Default Whats with my GF 6600 GT?


Ive got a Sparkle GeForce 6600 GT 128MB, with a SIS based motherboard.
I have the beta patch from Nvidia that should make this work, but while playing games (i mainly play Warcraft 3 TFT, so ill use it as an example) The graphics can stop. It can freeze the screen. Sometimes the music is running and sometimes it isnt.

about 70% of the time it will bring it self out of this freeze in about 10-60 seconds.

the other 30% of the time, the computer will shut down with a blue scrren telling me about a probelem with nivd_4, or similar. sorry i cant remember the files name exatly, but i will post it when i find out.

I was wondering if there ws anything i can do before i declare its faulty.

It has the latest driver from Nvidia, even the beta ones.

I know that SIS and Sparkle are lower quality brands so plz dont tell me this

the thing is, i only got an SIS and Sparkle brands becasue there cheap.

Im only a kid, and are unable to purchase anything else.

Any other help would really be good about seeing if my GF6600GT is really faulty, or its just the mobo.

plz only tell me about my problem, i am unable to try on other mobos.

I think that the blue screen means that there is some kind of compatiblity issue. There also might be a problem with drivers. Try to run lie 3Dmark 05 and see what happens.

Does it happen when u change some kind of setting.

Try to play around with settings and see what happens.
