My NVIDIA GeForce TNT2 Ti300 has died... I am missing the color RED in my display.

I have tried the following different driver's

77.72_win2kxp_english_whql.exe
71.89_win2kxp_international.exe
original driver disk that came with AGP Card

Same results with all three, so I have decided that this card is toast and moved on... :tazz:

unless someone else knows a fix .... ;)

In the meantime (until my next big paycheck) I have aquired a large box of miscellaneous video cards of all types... with no driver disks (no big deal...god made www.driverguide.com) or so I thought.

The current temporary card (and best in the box) i am using (PIECE OF $%!^) is a Matrox Graphics Millennium PCI MGA-2064W B2. After installing it Windows XP automatically recognized it and automatically loaded the drivers. It is working OK I guess, but I have noticed that I am unable to change the Color Quality above "Medium 16 Bit" while the screen resolution is set to "1024x768".

If I lower the screen resolution to "800x600" I can then change the color quality to "Highest 32 Bit".

I hate 800x600, so that is not an option.

My 3 questions are as follows?

1. Does anyone know of a fix for the NVIDIA Card?

2. Is this the maximum capability of this MATROX card... or is there a better driver out there, that I have been unable to find... and I have looked in all the usual places.

3. This is a Temp Card for about two months.... what is a good and stable card for watching movies and RPG gaming.......... for under the $250 price limit.... (I got bills to pay also).

If you need a temp card you can get a 6200 for about 50 dollars th low profile ones. Bog standard but better than what you had before.
