After re-installing windows XP on my machine, I have got my pc set up again and running like new, except for the graphics card.
My machine is a custom build (not by me) and this is the spec.
- AMD Sempron 2300+ processor
- ASUS A7V880 motherboard
- 512MB RAM
- Nvidia GeForce4 MX4000 64MB DDR Graphics card
- Windows XP SP2
- HP x2207h monitor
Prior to my re-installation of windows I use to run programs like world of warcraft, flight sim 2004 and windows media player perfectly fine. A little slow obviously due to the under powered pc, but never the less, fine.
Now here is my problem...
Since the reinstall, I have updated everything and installed the driver for the graphics card that came with it on the disc. However, although the gfx card is recognised by windows etc, and I can run any resolution I want, when I try to play music on media player, the visualisation seems to crash it. Initially the monitor goes black, then goes to sleep before the computer restarts. I get this same problem when trying to run the dxdiag tests, play WoW, fullscreen video etc.
I have tried numerous drivers for my gfx card, but no success. This is driving me crazy, I could obviously do without shelling out too much money (being a student), and dont see why I should need to, as it used to work perfectly fine.
Thanks in advance to anyone that can shed any light on this matter
