    I'm running a GeoForce3 Ti500 on Win 98. Its been working great then all of a sudden I started to get small vertical lines all over the screen and the computer would eventually lock up. The only way I can stop it is to turn the graphics accelerator down to "None". This of course will not let me load any of my games....any ideas on what the problem could be?

    Is it overclocked? Also, if you're using the latest drivers, try going back to 4x.xx Detonator and see if it helps.

    From what it sounds like (the steady, progressive drift), the problem could be heat-related. Make sure your fan is running at the proper speed, too.

    I've tried using the 43.45 and 45.23 drivers and as soon as I kick the acceleration up the lines (Horizontal not vertical as I mentioned earlier) show up again. The more I increase it, the worse it gets. There was no indication of a day it was fine, the next it was messed up. What do you mean by overclocked?
