AMD Thunderbird????

By labud15 ·
Can someone give me some advise. My computer freezes at least 2 to 3 times a day.

I have a Thunderbird 800 on an : ASUS A7V/550/WOA/5P-U P/N:M7A065-WOU
MotherBoard.

Graphics : ASUS V7700DELUXE/N/32M/U p/n:C1V085-CU AGP
Windows Millenium,256MB 133Mz SDRAM, 20GIG Western Digital 7200RPM
PCI 3-COM Ethernet card 3C905C-TXM.
No Modem, a Sound Blaster AudioPCI

Looks like I have a compatibility problem between the mother-board and the Video card.
Do Asus have a patch of some sort tocorrect this very anoiying problem.

Thank-You

check out Microsoft knowledge base

by maishomo In reply to AMD Thunderbird????

I have always resolved hardware conflict problems by checking out Microsoft Technet knowledge base CD. Get to write down what kind of error that is occuring and run Technet knowledge base or Technet Technical Information. You will get detailed information on where the problem might be accuring and the fixes available. I have had this in lots of cases. If u don't have Technet, check out msdn.microsoft.com
If no solution, contact me personally

lockups

by labud15 In reply to lockups

The system just freeses. I noticed it seems to freeze more often when I'M surfing with my scholing mouse.... It'S a cordless logitech mouse. I decided to install the logitech software for the ITouch cordless kybd & Mouse. Helps a little, less freezes, but still freezes, I'd say once a day.

No blue-screen, nothing like that. Just freezes on whatever screen I was on. Really looks like a compatibility issue with the mother-board & VIdeo card. Or like a memory problem. I swapped the 2 dimms around, still very intermittent!!

might be the sound card

by solsen In reply to AMD Thunderbird????

this Via chipset sometimes has problems with sound blaster cards. you should pull it and see if you still lock up. also disable onboard sound - may be a conflict there.
