A couple of questions.

Is this a new card for you, or have you had it for some time?
Assuming it's been in your rig working fine until now, I'd take the following steps.


First, I'd uninstall and re-install the video drivers. If that doesn't do it, re-seat the card in the AGP slot. If still no go, I'd stop wasting time troublshooting, and RMA the card if it's still under warrantly, or simply buy a new toy to replace it.
