Default GeForce2 MX400 64MB - poor scrolling

Hi,

I recently installed a GeForce2 MX400 64MB , in place of a 32MB GeForce2
MX200.
Now i notice when I scroll page up/down , on the net, I get a ripple effect
on screen. It's at it's worst with WIN TV operating (always on top) .
Is it normal to get some degradation ?
How do I optimise bios (etc) setting to reduce (or even eliminate ) the
effect.

TIA
Denis

Windows98? WindowsXP?

Why put in a mx400? (unless it was $10)

Win98SE

When you have a vid card worth $1 , a $10 is a major upgrade

Thanks .
I have latest VIA drivers. latest nVidea drivers, running at 1024 x 768 @
60HZ . That seems within spec for my dell 17" crt
Bios is the latest from Abit.

So... does it work any worse or better on other games?

Yes, $10.
(FWIW, I am thinking of an MX440 for a simialr really cheap deal, just
looking to see if I should or not, to improve on an obsolete 1st gen
AGP card, with a very slim budget, I could afford to lose that until
I can afford a current card, which I was figuring an FX5200)

GT:

The mx440 is no slouch : I run Chaintech versions in 2 of my boxes, and
consider the cards very reliable. Most recent, I got an FX5200 to push a
new VX900 LCD under WinME & it does fine ( NEEDS DX_9 installed !!!).

Ok ! problem solved. I moved my cards around in the PCI slots to
redistriibute use of IRQs.

The modem card was sharing with the graphics card - once I eliminated that
, it solved the problem.

Thanks to all for the input/comments

Regards

Denis
