When I install all the newest drivers on my system (both ATI and nVidia m/b drivers) it will work perfectly for about a week. After numerous system reboots and about a week later, the computer will start up then the monitor will go into standby mode. In the ATi FAQ section it says that this was normal after the first time installation. However, this was not the first installation. The computer has been running for at least a week. I decided to leave the PC on over night to see if the video card was configuring something, the next day, it was still on standby mode. No response. The only way I could get windows to boot up again would be to uninstall the ATi and nVidia drivers drivers and then reinstall them all over again. Then the same thing would repeat itself. It would work for a short time, then go into standby mode again after numerous reboots. I sent the card in for warranty as I thought there may be a problem with it. After I got a brand new boxed version back, it started to do exactly the same thing again. I've tried formatting and reinstalling windows, still the same thing. All my hardware is brand new. I'm using the Asus ATI 9600XT 128MB card and AMD Athlon 2800+XP CPU, 512MB 400MHz PC-3200 DDR ram, Asus A7N8X-X motherboard with all the most updated drivers. Are there issues with hardware compatability?
