Games fail in 3D

By MaverickScot

  1. Having just assembled my PC all was working fine until I try and play 3D games such as Flight Simulator 9 or Farcry.

    The games go to black screen or reset the PC.

    I have installed all the latest drivers and reinstalled Win XP Pro. I have re-installed the old Nvidia Geforce 3 Ti200 graphics card and it still does it. I read some where that the Abit VT7 motherboard is buggy but I have the latest bios.

    Could it be that the standard settings for the motherboard are worng or could it be my memory?

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    P4 3Ghz FSB 800mhz HT
    512mb Pc2100 2.5CL
    Gygabyte Radeon 9800 Pro or Creative Geforce 3 Ti200 Video card(not installed at the same time...lol)
    400w Power supply

    44.04 for the Nvidia but when using the Radeon I'm using the latest.

    It's weird.

    Resetting has sometimes to do with memory, Try updating your BIOS. However, BE ADVISED that updating BIOS can damage your mainboard if you don`t know how to do it. Get someone who can do it,and while you`re at it,check your CPU and Mainboard temperatures, maybe your procs aver overheated.
