Ok, I just got a Radeon 9700 pro and installed it. I used to have a geforce4 mx 440. When I had the geforce the game would crash but i fixed it by changing the refresh rate to 1, and putting the pagefile to 0 then defragging my harddrive then putting the pagefile to 600 min and 600 max. This fixed my crashing problem. But now w/ my 9700 pro, I changed the refresh rate to 1 and changed the pagefile to 600 min and max, and it still crashes. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening? please help

My specs are: AMD XP 2100 at 1.73 512 DDR RAM Radeon 9700 pro

Try installing DirectX 9.0A, the 9700 was designed especially for DX9.

Hi Assaulta,

Change your page file setting from 600 min - 600 max to 600 min - no max, that should help with your problem I hope. also, you didn't mention your OS (ppl should, it is very important info), but if you're running XP set the pagefile to be managed by windows.

Good luck

:cya: :cya: :cya:

If you are running Intel Application Accelerator on Windows XP, there is a specific way to adjust the Page File settings.

Uninstall Intel App Accelerator. Set Page File to NONE. Reboot. Set Page File to desired settings. Reboot. Install Intel App Accelerator.

This was posted on the Intel site for version 2.3 (fairly new). I don't know why the ATA would be effected with Page File, but Intel knows their business, and doing it wrong did effect my Video.... badly..... put me on "16 colors" till I did it right. Anyway.... it's worth a look.

How does the 9700 Pro work on other Games? Curious as my Son wants to buy one.

Hi, I got AMD Athlon XP 2000+, Soundblaster Audigy OEM, Window XP, GA-7VAXP (motherboard gigabyte), Ati Radeon 9700 non-pro OEM (Sapphire) ''275mhz core//275mhz memory agp8x'', 768 ddr 333mhz ram running at 266 cause of my athlon xp FSB. So the problem is that i get awesome graphic but my FPS is so crappy.Like i get at maximum graphic in the games on 1280x960x32, Anti-Aliasing 2x, Anisotropic Filtering 16x, ''the rest of the other driver option to max but Vsync of cause it lock my fps to a shitty level cause of my refresh rate of my gay screen. I get in Battlefield 1942, with lot of people and in action scene i mean not in a nowhere place with nothing going on, my fps is about 35 or less, this is very ugly and slow.Even in UT2003 the benchmark are: 1280x960 Flyby 72.10 Botmatch 47.80

1024x768 Flyby 102.73 Botmatch 52.90

640x800 Flyby 143.85 Botmatch 52.85

And everything in my computer is up-to-date and also in 3dmark 2001 SE, I used to get 11 500 but now i get 8700! and other people with same same stuff as me get 13 500 about. Also sometimes my games freeze after a while of playing, i dunno why, i tryed agp aperture to 256 mb and seem to crash a lot less than in 128 but im not sure if its my pagefile that i set to 1.5x my ram, so 768 x 1.5 = 1152min and max 1152 like it is recommanded on Window XP Tweak guide of www.tweaktown.com also dunno if its too hot for my computer but my CPU Temp is ever 56-57 and System Temp 49-50 degree C. CPU Fan about 5273. and my computer is a lot noisy, i know amd does lot more sound than intel computers... well If u can help me i ll be so much happy and also tell me if the problem is that my fps is slow and bs cause my radeon 9700 is not pro and OEM ''sapphire, powered by ati''.... and i forgot to tell that in 3dmark 2001 se, when i do compare 3d card with same system, mine was at 11 500 score, 13% lower than other 9500/9700 serries and now at 8700 it is under radeon 8500 :(
