    I am having nothing but trouble and problems with my system freezing. I have tried downloading many different drivers for my Asus 32 mb Geforce2 MX pure video card from asus, nividia and other websites. I was wondering where I could find some drivers that will work with my card. Someone suggested to try 21.83 drivers for windows XP pro for my video card since they are good. I have no idea waht version is good and will work. My system freezes and I am sick and tired of it doing this randomly. I get a nv4_disp error, a memory dump, and someting about an infinite loop. Has there been any dirvers released that are newer then this version of drivers and that are verified and certified by microsoft? I would really appreciate if someone could help me out, as I am going to go bald soon, and I am very close to throwing my video card and windwos XP Pro to the garbage. Thankyou very much for any help!

    Cheers!

    I forgot to mention that someone suggested that I format my drive since I upgraded it from windows 2000 Pro and I should do a fresh install of either 2000 Pro again or Windows XP Pro. They told me that I should rip all the hardware out of my system and install it one by one with drivers and rebooting each time. The first thing they said that I should put in is my video card, install my via 4in1 drivers, reboot, install my video drivers, reboot, install via 4in1 drivers again, test it out and then install the rest of the hardware the same way (one by one, not installing via 4in1 anymore) trying to see whatmight cuase my problem. This sounds like a lot of work (I dont really want to do this, but if I have no other choice and is the last resort, then I will do it) and I was wondering if I could just do it by installing video drivers form my video card.

    Another Problem

    I was wondering why is it that if I install my via 4in1 driver along with my video driver (for an MSI K7T266 PRO2 mobo with the above video card) then my agp write (or is it speed) settings are set only to 2x. With my old Asus A7V mobo all I needed to do is install via 4in1 drivers along with my video drivers and the agp write (or speed) settings where set automatically right away to 4x. The only way that I can get the agp settings to 4x is by physically going to my bios and changing it there. Is there any other possible way of having the agp settings set to 4x without having to go physically into the Bios and having to switch the settings in there? Please let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks again!

    Cheers!
