    Aero Glass Crash with Perf Rating 4.0 in RC1

    Hi,

    I am currently running Vista RC1, however, whenever I try to turn on Aero
    Glass with Transparency and Desktop Composition, I get a total unrecoverable
    system freeze.

    Perforamance Analysis says my system rating is 4.0, with 5.9 for Aero, so I
    don't understand why this always occurs.

    I have updated to the nVIDIA Vista drivers, however the problem still
    persists with either Microsoft or nVIDIA drivers installed.

    My GPU is an nVIDIA 256MB 6800GT AGP
    My CPU is an AMD Athlon 64 3200+
    I have 1 GB RAM.

    I tried to use Beta 2 and encountered the same problem and thought that this
    would be rectified in RC1.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks, Ben

    Are running the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of Vista? Did you try
    turning on Aero with just the default MS video drivers installed?

    I am currently running 32Bit... I tried with the default MS drivers first and
    was encountering the issue, so I decided to try the nVIDIA Vista drivers to
    see if that would rectify the issue.

    When Transparency and Composition is off, all seems stable.

    I am running x86 beta2 with nVidia drivers and have no problems with Aero.
    Did you do a clean install or upgrade from another system.

    Is this a new computer or new video card? Did you remember to plug in the
    secondary power cable to the video card (if it has one)? Have you played
    any 3d intensive games with it under XP?

    Re: Aero Glass Crash with Perf Rating 4.0 in RC1

    I have sort of the same problem, I have a ASUS P4S800d-E Deluxe MB with a
    GeoForce 6200 128AGP video card, the
    system locks up when running RC1 default agp system drivers whenever Aero is
    selected. The thing is, Media Center
    and Media Player both work with the default drivers but not Aero, when I
    load the SIS agp drivers that came with my
    MB I get green screens with both Media Center and Media Player but the
    system is solid with Aero. So my situation
    is I can have Aero or Media Center/Player but not both. This was the same
    with Beta 2, Pre-RC1 I could never get
    stable.

    Just to add I am talking about the system agp drivers not the video card
    drivers (it never made a difference between Nvida or MS drivers).

    I am using the same hardware configuration I had with XP, which ran fine. The
    power adaptor is plugged into the video card. All 3D Gaming worked fine under
    XP. It seems to occur when Aero goes to display a dialog box or open a window
    using the 3D composition (when the windows "flip" open) on the desktop.
    Currently the nVIDIA drivers won't let me decrease hardware acceleration to
    test different settings.
