Heres the darn system in question-

AthlonXP 2600+
MSI KT400 Moatherboard (KT4VL off the top of my head)
Nvida FX5200

Heres the problem-

I have a DV500, and when I first got the system above I installed the DV500 under Windows XP. Everything seemd fine, I could capture ok and import to premiere ok (premiere6), but after only a minute or 2 editing in Premiere my computer locked up !!. So I went and downloaded all the latest drivers (premiere 6.01 and 6.02, DV500 v4 and v4.5), still the system locked up !!!. Not a big fan of windows XP I decided to install Windows98. Now the DV500 works ok but I'm having problems with my graphics card (NvidaFX). I've tried everything I can think of, new IRQ's new PCI slots, different drivers etc etc. Might there be a compatiblity issue with my 8*AGP Motherboard - My 8*AGP Graphics card - and Windows 98 !??

Has anyone any ideas what could be wrong, idealy I would've liked to run windowsXP as all my drivers are installed to that disk.

P.S I was warned. but I didnt listen. DONT BUY FROM TIME COMPUTERS !!! COWBOYS !!!

these chipset motherboards are reported on pinnacles webboard as being problematic.

they suggest you download ppe (pci performance enhancer) and see if it can help.

also download latest motherboard drivers.
