View Full Version : AMD 64 3200+ Problem

03-21-05, 06:44 AM
I just bought an AMD64 3200+ 939 and a Gigabyte GA-K8N Ultra 9 mobo with 2x512 Kingston HyperX PC3500. My video card is a eVGA 6600 GT PCI-e. My problem is when I 'm playing a game, the game just stops and my screen is frozen except for the mouse. Then after about 30 seconds it unfreezes and everything is fine. Anyone have any suggestions?

Dude with 1GB Ram, you should NOT have that problem. The only thing I can think of is that you're muti-tasking big time and the swapfile is going nuts paging in and out, or, you have a slow hard disk.

Check your pagefile size and up it to 2~3GB. Try that.

Any updates on this? Do you have all the required Windows and Driver updates?

I would look at your graphics card voltage there perhaps.
But this could be mobo specific too, check out their support forums for detailed information on that particular board.

heat. how is your cooling in your pc?

All drivers are up to date, the temp is running under a load at about 33C. THe paging file was already set between 2-3GB. I don't know about the graphics card voltages, I installed it with the defaults.

Looks like fastwrite issue, try disabling it if its on.

For some reason, Nvidia graphics cards sometimes have issues with nvidia chipsets... funny eh?

That's definately a fast write issue.

That's definately a fast write issue.

Yep... I would think so to.

It seems like fastwrites turned off help some people but it is not a definate fix. i still have the same problem with my AMD setup and i have fast writes off and don't overclock the vid card. I sure wish someone would find a solution to this problem once and for all.

How do I turn fast write off?

go into your bios and it's under the section called Advanced Settings or Advanced Chipset Settings, or something similar

I looked all through the bios and couldn't find it.

It's also in the Nvidia video card control panel in the AGP settings tab.

I don't have an AGP section because my card is a PCI-e.
