Hi! I am having problems with my graphic card, or so i think? Any help would be appriciated.

A couple of weeks ago my old computer finaly gave up on me so i decited to buy some new parts and instal them manualy. It all went well untill i instaled drivers for my graphic card, which is nvidia 6600gt. The graphic card is the only thing that i didnt replace and is the same as it was in my old computer. The thing is i have had the same problem before with this card. The same screen blinking and freezing as i am experiencing now. I searched the web and i found the post that solved my problem. I had to switch something off or disable it and then it was ok. I mean, the card was faulty and i couldnt play games no more, but i could use my computer for normal activities that didnt involve 3d acceleration (I could play age of empires 2). This was some time ago so naturaly i dont remember what i did or where i found that information.

I tried disabling 3d acceleration on my card using dxdiag but when i reboted, nothing has changed. I tried disabling some stuff in my nvidia control panel but i dont know what to disable, what to leave?




Using:
intel core2duo e7500 2,93
asus p5ql pro motherboard
2gb ram ddr2
nvidia geforce 6600gt 128mb

operating system: win xp sp3


edit: i found my old post on BC, but i didnt sovle the problem here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/226642/computer-shutting-down-screen-blinking/

I don't know how it is now days here on BC but as i remember, i always got answered in less then 2 days, even if the answer was not helping me.

Anyways, after many hours of searching the web i managed to fix it myself. For all those that will encounter this problem. Right click on your desktop - properties - settings - advanced - troubleshoot - and set the hardware acceleration to zero. That's it!

It wasn't that much of a deal but it still needed many hours spent on searching for the answer that many of us don't have.



Thanks anyway. You can close the topic.

I know how this things go and i know you don't have much of it. Still, concedering my problem, i get the feeling that not much was done to help me.

Dont get me wrong. I am grateful for BC and guys like u, but in this case i just cant help feeling like that.
