    I some probs with XP not all hardware related but mostly, so here goes:

    I recently fresh installed Win XP on my PC. (previously Win2000)

    Since then, I find my TV out will NOT work (cant watch DVD's on me telly) :mad:

    My gamepad wont calibrate or work properly in games
    (Its old and crappy, but worked fine under Win2k)

    Counter-Strike continuously crashes when I return to the desktop and locks up the PC. (I lose icons and cant get to Task Manager, can only reset machine)

    Here's me specs:

    P3 1ghz cpu
    512mb sdram
    Intel 815 chipset mobo
    AC 97 sound (onboard)
    G-Force 2 Ti 64mb w/tvout
    56k modem
    10/100 Ethernet
    40gb Hard Drive

    Nuthin' amazin, but everything worked fine under Win2000

    I'm currently using 23.11 video drivers (also in 2k without probs)

    Any ideas guys? Or have I gotta "Roll Back" to good ole 2000?

    Cheers :D

    OK, gonna basically answer my own question here! LoL :D

    I found a few other posts which said they had problems with the 23.11 video drivers, so I updated to the 23.12's and whatdaya know, TV out is now working! :D
    Hopefully my games will not crash out now either.
    Gamepad still sux tho', but hey, cant have it all i guess!
