Gigabyte are really lazy, and they don't make drivers. They just have links to nVidia drivers... :tazz:

yeah... it's a crap thing. I had just bought that card cos my old ti4200 crashed (when i play a game it goes to desktop or the system reset himself). then i thought to buy this card (6200) and again it crashed :'(. here in spain the 6600 costs 200€ so i can't afford (well.. i have the money but i don't want to pay so much money) so i will change it for a 5500.
thanks for you all

Hi, I was just having the same problem after I install the latest drivers from nVIDIA. I have a GeForge 6600GT 128 AGP video card. I finally fixed it by RE-INSTALLING THE LATEST AGP DRIVERS of my motherboard. after I installed, restarted my pc. opened up a video file and it works perfect.

Give that a shot and hopefully it'll work for you 2. Good Luck. :tazz:

cool. found this through google as i came across the exact problem after installing a 6600gt. funny thing is i had zero problems with it in my other machine. but i started getting random shut downs so i thought i'd throw the card in my back up machine and see what gives. was hoping it was the psu and sure enough it still shut down with my ti4400 in it.

but im thinking the card itself is what made the psu go bad.

main rig. p4 2.4, 1 gb ddr400 (xp sp2)
backup rig. amd 2600 xpm (2 ghz), 256mb ddr266 (xp sp1)

the amd has an abit-kv7 mobo, and the abit EQ thingymabob beeps like crazy when i run it now and the agp voltage is red and shows 2.0 volt.

ws using 77.30's that came with BF2 demo on both machines. but again, aside from the shut downs, everything ran fine on the p4. videos didnt freeze up and games ran fine. games run fine on the amd but videos freeze up, using +95+ cpu usage too.

gonna update the agp, even tho i think i already have the latest, and swap some power leads around inside the case. right now i think the vid card is sharing with something else, only one that would reach.
