    I have a duel monitor system with a Voodoo 3, 2000 AGP card and an Nvidia GeForce 2 mx 400 64mb PCI card. the GeForce card has the most current official Nvidia drivers and I use it as my primary video card. When I try to play Max Payne on the Voodoo card it plays as well as that card can, but I want to play it on the GeForce card. When I choose the GeForce 2 card it gives me an error saying "Error: setFullscreen - creating the device failed: E_OUTOFMEMORY." I can watch the intro cinematics, but when the game tries to initialize, it gives me this error dialog box.

    My system
    450 MHZ P3
    256 MB SDRAM
    Win XP Pro

    I had the same problem with Ghost Recon. Use different drivers,
    for your GeForce 2.

    I get that with my agp card when I try to start it up on the Max, no pun intended. Try toning down some of the options or lower the in game screen rez.

    Once I swallowed my pride and lowered the setting, that error went away. Also, make sure you have their latest pact. I think it 1.9? Been awhile sinced I played. I needed it for XP.

    I had a problem like that with max payne. I was running it in a compatibility mode and when i took that off it worked fine.
