would suggest not fighting anymore about this. Believe what you want, I will do the same. No need to agree on this matter.
Well, under the processes tab it does not say if a process crashed or anything and under the programs tab, the only program running is the videoplayer/TV app and it also does not say " does not respond or anything", the system simply freezes up.
I tried all voltage settings from auto to 2.85 for memory, all the AGP voltages and quite a few processor voltages. Did not change anything.
I recently tried older BIOS versions for my mainboard because a guy at the Rage 3D forum who claims he has similar problems suggested that a very old BIOS version did the trick for him. Unfortunately it did not help me.
Stefan, Xayd, I certainly agree with your statements and observations. I will try to keep looking for others with similar problems. There may be some after all even though their problems are slightly different ( for instance, only freezes if TV card is present etc. )
Once again, thanks for your help !
|I can understand why others may have doubted your troubleshooting technique, but I suspect that was mostly a communication issue.|
|first and foremost, if your not running xp, then hyperthreading should be turned off. hyperthreading is only supported by xp. it will cause instability and decrease performance in all other windows operating systems. second of all, with any new chipset, you MUST keep up to date with bios revisions, with every new bios, performance increases, and compatability issues are reduced. id bet a million bucks that those who are having problems with hyperthreading are all running windows 98 or 2000 and/or have never flashed the bios to the latest version.|
