lord hankey -> Radeon 9800pro and Black screen (1/26/2005 12:58:50 AM)
When HL2 come out i buy silver pack, install it and play it, finish it WITHOUT PROBLEM.
my spec at this timespec that is pertinant for game)
Radeon 9800Pro 128MB
win XP (NO SP2)
MOBO = 4X
Yesterday i get my new computor, i installed normal stuff, and installed STEAM, and all other game. i wanted to replay HL2 with better graph fps etc.
but at some point(random) my screen, yes like some of you, become black and i must reboot. it is same for CS S. for now i dont know about other game but i will try.
MY PRESENT SPEC:
Radeon 9800Pro 128MB(SAME CARD)
Win XP WITH SP2
MOBO = 8X
So i use the same card. and i played HL2 without any probleme befor and now this.... ALL DRIVER are the lastest one. DX 9.0c installed. So for now i think it is a overheated problem. it is the more LOGIC reason why this can be happen. so did the fact that it is a 8X now can help to overheat , if i change it for 4X(in bios setting IF IT IS POSSIBLE) will help to resolve this. i thin to buy 2 fan for inside the box too
so DID ANY ONE have try to get an answer from ATI
and did anyone have resolve this probleme WITHOUT ANY HARD WARE STUFF, so this may tell that is NOT an HW problem
i will post a message too ATI and see if they may help.
i post same msg to Valve STEAM forum.
