My email to Sager:
I received the 9860 on Tue 11/23.
Installed WinXP w/ SP2 and the drivers from the CD. Audio and Video drivers were downloaded from sagernotebooks.com. Everything appears fine, all drivers installed w/o errors. Installed 3dMark03, 3dMark05, AquaMark3, and Sandra2005.
3dMark03 completes successfully with score of 7.1k+.
3dMark05 + AquaMark3 load up first test for each then system reboots w/o any error given. 3dMark05 on rare occasion completes first test but reboots after loading second test. Attempts to lower system default resolution to match program defaults produced no effect on outcome. System still reboots itself w/o warning.
Sandra2005 system checks reveal no notciable errors or issues. XP system reports no drivers conflicts or recognizable issues with drivers in device manager.
Multiple attempts to run 3dMark05 and AquaMark3 fail resulting in reboots. 3dMark03 still completes successfully.
Installation of game Lineage 2 results in reboot when it attempts to load first graphical screen(login).
Decide to perform total barebones install. (C partition delete/recreate/NTFS reformat)
Installed WinXP SP1 (tales of Sp2 not acting correctly had me try w/o Sp2 at all)
Installed the drivers from the CD (did not install drivers downloaded from sagernotebooks.com this time)
Currently only WinXP SP1 and default drivers from CD installed.
Installed 3dMark03. Successfully completes tests w/o problems.
Installed 3dMark05 + AquaMark3. No change. Still reboots after loading first test.
Installed Memtest32. Successful run w/o errors or reported problems.
Continued attempts to run 3dMark05 result in reboots. (Occasional system locks when not at program default resolution rather then reboot. But reboot is norm)
Installed Lineage 2. Managed to load login screen but reboots when it attempts to load next graphical screen.
Installed BattleField: Vietnam. Successfully loads to the game chooser screen but reboots when it completes loading the map and tries to display the game.
Installed Jedi Academy. Program loader errors out with the ONLY error message I get out of all this. (Error included in attachment. Notice it is fine till it tries GL)
All done in rooms 70*F or less with Mobile Meter showing CPU temps at 63*C max. (Heat dosen't appear to be the issue. Cooling for the laptop ruled out as a factor. Remember 3dMark03 runs fine but will crash immediatly after when running 3dMark05)
we have notice the issue with 3Dmark2005. Our engineering team are working it. Once the solution is available, we will let you know.
This is the best response they can give me? No mention of the fact that other then 3dMark03, NOTHING graphical runs.
