STB MPACT! 4MB AGP graphics accelerator problem.
Posted on 2004-09-23
I have a gateway G6-350 with a STB MPACT! 4MB AGP graphics accelerator (STB Nitro) card on a MP440BX motherboard which shipped with Win 98.( Pentium II 350 MHz cpu, 256 SD-RAM, 45GB hard drive space) I have recently installed Win XP Home. The graphics are now rubbish with jerky DVD playback. I seem to be operating some low level graphics.
However when I try to load a disc supplied by Gateway (Mpact Mediaware 4MB AGP graphics accelerator software Gateway 7502836) install shield starts and then encounters a problem and quits. ( I have reloaded this successfully several times when running Win 98 and DVD played fine!)
Should I expect this card, or the motherboard, to work with Win XP? Any ideas what's going on?
