Do U encounter other problem when playing other types of games?
Check your mothboard BIOS setting, you might have set the AGP mode to 4X. Set it back to 2X.
Set you AGP Texture Mem to 64MB if you have 128 MB of system memory.

Get the latest detonator driver from www.nvidia.com

Thanks for replying..

I dont get any other problems..I have tried 1 x on AGP, but that didn't work...i haven't tried 2 x...

I don't encounter any other problems, only the shimmering of the textures in some games...

I have my AGP Texture Mem at 32 MEG, i have 196MEG of memory...

any more suggestions?

Thanks

Shelton, are you referring your card as the Nvidia Riva TNT2 M64? All of the Riva TNT 2 card runs at 2X AGP. Please set the option to run at 2X in the BIOS and don't forget to install the latest Via 4 in 1 service pack for your motherboard. You can get it here www.viahardware.com .

When it ask you to choose an option in the display card installation, select to install the card in Turbo mode. Choosing the Standard Mode will let your card run in 1X.
Pls set yor AGP tex. Mem at 64MB which more better since you have 196 MB system RAM.

Thanks for replying,

OK i will try what you said. I installed the VIA drivers and did not choose Turbo Mode, so I will reinstall it with Turbo mode.

I do have the nVidia TNT 2 M64 card...is it possible that the graphics card is too slow for my CPU?

Thanks again
