I have an Nvidia Geforce AGP card. I have just recently updated the drivers to try and resolve a game crashing issue (Jedi Knight:JA). During gameplay the game crashed the system (XP pro) yet again...but this time I cannot boot into the system normally or in safe mode to remove the drivers.:uhoh: What next?!:confused: I am only suspecting the videocard drivers because of an issue brought up about Nvidia drivers and WinXP. The main problem getting to the startup screen and then crashing and rebooting over and over... which is what is happening.

Does it crash with other games too? Also, does it crash all the time?

Sorry I edited after your reply.

"I am only suspecting the videocard drivers because of an issue brought up about Nvidia drivers and WinXP. The main problem is getting to the startup screen and then crashing and rebooting over and over... which is what is happening." Nope, only on JA. I don't have any other games installed right now.

Its probably a driver problem then, if it crashes all the time. Does your card support the game? It should I think since its not a needy game. Update the driver again from the nvidia site. Also, make sure you get direct x 9c.

That is my secondary problem right now.:(

The main problem is I can't get back into the system normally or in safe mode to correct the problem.

Thanks for the link!

It seems a lot of people are having the same problem (with different games). But all have the combination of a Nvidia Geforce card and XP(NTFS). In the meantime I have reinstalled XP and am back into my system. We'll see how it goes from there....

Sorry to bump this but I found my problem. The soundcard...

A soundblaster 5.1 platinum card is somehow conflicting with my NVIDIA GeForceFX card. Maybe the EAX config or something, updated drivers didn't help. Same problem on both Windows XP and 98. This is a custom built comp so hardware conflicts are inevitable. I uninstalled the card and went back to the mobo soundcard, everything runs fine. If anyone else has these video problems during gaming always check your soundcard too. It has to channel as much info during gaming secondary to the video card. I hope that this could help someone else. Thanks!
