XP and Nvidia

I have ABIT KT7A-Raid m/board and an Athlon XP 1800 and an NVidua GeForce MX 440 on MS XP (no service pack installed yet). The first time I boot the system it starts okay and then after subsequent reboots I either get blank screen after the XP logo's, a message of IRQ not less but equal.....error message or a message that the NVidia driver appears to be messing with the OS and do I want to send MS a report. I have tried all of the drivers available from NVidia including the Detonator ones, the drivers on the video cards cd without luck. When it is up I cant set to anything more than 1024x768 and anything run with detailed graphics craps out. After a couple of reboots gets worse and the only way so far to fix is re-install.

Any suggestions would be appreciated
is this a pci or agp card?

if it is a pci card, compare the pci slot to the table in your motherboard manual to ensure that there are no irq conflicts with that device and any others.

if it is AGP....I'd recommend going through the geforce faq.


that is the most comprehensive guide to geforce cards that I have ever read.
