    I own an Athlon 1.4 ghz machine. My previous OS was Windows ME, and I had no problem with it. After I did a clean install for Windows XP Professional Edition, everything works fine, the GUI is all nice and clear until yesterday. I installed the game Red Alert 2, and tried to play it. The game is play under DOS, the graphic is like 16 bits and the screen size is only 800x600 pixals. I tried with few other games, and I am receiving same kind of problem, but when I go back to Windows enviroment, everything were looking great. I would like to see if anyone can able to help me out?

    I tried to download the new driver from Nivida.com already, also used the compatibility feature in Windows XP Professional Edition.

    Thanks

    EDITED: I am clueless, please help

    Check DXDiag, the only thing I can think of, if it isn't the nvidia drivers, is directx itself!



    ps I removed the same post from the gaming forum, just so we can keep it at one thread so we can see what progress we are making.
    Cheers for the heads up Kylie.

    DirextX?

    How do I use the DirectX Diagnostic? and what do I look for? I have no knowledge on using this kind of stuffs.

    Thanks :)

    Result from DirextX Diag.

    I ran the DirectX Diag, there's no problem at all. The only problem I found is

    The file nv4_disp.dll is not digitally signed, which means that it has not been tested by Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Labs. You may be able to get a signed driver from the manufacturer of the hardware device.

    But this shouldn't matter, because it's the latest Nivida drivers.

    I also tried the compatiablity feature. What else I can do?


    Thanks

    Does sound like a driver problem actually, try reverting to 21.83
    I think http://www.m3dzone.com will have it...
