    I've looked around the forums but haven't found an answer so... for like the last 4 months or so my computer's been hanging in the middle of games for liek 20 secs and then resuming - really really really bad in UT2003. Nyways so i formatted and decided to install the asus drivers (have an asus card) instead of nvidia's. These give horrible device failure errors w/ both 3dmark2003 and Unreal 2. I also re-tried the nvidia drivers and a set of older asus drivers. Nothing works, the games/3dmark2003 either hang or crash. It doesn't make sense cuz my system specs (p4 2ghz ti 4600 512 RIMM etc) aren't bad so :s as of now, i've reached a point where i'm about to go like --> sooo any help will be GREATLY appreciated.

    btw i'm using Dx 9

    An exakt system spec would help alot..

    Are you monitoring your system temps..?
    If so what are your readings..:?: (Check bios)

    Stay away from your Asus driver that came with the card and use detonator 41.09 or 42.68

    p4 2 gig
    512 rimm
    ti 4600
    2 maxtor 60 gigs 7200rpm
    audigy gamer
    intel d850mv mb
    dx9
    winxp

    i have all the windows updates (like sp1a etc) and i've tried 41.09 and they didn't help at all, same old problems as pre-formatting... and it's just a basic tower etc but i checked with intel active monitor everythings in the green. my worst fear is it's a hardware problem but if that's the case, i do have a warrenty, so... nyways thnx so far

    the link for 42.68 drivers from the benchmarks thread is dead --> the mirrors don't work, so can't try that :s

    That could be a posibility so what PSU do ya have and what's it's rating (if it's a good one it should also show on it what the total combined wattage of the 3.3v & 5v rails is and though not as critical with Intel setups can ya give us this value if it's there as well). ;)

    Thanx for everyone's help, problem solved --> it was the heating... my temp was hovering around 32 celsius (checked w/ intel active monitor) and so i popped it open and ran a house fan by the computer to cool it down to 22, then ran 3dmark to a smooth 1572, so not bad from 300 :D

    thnx tweaker and wiggo

    No 32c is not to hot, it must be a misreading from the mobo.
    The actual temp was probably 70+ if it caused this problems..
