You got the lastest nvidia driver? and 3d as in opengl or direct3d? or both? Would help if you give a bit more details on your problem.

what?? does the vid card jerk out of the AGP slot?

jerkying while doing 3d.......is 3d cute?

need to know what the actual problem is with every bit of detail u can get. useing openGL, directX frame rates, what app/game etc etc

yeah it does it with the latest drivers and in open gl / direct 3d and is in the slot firmly.

have you got a refresh rate fix for the drivers?

06-07-2002, 09:24 PM
what do u mean by a refresh fix?
something i download?

06-07-2002, 10:04 PM
win2k and XP have a problem with nvida drivers. it keeps the refresh rate on the monitor to 60hz. normall refresh rate should be 75-85 at least.

i don't have XP so no comment on what to use or where to find it. i do know thereare several fixs out there, enjoy your search :)

well if anyone out there knows of these fix's or any sites for them could you email them to me

07-07-2002, 12:52 AM
I don't think refresh rate effects the jerkyness of the 3d apps/games. It's just how fast your monitor refreshes the images. What chipset is your motherboard? eg, VIA, ALI ?????

07-07-2002, 12:57 AM
its a via chipset, and i have the lastest drivers
i have been told the latest drivers dont work well with xp
does anyones know if this is true and if so what version do you recommend

07-07-2002, 10:52 AM
it all depends on what you call jerky ?:|

have you turned the vertical sync off ?

07-07-2002, 10:23 PM
Latest VIA 4 in 1 driver works fine in XP. I'm using it now.
You gotta tell us more on your problem.. In details.

I have a similar setup but my problem is on start up I have 3 or 4 freezes before every thing seems to settle down,latest drivers installed and before installing updated drivers remove all nvidea files by nv*.*
If I disable ti4200 at shut down and load the default, restart, shut down I have no problems starting up next day until I reanable ti 4200 then a couple of resets and then it will go all day without too much trouble.
Since starting this ramble I had one restarting automatically win reporting device driver problem then a few minutes later a freeze.In all 4 restarts this am.
I also tried my old tnt2 card and was actually able to try out morrowind and combat mission no problems no restarts etc.
Computer shop is going to change the motherboard but I have read that the psu mat not be up to the power demands anyone shed any light on this problem please

too true the above comment, try lowering detail content for a start

remeber most of the games quoted at the top are dos based

i know the matrox and navidia drivers have several problems with open gl in dos, check out http://glsetup.com/ for upto date gl drivers
unsure if it supports xp "sry' not using xp personally yet
