    Asus Radeon 9800XT


    I have an Asus Radeon 9800XT Graphics Card.

    I have the latest 4.2 drivers installed, I have had the card for only 2 weeks replacing my Ti4600. I use FS2004 a lot and bought this card for better performance. However, I can only run for around 15 minutes until the screen freezes the crashes to desktop with the following message:- 'VPU recover has reset your graphics accelerator as it was no longer reponding to graphics driver commands'
    Sound familiar? I would be most grateful for any advice. I e-mailed Asus 11 days ago with no reply. I e-mailed ATI 4 days ago with no reply yet.

    My System:-

    P4 2:53 533 ( Not overclocked)
    XP pro + SP1
    Asus P4S8X mobo
    Audigy Sound
    Crucial 2 x 512MB P2700 DDR Ram
    40GB Maxtor HD
    Samsung 19" Syncmaster Mono
    Thermalake Cooling
    400W PSU

    Many thanks - please help!

    almost sounds like a heating issue. can you post the temps when idle and when your using FS2004. also you can take the side off and see what the temps are like with the side off.

    Did you run a "Driver Cleaner" to remove all traces of your old Nvidia card's drivers before installing the ATI card?

    I would update everything like Rev suggested, then uninstall your drivers and do as Conan Driver Cleaner to remove both Nvidia & ATI traces.

    In your bios disable 'FastWrites' then after you install the ATI drivers go in advance settings and disable 'VPU recover' .

    Your 9800XT monitors temps so as phishhead suggest, check them out.
