Question about Nvidia Ti4200 Geforce 4 (128 MB) Graphic Card

Graphics Card Trouble

I recently "wiped" and reloaded my computer. Since then I've been having major trouble with my Nvidia Geforce4 Ti 4200 graphics card. Running Windows XP Pro, and 99% sure that I have the latest driver, I can't, for the life of me, figure out what is wrong with this card. Outside of 3D video games my system works fine, but as soon as I load up any game, the problems begin. There are frequent pauses while playing which are basically second or more lulls in the action. Something like a lag spike although it does it whether or not I'm connected to the internet. To make things worse, the pausing continues indefinitely until I either close the game or my whole computer freezes and must be rebooted. Sometimes I can play a few hours without it completely freezing, sometimes I can merely play a few minutes. I have the latest version of DirectX and pretty much every driver on my system. I use a site called www.driveragent.com to make sure all my drivers are updated. Could then the problem be a conflict of interest between my video card and my motherboard? I don't remember this happening before I reloaded my computer. Somebody please help! Adam

I have an nvidia ti4200 64meg, i had this same problem using an updated driver from nvidia. after much frustration and computer abuse, i found that the issue was actually in the nvidia driver, after unistalling nvidias driver and reloaded the supplied driver that came with my card this problem went away. this seems like the likely solution as you never experienced this before doing a driver update!

This is the latest driver for your video card here!! http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_93.71.html The problem that you are describing sounds like a video card driver issue or a system cooling issue! Also make sure your operating system is fully updated (Windows Update) . Does it only happen with one particular game, or all the games? Also look at how hot your computer is getting! Ensure that your processor is being properly cooled and there is enough ventilation within your system! get back to me if any questions regards, babb

Upgrade from a 64MB nVIVIA GeForce4 Ti4200 graphics card.


This card is really good for an AGP card. It had 512 mb of DDR2 memory.If you are using Photoshop You need to look at upgrading to the max amount you can get into you machine.Photoshop is built to use as much memory as you will allow. I think you can go to 3 gigabyte of standard DDR NOT DDR2. Also, XP has Service Pack 3 now so download that from Microsoft's site. Hope this helps.

Gpu working not getting monitor picture


Is there another type of video output on the card, like S-Video? It could be trying to use the other output as the primary rather than the regular VGA. If this is the case, use nvidia's display utility to manage which output should be the primary.
