    What video driver are you using? If you are using the 8800 drivers from a CD, go to the Nvidia site and download and install the latest driver from there

    You don't mention what your system is... Dell, Gateway, HP or Compaq? I doubt if it is a home built system. We really need to know what your motherboard is. If you give us the computers name and model number we can figure that out
