Specs would be size and name brand of the video card. Like specs in pc language means like the "fine print" or the "details" about it.

To find out the details or specs about your video card go to start hit run and type dxdiag.

Then when it loads hit "display" To your left when that page loads tell us like size of it and name brand.

The video card I read in some cases can cause this so if you can give us any details on it we can further the research.

Thanks

PS here is a helpful link:

Its similar to your problem. Infact if you type what you gave us at google you will find pages of stuff like this.

It could well be then according to your testing. Have you tried to play a game on it and see what happenes? I think maybe its just some settings that might be wrong here.

I just thought of something else. What version of direct x do you have? If you need to test your video card on way is to go to start/run/type DXDIAG/hit ok

When that screen comes up go to DISPLAY tab at the top and click it.

Take a look at this screenshot for help on what you should look for and what to do.

Please look to the right and make sure all direct X features are enabled.

If not click the "enable" buttons.

Then to test the video card and direct x look to the right and click on both of the test buttons.

Its will go through a few tests. After done at the bottom where it says notes you can see the results if all tests work there will be nothing wrong there.

I hope this helps you some. Please tell me the results.

Thanks

hey there
i ran dxdiag and did those two tests without failure

In the notes box i got these:

Notes:
The file nvdisp.drv is not digitally signed, which means that it has not been tested by Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL). Current drivers tested for a WHQL logo are only available on Windows ME, Windows 2000, and Windows XP. New Windows 98 drivers are no longer tested for WHQL logos.
DirectDraw test results: All tests were successful.
Direct3D 7 test results: All tests were successful.
Direct3D 8 test results: All tests were successful.
Direct3D 9 test results: All tests were successful.

and the AGP texture acceleration box is disabled and ghosted out.

any ideas???????

did this problem only occur after installing the nvidia card ?

have u thought of installing a substitute card (temporarily) to see if the same error messages come up ?

I've found that with an older system you are best to stick with the drivers that came with the card rather than getting the latest drivers. The latest drivers work best with the latest systems. Do you still have the original drivers?

i should have!!!
i just downgraded the drivers to some 44.03 driver, which i found on some other site , and they said it was one of the best for the MX440 version, and i installed it and all that, but it still shuts (flash, internet, explorer and notepad) down. ill try and put it back to the old drivers ( if i can find em')
Do you have to uninstall older drivers first?
My fonts on google, ebay and yahoo are all larger! does this have anything to do with my problem?
Thanks alot everybody

Uninstall the drivers from add/remove programs and then uninstall the video adapter in device manager. Then reboot and when Windows finds the Adapter click cancel and when it finishes booting you would install the driver if its an .exe.
