Geforce2 mx400 and Autocad 2k
Recently I put a Geforce2 mx400 in 2 machines running Autocad2000.
One is Asus 7100 pro, the other leadtek.
Everything works fine except for when they use the MText editor, they cannot see see the "i-beam" cursor. Its like Black cursor on black background. All other machines, the "i-beam" would change to white, so that it would be visible.
When I use Word2k on the machines and switch to black background, the cursor do change.
Both machines displayed the cursors fine before I installed the Geforce2 cards.
One of them had a Geforce256 working fine until the card blew.
Both are using latest Detonator drivers from Nvidia.

I installed older drivers and it works fine.
This leads me to believe somewhere along the way, the drivers changed something which doesnt change the cursor to the opposite color of the background in the mtext editor.
The newer drives default to a certain setting which I need to change in order to make it work right.
Any idea on which settings to try changing?
I am going to keep installing new drivers one update at a time and see which version is the problem.

I've always (after my experience at least) stayed far away from the 23.11 drivers. My 3dmark2001 scores dropped in HALF of what Igot with my 21.81 drivers.
I'm currently quite happy with 21.83

simple: someone broke something they shouldn't have with newer drivers.
newer doesn't always mean better.
