    geforce4 ti4400 problems

    i have a 128mb geforce4 ti4400 that a bough a couple years back and for the past year or so, its been freezing whenever i start a game.

    when the problem first started it used to go at least an hour before it would freeze, now it doenst last 2 minutes. its only in 3D games. when playing games with no graphics (risk) it works fine. ive tried downloading new drivers but nothing fixes it. im so confused on whats happening.

    the interesting thing is ive found a small forum online (i forget the site) that had 5 or 6 ppl with the same exact same problem with the same card but from different companies (mine was from leadtek) they never found a solution

    the computer game would just freeze and the screen would not have any motion. a split second of the audio would rerun over and over sounding like a screech. the only thing i can do is hold the power down. ive done this so much ive screwed up a hard drive and had to buy a new one. im desparate here. any help?

    im running

    amd athlon 2000+
    512mb ddr ram
    leadtek geforce4 ti4400 128mb
    160gb hard drive

    please please please help me

    Yeah, what you should know is that your TI4400 is WAY more powerfull than that 5200.

    Albatron is a pretty good brand, they're big in Europe A regular 5200 for 70 bucks... that's expensive IMO!

    yea, anyways, how much are you looking to spend, and what preformance do yo expect to get... do you want something that will match the ti4400 preformance or do you want something better?

    yeah i thought that the 4400 was better but i figured it would be cheaper to get a new graphics and not a new hdd. any way how much do you have to spend or want to spend. i think your card is on its last legs. tells us what you want and we will help you out

    Lightbulb

    This should be way better as far as preformance/price goes compared to the 5200 mentioned above

    well to be completely honest i only have whatever my ti4400 sells for on ebay. which is around 50 or 60.

    but what i REALLy want to do is to fix my current ti4400. i never knew my card was better than a 5200. i just thought 5200 was better since it came out later. what would be a card equivalent of its performance?

    does anyone have a way to fix this problem?

    Something like 5700NU should come very close the preformance of a ti4400

    I have that very same card in one of my boxes. Although its not quite as fast as my Ti4400 in another box, it doesn't do too bad either. For the price its great, especially since its got the 128bit memory interface as well as VIVO. The cooler is actually pretty weak, its just a small hsf with a big blue plastic piece that you see there covering it. It does have 3 blinking RGB LED's though.

    Which drivers are you downloading? The best drivers for the ti-line of cards are the 43.xx through 45.xx Also, what is the ambient temperature of your system? maybe the card is overheating.

    I have been running my ti4200 at speeds close to a ti4600 for 2 years now, so i would say don't spend the money on a new card yet.

    What operating system are you running? Have you ever reinstalled the system from scratch.. eg reinstall the O/S and drivers and programs?

    Goto the control panel --> add/remove programs and uninstall the "nvidia display driver" Reboot and then install the other drivers.

    Installing 1 driver over another generally works ok, but since you're already having problems you mide as well eliminate as many variables as possible when attempting fixes.

    either get a new video card, or reinstall windows, there's nothing else you could try ...IMO (well you already tried the drivers and etc.)
