    For a test uninstall the video card from device manager, update changes in hardware and allow Windows XP to install its own drivers.

    hey thanks bunches

    i kinda messed up with the last reply dint add all in info i wanted .. but any how what i did finnaly wus take back the radeon x300 and got another called gforce 7300 gs from lead tek.its not a big ole gameing card but helps with photos plenty and heck i can run flat out.. doom and pretty much any thing else plays just fine with reasonable settings.. the mother board i am using for that card is MSI k9vgm-v with a am2 socket and sempron 3200 processrrr. usuall 1gig ram so .. it isnt locking up or running slow .. hope that info can help any one else..
    still baffles me.. though i dont have time to be testing cards and such so ill just write it off as a bad card or incapatible.?? ;0)

    it could very well be a software problem. if possible, put the card into another system to test it. a local PC repair shop or PC technician can test it for you.
