    Ok here's the article that I linked in the news from VIA Arena written by John Gatt that offers an explaination and some tips into the NV Loop/BSOD error that happens with that version of drivers with some setups. :smokin:

    23.11's here and so far longest uptime between DELIBERATE reboots was 5 days...

    no instability issues, unless i push the card just a LITTLE too far

    It's a very strange issue this as with 3 identicial hardware setups 2 won't have any probs yet the remaining one will just be dogged by it. :?:

    Have you overclocked your video card lately?

    WindowsXP automatically reboots when it encounters fatal problem.

    I'm using 23.11 w/out any problem on WindowsXP Pro.

    Well, there is not a complete solution to this problem. Some people (see the via arena XP forum) have suggested that it may be an issue with the power feed of the AGP slot and have suggested that the voltage should be raised a bit and the AGP drive value should be increased, however this hasn't worked in all situations. In a friend's PC, I solved the problm by dropping AGP support to 2x from 4x, however I will play with the AGP drive values a bit as soon as I have the time for it.

    Be careful meddling with the AGP driving values, if you get it wrong the machine may refuse to boot :eek:

    That's right (been there-done that).

    Pull out the battery....power on
    power off (remove power cord)
    remove agp card
    power on (not sure if this step is necessary)
    power off (remove power cord)
    insert card and battery
    power on

    system boots, CMOS to default values.

    The AGP card removal is a must. It appears that the CMOS reset isn't sufficient on its own.
