xp and diamond viper 770 conflicts

By papabear131 ·
There seemd to be a conflict with my diamond viper 770 and the recently upgraded xp (from 98). I've tried installing nvidia detonater xp 28.32 but my system still locks up on certain things (video). Other display items appear normal. I've also uninstalled xp, formated hard drive, reinstalled 98 then xp and still have the same problem.

Check the Device Manager for any IRQ conflicts,then go to the manufacturers web site and check the site for XP drivers

You also may want to uninstall the XP 28.32,which could be causing the problem you are expierencing,reload the drivers for Win 98

If you decide to re-install XP download the drivers for W2K,to disk and then install.

When you re-installed 98, did you install the latest drivers for the chipset on your motherboard?
What version of DirectX did you install?

Both of these have a major impact on video card performance and operation.

As to XP, did you run a Windows update, and install the XP compatability and driver updates?

The next things to check are for BIOS updates for both the motherboard and video card.
Also, check your video related BIOS settings.
Check out www.voodoofiles.com or www.tomshardware.com for setup recomendations and tweaks.
