    stability issues w/ prophet2 mx and via chipset?

    Hi,

    I just picked up the new card and when I get it to run I am very happy. I just haven't been able to get it stable. Currently I am using the via 4in1 4.20 and the factory drivers 5.32 for the card. I'm looking for the exact order to install (i.e. irq routing, agp, ect.). Should I reboot after each time. Thanks in advance.

    Ports

    ps. this thing actually doubled scores over my old tnt card.

    Update the BIOS M/B manufacturer web site
    Update 4in1 to 4.24 www.viatech.com

    I have a TNT too i'm looking forward to buy a GF MX also. All I can tell you is that my TNT was much less stable on VIA 133a than BX.
    HP7100 is crap!!! But I don't wanna give it up. I finally junked it and bought a YAMAHA 8424scsi. What a relief!

    I have a GF2 MX and an EPoX 7KXA motherboard and it works really well. When I installed everything I followed this configuration guide from the AMDZone. I think the procedure described is applicable to any VIA-based motherboard. I would recommend getting the latest 4in1 drivers and BIOS before doing this.
