    Just installed my new Geforce FX 5900 SE card on my Soyo KT-600 MoBo. Win XP
    Pro, SP1 and all updates, latest drivers for EVERYTHING (Via, Nvidia, etc),
    400W PS.

    Everything works until I try a 3D game (like Serious Sam). Then I lock up
    hard.

    Processor
    Model : AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2800
    L2 On-board Cache : 512kB ECC Synchronous Write-Back (16-way, 64 byte line
    size)

    Mainboard
    Bus(es) : ISA AGP PCI IMB USB FireWire/1394 i2c/SMBus
    MP Support : 1 CPU(s)
    MP APIC : Yes
    System BIOS : Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG
    System : VIA Technologies, Inc. KT600-8237
    Mainboard : soyocomputer KT600-8237
    Total Memory : 1023MB DDR-SDRAM (2x512MB DDR sticks)

    Chipset 1
    Model : VIA Technologies Inc VT8377 Apollo KT400/A/600 CPU to PCI Bridge
    Front Side Bus Speed : 2x 133MHz (266MHz data rate)
    Total Memory : 1024MB DDR-SDRAM
    Memory Bus Speed : 2x 133MHz (266MHz data rate)

    Video System
    Monitor/Panel : SONY CPD-G400/G400J
    Adapter : NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900

    My front Side Bus is 333 Mhz.


    I have a Phoenix-Award Bios. I set it to Optomized Defaults. Under "Advanced
    Chipset Features", I went to "AGP + P2P Bridge Control":
    AGP Performance = Fast
    AGP Aprture Size = 64MB (tried all of them from 32M to 1G)
    AGP Mode = 8X
    AGP Driving Control = Auto
    AGP Fast Writes = Disabled (also tried Enabled)
    AGP Master 1 WS Write = Enabled (also tried disabled)
    AGP Master 1 WS Write = Enabled (also tried disabled)
    AGP 3.0 Calibration Cycle = Enabled

    I've tried several different BIOS congigs, but it's still the same thing.
    Has anyone else gotten a Soyo KT-600 and 5900 to work?

    Some new video cards DEMAND that the newest version of DirectX is
    installed BEFORE you install the drivers for the card. Read the docs.
