I hope someone out there can help me. Just upgraded system to Athlon 2.2G,
ECS
K7S6A motherboard, old nvidia gforcemx2 graphics - windows me
reinstalled(about 7 times now to try and solve prob). Windows loads fine but
whenever playiong games keeps chucking me back to windows screen . checking
around found a hardware conflict on the input/output range between 290 and
297 . Would remove the offending bit but its between the PCI bus and the
Motherboard Resources. Have removed and reinstalled drivers and reserved
this block but no change (When reserved would not recognise any pheriphs).
Anyone have a clue how to help post message or email me at
(e-mail address removed) - ecs newsgroups dont cover this topic, will cc
this post there

That's an old card, which may be struggling a bit in your system, and
could possibly overheating. Have you tried keeping the case open to see
if more cooling gives any kind of improvement?

sorted - fed up of having to open case

Should be in the BIOS under PCI/Plug and Play section. Change Plug and
Play Aware OS to NO.

Well having followed everyones advice so far with no results i have spoken
to
the shop, bloke said there was a 50/50 chance windowsxp will solve it . Have
borrowed my brothers copy to try to see if it does, if this fixes will
update you lot and have to go and buy a copy windowsxp (£85 quid extra :-< )

oh man your kidding right? Xp will not SOLVE anything cept give MS and
your ' bloke' some money in the bank. if thats the case then just
reinstall your current OS over itself (with no loss of data).
