Hercules 3D Prophet 9600 XT (Radeon) Graphics displaying causing memory dumps

  1. Hi,

    If anyone can give me info or suggestions for solutions on this it would be greatly appreciated, since none of the manufacturers seem to know.

    My Machine:

    Pentium 4 2.8GHz Processor
    MSI Neo-2 PFS (Platinum) Mobo
    Hercules 3D Prophet 9600 XT
    512MB Ram
    160GB HDD
    16x LG DVD-ROM
    CD-RW drive ( Cant remember the speeds, not that it matters)
    17" 16ms BenQ LCD Monitor
    Windows XP Professional

    The Problem:

    I run the graphics on AGP 8x as per the recommended setting.
    I have being struggling for sometime now trying to figure out why my machine performed a memory dump or rebooted when even the smallest amount of graphics was used, this ranged from Windows Media Player Visualisations to the graphics is FarCry or UTK4. I had contacted Hercules, MSI, especially ATI and even Microsoft and none have come back with any solutions or suggestions. I then took a chance and disabled the AGP Fast Write, AGP Write and Read, as well as PCI Read and Write via the Control Center. Thus my problem was resolved. BUT, now i cannot view DVD Movies, re-enabling the settings allows me to view the DVD for about 5 Minutes and then it reboots or performs memory dumps. I have tried different combinations but it does not seem to help.

    Does anyone have any sort of suggestion or solution for me?

    :confused:
