Graphics Problem

I recently bought a Inno3d GFX 5600 and i plugged it into my mobo...(MSI 745Ultra MS-6561)
Drivers installed fine, Windows ran w/o problems.. Desktop display wuz ok... However, upon opening Battlefield 1942, the login screen turned red and kept hanging even with detonator 52.16 installed.
Furthermore, whilst playing call of duty, the game will hang and freeze..
Tried removing my PCI cards, changing the AGP aperture, resolving IRQ conflicts but none seems to work.. Even got a brand new Elsa Gladiac 534(GFX5200) to test it but the graphical objects seemed pixellated and wrongly drawn
Am running on a GF2 MX 420 now.. BF1942 runs with minor glitches (sometimes on big maps there is a complete loss of ground textures) but call of duty runs sweetly. Am at my wits end..

There is a problem with the new nvidia driver and battlefield 1942.  I think this was an unforseen thing for Nvidia.  You can you the old drivers for the card, they will work fine.  So you will need to use the 45. something version.  here is a link to it

this should solve your problem.  At least I hope.

hopefully they come out with a new driver soon that will work better.  I always like to keep up with drivers, but I can not go without battlefield.
