    Having a video Card problem in XP

    Hi folks i just recently got a bunch of new parts a Athlon XP 1700, Epox 8k7a MB 256MB DDR and A Gainward Geforce 2 TI 450 with TV out. Here is my issue I am using Windows XP and when I play a game such as Madden 2002 for example. My windows xp crashes and reboots my machine at different times in the game. I turned off the auto restart to get some info on the crash dump and it says the nvidia dll file is causing the failure. has anyone ever experience this issue and what can I do to correct it. Doesnt seem to be a heat issue I have a fan on the card and a another fan blowing on the card as well.

    Try different NVIDIA driver versions.
    I like the 22.80's.
    Try downloading from www.reactorcritical.com

    I had the same problem on my MSI K7T266 Pro2 MB with Creative GeForce2 Pro. Also crashing and rebooting. There are several things you can try; try getting the Nvidia v21.85 drivers from Gainward or Nvidia. That helped for me. Try that in combination with one or more of the following;
    get the latest bios
    get the latest Via 4in1 driver from http://www.viaarena.com/?PageID=2
    you can also try the Via agp driver from the same site.

    Finally there is a Via beta patch for this problem. Via says its incorporated in the latest Via 4in1 driver but you can also try the patch itself. There is one for the Nvidia v23.11 driver here http://wxperience.theinfiltrator.net/drivers.php

    I tried several from the above and that solved the problem for me.
