    I am having a damn hard time with this Nvidia TNT2 Video card. I recently installed Windows Xp on my system. When I try logging on to my ISP, my screen goes blank, then it comes back in 4-bit display. It SUCKS!!!! Can anyone tell me what is wrong. Should I just buy a new Video card? Is this common?
    Please HELP!!!
    Thanks!
    :cheers:

    Have you installed drivers for your video card or are you using the default ones that come with WinXP?

    the TNT's don't always work real well with the latest detonators...I would try to find the 3.68's or something from the 5.XX series and use them - they were meant specifically for TNT's

    hmmmm...that actually might not be a great idea, I'm not sure how XP would like the older drivers....but you could try rolling back your drivers to the default XP ones and see if that helps.

    does it only happen when you log onto the Internet?
    what exactly do you mean by 4bit display?

    it's almost certainly a software related problem...did it start immediately after you installed XP?
