ti 4200 wont run 3d 2001 please help
i have just fitted a new (aopen) gforce 4200 128meg vivo and it wont run 3dmark 2001 it just keeps booting back to desktop or restarting the pc
BELOW ARE THE THINGS I HAVE TRIED
installed latest drivers from nvidia 29.42
installed latest beta drivers 30.30
installed the latest via drivers 4in1 440
reinstalled 3d mark 2001
my os was reinstalled approx 2 months ago
checked the bios settings in acordance with mr stevos guide
one thing that is strange is if i enable write to read the machine will not boot.
i have tried to run 3d mark 2000 and it wont work as well.
reinstalled directx 8.1 3d mark says in system inf that it is v8 but i have downloaded 8.1 fresh.
i was expecting great things from his graphics card only to be very dissapointed.
my old geforce2 mx 400 ran the tests without fault.
please help i am stuck.
