 GForce 2 mx400 freeze in Windows XP Post a Reply  
From: Darren on 12/01/2002
I have a PCChips 810 motherboard (Not good I know!) and have installed a Gforce 2 graphics card. When I boot into windows XP its okay for around 5 minutes then locks up? I have installed the new drivers from nvidia.

Does anyone have any ideas?

La unica forma de hacer funcionar una Geforce 2 MX con el mother PCchips 810 es NO instalar los drivers de AGP que vienen en el cd. Cuando el programa pregunta, solo instalar modem, sonido, etc. pero NO VxD (AGP)

Also try getting the latest AGP drivers for you m\board.These should be installed BEFORE any vid-card drivers, preferably before any other drivers (mouse, usb devices), after a clean install of windows.Also, some newer m\boards will only accept a 1.5v card.Cards of higher voltage will fry your AGP slot and danage your motherboard.
Good luck...

I have a Pcchips 810 xp, with AMD Athlon Xp1800+, and want to install a XFX (Pine) GeForce 4 MX 440 DDR, had no problems detecting the card, and installed the drivers correctly, but Windows XP starts and after 10 seconds, more or less, it frezzes. Ive tried several drivers and it keeps doing the same. Anyone here know how to solve it? Are the card and motherboard not compatible? Or is it Windows XP?

First of all if your getting lines and boxes with your video card and it is locking up in windows. Thats a pretty good sign the card is defective. Or the card is overheating. The lines and boxes are caused due to faulty memory modules on the video card, now this can also happen if the video card is overheating. Get an exhaust fan for a video card i have em for 19.99 and they work wonders for this type of issue.

This is the closest topic I could find to my issue, and thought someone here could help me resolve it. Thanks in advance.
I have gforce2 mx400 32MB card, an Athlon T-Bird CPU and a motherboard with VIA Bios. I am getting green (and sometimes red) vertical lines on the screen in in little blocks about 1/2 deep and 1 inch across sort of scattered onth top half of the screen. They just superimpose themselves over whatever is on the screen and sometimes go away on their own. It does not hang up the system, but is annoying.

So besides getting the latest "detonator" drivers from nvidia (which has no effect) what else is there to do?

I (and everyone else that reads this board) would be very interested in knowing if those drivers suggested by 'Mike' work. Please keep me (us) posted of your successes (hoping).

Also you can try using safe-settings in your BIOS and make sure that it successfully completes the full memory testing and slowly tweak it (if it fixes your problem). Oh and with 5 minutes you wouldn't have to use safemode to remove your drivers.

Try usig the 30.82 detonators from nVidia they are the fastest and most reliable for your GeForce 2 MX400. Use safemode to delete the old drivers. If this doesn't work you just re-install windows and use 30.82 drivers.
