My Graphics card has recently gone on the fritz. I really don't know what happened. First I thought my DirectX files were corrupted, so I reinstalled those. No luck. Then I noticed OpenGL was also corrupted. So I tried reinstalling my video drivers. No Luck. So, I'm pretty sure by now that it's my video card that's going crazy. I tried turning my AGP mode to 4x, in a crazy attempt. No luck. I can buy another one, but I don't want to unless I'm absolutly sure it's my card.
Here are the example screenies:
I was lucky to get those to work. With large games, DirectX just shows a black screen, and OpenGL freezes the computer for 15 seconds, then unfreezes it, then another 15 secs...
This is also happening in my Gentoo Linux install. Same problems with OpenGL.
I have a NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4200, running on a AMD Athlon XP 2500+ with a gig of RAM.
Your help is greatly appreciated,
