    I had a riva tnt2 32 megs i think, (nvidia), and it was fine but slow and gave a cruddy appearance. So i went and bought an Nvidia geforce4 mx 440. Well i played a game that came with it and after like 7 minutes it froze. i restarted and it froze in about 4 minutes. I figured it was the included game (ballistics) so i tried out soldier of fortune 2. Again it froze after like 15 minutes, then after reboot 10 then almost as soon as i would start a game. I also tried grand theft auto 3. However i have sonic 2 on a rom and it works fine. My other pc games freeze though and i have to reboot. I could tell an error message came up with sof2 but i cant see it. I am in the process of getting some drivers and the like to fix this.
    any help would be great

    thanks for your concern. it actually did get advanced, i was reprogramming some start up strings and using vb progs. In the end i think it was the need for agp drivers. it makes sense. anyway i did get it to work, great graphics card too i would recommend. thanks, problem solved
