Hi Jim,Are you sure you are installing the XP specific driver? I strongly recommend the 41.09 Detonator driver, available at nvidia.com. The v40 series offer a host of features and increased stability over earlier v30's.

If all you did was use the WinXP CD to upgrate to WinXP then that is the problem. You need to download and install the updated drivers for your controller chips, graphics adapter, sound, NICs, modem, and other peripherals on your computer.I would also recommend you update to WinXP SP1, unless your version of WinXP is already SP1 (check in Device Manager General Tab page), and any pre-SP2 updates from Microsoft Update Website.
