Angry CSPPC (060@50Mhz/604e@200Mhz) problem, please help!

hey guys!

firstoff excuse me for my bad english.

yesterday i recieved my new amiga (a4000d in a tower, csppc, mediator, voodoo2, scandoubler, ...)

if i'm booting from the os3.9 partition, the system works fine (under 68k) but from the os4 partition the screen freezes after a few moments. the early-startup-menu of os4 shows me, there is a ppc-processor @ 200 mhz.

the last 15 trys the system crashed before it came to the os4-startup-screen. it freezed at the cyan-screen (the multi-colored screens at startup on the scandoubler-output)

i tried to install os4 from my cd (under os3.9, not with bootdisk) but the installation crashed at the country-selection on the first try. the second try it crashed earlier...

the 060 and the scsi-drives work fine, so i think, it cant be a contact-problem of the csppc but today after work i'll check that.

showconfig under os3.9 only shows the 060@50mhz cpu/mmu/fpu but no ppc (i'm not sure if showconfig of os3.9 reconizes ppc-processors) the programm 'whichamiga' i downloaded from aminet crashes at startup with the message 'evaluating system'. but os4 worked for a few moments so i believe the ppc is not dead because os4 deactivates the 68k processor, if i'm right.

does anyone have an idea what could be the problem? please help!

greets markus

do a simple test... download AMIGAAMP and use it's WOS engine to play an mp3... if it crashes then it can mean that the ppc is dying... a common failure in csppc cards (dce especially)
