    Riva TNT lockups in d3d

    Just bought a Diamond V550. Haven't run any benchmarks yet but the card rocks. It's a lot faster than the Voodoo Rush I had in both Open GL and D3D.
    However in some D3D games I am having some lockups now and then. The video locks and the sound keeps repeating (got an sb16).
    In NBA Live99 if I wait for a while it may unlock and keep on playing but in most others it doesn't and I have to reset the pc.
    Could it be the drivers ? I noticed that Diamond hasn't released any new drivers since October and I'm considering installing the reference drivers.

    I've had some problems with the AGP version of the V550 myself...

    I've found that to get better stability you need to:

    Set cache video bios = disabled
    video bios shadow = disabled
    init first video = correct for card type
    assign IRQ for video = enabled

    and if you have a motherboard with a MVP3 chipset you will need the latest miniport and AGP port drivers...

    Hope this is of some help
