    Given that you are using "hacked" drivers to enable Phys-X with AMD products, and that configuration is not truly supported by either side, you must get rid of either the AMD card, or the nVidia card, before proper troubleshooting can begin.

    what about your gaming resolution? is that bigger or smaller than your desktop resolution? have you ever logged of after that and re login, does it return to normal condition?

    I definitely agree Ive been thinking all along that it mayb my physx hack. I hate it when I get those desktop freeze up. Well at the end if it comes down to it I'll just might get rid of the physx for now until I can surely resolve the issue. It's would be great if they can just create a physx card to run on eiher nvidia or amd.

    Yeah, ever since phys-X was released I hopped on the tech, but after nV bought Ageia, and then nerfed teh actual ageia cards with the driver, I've very purposefully been ignoring Phys-X.


    Pull the driver, try just the 5970...but make sure that you also re-install the 5970 driver before testing.

    Then, I'd test the nV card on it's own as well.

    If both owrk fine on thier own, you know where the culprit is.

    Resolution? Is the same I have a HP 1920x1200. In the game it remains the same. When I run 3dmark it would work. But when I get to crash n burn physx it does not load but the computer still remains functional. Any clue to what that might be?

    Thanks for making the leap from a reader to a poster. Please use more specific thread titles in the future. It's more courteous and makes threads more searchable. I've changed it to something I think fits, but let me know if you would like it changed to something else.

    Thanks!
