I had to reduce my motherboard speed from 133/33 to 100/33 in order to get it to work. Is this normal, or do I have a bad card? I know I'm overclocking it at 133/33, but my previous Radeon 7200 worked fine with these settings. Time to buy a new motherboard, or...?

Now I just got an XP "device failure" even running at 100/33. The screen went completely haywaire, and after a while the PC rebooted itself, at which point XP said that "the device driver RADEON 9500/9700 PRO failed to complete a drawing operation". Please contact the device driver manufacturer, etc, etc. Any ideas?

It could be heat-related. The PC had been running for several hours when it failed, however it wasn't even being used, so not much of a challenge for the video card. I haven'y modified the cooling at all - how hot do these 9500 Pros usually run?
