I checked that site canurunit.com and it told me that the 210 would be an okay card to run STO that's why I bought it. Any advice?
if you have an on board chip for graphics you may want to disable it from bios or uninstall the graphics drivers so it's using the default microsoft drivers then try installing your 210 with the drivers that come with the cd
it just sounds like a conflict which is causing the comp to lock up.
edit also it depends on which slot of the mother board you install your card sometimes that causes trouble to i "think" video card mainly for the bottom or is it sound card first?
someone else may wanna pipe up about that i'm not sure.
