    Need major help!!!!!!!! I was wondering if anyone might have any ideas on why windows xp pro does not see all 64mb, it sees only 32mb, of my nvidia geforce2 mx200 agp card but windows 98SE does. I have all current drivers and tried most earlier drivers and I do have everything set to 4x agp. Here is my system’s specs:

    are you sure it's an MX200? The MX200 is only 32mb and the MX400 is 64 MB.

    What does the card itself report? You can usually see that just before BIOS comes up and starts counting memory. If you don't have time to see it due to a "slow" screen or something, try the Pause button. Press any other key to unpause afterwards.

    In light of the recent article on Nvidia products (today's front page), it probably is a 32 MB card with 64 MB stamped on the box, and a "fixed" driver displaying false 3DMark results!:rolleyes:

    just as an fyi i finally figured it out. if any one cares here was what was wrong.

    windows xp detected it as a geforce2 mx//mx400 with 32 mb of ram, but windows 98se saw it as a geforce2 mx 100/200 w/64mb. what i did was installed a geforce2 mx driver for windows 2000 and it sees all the memeory in xp now. i thought it was kinda wierd but it worked. so thanks everyone who help.
