That graphics card is a bit old so it might be due to that. Have you updated your graphics card drivers.

Well, that was a well informed and completely unbiased opinion. Your vid card is crap because it's old. Nvidia makes perfectly fine video cards. Choosing between Ati and Nvidia is like choosing between Chevy, Ford, and Dodge.

Ah, I see you have the same problem as me. I have a 64mb geForce 2, the MX440, and the same problem. I do believe it might have come around with the new video drivers... It used to go away when I'd click "ready" after it was done loading; now it stays that way ever since I started overclocking... I'd recommend trying the older drivers, or just simply saying "heck, it's fun to look at anywho" :D

Hmm, your opinion is not required since this is a help forum and it is not at all helpful. I have seen GF2's and GF4MX's all running fine.

It's definately a driver problem Supa Sniper, try rolling back to the 56.72 drivers, they were good for the GF4MX series. New features in the new (6000 series) vidcards have required a driver rewrite that is causing problems with older vidcards, but you don't have to use the latest drivers if you have an old vid card.
