Yesterday I recieved online update on win xp and after that my gfx card went all GAY. First I taught it was just this machine having problem but then my other PCs started to recieve the update and same problem on all.
Its a Nvida Gforce4 MX 420 , 64mb card.
After install when I log on my character kinda runs in slowmotion.
As in I get small pauses in my movements.
I tried to download latest version of the drivers but that didnt help.
Also tried with role back of the driver and that dont seem to work either.
Installed direct x9b. Still No good.

Hmm.. post this in the Technical forum instead but to talk about the thread i haven't noticed any new windows update? Maybe it was an evil virus, try download the nvidia drivers and uninstall the ones u had before

not much help, but i think you have learnt the lesson - dont get driver updates off MS ;)

not sure why deleting drivers and system restore didnt help :(
