Yeap! I've been havin some trouble with my TNT2 model 64 under WIN XP. When I used WIN ME, I had no problems.
The problem i have is that Windows recognize the card, but somehow dont "activate it"... i dont know, its like i dont have a TNT2, instead a common VGA card. I CANT PLAY ANYTHING!
I downloaded the lates XP drivers, I've tried the solutions from Windows Help... but NOTHING!

It sound like you didnt install the driver. Just go to display control panel and then settings, and then advanced, and then adapter, and then change it.

I have the same problem. I have a Tyan s1854, Celeron 466(overclocked to 525, 75mhz FSB),V770 ultra graphics card, 6X DVD(from my old Compaq 5822). Im running XP. When i let XP installed its own drivers for graphics card, My dvd plays but graphics is slow(35mps). when i installed Detonator XP drivers, graphics double(60mps) but dvd is choppy. What gives? Detonator XP are XP drivers but they dont let me play dvds. im lost.

Hmmm, I installed XP on a TNT2 card without any probs. It recognized it and installed the proper driver. I did however go download the most current NVidia driver anyway. Installed in and things have been fine.
