I thought it was America
I'm putting together a system for a co-worker. Here are the specs

Asus A7V333
XP2100+
1024mb KVR
WD120GB
Leadtek WinFast Ti4400
Audigy
BenQ 16X dvd
Lite-On 48X12X48
PowerUp 350W ATX

Here is the problem. I won't play games run benchmarks or do anything that is graphics intensive. During Hitman II I can hear the sound but no picture thats lasts for a few seconds then the whole thing crashes. Trying Warcraft III is an instant BSOD a few seconds into the Blizard logo I have tried several drivers from both Leadtek and Nvidia. Also, I have tried different drivers fron VIA. I have tried several BIOS configurations and nothing seems to work. This guy is expecting this thing back Monday but this problem has me fu**ed up.:mad:

Edit: I updated to the latest BIOS right after installing WindowsXP

Well I checked asus's site for a bios update and couldn't find anything video related.You still might want to try a new bios but back up the old one first.

A few things you might want to try ...



1) Reseat the graphics card

2) Try another graphics card

3) check to make sure the heatsink on the GPU is seated corectly and didn't come loose during shipping
