    i have some sort of hardware issue, but i haven't been able to narrow it down... all my games are crashing, giving me the main .exe file as the app name and mod name in windows error reporting... is it possible that my radeon 9200 is conflicting with the nvidia chipset on my motherboard ?(gigabye GA-7N400-L) i have the newest drivers for both, and all my windows updates (except SP2)... all other system drivers look ok, and i have the newest directx... it started happening the first time i put a game on after a fresh format/reinstall of XP
    what's going on???

    Many people use ATI cards with Nforce boards - this is not a problem.

    It sounds like faulty memory or a driver issue. Try uninstalling your video card drivers and installing the ones that came with the card. You could also try differnet NForce drivers - if you downloaded teh NForce drivers from NVidia then try the ones from teh motherboard manufacturer - they are sometimes customized.

    You should also run DXDIAG from Start -> Run, and run all the Video and Sound Diagnostics.

    hi peeps,

    Back in days of old when I had the 9800 Pro and a NF2 (A7N8X) board, I did experience this problem too. I got it fixed in the end by installing things in a correct order. I really should write a diary because I'm struggling to remember the order - very sorry. Have you tried running with the generic MS driver? I'm sure it was a Catalyst issue that actually caused the crash but of course in the long run you have to get it to work. Sorry, this is so vague. I'll have a scout around to try and jog my memory.
