Anyone know any good ones. I used to be able to go to gamefaqs for most help but not these days. Any suggestions and, if any of you guys are computer savvy, take a stab at this problem...
copied from another forum.
So I keep getting this BSOD, it flashs too quicky to get any other info oscreen except this.
But the story goes a little deeper. Yesterday I got a message from ATI control center that said the GPU (Radeon x1600 512, PCI express) had been reset, I shut off my computer for the day. I turn on my compter today and the monitor is set to 800x600 and is at 4-bit color, and no matter what I try to do I cannot change this. Every possible way to adjust the resolution fails.
I reinstall the ATI drivers I had downloaed when I got the card, roughly two months ago. SUCCESS! Oh wait, it works for around ten minutes and a few second after I open a torrent program I get a crash, and the BSOD above.
Restart, windows won't load, goes directly to BSOD. I restart in safe mode, works ok, reloaded the ATI Drivers (I can't seem to download the new ones anyone ever have that prob?). So now with the drivers installed I have the same old problem of 800x600 4-bit color that can' change, cept' now it won't go back to normal like it did before. I have since uninstalled the driver and all ATIO programs and am typing this in 1280x1084 32-bit but if I load the drivers I get a crash.
I had gotten the same BSOD about five months ago but it proved to be a faulty memory chip, the memory now is new. Here are my full stats.
Windows XP SP3
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2.01 Ghz
BFG nForces 4 Ultra mobo pci express
1gb Dual channel Ram
Two old drives CD and DVD
120 Gig HDD
on board audio
As an update I've been running it without the Radeon drivers as thats the only way to acheive a normal resolution and bit range. I just can't do anything graphical, which is mucho obnoxious.
