View Full Version : Problem with my AMD based nForce Systems

04-30-05, 01:05 PM
I have an Athlon XP 2600+ on a Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 motherboard with a Gigabyte GeForce FX5700 AGP 8x and an Athlon 64 3000+ on a Gigabte GA-K8NF939 motherboard with a Gigabyte GeForce 6 6600 GT PCI-Express x16. Both machines have the same problem. After a fresh install , after loading all the necessary drivers, my systems go straight to hell. The CD's do not want to autoplay anymore, no apps or games want to uninstall. Windows has been reinstalled many times, same problem. Both machines have been tested thoroughly for H/W problems. No hardware problems. They were not even purchased at the same time. I can only think that the nVidia Graphics drivers and/or the system drivers are to blame. I have used both the CD's versions and the ones off the Net. Same problem. Anyone have an idea what this could be and how to fix it?

When you install the latest nforce drivers, uncheck the IDE driver... try that first.

Well, considering your name, I'm surprised you use nvidia at all. ;)

i wouldnt think it would be the sound card.. but.. my audigy all of a sudden thought it would be fun to start disabling random usb ports on my pc. once i took it our, everything was fine.

the best thign to do is try it out. take the card out see how things go. if everything works, then put her back

Could it be a hardware problem of any kind? I've tried replacing the RAM, but it did not work.
