known problem with GeForce4MX?
is there a known problem with the GeForce 4MX series?
I experience a weirdness that I think is a heated issue (literally).
everything works perfectly, until ... well after a few hours X crashes totally with lots of Vertical blue lines that switch color every second in a recurrent scheme... reset is in order.
this problem didn't occur until I switched video card.
I first had a GeForce 2MX with no problems, except for burnt out TV-OUT, so I needed a new card.
I have had a replacement card (the exact same card), with exactly the same problem.
it seems that this only happens when the room is heated, and I noticed that the cooling plate is smaller on the GeForce4MX than on the GeForce 2MX, I though it might be a sort of design flaw that the card can't stand a little heat...
but just in case, I'd like to know if it could be driver related, don't have a windows to test it on or something similar... (i'm still using the 4363 driver)
in short what i'm asking for is, if anyone had any similar problems (vertical blue lines & crashing) with a similar card...
thanks for any help

Well, is your vid card being properly cooled?? Is the heatsink hot... I mean hot to the touch.
Does the heatsink have a fan??
Is the air temp inside of the case hot, moving hot air across the heatsink does not help much.
As for the only weird issues I had, I had to flash the bios for the video card before I could get it to work properly with the Nvidia drivers.

also check you PSU can hack it
some older 200/250W PSU appear to not be able to hack the newer Nvidia cards on top of CPUs Fans drives etc.
