    ok , i have the weridest prob, ok we reformatd a while ago cause we had a problem with it , so we formated, then we got everything we need, updates, etc.. so i go to play a game when i get every thing we needed and it freezes and restarted. So got back to desktop, tried playing again, and go same problem. Then i was getting mad. So i tried finding out if i had mad memory , that wasnt it , thought it was hdd, that wasnt it , so for kick and giggles i took out are Geforce 3 ti 500, and put in are old card which is a Dimond Viper v770 and it ran fine no problems at all!, so i called up Visiontek ( card manufature) and told me to send it out to check if it was damaged or what ever , got it back , with a notice say that the card was put through all the dionostics and all that and saying that there is nothing wrong. So i poped it in tryed running Need for speed Hot pursite 2 and got the same problem i had before i send it out to be fix, they alos said that it is most likely a messed up setting , so sense there wasnt nothing needed on the comp from formatting so many times trying to fix this matter we formated again , and got all the updates and also thinking that the messed up file would be fixed, but unfortaniantly its not, and got the same problem all over again , so if you took the time to read this and want to help i thank you very much lol

    Uninstall the drivers and the card by using the Device Manager. To open the device manager (xp) go to Start>Settings>Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager. Find you card under "Display Adapters" and right click on it and go to uninstall. Restart your computer. Then go to Nvidia's website (nvidia.com) and get the latest drivers for your OS. If that doesn't help there may be another program open that doesn't like games.
