X800GTO crashes comp, sometimes

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have a friend who me and another friend made a computer for.

We got him an X800GTO because it was cheap ($90 on newegg) and had some decent specs.

During the first few months everything worked really nicely, he was playing games and doing stuff a normal teenager does on a computer.

Then, recently, he has not been able to play a lot of select games.

CS:S crashes usually right at the title screen after 4-5 seconds.
Guild Wars: Nightfall crashes at title screen (only if AA is on).
BF2142 crashes 4-5 seconds after entered into a game.

WoW works perfectly.
Older games with simpler graphics all work perfectly and fast.

We have narrowed the problem down to the graphics card via testing with another gfx card that works fine.

I suspect it has to do something with the AA because in GW: F the game runs fine on full settings w/o any AA. All the other games that crash use AA and since it is a pretty decent card, it would probably be set as a default setting in most games.

Not sure about WoW, it runs fine with full settings.

Any ideas? I can get more info about the computer if you need it.

P.S. Pretty sure the card is a POWERCOLOR but I'm not 100% sure.

P.P.S. It is the PCI-E version, sorry bout that.

latest drivers? shop around for modded drivers if not they might do the job (http://downloads.guru3d.com/).

Ok, I'll send him the omega drivers and have him try them out.

Thanks for the tip.

Ok, sorry for the double post, but I gave my friend the omega drivers (3.8.352 or something) and it sort of fixed his problem. It seems that whenever he turns on anti-aliasing, the game will freeze, no matter any of the other settings. But if everything else is turned up way high, it will still run fine as long as AA is off.

These new drivers actually boosted the speed of some games too, noticeably for me as well.

Thanks for the fix!

The X800GTO is Shader Model 2 so it cant support AF and AA at same time maybe thats the problem? try disabling Anistrophic filtering and put AA on.

My old X800GTO did AA and AF on 24/7 not a prob, OCed too. PS 2.0 has nothing to do with AA/AF.
