x64 MAME Cabinet - 32 bit test complete

11/24/2010

32bit on a 64bit blog...what's this all about then?

Well, I've been having a few technical issues with my setup, namely getting Windows XP x64 up on my Wells Garner 19K7602 (K7000) @ 15khz display using soft15khz.

The problem was that intermittently I would get a desktop, or a blank screen. So I've rolled back to 32bit as we know this configuration works.

However, after a good few hours troubleshooting on Windows XP 32bit, I was experiencing exactly the same issues.

My ATI Radeon HD 4350 card has 3 outputs

1 x Standard 15 pin VGA

1 x DVI

1 x HDMI

I was testing the rig using the 15 pin VGA output, since that is what is connected to my J-Pac

Seems the video was being initialized on the 15 pin VGA output, then when the Windows drivers started, the output switched to DVI

Problem fixed, now using the DVI output with a converter.

All I need to do now is rebuild with Windows XP x64 :-)
