Not long ago I installed a new XFX Nividia 5200 card into my old desktop (1.1Ghz AMD running Windows ME). Since then I've gotten some errors and it falling to a blank screen and so forth, but it wasn't too often so I didn't think much of it. Last night I installed 512MB of new RAM in, and it booted up fine, detected the RAM, and all seemed well. However, in about 1 minute or two, the blue screen of death started coming up, or the screen just went black, and I'd have to reboot. Later on that night, though, again, the screen just went black - and I noticed it seemed to do it right when a window would be popping up. This morning I thought maybe it wasn't the new RAM after all so I took out the old RAM and put in the new stick of 512, booted up, everthing seemed fine. Just to test it I went to run MS Pinball Arcade, and as soon as I did, this error came up:
VDD(03) + 00001816 Error: 00 : 0028 : C023ID9E
I pushed Enter to return to windows, the error came up again. Pushed enter again, and I did return to windows, but the screen was frozen. Another reboot, and while it was doing that I came in here to ask this question. Is it the new RAM? The new video card? I've downloaded the current drivers already. Any ideas? Thanks!!!
