  1. I have an old Diamond 550 AGP card on my son's computer, but I'm running windows XP now. All his game crash now too.

    I check on Nvidia site and all the drivers for it are for Windows 98 and below. DO i have to get a new video card and/or go back to 98 ?

    No, you could use Detonator 21.xx for 2k, it should work too.

    Or you could just buy a newer video card - a hundred bucks will get you something up to date and pretty decent for the time being...
