AMD ? Nvidia ? Linksys ? Where is the problem....Help

AMD ? Nvidia ? Linksys ? Where is the problem....Help

I just built a pc with an AMD 1.2ghz on a Spacewalker/Shuttle AK12 MB and 512 RAM, 52X Sony CD-ROM, Linksys Ethernet Card, Nvidia 64MEG DDR GeForce2 MX400, Maxtor 40 Gig Drive.  I had it hooked up to a Linksys KVM 2 Port switch and for some reason any time I had both computers on, it made this one I just built reboot.  I checked the Temp on the MB and on the video card and everything was ok.  I eventually pulled it off the KVM switch and and ran everything direct and it has not reboot since.  However now I am running into a problem where it just freezes up and I have to reboot it manually.  There is no specific thing I am doing when it locks up so I have not been able to narrow it down.  I sometimes get the BSD with error code 06 and Microsoft doesn't really have a good answer for me.  I also sometimes get a VXD error on the BSD as well.  Has anyone ever had a similar problem running AMD or the Geforce2 mx400 ?  This is my first time for AMD and Nvida as I have been a Pentium and 3dfx user.

BSDs are almost invariably caused by hardware drivers - make sure you've got the latest ones for all devices for whichever O/S you are running - Windows 2000?

Can your switch be set to run in half-duplex mode? Check the NICs in both PCs are set to half-duplex too, and see if this helps.

Absolutely no problems with Nvidia and Athlon. no common problems, this is a very common hardware config so you would know about it if there was.
G/force MX400 64mb is an sdram GPU not DDR!! you would have to go to a GTS or above for DDR.              Martin

There's supposed to be a problem between Athlon and AGP, on AMDs website (http://www.amd.com) there is a patch you can download (that for some reason is located under the K6-2 section). This apparently only applies to Win2K, as the patch can only be run on that OS. Don't know if this has anything to do with your problem, but I think it's worth a try :)

Hope it helps

I'm running Win2k on an Athlon 1Ghz with an nVidia AGP2/4x on an Asus board (nrly same as you) - Everything works wonderfully, This looks like a driver issue, maybe a driver corruption. Have you tried starting in Safe Mode? or perhaps a repair installation...

Good Luck...
