GF3 3D issues



This isn't as bad as the subject may relay, but it is a pain in the bum. I built a system for my friend, using XP professional and the latest drivers for all his hardware (save the motherboard drivers). Here's his system:

Abit KG7 + Athlon 1.4ghz 266fsb
512mb Crucial DDR PC2100 memory
Geforce3 Ti200 (MSI) (23.12 currently, 23.11 gave same problem)
Maxtor 40gb 7200rpm HD ATA100
SB Live! 5.1
Linksys 10/100 NIC (nc100)
Plextor 16x10x40x CDRW
Pioneer 16X DVD-ROM

I'm sure the problem has been adressed by now, but it seems whenever he exits Counter-Strike (I've heard of similar probs with Diablo 2) the resolution change back to his desktop resolution fails, and the video card basically takes a crap. I can only assume it's a Video problem because from what I see the resolution doesn't change back from 64x480 very well, and the video freezes, while any programs running in background will continue un-phased. The only lead I've heard is that it's the 23.x detonator drivers and XP, and that I should switch his to any pre-23.xx detonators. Anyone having this same problem, or know the solution?


Had the same problem with CS 1.3

Solved it by exiting CS manually (open Console, type "exit")



I run CS on the same resolution as my Desktop and have no issues ...

That may help

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
