Default GeForce FX 5950 Ultra

I hope this is the correct forum. I'll move if necessary.

We purchased the GeForce FX 5950 Ultra sometime last year, but didn't use it at that time because we were told it would void the warranty on our computer. The original card that came with the computer has recently failed, and since the computer warranty is no longer an issue, we installed the 5950.

When I try to play EQII, I get this strobe light flickering effect, simulated tears, strange polygon shapes.

Googling the issue, I realize this was a common problem and fixed by using a downgraded driver. However this hasn't worked for me.

The driver versions I've tried are as follows:
40.41
44.03
45.23
53.03
53.04
61.77
66.93

Currently I have the 45.23 installed, having reinstalled it again to play with the various game option settings, but still the same results.

I'm ignorant about internal computer components and drivers, but I do know enough to uninstall previous versions before installing new ones, so that's not the problem. There's got to be something else and I'm hoping someone here can help me figure it out.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your replies.

Sincerely,
LisaDarln
