I have just upgraded my PC with and now it is:

AMD X2 3600 Brisbane, MB ASrock, AM2NF3-VSTA, 2 x 1 GB DDR 667 SuperTalent, SATA HDD 120 GB, X1950 Pro (AGP)...
I have reinstalled windows XP Pro SP2 and when I tryed to run 3 MARK 2005 it always get error "infinite loop" during CPU test Canyon Flight
... event viewer says "The driver ati2dvg for the display device got stuck in infinite loop" and system error category 102 ... the same is in games...
... just to note that my card X1950Pro was normaly working before in old PC configuration! I have tried everything and I have had it enough ... :cry:

If by any chance you're overclocking try dropping back to stock settings and running the test again and see if it will complete without error.

No, I am not overlocking, at least not yet ...
I tried to find answer on forums but nothing really helps. Funny thing is that I can run 3 D MARK 2006 with no problem but not 05 version!? When I tried to play some games after few minutes I get the same error ... so no playing for me :cry: 
I have reinstalled OS XP Pro again today and it is the same ...
I have runned 3D Mark 05 like 30 times with different bios and PC setups following forum advices and nothing help ... actually I managed to complete test one time (8707 3D Marks) but with same setup I could not do it again ... I get the same error!

It would help to have the rest of you're specs.

A quick google search shows some similiar situtations stemming from motherboards and bios updates fixing the problem.

Could the problem be that my CPU is on higher GHz by default ?

How come I have error always at almost the same place in 3D MARK05, and as far as I notice it is always during CPU part of test. (I have tried to run test with other card, 9600 XT and it was working fine)... I am lost .... :cry:

OK guys, this is my current situation! I have tried all sugguestions again and only thing that made difference is this advice I copy because of my bad english:

"Right click-mouse over My Computer
Properties
Hardware(Tab)
Device Manager(button)
Click [+] next to System devices
right-mouse on CPU to AGP Controller (or whatever your controller is called, mine was SiS AGP)
Update Driver(button)

Select Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)
Next(button)
Select Don't search. I will choose the driver to install.
Next(button)
Select PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge
Next(button)
Finish(button)
Reboot."

After this all works without error but this is not option because I get arround 30-50 % les FPS and my score in 3 D MARK arround 3000 less, so ...

Can someone explain from this what is really going on ?
