Someone either send a priest to exorcise the demons from my machine or im gonna smash it with a hammer and go get a P4. Every AMD machine ive had has been a nightmare and every intel machine ive had has run flawlessly.
this is the latest on my machine....every time i think everything is running perfectly it kicks me in the nuts, runs over my dog, and calls me a f*cker
during an install yesterday of 3dmark2k1 the system decided to F*ck itself and destroy the registry so I got to start from scratch today.
when windows finally got loaded, i loaded in this order, 4 in 1 drivers, amd miniport, directx8 and nvidia 21.83 drivers.
now i have games crashing on install, programs crashing on install
errors while surfing the web referring to NVD.dll errors (something with the video card I assume) I cant even get my nhl2002 game to run, and it ran perfectly on my old p3. I also get random windows protection faults where it kicks me to a black screen and I have to hard reset just to get the damn thing to work. NAV2001 also always gives me crap about low memory which i know is horseshit cause I have a gig worth.
hell my system even seems to defrag slower and this board has ata100! and my old board only had ata33
I hate to say it to all of you AMD fans out there, but right now I clearly would rather have a P4. Unless anyone has some advice that can remedy this •••••••• that is happening.

(all about to get backed over on my way to the store to buy my P4)
