whenever im playing newer 3d games my system locks up.
the three main games it happens in are quake3, baldur's gate 2 and the radeon arc demo.
im almost positive its my sound card causing it because all the radeon demos with no sound work fine and quake3 will run if i dont have my sound card installed (i havent tried baldurs gate2 w/ 3d and no sound yet though). for some reason half-life runs fine though.
i have all the latest drivers for my hardware, directx8 and windowsme. ive tried direct x 6, 7, 7.1 and 8 as well as windows 98, windows 98se and windows me. i've also tried putting a diamond mx300 sound card in and it still screw up, i've tried different pci slots and the sound card is not sharing an irq with anything.
does anyone have any idea how to fix this problem?
