Something going wrong with my 9800pro

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Ive reproduced it on both the newest omega and stock ATI drivers on my ATI 9800 Pro (128mb).

Whenever I try to run something in 3D (examples so far are GL Tron, the ATI Tool 3D display, and the Catalyst 3D display, also froze when trying to run Chankast a dreamcast emulator).

These will all run for a second and then the display freezes and the screen goes black as if in sleep mode.

Ive never really had this problem before and am not sure what the problem is.

Seems like its a problem with OpenGL or something.

Any help on this?

EDIT: It also just froze up on the Catalyst Deinterlace option screen with the ATI flag video.

If there's anything overclocked, try dropping it back down to stock.
If no change, maybe try a re-format of Windows and if there's still a problem is it possible to test in another machine?

No overclocking on it.

Also, this is a brand new install of Windows, I just did it last week. It was working fine on my old install.

It's probably software based then. Did you use Drivercleaner in Safe Mode when swopping drivers? Also, try a few different drivers and see if that helps. There's new 6.3 Catalysts out now.
If you still get issues, maybe a fresh re-install of windows again or a repair install. Maybe something has been corrupted in the OS.

Its not just overheating is it, is the fan running, warm to touch. Maybe try some different drivers. You havent got anything doing an automatic overclock that you dont know of maybe running anywhere?? Ati tool isnt doing anything crazy. Uninstall ati tool and see what happens.
Yay another Aussie 2 up^^

No I didnt do drivercleaner, Ill try that out and reinstall the catalysts again.

tochan: this was happening before I installed ATI Tool. The fans are spinning fine, it is kind of warm to the touch but Im not sure how hot it is really since 9800s dont have temp monitors built into them unfortunatley.

Ill try the driver thing really fast and see if that fixes it.

Well, the driver thing didnt fix it, but I suspected heat might be an issue because I had a problem with it overheating once before.

So I left my computer to cool all night and today it goes through the 3D preview without any hang ups or glitches.

Looks like I need to look into a replacment heatsink and fan.

EDIT: Well ****. It froze again so I took a look down there and the fan wasnt spinning at all. It isnt stuck on anything its just not spinning. Now I REALLY need to buy a new heatsink.

I had the same problem when I installed the newest Omega drivers, I just switched to the newest Catalyst drivers after uninstalling the omegas (using add/remove programs). I got better benchmarks than before, so I'm happy with it.

Hey,

Just had some problems with my 9800 pro as well - as for cooling, I got the Zalman VF700-AlCu for under $30, and it works great - also a very easy install.
hope all goes well for you.
