    I there,

    I've been a long term Nvidia card user and never had any problems.. It came
    time once again to upgrade my card and looking at the market place the
    radeon 9600Pro seemed to be the best card for me at the price! Its installed
    and i'm quite happy with the performance but have a few minor problems that
    I would like solved.. hopefully these are common problems you guys know how
    to solve!

    1) The biggest problem.. sometimes the card seems to just turn off! Like its
    going into standby.. the monitor powers down but I have to reset the
    computer to get it working again.. this results is losing everything i'm
    doing on the computer at the time.. does it every few days or so.. one time
    while watching a film.. another while in a game and another just using word!
    Anyone got any ideas?

    2) I have a Hauppauge WinTV card.. it works ok full screen but if I try to
    watch in a window it cuts some of the picture off (mostly the bottom). Also
    the image comes through 'wavey' sometimes and have to restart the computer
    to fix it.

    3)I've heard great stories of how well this card can overlcock.. but if i
    set the core at anything more than 430MHz the VPU thing crashes and the card
    restarts back at 400MHz.

    I did a complete reinstall with the new card and all latest drivers for
    everyhting (cat 3.8) but didn't make any difference.

    Thanks!!
    Simon

    try the 3.7 drivers.
    for the hauppauge make sure that you have your primary (
    srtart-programs-hauppauge-primary) set to allow overlay or allow vmr. either
    works for me.
