Default PLEASE HELP ME. Geforce 4

I purchased gforce 4 recently and added it to my computer. I bought it to play a game called guild wars which required it. Well, now Guild wars works but i can't play any of the other games i had downloaded (sim theme park, diablo, etc). When I try to play them either the screen goes black, shrinks to 3/4 of the viewing area or the picture jumps around. Also, I have no sound when playing the game. Anybody experienced anything like this??
Thanks,
James

My guess is you installed the drivers that came with the card... but I might be wrong.

I don't know exactly where to look for the driver version, but if my statement above is true, go to the nvidia site and download the latest drivers.
