View Full Version : Ram trouble

01-05-00, 05:40 PM
My computer has an Abit BH6 mb, 64 ram, celeron 300A @300, and an Asus riva tnt. Sometimes it won't boot, and if it does it locks right after the background comes up. If I get this far it runs pretty well until I try to run an opengl game. It freezes. D3d seems to work.

After having tried to change graphics cards, memory, hard drive - without success - I could really use some advice from you guys.

Please help me!

Get the updated drivers for OPENGL.

i'm not so sure that updated OpenGL drivers are the answer to your question.

what OS are you running? 95, 98, NT, Win2000, Linux?
that information is very important.

Might wanna try flashing your BIOS with the latest update, follow the BIOS flashing instructionz PRECISELY, STEP BY STEP or else you can mess up your MB.

You said you tried different video cards and memory already?

Flash BIOS

Update Drivers and get DX7

Run Scandisk

Maybe even a reinstall of windows is neccassary assuming your using windows.

Riva TNT cards have a couple of setup issues,
#1 Video bios shadow :OFF
#2 Video bios Cacheable:OFF
#3 Memory hole at 15-16Mb http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/biggrin.gifISABLED
#4 Onchip usb:ENABLED
This is a good place to start and is recomended by riva for most chipsets and you could also try running riva generic reference drivers, get them from the riva website. good luck!
