PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Win XP with SP2
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Ati Sapphire Radeon 9200SE 128Mb
Error Messages:None

Please help.

Today I removed my old geforce 4 MX440 AGP card and removed the drivers. I then fitted an ati radeon sapphire 9200SE 128Mb AGP card.
All went well, drivers installed ok even downloaded the latest radeon driver. Now when I boot up into windows, my PC turns itself off regardless of what you are doing in windows after about 2-3 mins. Spent most of the day looking for anything shorting and gave my pc a thorough clean. Eventually refitted my old geforce card and have'nt had a prob since.

System specs: ECS K7VTA3 ver6 mobo, Athlon XP2500+ CPU, 512 Mb DDR ram, Windows XP Home Ed with SP2 installed. All drivers up to date.

I've heard that some ATI graphic cards don't play nice with AMD processors...now obviously you know its you vid card causing the problem. Something is definately incompatible.

Thanks geek girl

Will have a look at ati website to see which of their graphics cards are compatible with my cpu. Have even spoken to microsoft to see if there was a glitch in win xp sp2 I was told to run several virus scanners online to make sure there is no virus. I have norton internet security with norton anti virus 2005, all these scanners did was pick up what norton had quarantined. Have several other procedures to try so will post reply to what I find out.
