I have a
ATI Rage128 Pro AGP 4x Video Adapter

I have the latest driver installed but computer still freezes on occasion. I have contacted ATI and gotten no response (several times)

Any ideas on what could be causing the freezes and how to fix the problem?

Do you have any antivirus or firewall software (such as ZoneAlarm) installed?

Make sure your BIOS is set up for AGP as the primary display adapter and that the bus is at 4X if it supports it. Excocet is correct about the AV software...I could never play Max Payne unless the AV software was disabled.

I do have Norton Firewall and Anti-Virus installed.

I also have my BIOS set to PCI.

Just to be sure, you are saying it should be set to AGP instead?

64 or 256 MB in BIOS?

Thanks

Yes, you have a 4x AGP video card that's plugged into your motherboard's AGP slot. You'll want to switch the setting from PCI to AGP. If it asks for AGP aperture, that will depend on how much SYSTEM memory you have installed. For instance if you have 256MB of SYSTEM memory installed, you may want to share like 32M or 64M of SYSTEM memory with the VIDEO.

I have switched to AGP in my BIOS, however, the only two choices that I have in BIOS concerning RAM are 64 and 256.
I have 384 MB of RAM installed on my system.

Which one should I use?
