Have a look at Loubush's epic forum post about his troubles running an ATI Radeon card in a dually box using Win2K. He wrote and asked me if I knew anything about problems with SMP and Radeons after reading my recent Radeon review, but I haven't run one in a dually box, so I wasn't much help. The dude's box is just locking up on him:
I have now removed the ATI W2K drivers using the “Add/Remove Programs” icon in Control Panel and, prior to re-booting, I have searched for all references to ATI on my hard drive by using search ati*.* Once found I have deleted them. I have also used the “Registry Editor” and removed all ATI folders in HKEY_Local_Machine\Software and also in HKEY_Current_User\Software. On rebooting I am back to my user friendly VGA driven screen with 16 colors and a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels.Not pretty. Any of you guys have any insights? Please post replies in the forum, not as comments on this news item. Thanks.
THE SYSTEM NOW WORKS PERFECTLY AGAIN – IT MUST BE THE RADEON DRIVER DOES NOT LIKE MY DUAL PENTIUM III 550mhz SCSI ONLY SYSTEM WITH IDE DISABLED.
As soon as I install any Radeon Driver the system starts to perform random system hangs again.
