Re: Freezing problems with a 7600GS AGP
I also have problems with my new Club 3D 7600GS AGP that I bought yesterday. On the same system I had Leadtek Winfast A400 TDH before. All else is the same, I only switched the cards. I had no problems with the old card, but with the new one the entire system just locks up or freezes sometimes. I first noticed the problem when computer froze with OpenGL screensaver running (Solar Winds). At first I thought that this happens only with OpenGL apps. Than I tried with a normal 2D screensaver (Wormhole) and sure after I let it run for a long time the computer just froze.
The system is:
* CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Dual-Core
* MB: Gigabyte GA-K8NSC, nForce 3, socker 939
* OS: Mandriva Linux 2007
* Kernel: 2.6.17
I tried drivers 1.0-8774 and 1.0-9631, but they both give the same problem.
