errrrr...Windows XP and gaming
WinXP PRO. Read my sig to see my setup.
40.41 drivers on the GeF4 (I've tried 29.42 and 30.82)
Updated VIA 4 in 1 4.42
DirectX 8.1 (b installed) working correctly
It seems that no matter what game I play - Madden2002 (the worst offender), SOFII demo, and Serious Sam, the stupid thing crashes to the desktop or restarts after playing for anywhere from 2 min to 30 min. The heat issue is not a factor (45C with a heavy load) and 3DMarks2001SE works fine. No blue screen no notice, nothing.
I have moved my FSB to 133 (standard) and nothing changes. Am I an idiot or does XP have problems with games?
