Geforce3 TI200 problem
« on: 06-January-03, 15:55:50 »

Im not sure whats causing this. All over my screen, in both Win98 and XP, Im getting thin transparent flickering lines all the way down the screen. It gets worse if I turn the refresh up higher, or play a game.
Ive also had problems with Unreal Tournament 2003 freezing every few seconds in resolutions higher then 640x480, but that may be unrelated.

Ive got a Soyo Dragon motherboard, with an Athlon XP 1800+, 256 megs of ram, 300watt power supply.

Drackwolf,

Try your comp with another monitor and see if it is the vid card or the monitor.  (I do not mean buy another monitor, just hook it up t a friends monitor if you do not have another one around.)

Good Luck,

Richard

Update.

When I swap out to my Geforce2MX, the problem is gone, and everything runs ok. My PSU is a 300watt, 170 combined I believe, but Im not sure thats the problem

Recently, games have started freezing sporadicly in some cases, and just going back to normal a few seconds later, and that doesent occur with the Geforce. The problem with the lines has gotten MUCH worse, theyve become much more noticable on the desktop. If it was a problem with power, wouldent the overall problem stay consistent?

Just an idea try your video card in a friends machine to see if the card is faulty.

Also try setting the voltages to the AGP slot manually they should be around 2.6 / 2.7 Volts.

Hope it helps
