Regarding my new mainboard, bought recently (Gigabyte GA-7VT600-1394), I’ve installed it, reinstalled Windows XP (SP1) and everything seemed to work fine, until I wanted to play Half-Life 2, listen to MP3s or edit video.
The thing is, when I play, or listen, or edit, the computer just hangs - and the reset button is the only thing that helps.
I’m very stranged by the situation by myself, as I have never experienced such behaviour…
My config would be :
Gigabyte GA-7VT600-1394, AMD Athlon XP 1700+, 1GB PC2100 DDR-SDRAM (bought right here), Gigabyte GA-RV955128D (Radeon 9550), CMI8738 Sound Card, VIA FireWire Controller (OHCI compilant), Western Digital WD800JB, Maxtor 6Y160P0, and the drives listed in the signature
I’m thinking - maybe some sort of memory error? I wanted to run a test in memtest86+, but it takes so damn long - and besides, when memory errors occur, Windows returns a STOP error - BAD_POOL_CALLER, and that doesn’t happen!
Hope you can help
Thank you in advance
