Hi all, I wonder if you guys have an answer for me please, I recently upgraded my graphics card from a geforce 2 mx prophet to a geforce 4 mx 440 (creative) since i upgraded windows xp freezes during games and the only way to get out of it is to reset the pc, My card only had a heatsink and no cooler so i moved to cards from below it so it had room and also put a thermal take silver orb on it so i dont think cooling is an issue. I have tried a clean xp install and drivers from 30.82 right up to 41.x beta. In normal day to day apps use i dont get any lock ups so it looks like a graphics card issue. I have recently installed win 2000 pro and ive only had time to play games for 3 hours (ut2003) and no problems but i really would like to get back to xp if i can. My system specs are below, thanks in advance guys.

Home built.

Athlon XP 1600+
320mb ram 1x256 + 1x64

forgot to mention that its not just ut2003 that locks, medal of honour, rtcw and star wars galactic battlegrounds all do the same...
