    Are you sure you have the correct drivers installed? Drivers are the problem 70% of the time. Try reinstalling em and see if that helps.

    make sure your card is seated correctly, also make sure that no components are damaged, and try searching up your problem, although it does sound like a driver problem. When did this start ocurring?

    From the topic "Video Cards and OC'ing" did you or are you wanting to?
    If it was oc'ed that could be part of the problem...

    neway all i did was jacked up my swap memory to about 3GB in my C: drive (where CS:S is installed) fixed the problem.. however.. it seems like u have a good 1gb of ram which is enough.. maybe your computer is not being cooled down properly.. i agree with zephead..

    also the power supply could be a problem too..

    if u know ur PSU watt.. then check the website n see if its enuf =]

    See if any of that helps could just not be getting enough power, or not enough swap space available.

    can also try setting agp mode to x4 in bios and see what happens
    I know, I know, you will now say “AGPx4, that isn’t why I bought the card”. If I understand correctly, AGPx8 isn’t really a standard yet, so there are bound to be problems. Just set it to x4 for now, eventually, board manufacturers and gfx card manufacturers will solve those problems. x4 should be enough to play games.
