    I read the web page about AGP4x + VIA Chipsets Fix for Win 9x and Win 2000, but what about Win XP? I have a Tyan S1854 Trinity 400 motherboard with a Apollo Pro 133A chipset (4x AGP, Slot 1/Slot 370) and have just installed an ATI Radeon 7500 graphics card. The operating system is so unstable that it crashes before starting up Windows (XP). Granted I didnít remove the old graphics card software, I have a feeling there is a lot more to it than that, especially after ready your web page. I can only access the computer from Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Networking (Safe Mode with VGA crashes). Have you any suggestions?

    I have had the same problem with an Asus mother board which had a kt400 chipset, the answer is ditch the board, mine was brand new and I put a brand new Radeon 9800 pro in and straight away lock ups and freeze ups! after some investigation I found out that Radeon are a bugger with some boards! I went out and got another Asus board (A7N8X) which has an Nforce2 chipset and that was that no more problems everything was sweet! An expensive exercise but after spending £350 on the Radeon card it was worth it! Good Luck:thumb:

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.
