    Hello.

    So this problem is something that I've had for some time but I generally avoided it. After a while, I just decided to get it done with. I have a rather old computer, made by emachines and it uses an nVIDIA GeForce4 MX Integrated GPU. It has been a hassle trying to update the drivers for it however. Whenever I download and install the updates, everything seems to run smoothly. However, when I run some kind of program after the reboot and all, the graphics appear pixelated and such. When running the desktop (as I am now), everything appears fine. However when I were to say turn on a game or something along those lines, then everything goes wrong. Help? :eek:

    Here is the newest driver:

    http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_93.71_2.html

    However, whenever I've had to install/use an nvidia card, I've always had to go into their archive and try 2 or 3 older drivers before I find one that's satisfactory. So, on that link I gave, go to the left side and check out the XP/2000 driver archive which takes you to this page here:

    http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp-2k_archive.html

    I generally work my way down the list jumping 2 or 3 at a time till I find one I like.

    Well, I went on the archived list since I've been having some problems with the latest ones and found a good version. Not the latest, but its better than drivers from 4 years ago eh? :)
