    This system has been spooky and unstabile since day one,hdd test says it's ok. I wonder if setup was wrong from mfg. Any help or opinions will be greatly appreciated as I am in way over my head. Thanks,Dyno

    Thank you for taking the time to look at the benchmark results that the Everest program returned on my system. I was hoping that someone could look at the test results and might see something that may be set wrong that would causes constant crashes and lockups . Unfortunately I just don't know where to start, perhaps the agp is set to use too much of the sys resources or something obvious. I have never done any setup work on a mobo and I'm not sure of what to do next. One thing is for sure, before it is over I just may learn something from this spooky mobo even if the I can't get it to work propperly.

    Thanks again, Dyno

  7. I would make sure it has the latest bios especially if using Wondows XP.With a Vanta video card I wouldn't go too new with video driver.Some of the older ones are more stable than others.45.23 works well.Any newer than it with the Vanta card is not needed.Also you should make sure you have the latest AGP driver.
