    I recently got my new eVGA Geforce 6600GT AGP 8x video card from newegg, plugged it in, and it works like a charm. So, I test out FarCry, Call of Duty muiltiplayer, MotoGP 2 and some other games and they all worked great. Then, out of nowhere, I am at my friends with my computer for lanning party, we played Call of Duty multiplayer first, everything is fine. Then, after some level changes, we turned off our systems, later that day, came back, booted up, now I cant remember if a popup warned me about the graphics/video/system colors before I started the game up or during the game. But whenever it did, it went back to the desktop with really brightened colors and everythings ugly. Now, everytime I go to play, it tells me the system (cant remember what it says) is fooked up with this game and ask me to click on yes for them to automatically configure everything for me, and I click on no the next time, either way, it dont work, it gets locked up during the game before I get to choose my weapon and results in me having to reboot. I ftp'ed the game to my bros pc the single player patch for no-cd, and tried the game and it warns me before the game the same thing, and locks up in single player.

    Occasionally I network mine, my bros, and my friends hdd's so we can share files.

    I dont know whats wrong, I even uninstalled Call of duty, networked the game back to my pc from my bros, and does the same thing.

    Any ideas? I dont want nobody telling me my vga card is fooked, cuz it did work.

    Thanks.

    Is the card seated in the socket properly? Since you have been moving your pc about it may have come loose. Also is your PSU powerful enough to support the card? Is the molex plugged into the card?

    I have this problem with every card i use (i have 6 computers) its strictly a call of duty thing. exit the game properly and dnt press ALT+TAB or anything that takes you out of the window. when the glariness occurs run the game to the menu then quit. all normal.

    So, I choose set configeration recommended automatically, then exit properly? How does that solve anything, because it locks up during in-game before I can choose my weapon after I select whom I want to be.

    Anything else?

    I'd try a completely fresh install? Cos if you networked the old install to your brothers, then re-installing it with that install networked onto your computer...it's still the original install with possibly messed up config files..right?

    True. Any ideas why FarCry would keep going back to dash most of the time or sometimes locking up when it gets to the first loading image of the main character and his gf before that Ubisoft logo shows up? I did a fresh re-install even after clearing everything before, and it does the same.

    Im thinking about reformatting my pc, but I dont want to go thru everything I did with the drivers and my files for reinstalling everything, too long....

    Any ideas?
