    Greetings !

    All the problems started with the new graphics card fx 5700, the card was bad and i got a replacement. Triple6 had helped me with the diagnosis.
    Now I can't seem to get my second card working (random reboots and driver errors, errors on nvidia drivers

    Finally I took out my card and put back the old mx 440 and formatted the drive, did a fresh install of xp and sp 1.
    Still I get random reboots. Many a times the computer will reboot before
    loadong windows.
    I ran memtest all night no errors. Took out my ethernet card still the same problem.

    Just a thought , is it possible that the fx5700 had damaged the agp port, is there a way I can check my agp port?
    Apart from the 4in1 Via is there any further agp setting for via boards that I can use ?

    please give me a solution to this problem I don't want to go buy a new mb.

    My config
    xp pro
    amd 1.8
    dfi ad 73 pro
    ram 256 x 2
    80 gb
    gforce mx440
    sb live , firewire, tv tuner, ethernet.

    Hi,

    What kind of power supply are you using (wattage and brand name)?
    This information might help us to know what is going on in your computer.

    I had the same problem with a new mother board I bought a few months back. I ran all the diagnostics and everything. What finally tipped me off was when I put a pci video card into my system and eveything worked great. No lock-ups, driver errors or anything. If it's the same problem I had then yes, you will probably need to get a new mother board.
