Gainward GF2 problem


Greg Ekstam

System is up and running exept for games. Eveytime I try a game, screen either goes blank or get vertical lines and freezes. I have removed drivers and re-installed from Gainward and N-Vidia. Same. I have tried many options but am stuck. Please help. I have lots of cooling.

Have you just gotten this card? and did it ever work on games before? Vertical lines usually signal a vidboard heating or memory problem...do you have the card overclocked anymore then it already is from gainward? and is your install of XP fresh or upgrade?
ok so the vid board isn't oc'ed at all, and cooling is fine? my only other test is trying an older set of drivers like the 23.11 or some of the older 27.50's..if that doesn't work you have 2 options..

1. Take the vidboard to a friends house or your friendly local comp shop if you have one and have them see if the board works properly in a similar setup

2. re-install XP and try again..as you just built the system it could be another problem but I cannot speculate as to what

sorry man :(


I had the same problems with a geforce 2 card and the only way I got it to work was to use the standard microsoft drivers that came with XP
