Default Here's a weird one....

First off, my system specs:

AMD Duron 900 w/512MB PC133 SDRAM
GeForceFX 5200 Ultra w/45.23 drivers
52xCD-ROM Drive
LGE GCE-4120 12x8x32 DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive


O.K. Now to the problem. If I use any drivers other than the 45.23s,
(and this includes the WHQL'd 52.16s), whenever I try to run games, the
screen will turn blood red within a few seconds, and the actual game
images are very jagged, with a lot of tearing. Any ideas, suggestions,
etc? (Other than replacing what I already know is a ****ty board and
processor, because that's not an option right now).


TIA,

Bob

Keep the 45.23s. No point in bothering with the buggy 52.16s.
Good Luck!
