I have a Fusion 5 RT Lite that has been driving me BONKERS!!

Used it for about 6 months as a temporary solution as I am in a apt now and can not set up my dish (R5000). I just built a new pc and its not playing nice... constant BSODs. I have tried lots of different versions of drivers and none seem to help. It would cause the PC to crash at the most random times(sometimes 3 times a day or once in a week).

I guess it could be the card went bad but I had no problems before the rebuild and ITS FREE to you so give it a shot.

First to PM me gets it. I have a feeling this wont take long.

HDhomerun here i come!!

I hear your pain, and your outcome. I had a F3Gold that worked fine for months, then I added something else on the PC and could never get it to work again.

It took me a little longer to give it away for free; IIRC, almost several hours

I was really going nuts trying to figure out the problem. When I finished the new the build it worked great for about a week with no problems. Then the crashing began. At first I thought it could have been due to a bad stick of ram as I would get an error on the same ram address. I removed a stick of ram and it didn't crash for a couple of days and I thought I found it. Crash! D-oh! I swapped the ram out with the stick I took out previously and it went a couple more days. Crash! I ran debug and analyzed the minidump and it said: Crash probably due to ZuluCap.sys. I ran a search and found it was a Fusion 5 driver.

Woo-hoo I found it!! So I went online and found the latest driver and installed it. It ran for about a week! CRASH!! AAHHHH

I went through probably 7 to 8 different drivers trying to find a release that may work. With each new driver it would take a couple of days before it would crash. After a month, I gave up.

Well I'm shipping it to its new home today. I hope it can play nice for its new owner.
