Er zijn nogal wat mensen die last hebben van chronische vastlopers met hun TNT2 videokaart. Tech-Review had dit ook door, en heeft daarom een handige troubleshooting guide op hun site geplant. Hier heb je een stukkie:
It has come to our attention that a large number of TNT 2 owners have experienced problems running 3D games. The most typical problem being that the computer stalls when a 3D game is opened. Several hundreds of people have no idea why this occurs and have tried everything from formatting their hard drive to trying several different brands of TNT 2 boards. In fact this problem has nothing to do with your Windows setup or driver conflicts for the most part.
Why should any of us purchase a $200 video card if the darn thing is going to crap out on us on our favorite 3D games? We shouldn't! But the problem isn't related to the TNT2 card itself, it's related to your motherboard. That's right folks! Some motherboards, especially those used by OEM manufacturers, are prone to voltage problems with the AGP bus. The TNT 2 cards, for the most part, require the full amount of voltage power supplied by the AGP bus specification. However, some motherboards do not completely support the voltage settings specified by the AGP specifications. This in turn causes a power problem with your video card and motherboard, and results in the stalling of the video game and computer.
