    probs with geforce 4 mx420

    I recently bought this video card and it appeared to be working fine (installed properly and stuff) until i ran any program that used direct3d or openGL. After about 30 seconds my computer simply freezes. HELP!

    Sounds like a driver problem perhaps -- do you get a blue screen at all??

    You could try heading o ver to www.nvidia.com and grabbing the latest drivers, give em a whirl and report back

    i have a geforce 4 MX 420, and i get no problems with OpenGl progs (played SOF2, JK2, MOH:AA, Cstrike) or directx.
    Worth bearing in mind that Gf 4 420 doesn't fully support directx, but that doesn't mean it wont play directx games, and mine plays opengl gams just fine.
    i use the latest drivers for my card.

    check you've got them installed too.
