Alrighty then…so we don’t know what the fix is for this strange problem, let alone know if there IS even a fix. Here’s what everyone is thinking:
1.) For NVIDIA cards, and ATI cards, updating the drivers 9 times out of 10 doesn’t do anything.
2.) Some think it’s due to WQHL and non QWHL drivers.
3.) Bios settings as far as apperture size, the 4x stuff, and the like.
4.) Perhaps the updated BIOS aren’t right? My friend has his older BIOS, rather than the ones XP installed, and his works fine. (He’s running XP Pro)
5.) VIA chipset drivers? Perhaps the VIA chipset is just plain incompatible? Also, I’ve been discouraged from downloading the 4 in 1 drivers. They tend to screw things up.
6.) Could it be Direct X compatibility? People with newer cards, mainly DX 8 complient cards (GF3 and above for NVIDIA) don’t seem to be having the problem. Anyone with GF2’s and below are, seeing as how they aren’t fully DX8 compatible.
Well, that’s my little synopsis. I doubt it’s really any help, but those are some of my theories. If anyone has any solutions for this stuff, or has a comment about the info presented here, please mail me at Brando43@aol.com.
