Hi guys!
I just got my eVGA Twin View MX yesterday and everytime i try to run 3DMark2000 or games, it locks up on me.I've tried 3 different drivers (4.12,6.18 & 6.22) but it's still the same.I'm pretty sure it's the video card because i had no such problems at all with the ATI card i replaced. By the way, i haven't tried to o/c it yet, so it's not because of o/cing. I wonder if anyone experience the same problem and i'd really appreciate your suggestions.

TIA.

You probably did this, but did you fully install the old ATI drivers? Had to ask.

Try using the leaked Detonator 3 6.26 drivers. I would recommend the 5.30 or 5.32s but they don't have Twin-View functionality (only TV-out).

You probably received an e-mail from (eVGA) regarding the screw-up on the RAM being 7ns and being clocked @ 143 instead of the originally-advertised 6ns and being clocked @ 166. That might lower your chances for a good oc.

I'll be returning my board back for one with 6ns SDRAM @ 166.

Hi Rankor,
Sorry for the slow reply. I did remove the old driver before installing the new one and at the moment, i'm using the new det 6.26 driver (not 6.22, my bad). I'll try the 5.32 like you suggest and see what happens.
About the card memory, yeah, i did get an e-mail from them about the screw up. I'm still trying to decide whether to send the card back or take the $20.00 that they offer. I did manage to run 3DMark2000 at stock speed and got 4088 3D Marks(1024*768,16 bit). Not sure if it's up to par or not.
Anyway, thanks for your help.

Update! i'm using the det 5.33 right now and everything seems to be stable so far. The only down side is that 3DMarks is about 400 points lower than 6.26 and it doesn't support Twin View. I dunno...maybe i'll send the card back for the 6ns one.
