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,

    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
