VPU Crash with radeon 9550


Recommended Posts

i recently purchased kotor2 and when i try to play it i get a bout 5 minutes into the game when i get an error message saying my VPU crashed. i send the error report and then reboot. i downladed the latest drivers for my radeon 9550 and the latest patch for the game. im also running a P4 2GHz processor, 1024MB of DDR, and a radeon 9550 256mb agp card, if that helps any.

i made this thread over a week ago now and have yet to get any help. gotten plenty of people looking at it but no replies on the subject. so i can take this one of 2 ways.

 

1) no one here nows how to help me with this problem.

 

or

 

2) the person or persons that do know how to help me with this just dont care.

 

 

someone let me know if i can get any help on this or not so i can quit wasting my time coming to this forum several times a day in hopes of finding out how to fix this problem so i can play KOTOR2.

Been looking over someone with similiar problems and it reminded me about my own hardware related problems with an ATi Radeon 9600 EZ I had once. I can see there's a warning in your sysinfo on the status of the card. If you go to display properties -> advanced -> adapter (not device manager) is your card present or does it say VgaSave?

 

Back then I solved my problems by using Omega drivers, which seemed like the only alternative to flashing after the warranty expired.

Maybe it will, maybe it won't.

 

You can see for yourself how many replies you've got to this thread... I only replied, because it reminded me of a problem I once had, which turned out to be faulty hardware. Omega drivers helped me for awhile until even that wasn't enough. I use that ATi card in a secondary system of mine that runs Win98 without any problems. For some odd reason that card wasn't really compatible with Win XP, apparently.

 

The closest thing I've found is here at Connect3D,. which suggests reflashing the card to 9550 or return it to the vendor for a replacement.

 

I guess it boils down to:

  1. Try Omega drivers
  2. Reflash 9550
  3. Replace it

i went and tried to ply KOTOR1 last night just to see if it was just a problem with KOTOR2 and my radeon not liking each other or something else. i got it istalled, patched, and game stated. and just as i thought, i got 5 minutes in to the game and it crashed the vpu.

 

im DLing the omega drives at the time of this post and gonna give them a try. i would try that second option if i had a little more experience doing such things like that.

 

this just bothers me to no end cos i was able to play KOTOR1 on an old 64mb geforce4 4200 at lowest game settings. only reason i got the radeon was cos it was about 50 dollars cheaper than the fx5500oc that was availabe at the store i got my radeon at.

 

anyways, my download just finished, ill post again if this fixes my problem.
