I seem to be having a problem that’s completely stomping me. I just got a BFG Geforce FX 5600 NON Ultra the problems is that ever now and then I’ll go to use the computer. When I move the mouse one of two things has happen. One the desktop has down bad down to 16 bit color and 640 x 480 and there a error message saying that windows recovered failed drivers or two it looks as if windows crashes when trying to enter into the screen saver.

My System

AMD XP 1700
Tyan Trinity KT400 (S2495)
512 MB DDR Ram
Sound Blaster Audigy Gamier

I wanted to know if anyone has had a similar problem.

that is really odd..

um... I am trying to think... haven;t heard of the dtop lowering bit rate and resolution like that... with those symptoms...

try cleaining out all the drivers and then reinstall the nvidia WHQL drivers CLEAN again... perhaps it is something buggered in the drivers install that is messing things up...

perhaps after I have had some sleep I will be able to ponder this better :D

am sure some of the other experts will be able to offer some better advice than mine :)

just give em time

Thank you for the help I uninstalled all of the display drive and then manual deleted anything left in the folder. I also used regedit and found all of the entries that had to do with the card and deleted them as well. I have reinstalled the latest drivers and I'm waiting to see if it happens again. You could be right I'll have to see but I would have to say that if it works it wouldn’t surprise me. I've seen some strange thing in my time working with computers.

Thanks I'll let you know if this works.

4x==8x agp in terms of real world performance...

2 times theoretical bandwidth but no tests conducted so far show a performance delta between the two which would in anyway be considered noticeable...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
