I have been having this problem for a while. My newer Direct-X based games such as UT2K3, Battlefield 1942 and Hitman 2 do not work. Hitman 2 doesnt even launch. Also I have recently been experiencing random lockups to where i have to do a hard boot, especially when Im online. I have tried everything, Direct 9.0, which screwed up my comp even more to the point of reformat. I tried installing the VIA 4 in 1 drivers since I have a VIA chipset but nothing, still the same problems. Newest non-beta Nvidia drivers for GeForce 2 which are 40.72, nothing. I am so fed up with this crap. Does anyone know what I can do. Here are my system specs: AMD Athlon 1.2 Ghz 266 FSB Trinity KT-A S2390B mobo VIA KT-133 chipset GeForce 2 MX 400 64 mb VC w/ 40.72 Det Drivers 512 MB SDRAM PC133 Any system spec i neglected to mention, if you catch it bring it to my attention so you can serve me better Thanks to anyone and everyone in advance.
