After formatting my hard drives and re-installing Windows XP, restoring my BIOS factory defaults, and re-installing all my drivers including the new direct X 9b, I am still unable to play games.  The computer is running fast, looking great, the games load up to the menus, but when the games load, they are unplayable by freezing.  Is it possible my NVIDIA GeForce 4 is shot?  If it were, wouldn't my normal computer usage show effects? Could it be a processor issue?  If it were, wouldn't that effect my normal computing as well?  What could have happened from flawless gaming to this?  Any help is appreciated!
