    my card which i bought from a friend 2 yrs ago is giving me problems when i am playing a game and suddenly it hangs and specks are on the screen. Does anyone know how to correct the prob?
    also who knows how to find the AGP size without opening your com?

    Make sure the cards cooling fan is working and the heatsink isnt clgged with dust. Visual artifacts could also be caused by faulty memory on the card. Have you tried the latest drivers? What do you mean by AGP size?

    are there any other ways to change the prob as there seems to be no prob with the fans. Can it be the aperature size? e.g. 2X, 4X, 8X ?

    The aperature size is the amount of system memory the card can use. You can set it higher(64mb-256mb) but that doesnt sound like your problem. You have an 8x card and the motherboard should have automatically detected it but it can be changed in the BIOS. Can you try the card in another computer?
