hey

Twice now i got this error
----------------------------------
Windows - System Error

Microsoft Windows detected and reconvered from a device failure. Please save your work and reboot to restore full functionality.
----------------------------------

My screen will flicker. Then i end up in 640x480 with 4bit color with a diolog box up that says that message above. I restart and it works fine.

What is the deal with that?

Its a 9500 pro running the CAT 3.5's on a win xp pro system.

thanks for any help you can offer

Send it back to be replaced. It'll be under warranty, right?

Send it to me, I'll underclock it to make it stable and use it in my system. I've been on a Radeon DDR forever, even a heavility underclocked 9500 would be a vast improvement.

C'mon guy's....the error he's getting isnt from his Radeon going dead and you know it. He's having some other problem.
You never know though....ATi sux nuts.

You know what I hated about my 9500Pro?, it's really petty of me, but all of the capacitor's on my card were those cheap plastic-coated generic ones like they use on the knock off brands. I hate those ugly things. My card was built by ATi too. All of the nVIDIA card's I've owned have had the nice aluminum ones on them. I know it doesnt affect the performance, but when the inside of your case looks as good as mine does :wink: you appreciate and want a good looking card.

I think this forum has sunk to an all time low.
I can't believe you are complaining about the appearance of a shrink wrap plastic wrapper on an electrolytic capacitor deters from the appearance of your computer.

What is it then? is it a driver problem? a hardware conflict?

maybe i can use this as an excuse to get a 9800 pro....

Well judging from what ive read on other threads, i think this fourm has already sunk to an all-time low.

It's probably either a driver problem, heat problem, or voltage problem. But I'd gladly let you assume it's a bad card and send it to me as a donation. In fact, I'll even pay shipping. Heck, shipping is about all I can afford!

If it's bad, I'll underclock it to make it stable, and be happy! And if it's good...I'll tell you it was bad anyway, just so you don't ask for it back!

I'd just like to mention once again that the capacitors aren't as big an issue with the 'coolness' of your case as the Daisy-Window on the side of it. :tongue:

Mmm Barbie computer, but Butch Barbie! :cool:
