I need some help please.
I recently upgraded my motherboard (SOYO Dragon black edition), Video card (nvidia gforce 5200 FX), Ram 512mb DDR, but not my CPU it is an AMD Athelon 1400. I can't get the nvidia Demo Dawn to work or Orge for that matter. It starts to load plays a bit of music then crashes everytime. I am not sure what the problem is. I have downloaded the latest driver from nvidia 4.3 somthin but still nothing. Could it be my processor is to slow. Bios settings? I just dont know. I have never seen either of these demos and am dying with anticipation. If anyone knows what might be the problem please email me or post a reply to this thread. Thanks for your help guys!

It doesn't work under 98se, are you using XP?
