I'm at the end of my rope here people, so any help would GREATLY be appreciated! I just bought a PowerColor GeForce 2 Ti and popped it into my Win 98 box and the same day did a clean install of XP Home. Everything in XP works fine except graphics stuff. When I went to update my drivers (27.10), I noticed XP had set my card as a GeForce 2 DDR. Still not bad...
I figured the driver update would fix it. It did, when I booted back up, I checked and my Ti was recognized and running fast. For about 5 minutes. Then everything locks up (Except my mouse sometimes) and XP reboots. When I get back in, it tells me it's a problem with my graphics drivers. Oh, and yes I have the latest VIA 4-in-1's installed.
I have tried the drivers from NVidia, and the new 27.20's, the 23.12's in there with no luck. Same lockup. So I finally rolled back the driver to the original windows one. My main problem is that I can't play anything with OpenGL with the basic XP drivers. That and it runs like crap compared with how the new drivers ran... Now for system specs:

Mobo: Asus K7V
Video: PowerColor GeForce 2 Ti
Proc: Athalon 700
Sound: SBLive!
Network card: Linksys

I've also attatched DXDiag for anyone who knows what they're doing. PLEASE HELP!!!

Re-Help

You are probably also getting the BSOD where it tells you that the driver got into an infinite loop.
I had the exact same problem. I tried abiut every Asus and Nvidia driver that I could find and the only one that worked for me was the 23.11 driver.
Also it is very important that you do NOT use a dwonload accelerator and must turn off your virus scanner (this is also being told on the download page). I had several problems by not following these rules.


Good luck

Nope, it just reboots after locking for 10 seconds or so. And I've tried the 23.11's.

I don't use either. :(

Great, the article basically tells you that you're SOL. Hmm, I have another idea... Anyone know anything about power supplies?

Thanks guys, I managed to fix it for now. I'll pick up a new power supply in a week or so. For now, to get it to work I had to disable fastwrites.
