I have an ECS P4M900T-M mobo with a Core 2 Duo 6400 in it, running XP Pro. Everything works fine until I install a graphics card. Tried an nVidia based card first and now an ATI based card (X1050), and both cause the computer to freeze at some random, inconvenient moment.
I have disabled the on-board graphics. (I think, at least it no longer shows up in the device manager.) I went into my BIOS and selected PCI Express 16 for my primary graphics, but didn't see much to else adjust. I don't know what else to do. Are there settings for me to adjust to rescue this situation, or with my cheap mobo am I stuck with the lousy graphics from the on-board video?
Thanks for your time.
Edit: I have updated everything that I know of, from the ATI driver to Direct X.
Edit: also, it's not an overheating situation. Left it on overnight, no problem. In the morning, after a few minutes of normal use, crashed while using Firefox.
