I am having similar problems with my AMD 1Gb system. It have a Gigabyte
GA-7ZXR board and a ATI All-in-Wonder Pro graphics card. I don't get trouble
with the monitor powering down, but I had frequent problems with the system
freezing up and having to be re-booted. Also the DVD drive would not work on
DVDs, only CDs. If you put a DVD in it would start the player prog and then
I discovered that if I turned the graphics card performance right down to the
minimum (that is with no acceleration), the freeze-ups stopped, although
screen up-dates were much slower. So obviously it is some sort of conflict
involving the graphics card.
However even when graphics acceleration is turned down, the DVD drive will
still not play DVDs. The player starts, but then says it can't play as system
performance is too low or there is not a proper card installed. This message
still comes as you turn up the performance step by step, until it reaches
full, when the freezing starts again! Anyone any ideas on how to cure this?
I have looked at System Manager and no conflicts are shown, but the ATI card
seems to be sharing IRQ 11 with the internal modem.
