Re: My ECS motherboard hates ATi gpus?!

candle_86 wrote on 2020-07-06, 16:39: Turn off agp features, sideband addressing and fast writes. I bet ECS has them on by default. I believe I looked for at least fast writes and there was no option to enable/disable in the BIOS. I know for a fact that I have fastwrites enabled on my ASRock board. …

Re: My ECS motherboard hates ATi gpus?!

To avoid losing sight of other possible explanations, can you list exactly which cards you tried and how well or badly they worked? One thing that comes to mind is power requirements of the different cards. Are you able to test voltages with a multimeter? I'm especially curious if your 5V supply is …

My ECS motherboard hates ATi gpus?!

Yes the silly title is true! As I sit here writing this at 1am I'm at a complete loss. My ECS P4M800PRO-M2 REFUSES to do any hardware acceleration with ATi cards X1X and under. Somehow the 2600XT and HD3850 I tested work but anything under that I will get constant BSOD (no errors either. A literal …

Re: Trying to cool the RIALTO bridge chip...

Just wanted to give an update. My new AGP system is built in my Antec 300 case with a 120mm sidepanel fan and it is MUCH better now in terms of thermals. The 3850 is now able to actually occasionally idle without running its fan. Under load it still gets hot but not as hot as it was before. I guess …

Re: Trying to cool the RIALTO bridge chip...

Thanks for the input, all. :) I will see what happens when I get my newer ECS motherboard and set it all up in the Antec 300 case. I plan on using the side panel fan draw cool air into the case and it should hit both the top and bottom of the GPU. It's simple : The pad around bridge (the pink stuff …

Trying to cool the RIALTO bridge chip...

Hey all! It's been nearly a year since I last posted here. I have owned several HD3850 AGPs, the cheapest one (10$!!!) died after about a week of use. The other two that I have acquired recently still work. One thing I have been trying to look into is keeping the RIALTO bridge chip cool. When you do …

Re: HELP! - GeForce FX5600 in win98se

Don't hold me to it, but I am almost positive it is 9.0b? I remember having this issue with 9.0c games. Need for speed underground 2 and UT2004 would puke graphics all over the screen with the FX5600 under Windows 98se. Once again, worked fine in Windows xp. The plus 98 screen savers with white …

Re: HELP! - GeForce FX5600 in win98se

Thanks for the reply! I haven't changed the driver yet. I tested a GeForce FX5500 today and same problem. However I also got a geforce 6600 today, same driver, no white textures! But now the plus 98 screen savers don't even start - they immediately crash. I may just use this 6600 but I need to clean …

HELP! - GeForce FX5600 in win98se

Hi all, long time lurker here. For years I have been trying on and off to get my father's old GeForce FX5600 256 working in my very first computer running windows 98se. The drivers install and work, but plus 98 screen savers have white textures, and half life has the same white textures issue. I …
