Hi everyone

I have a question about my video card, I have a "Maxi Gamer Cougar Graphics card (TNT 2, M64) 32MB" Made by Guillemot and I have the latest drivers for it.. I have had it for about two years now and its always worked perfect..but lately its been doing weird things on my system, when I play games mostly that is, well first off things it does is when games load (like when your about to play the game) it flashes "blinks" all sorts of colors, sometimes just black, and my sound skips too when this happens and sometimes when it does this on other games it freezes the game "lockup" also I should mention when I boot my system up it flashes too, just before the windows splash screen at startup. I've also noticed a decreases in performance such as lag

(also as a side note): One time I played with the card clock speed and made it go from 130Mhz video speed to 135Mhz, I don't think this screwed it up though it wasn't that high, I herd of people clocking cards way more then that, it was only 5 digits higher, I returned it to default after it started acting weird, but after that it still was acting weird, Do you think this screwed it up?

I've even formatted my computer twice with different settings to test out if anything would make it work like it did

Ima running Win ME also, I used to run Win98SE with it, it worked great, It also worked great with Win ME but something screwing up, BTW I don't recommend people use Win ME its worse then 98SE

My Comp specs is: Celeron 400Mhz, 256MB, Win ME, as for sound it uses the onboard sound, I dont have space for a sound card even tho theres a free slot ( small apt box )
My system model is M748LMRT if that helps any ..

Should I download Nvida driver for my card?, becuse when I used the one for my card @ Guillemot it was specifically for mine, Does nvida work for my card as well? and or is better?
