GeForce 4 Ti4200 Non-XP Compatible!?


Kaila Yu

Okay. To start off, here are my system specs.

1ghz p3 (not overclocked)
384 ddr (pc2100) ram
300w enermax <edit> power supply </edit>
asus cuv266 mobo
xtasy geforce4 ti4200 (128mb)

Well I could not get this card to work at all with windows xp. Everytime I played a game in direct3d it crashed with the audio sound loop. Amazingly opengl did not crash. I have absolutely no idea why. Counter-strike in opengl would not crash, but it would in direct3d. GTA3 (directx game) crashed, and warcraft 3 (also directx game) crashed. I tried using different sets of drivers, updating my bios, installing 4in1 drivers, using a different powersupply, plugging the card in my friends comp (which worked on xp), putting it in a well ventilated area (averaged 80F for mobo) and after analyzing everything I figured that I would just install 98 and see if it would work. Well it works flawlessly now. Only thing is that I want my XP back ;( I tried using different versions of directx also, but had no luck with those. If anyone knows whats going on or have something new to try just let me know :D thanks.


i agree with catch, a lot of times when you change hardware its best to reinstall windows. i've run into conflicts at points when installing new hardware into my current system.

haha...well okay, ill give it a shot. i really dont think my psu has anything to do with it. opengl seems to be working perfectly with xp. just not directx.

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
