Problem With Rainbow 6 Rogue Spear

Postby Rpbertxyz on Sun Nov 09, 2003 11:14 am

My grandson is having problems running Raiinbow Six Rogue Spear. The problem is when running the game it will do a restart randomly.Have done the patch 2.05. Have all the latest drivers. Tried running in compatibilty mode for 98 and Win 2000. The game ran fine when the operating system was Windows 98.

MB= Asus a7m266
Processor AMD XP 1700
Ram= 2X256 Crucial DDR 2100
VC= ATI 9000 Pro 64MB
PS= 400Watts
Temp= never over 50C

I've run out of ideas.
Thank You Bob H.

You might want to try slowing down your memory timings in the bios and even slow down the chip a step or two if you know your PS and other components are up to par. I had a Asus A7V133 that would not run reliable after adding a ti 4200 video card, BSOD all the time, overheat etc.
I finally set the chip to run like 132 MHZ or slower and it was way more stable after that. Some of the older Asus boards had crappy power regulaters and had laeky cap problems. I finally replaced it with a MSI with everything else exactly the same except new 333 memory for the new board and its like a rock now, almost never BSOD or freezes even in the hottest days after running for a week.
Try slowing it down and see if it helps. You might also want to see if any of the caps are bulged or have white gunk coming from underneath them as that's a sign of the cap problem and your sytstem sounds like a older board to me.
