My video has started crashing on me sometimes after playing any 3d games for awhile. I'll be playing and then all of the sudden my monitor screen will suddenly turn into a grayish mess of colors. My computer doesn't freeze or reboot, it's just the video that crashes. It's also done it while running 3dmark 3001se.
I got a geforce 4 4200 with detonator 44.03 on an nforce 2 mb with 512mb pc2100 and Winxp pro. Any ideas?

other tha that, it sounds like it might very well be a heat problem. Try taking the side cover off your case and blowing on it with a fan. If it works, you know your problem is heat, so install a couple case fans.
Radeon 9500 w/256 bit memory bus @ 367/310
AMD AthlonXP 2000+
I have 5 fans in my case now. Average sytem temp is only
44 C. I swapped out my Geforce with a Radeon 9700 this morning to see if that card was the source of the problem this whole time. I'll post back later to let you know.
