abit bx6 rev2, intel piii600 at 133Mhz fsb
512mb pc133 ram
soundblaster pci 512
msi geforce 4 mx440 dual head (64mb)
couple of ibm hdd's
and a burner
on games like EA Sports NHL 2002, there are textured backgrounds that flicker in and out from black.
the windows screen saver, 3dmaze (opengl), is very slow
-tried multiple drivers from msi and nvidia
-uninstalled and reinstalled directx
-uninstalled and reinstalled games
-brought fsb back to 100mhz (chipset is actually overclocked at 133mhz)
nothing seems to work.
this all started after a reload. there were no problems before reinstalling windows. i assume this to be some funky direct x issue but i have been unable to resolve it.
comments only please.
