my system specs are:
win xp pro os
2gb ddr2 ram
ATI x850xt pcie gfx card
AA8 ABIT mobo
ive tried installing latests and original drivers for the gfx card, but it hasnt done anything. although i noticed the new 5.6 catalyst drivers freeze my system around only 5 minutes into a game. i also get the same freezing problem when running 3dmark, a gfx benchmark program. the only clu i have is from event viewer, which says the following under systems tab
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000fe (0x00000002, 0x87018008, 0x86fd3208, 0x897bf458). A full dump was not saved.
according to what ive researched so far, this might be a RAM problem with faulty memory. however, i can not test my ram rite now, becuz i do not have a floppy drive installed.
im definately hoping this is not a gfx card related issue, because i spent 460 bucks on the 850xt. according to EVEREST, my cpu temps around 32 idle and 50 under load, although im not sure if this is really accurate, since i heard mobo temp sensors are very innacurate. my gfx temps are around 60 under load, and 42 idle, so i dont think the fan is faulty.
im really at a loss for what to do right now. any help would be appreciated.
