    Are you running any programs like virus scanners or Standford Folding programs? What about your Windows Updates? Are they current? You must disable your onboard video when you have an AGP card installed. Is AGP set as the first video device in the motherboards bios?

    strac27,

    you already asked this question here

    creating multiple threads on the same subject is not only against techSpot rules, but also makes it difficult for people to help you.
