Ive got a PC Chips M810LMR motherboard, an MSI GeForce 4 420MX, and Windows XP. Whenever I install my graphics card drivers and attempt to close a window it just crashes and i have to disable the drivers in order to use my PC. When I had Win98 it was fine but since I've upgraded to XP it no longer works. I've tried the latest drivers for my graphics card but it doesn't help. Any help for fixing the problem or suggestions for similar graphics i could get would be greatly appreciated.

Which version M810 do you have? The version number can be found on the board next to the PS2 keyboard and mouse connectors.

I talked to a couple techs about this problem and they agree that it sounds like you need to load the SiS AGP mini gart driver for Windows XP and perhaps take a look at cmos setup and enable 32bit mode for your hard drive if you haven't done so already.

It worked for about 3 weeks but now i'm getting another problem, it keeps going to black screen in windows when the card is enabled. I went onto cmos to check things out and it now says that the share memory size is N/A instead of 64mb, I'm completely stumped, ive tried loading optimal and best performance settings with no luck. Please help! :-)

If you are using the GeForce card the Shared memory would be N/A as this refers to the onboard Graphics sharing the RAM. You were not to clear on which graphics you are attempting to use.

I'm still attempting to use my GeForce card, in cmos it asks whether I want onboard AGP or PCI, I try PCI but it still crashes all the time unless I disable the card. Could it be something as simple as re-installing the drivers?

Drivers For the AGP port first than video card drivers.
