    fic503+ and viper 770 ultra

    i just installed a viper770u on a fic503+w/ amdk62350(latest bios & drivers installed)
    my problem is the system locks up when i run memory intensive progs(ienetscape,motoracer2 ..etc)
    the screen freezes and i lose the kybrd and sometimes the mouse controls.
    i have used both tnt drivers (nvidia&diamond)
    and viper is set on 2x agp.
    Is the via chipset incompatible or is the viper over heating?

    Do you have the latest 4-1 drivers from VIA installed. The BIOS has little effect but the AGP miniport drivers do. They are on version 4.16 last I heard. Also there are some BIOS settings that might need to be changed (disable pallet snoop is one I think).

    Make sure Windows haas no conflicts with the device in start/control panel/system/device manager/display addaptors.
