Okay. To start off, here are my system specs. 1ghz p3 (not overclocked) 384 ddr (pc2100) ram 300w enermax <edit> power supply </edit> asus cuv266 mobo xtasy geforce4 ti4200 (128mb) Well I could not get this card to work at all with windows xp. Everytime I played a game in direct3d it crashed with the audio sound loop. Amazingly opengl did not crash. I have absolutely no idea why. Counter-strike in opengl would not crash, but it would in direct3d. GTA3 (directx game) crashed, and warcraft 3 (also directx game) crashed. I tried using different sets of drivers, updating my bios, installing 4in1 drivers, using a different powersupply, plugging the card in my friends comp (which worked on xp), putting it in a well ventilated area (averaged 80F for mobo) and after analyzing everything I figured that I would just install 98 and see if it would work. Well it works flawlessly now. Only thing is that I want my XP back ;( I tried using different versions of directx also, but had no luck with those. If anyone knows whats going on or have something new to try just let me know thanks.
