    hi i just put together a new system and i'm having a bit of a problem. for what ever reason whenever i load the drivers for my vid card either softmod or original the drivers constantly crash. but it onlyt happens on resolotions past 800x600. now i can rule out the os or software 'cause i ve reinstalled the system 3 times with 2 diff os and it's the same thing.

    here are the spec's
    2 x opteron 246
    1gb ram reg ecc
    msi k8t master2 far7 (with latest bios)
    powercolor radeon 9550 256mb
    2 x 80 gb seagate sata (raid 0)
    600w eps power supply
    os so far tried xp64 and win2k

    any ideas ?

    p.s oh yeah when i set the resolution to 1024x768 windows starts to boot fine but then as it gets to the desktop the monitors goes to sleep for a couple of secs then come back and everything is slow as if the vid drivers weren't loaded anything above that resolution doesn't work
