    I have an EPOX 8rda+ mother board, an xp2200 cpu, 768 samsung pc2700 ddr ram, and a Gainward Gforce 4 TI4800 video card 128 md ddr, Sound blaster aud 2 sound card. My problem is that when I install the color card the system see's the card and installs the drivers, but when I reboot , and go to the control panel and under display (advanced, adapter) it shows only two screen resolutions.
    640x480 16bit and 800x600 16bit. I have tried 2 different set of video drivers, but both are the same result.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank You

    have you tried installing Nvidia's drivers, or just the one's M$ supplies?

    I've tried all three types of drivers, Nvida, detantor, and the Gainward. I found that Creative Media Player had a problem with the GF 4 card and when I removed it finally loaded drivers, I thought. The other program I suspect is Norton SystemWorks 2003. I plan to uninstall it tonight and see if that helps.

    Thank you for your response.

    wierd problem...that card is it new? if so did you really get rid of ALL the old video drivers...ie the links in the registry...if its not and upgrade try uninstalling everything.. that might be gainward vid card related....incl..stuff in the registry...and then when xp starts up if it detects your card and asks to install the drivers cancel that and let it boot to its standard display adapter...from there on try using the newest nvidia drivers... that should work...i guess :confused:

    it might be norton, it's generally a good idea to disable any AV software when installing drivers

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.
