    Well I seem to be only able to use the NT drivers I got with my card unfortunitly when I try and use the XP drivers when I bootup the PC and login to XP it hangs I have to restart and it still hangs which means probably im using the wrong drivers. So what im pritty much saying here is only the NT drivers work. But I dont get any options or nothing in the display properties it just lists the card memory used etc. So okay i can play Medal Of Honor / Return to castle Wolfestein etc probably half life any game that does not detect the card like the new ones like Grand Theft Auto 3 etc. Im annoyed at this i was looking forward to playing Battelfield 1942. Looks like im stuck with what games i got. But why cant it play MOD3 etc which requires a 16mb card and GTA3 dont ? Because it's not proparly installed ? And why does the card hang using the XP drivers or Win2k drivers. its a 64mb Geforce 4 ? And why dont Nvidia offer support ? None at all ...

    Nvidia only supplies chipsets. Since they don't build the graphics cards, they don't support them.

    I would check with the manufacturer of your video card and try the drivers from them. Usually the manufacturers tweak the drivers a little specifically for their cards.
