    Hi,

    I'm having a problem with a Gainward GeForce4 4 Ti4600 running Direct3D applications. Open GL and 2d is fine.

    When running a game/3dMark/DX Diag "Test Direct3D" the screen goes into standby mode and XP reboots. After logging in again the "System has recovered from a serious error" dialog box appears...

    Here's the spec

    AMD Athlon XP 2200+
    1 Gig PC2700 333Mhz
    MSI KT3 Ultra Mobo (VIA KT333 Chipset)
    SonicFury PCI sound
    Linksys Net Adapter
    IBM 160 Gig ATA133 HDD

    Windows XP SP2 (fully patched as of 8th Sept)
    Direct X 9c (4.09.0000.0904)
    Latest NVidia drivers installed (78.01)
    Have no conflicts in hardware setup (Window)

    Here's what I've tried:
    Older Nvidia Drivers (down to v42)
    Latest VIA 4in1 (Hyperion) drivers installed
    Tried an older Gainward GF3 and Direct3d works fine.

    I'm at a total loss as to why this is happening - would there be any settings in the BIOS that I'm missing?

    Thanks

    Have you tried the 30.81's yet? I never had any problems with the 4x.xx series though. Be sure to turn fastwrites off in the BIOS along with Video Memory Cacheable/Shadowing.

    Just might be the hardware is at fault :sad:

    "Assign IRQ to VGA" set to "yes" might also help.

    Thanks for the tips - turns out the card was knackered...
