Im running 2 compuers on my system. First on is: XP 2000+ Soyo dragon Plus Onboard 5.1 is suround running 512 333 ddr Ram 30 gig 7200 hard disk ATI 9000 pro video 128 ddr on it Windows XP Pro

Next CPU

XP 1800+ K7S5A Board 512 PC133 Ram 40gig 5500 hard disk Gforce 2 32 meg video Window XP pro Sound blaster Live

Both running hard line out of a linksys router from a cable modem

I have read that it might be over heating but not sure there. Any ideas would help. I have reloaded my OS and have new sound drivers and video drivers installed to both. I cna be playin for an hour just fine then ever say 10 min or so it just frezes solid and I need to hit reset on both, Any Ideas would help for I love the game but is just a big fight to keep it running. :confused:

I am getting the 128mb model. I paid $105.00 on Ebay. (New, in sealed retail box) I know..Ebay can be risky, but the seller has GREAT feedback and sent it with the tracking number the next morning. I think I'll like it just fine. Later insp-clouseau

Hi insp-clouseau and LedZep,

Maybe you should move this discussion to a private message, this poor bloke needs help and all he sees is your vid card conundrum, he'll think we are just so rude.

Hi Mountainripper,

I haven't yet come across any problems that will lock up two PC's running the game over a lan. Are you are running one as a LAN server when they are locking up? Or do you mean that both are playing on a internet server and they both lock up. If it is overheating why would it affect both PC's at the same time. Seems to me that you need to investigate a third party that may be causing the problem - and that is the linksys router. Can you run a few tests? The tests depend on how you are playing the game. If you can supply me with the answer to the above question we should be able to figure something out.

Good luck

:cya: :cya: :cya:

Hi and THANK you for your help:)

MAn this thing is kickin me. I am locking up on both coputers but at different times. The bigger of the 2 locks more, I went out last night and flashed my BIOS on the soyo dragon Plus and formated. Now all I have on the 2000+ is XP Pro and the game. I cant even play it now it doesnt lock up but it reboots my system. I uninstalled the game and tryed reinstalling and half way through the install it rebooted my system. Man o Man ehh? Like I say I REALLY Like the game. I have 2 retail copys of the game so they arnt copys. Could it be the SOYO Dragon plus? I have a friend that runs one with the game and a XP1800 Plus with no prob. Thanks again for Any help:):rock:
