Question MSI Geforce 4 problems

I recently replaced my GeForce 3 with an MSI Geforce4 Ti4600.
Now, programs that require acceleration always lock up after a minute or so of playing. Here are my system specs:

AMD Thunderbird 1.4Ghz 266 fsb
ASUS A7M266 w/ BIOS rev. 1007
2 sticks of 256MB Crucial PC2100 DDR SDRAM
MSI GeForce4 Ti4600
Pioneer 16x DVD-ROM
Verbatim 32x/12x/40x CD-RW
Western Digital 40GB HD
Zoom Fax Modem
Intel Etherfast 10/100
400 watt power supply
Win 98 SE with AMD AGP miniport

I have tried two different nVIDIA drivers:
27.50 (included with card)
30.82 (lastest as of this post)

I'm ready to put the old card back in and get a refund for this new one, but that's frustrating. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have plenty of cooling in there (CPU rarely crests 55 C)

I never had stability problems with my old card.

I had the same problem with this card(well kinda, i have the 4400)
I figured out that it wont really work properly with the nvidia reference drivers. Try the ones that came with it or some newer ones from MSI's site. Remember to remove the old drivers before installing new ones. Also check the MSI Clock tab in display properties, and make sure its the right speed for your card. Mine somehow managed to set itself to 600+ mhz GPU, and obviously nothing worked right.
