Default AGP & RC1

I recently did a clean install of RC1, & was having problems with my vid
card. My comp would flicker, & I'd get an error message along the lines "R300
stopped responding, but has recovered"....or it would freeze entirely.

I've sinced forced the AGP in the BIOS to run at 4x, instead of 8x, and it
has run perfectly stable through the weekend.

Am I missing something in the settings to be able to run at 8x?

- Radeon X700 AGP8X on a Soyo Dragon 2 KT880 motherboard.

Thanks!
Michael

Did you also check to see if there was a recent BIOS update for your MOBO?

I dont know exactly what is the source of this problem but I think
drivers or some application.

It happened a few times (never reboot though) with i installed nvidia
vista beta drivers and only when maximizing a picture clicking from
the slideshow gadget... but after a few days this is not happening
anymore.

Vist is quite unreliable in behaviour so far (RC1) and I REALLY HOPE
that the RTM wont be like this... It reminds me too much of win98.
