Thanks for the suggestions.
I must say that in the last two days the problems became more frequent: in
fact I wasn't able to pass the login screen of Windows XP (as soon as I
typed the password, the system rebooted and the monitor went into standby
mode even during post - I had to turn it off for a few minutes)
I finally tried the video card on a second pc (with a differen motherboard)
using Windows 98 and it resulted in the same sympthoms (reset and monitor
in standby) just after showing the desktop, even if less systematically -
eg. one or two hangs on ten tests, but maybe it depends from the different
I tried a second video card in my pc and tested it for a couple of hours
and it seemed to be stable.
As a last test I plugged my Geforce and Windows crashed again.
Now I'm wondering if my Geforce was damaged "itself" or by another pc
component, like wrong voltages (even if Asusprobe says all is ok) or faulty
agp slot or something else...
thanks and bye!
