    I've upgraded my non-htpc computer to WinXP, and it's been running very well - no crashes even though it's been left on continuously for a few days with lots of downloading and dvd/mpg movie playing and running different programs.

    I decided to download the SG Radeon XP drivers (R6xp) so that I could access the extra settings and stuff for playing back DVDs etc.

    Installed the drivers fine, but found that although the settings showed that the refresh was 85hz at 1024 x 768, it was actualy only about 60. Changing the refresh saw the screen collapse/recover as normal, but no internal switching for the refresh could be heard (this worked fine with the standard XP drivers).

    I tried changing screen resolutions as well, and even restarting after changing the refresh, but it wouldn't have it.

    I rolled back the driver to the original XP driver, and the refresh is functioning again - seems like a driver issue, not hardware.

    Anyone else using the 64meg SG Radeon VE and XP with no problems?

    TIA

    Gary.
