My PC is A7V266 w/1GHz Athlon. BIOS is 1002B. The problem probably isn't\nwith the MB, but you guys probably know the answer - so I'm asking my\nquestion here. My graphics card is ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 9600 Pro. The\nATI multimedia programs like File Player, TV watcher etc., often freeze\nduring startup. Sometimes they get up and running but they freeze or crash\neasily. I noticed there is a serious memory leak indicated by the MS\nWindows System Monitor program. The leak starts when I start recording TV,\nVCR or other source. Stopping recording does not recover any of the leaked\nmemory - rebooting is necessary. It leaks about 300 MB of my free memory in\nless than 10 minutes. Of course, a crash eventually happens when memory is\ndown to nothing. The memory is 256MB of PC2100 and 256MB of PC2700. I\nremoved the PC2700 but got the same result with only the single SDRAM. I\nhave the latest VIA AGP driver installed. I have been tinkering with this\nproblem for about 18 months and have tried many things. Maybe I need to\ntinker with memory settings in BIOS. I don't know. It could be a thousand\ndifferent things. I suspect the memory leak is probably caused by the same\nthing causing instability and freezing.\n\nAnother wierd symptom: sometimes there are rather long delays after I click\nsomething before the requested action starts happening. An example: I\nclick to make a DVD movie (in my PC) get displayed on my television set.\nNothing happens. Then after about 2 minutes the movie starts showing on the\ntelevision. That was probably due to memory being very low - but I wasn't\nmonitoring memory at that point so I don't know.\n\nYour suggestions will be appreciated.\n\nTIA. Bill S.
