This was happening BEFORE i formatted and re-installed Windows.
Tried re-installing both Nvidia drivers and the ASUS ones - problem still occurs.
Having reformatted with a fresh Windows XP Pro install and fresh drivers...
If you have a motherboard with a via chipset which i assume you do, there are three possible fixes. option 1 is the best one but is not always an option
1. Get a new motherboard with a different chipset
2. Install Windows 98 SE, which doesnt use VIAs drivers
3. In your device manager, find the Via AGP to CPU driver in the system devices tree. Update the driver to PCI to CPU driver. This will stop the loop, but will cause a performance hit ranging from 5%-20% depending on your configuration. This is because it disables AGP texturing acceleration and reduces bandwidth.
The issue is caused by Driver problems with VIA and VIA is incabable of fixing. Good Luck it took me over a year to fix my own problems so i hop this helps you
So Far Im using via chipset with a Geforce ti4600 with the gfx driver and dx9 for about a month now and no probs yet. The conflict is between the mobo and the AGP card and one of them must go. Have you done any overclocking on the AGP?
