first thing is that Ghost Recon, a multiplayer online game crashs, and I have all the updated drivers for my graphics card and sound card. Also i have dl and installed the Directx 9.0b. so I am in the process of of trying to update my bios and my A: will not format or I can not make a reboot floppy. Well I guess thats it for now. But there are more problems.

are you using am nvidia card with latest drivers and or a via chipset?

did you check the above knowledge base for other causes? if not listed type info into "search text" box

  AleFerTai 22:48 01 Mar 2004

Yes Huggy, Iam using the nvidia card and VIA chipset. I checked the link you pasted above and dl and installed the older drivers as they said, and it still crashes. Iam going insane. Any other help would be appreciated. It is probably aggrevating, but appreciated just the same.

If you have been using Detonator drivers you will need to download and run Detonator Destroyer to completely rid your system before you install new drivers.

Have you tried this ?

  AleFerTai 02:09 02 Mar 2004

No Indigo, Im sorry. I dont know what detonater drivers are.
