driver problem

by lila1160 / July 31, 2005 5:08 PM PDT

I have a Ausus A7NX8-E deluxe motherboard with an ATI All-In-Wonder 9000 display adapter & a Sony DVD-RW DRU 530A & Liteon CD player. I had the computer built for me with a 200G Sata hard drive. I also have 3 EIDE 80 G drives I use for storage. Only one of my storage drives is FAT system; the rest are the other which I cannot think of the name right at the moment but you probably know. I have a brand new Canon Mixma MP750. My computer will suddenly just shut down & restart after I have been on awhile. Microsoft tells me I have a problem with a device driver that probably needs updating. I've went to the ATI website & got totally confused; couldn't even find the software for my All-In-Wonder 9000. I forgot to say that I have 512 memory card which I had read that it was really all that you need so I haven't bought anymore. How in the world can I find out what driver is causing my problem?
I think the computer is a 2700 & it's an AMD. Any suggestions would should be appreciated.

A Suggestion

I run AMD XP 3000 with Asus A78nx de luxe and Ati Radeon 9700 pro.With 512Mb Ram my system timed out running intervideo WinDVD, adding ram cured it. Ati is tricky but the new Catalyst divers are more stable.

Paul, I go to their site & cannot find anything on the All-In-Wonder 9000 Pro; used to be their. I have looked & looked for my original installation disk but can't find it. How can I find out what version I am using & update?

Does it matter what type of Ram you put in. I seem to have read that you should use the same type. I had it written down once & now forgot what it was; all I remember is the number 400 on it.

I suspect heat.

You didn't list the power supply size or whether you ran it with the cover off. Both issues are not uncommon since novice machine builders will always think a 350 Watt power supply will be enough. Cooling issues are not uncommon but drive the owners mad since they only show up under load and not during most diagnostics a shop will run.

Something I wanted to say Bob & forgot. My maiden name was Profitt but my grandfather spelled it the way you do. Did your family generate from KY or TN we might be related way back.

The case cover.

It's a test to see if heat is the issue. You remove the case cover to see it heat is building up. Another novice issue is they think more fans would mean that's not it. PLEASE remove the case cover.

There are relatives in TX, Weatherford and such. Grandma was a Benham.

Bob, I didn't think it is a heat problem so I updated the All-In-Wonder 9000 Pro. One reason is that I can just turn my computer on play a game 5 minutes & there I am computer shuts down & restarts itself. Now I am ready to try your suggestion & will let you know what happens. When I had my old Gateway & I had 3 hard drives in it. I could always figure out how to fix it but I guess I am in over my head with this new pc. I'm trying to figure out what drivers do I have that needs updating? I've always been able to fix most things if I just have directions to follow but finding what's wrong is my problem!

With all that hardware in the case, heat is definitely an issue. You may have already dealt with the issue, but you didn't note that.
So, first be sure you have enough cooling. All those drives will require multiple fans, properly placed in the case.

Paul, I went to the site & it has only one download for ALL-In-Wonder for XP. The Catalyst Version 5.7 which I have version 4.8. I cannot which I have been searching everywhere find my original disk. My computer is only a little over a year old & always kept everything in a box together. I have taken it in for repairs & take the box in also so I don't know where it disappeared to. You have to uninstall before you can put in version 5.7 so I'm scared it will mess things up & then I will be in BIG trouble. I have been to the site before & they had upgrades for the 9000 pro but I can't find it now.

I went to the site & downloaded the Catalyst version 5.7 but it still crashed while I was playing a game. Also, I do have the the multimedia center which I lost when I uninstalled the old version. That's where you can connect your tv or vcr to the computer so I never used it anyway but am going to download it just in case I need it later or it keeps giving me trouble. I did get an error while installing saying Severe,Zero Display Service Error & I had to click ok. Everything so far looks fine even my new Samsung 19" digital monitor.
