I just bought a new computer with the Geforce2 MX-400 and running on XP. I cannot play counterstrike at all. Whenever I start a game on any server, it just freezes and reboots my computer. I am going crazy! I tried running both under the 3D and Open GL, but nothing seems to work.
I have the newest drivers for my motherboard, just updated XP and the newest drivers for the Geforce2 MX-400. What could be my problem?
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling WinXP, my motherboard, the Geforce and both Half Life and counterstrike with the newest updates.
I cannot figure out what my problem is!!!
Please please please help me…
I have a crap card right now!
But about Half life and XP!!!
the game can’t work with XP and Seirra
has no updated drivers sorry!!
Can u play Return to castle wolfenstien on your comp?
sorry not drivers just software pathches to work with xp!
I don’t know, if I can play Wolfenstein. However I tryed setting my computer to at standard pc and then not installing my video card. Now I can play sometimes for hours in counterstrike but only with the direct3D and 800X600. Not even Direct3D and 1024X768… But still -now I can play CS again yahooooooo!
This proves my point about nVidia-based cards and MS–they both suck. I have had my voodoo 3 and I get great performance. I once bought a GF2mx and didnt get above 50 to 60 fps @1024 res in OGL on it–and thats with all the tweaks, refresh fixes, etc. So I took it back and kept my voodoo and get my usual 80 to 99 fps in same settings. But you should be able to play CS because I some of my CS friends have XP and play it just fine with a GF. I’ll ask em how they do it and post here when I find out. BTW, here is some urls for you to check out in the meantime-- http://www.xp-erience.org/forum/showthre…=counter+strike http://www.windowsxpuser.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=26&forum=7 —look at bottom of post and the guy says to go to nVidia site and download the drivers for XP http://www.windowsxpuser.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=143&forum=6 and this one says to disable F-Secure
I hope I helped you in anyway.
Thanks a lot! I will take a look at them. However I doubt it will work. I spent an overall of about 40 hours looking everywhere (almost) on the internet for solutions to my problem.
Here is a guy who thinks he solved the problem, but it didn’t work for me though, but maybe for someone else… http://www.teamanarchy.com/writeups.php?idx=986866324&page=2
My fps is about 40 or 50, which is not very good, but still better than on my integrated graphics card, which really sucks!
