I just upgraded to bh6 motherboard with 32mb pc100 ram, celeron 300 with xpert@play 4mb agp card and monster 3d (dx5 installed and all latest drivers). Here is the problem :when I run games I see small squares flashing on the screen or lines show up. I had my monster for a while now and it worked fine and I had my xpert@play card replaced so its new. What can be a problem? motherboard? wrong setting in bios? or is there a problem with this xpert@play vieo card? Is there a program that could check my system and tell me whats causing this. It happens in several games.
Whats wrong?

i believe you don't have a correct video drivers which allows you properly maps the signal under a DOS environment.  pls check the net and see whether there is new drivers for your adaptor.

another cause would be faulty video memory.  however, if you are running Win95 or Win98 and everything runs fine.  video memory is ok.

CD-rom?????what are you talking about. Listen tell me if I run 3dfx game does my 2d card do anything? Does 2d card display any menus in the accelerated games ,because I get those lines and corrupt pictures in game menus.This would tell me if there is a problem with monster or xpert@play.

pls be reminded 3d card gives enhancement to the signal the video card outputs.  hence, they work hand-in-hand.
