RIVA TNT2 problem
some games ive tried to play such as RTCW, Blitzkrieg, etc. all fail to work. This is with the same video card I have used for 2 years.
Wat happens is I go into the game, then all of a sudden the monitor goes into standby mode, all screen is blank. from green light to yellow light. but i hear the game music come on, i click around, sure enuf i get into a mission and hear units/characters respond to clicks. So I am sure the game is running smoothly. To make sure, I had alt-tab ed, and checked task manager, it was running. I closed all virus scanners, firewalls and other applications running.
I frustrated and dun know wat to do.
This has happen with a number of games, and over a period of a year.
Here are my specs:
1000 mhz intel p3
32mb. NVidia Riva TNT2 model 64/64 pro
(Plz do not instruct me to buy a new video card, I am strapped for cash. And do not tell me to update/change my driver bcuz ive done that, and it did not, worse even was it screwed my whole system over, causing me to reformat.)
Plz help me!!!

You can pick up a GF2ultra or better for nothing hardly.
If I were u I would look for a good used GF3.
Or maybe a radeon 8500 or better.
Here is a Radeon 9100 for 65 bucks and free shipping. :)
Or a refurbed GF4 Ti4200 for 66. Great deal here. :)
Here are all there refurbed cards.
Yes, we're not telling you to get the best of the best. Anything will do. Hell, you can get a brand new GF2MX from Asus @ newegg for I think less than $30.
Check it out
You could have a GF2MX/400 64MB for $37 shipped, or the 32MB for $32 shipped. ****, they'll even give you a free t-shirt.
We tell you this because it sounds like you've got a few problems with your card. From the sound of it, you don't have another one sitting around to try either.
does the box of the game say hardware TL is required? even if so, cant his cpu emulate TL anyway? and $30 for a geforce2mx is a bad deal, you can get em off ebay for like $15 or so. Heck I would just get a geforce3 ti200 for like $50, its far more powerful and has dx8. If you get a job or do chores, you should earn the money in a week or so
You are way better checking forums before you buy on Ebay. I have gotten burned to many times with computer hardware. :mad: I do agree that you can do better than $30 dollars for that card.
edit: check this out:
geforce2 Ti for 30 bucks. not bad.
1. System requirements
Pentium II 366 MHz
64 MB RAM
DirectX compatible graphics card with 8 MB
