ATI Radeon 9800PRO and "delayed write failed" errors...
    #2923473 - 07/24/04 01:41 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I installed a Radeon 9800 Pro video card yesterday, and after booting into WindowsXP was greeted with a host of "Delayed Write Failed" error messages and some very nice data corruption!

Well at first I thought my HDD might be failing...but it tests out fine so obviously it was the card I had just installed! I then decided that my poor little 300W power supply must just not be strong enough to handle this card. I swapped the card out for my old GeForce4 and decided to wait until I get a new power supply...

This morning I decided to try again. I unplugged all unnecessary devices and installed the 9800 again...SAME ERROR!

After looking around the web for a bit I found one site that mentioned trying to turn off the "LargeSystemCache" feature in the registry...so I did.

VOILA!! Card works fine, even with all my other devices plugged in and running!

So just a heads up to all of you, should anyone else encounter this issue! :cool:
