    I got my card yesterday, plugged it in, and installed the DirectX9 and XP drivers required for it to work, I used the ones provided by XFX on the installation disk. Now, I cant get Commandos 3/MotoGP2/ and a demo that came on the installation disc. I installed Commandos 3, clicked on the icon to open it, and it just makes a black screen flicking once and goes back to the main windows screen. MotoGP2 restarts everytime I click on the 'Play' button, and the demo gives me a popup saying I dont have enough virtual memory so I should change it and make it lower, but I have a 200gb hdd, 1gb corsair xms ram, and a 256mb 256-bit vga card! What?! And when I go to play, like the first 1 or 2 seconds in the game, it gets all nasty-colored and locks up, meaning I have to restart. Sometimes I get popups when I start up the computer telling me my video card is having problems and if I should send an error report to microsoft, but I click no. Can someone tell me what I should do, because I am freaking out.

    Thanks.

    Get the latest drivers first of all, and then if the problems persist, get in contact with XFX's technical support line.

    When I go to download the latest drivers, what will I save them to to get them over to my new computer? It seems that the latest drivers are like 20 megabytes or so, and I dont see how that can fit onto a floppy, and I dont have any cd-r's anywhere.

    Oh yeah, what kind of drivers am I to get? For the nVidia Geforce 6800GT or Direct X9 or sumthing?

    Thanks.

    save the drivers to your hard drive and run the file after the download, Graphics drivers that is.
