it seems that your graphix card isn't compatable with the settings involved in "performance mode"....your hardware may not be up to the task of runningyour games in " high" mode...you would probably be better off making small tweaks..one at a time and seeing how this affectes the issues...instead of using the blanket "performance mode"

Is there no way that i can keep the setting on and still find a way to boot up normally the setting makes the games run normal its and with my older Geforce fx 5200 it runs great and boot up normally with preformance mode the moderboard guid says if i want to run this " PREFORMANCE MODE " i need better memory that is DDR SDRAM and so i got it but still same problem :tazz: :)

Just one more thing from my side : I found some clues to my problem.
About the preformance mode :
1. Before i got the new DDR SDRAM i had a 512 and 256 dimm = 768 mb
2. When i selected PREFORMANCE MODE the pc would not boot up but when i switched the 2 dimm around in each others slots the pc boots up fine until it gets past the XP loading screen the pc just restarts and this is still with PREFORMANCE MODE on. :)
3. Can somebody please tell me if the Geforce 6600 256mb card is compatible with the matsonic MS9388E
Beacause 3 other OLDER card's work and why not the new one :tazz:
:)
