View Full Version : video card effing up
03-30-2004, 06:34 PM
Hey all, I have a geForce4 ti4600 in my work computer that from time to time I used to do some gaming. About 6 months ago I tried to slap it into another machine unsuccessfully, and so I brought it back to the first machine. I think I may have installed some drivers for the card that was only in this machine for a short amount of time, and so since then everytime I am gaming it freezes up on me or I get some frame drops (not sure what you call it when random crap shows on the screen). How can I make sure that I am using the right drivers, and the right software(direct X or whatever). ? I got a 6 pack for whoever can help me out.
When you look at the driver version there, compare it to the driver information in your display properties.
Right click desktop, Properties, Settings tab, Advanced. In there, there should be a tap that reads, "GeForce4 Ti4600."
Compare the numbers in there to the driver numbers listed on the website.
That should give you an idea of where you stand.

It says 184.108.40.20664. When I downloaded and ran the latest update this didn't change so it looks like I had the correct drivers. Still freezing though. Any other thoughts?

Have you tried reinstalling the latest DirectX? Also, did you make sure you completely removed the drivers for the other card that was in there briefly?

I haven't reinstalled DirectX yet I will give in a shot in the morning. Incidentally right after I made that last post I got a core dump on my PC. Sweet!

You might need to completely remove the old drivers and install a fresh set. When you upgrade drivers some of the old files dont get removed. Use detonator destroyer, etc. to get rid of em first.

Still giving me a core dump. I wonder if my card is failing :shrug: Might just do a clean install to check.
