PC is constantly crashing
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi,

I got a big problem and it seems like the nvidia drivers are somehow responsible for that. Everytime I am starting a 3D game (like Enemy Territory) my PC is crashing some minutes/seconds later. Crashing means the screen turns black, the fan of my FX 5900 is blowing at full speed and i cant do anything but restart the computer. The first time i recognized that problem was on Gentoo, but after trying out ArchLinux I still got this problem and already tried to solve it with some tipps i got from other people but none of these really helped me.

My PC is a AMD Athlon XP 2400+ with 768 MB DDR Ram and a NVIDIA FX 5900.

My nvidia-bug-report.log is attached.

Thanks for any help!

I have a few questions:
0) Does this problem persist if you set NvAGP to 0 in xorg.conf ?
1) Have you verified that you're using the most recent motherboard BIOS?
2) Other than enemy territory, what else triggers this crash? Does glxgears do it as well?

Thanks,
Lonni

0) I'll try that ..

1) No, i haven't upgraded my mainboard .. I cant remember it at least (its five years old ..). I'll check if there is an update available and install it if i can find an old boot disc :)

2) At the moment there is no specific application which triggers the crash i think. The last time it crashed while i was posting on this forum (with firefox).

Thanks for the reply.

Edit: The NvAGP Option doesnt change anything.

I tested it again with the "nv" driver which also crashed the pc :/ The only thing i can try now is to test it with older drivers like the 8xxx or 7xxx releases.

Go into BIOS and set the AGP rate to 2x - you will not see any difference.

My machine locks up with AGP 4x - since settings AGP 2x I have never had a machine crash (and I am running a GeForce 7600GS card now too).

Thanks for the hint but it doesnt work for me :(
The only positive thing to say is that the vesa driver is pretty stable oO
