Are you using the driver version on the CD included with the card, or the latest drivers available online?

Who manufactures the card? If you have older video drivers still installed check add/remove programs to make sure they are uninstalled before installing the newer ones.

OK its solved. The problem is the via drivers. I have to run my system without the via drivers installed.

I'm finding my Kyro2 to be very strange in XinXP. I have to reinstall the drivers every 3 weeks, or performance starts to get horrible. I don't think Hercules has got them quite right. But they work fine for me the rest of the time.
