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.

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.

Not pretty. Any of you guys have any insights? Please post replies in the forum, not as comments on this news item. Thanks.
