: i thought i was the only one! hell, i even spent $100 replacing my motherboard!

: goddamn savage!

: BTW, my card says 'DH Savage 4', what kind is this? I got it from a friend.

: anyway, i just saw that a bunch of you are having the same problem. the card worked fine in my old AMD K6 system, but in my new system (Athlon XP 1600+, 384mb DDR) it just shows the mouse cursor, then locks up! i have to uninstall the drivers and use Standard VGA.

: i have to say i'm relieved to be sure it's the card, and not the system.

: has ANYONE found a way around this problem?

: I have been using the latest 82038 drivers. this really pisses me off.

: by the way. i think i know WHY. i think it's the DDR ram. i remember on my other board (same board, PC Chips 830LR, but i actually broke the AGP slot trying to force in the card when i got mad :(), i first used normal crap ram. like PC66 DIMMs, and it worked fine. i put in the DDR DIMMs a week or two later, and it worked fine still for about 6 days. then i turned off the computer to change the IDE cable, and it wouldn't start anymore. i think i broke more than just the AGP slot, so with my new board, i now get the "normal" problem that some of you have gotten where it gets to the mouse cursor, then just locks up.

: my BIOS has the memory thing for the video set at 64, and AGP 4X enabled.

: that said, maybe there's no other solution than to just buy a new card. any suggestions on good cards around $150 or under? bah. i didn't want it to have to come to this.
