Looks like the card could be overheating, has memory or voltage problems.

Have you checked that the cooling fan on the card?

A friend of mine had a similar card that did similar things, unless you ran it without any drivers at all.

I would say that the card has had it, I'm afraid.

The best drivers for that card, performance and stability wise are the 44.03 Omega Modified Drivers for Win2K/XP

Omega 44.03s. Your card is a Geforce 2, which is why older drivers actually give the best performance (directX 8.1). Those drivers don't support DirectX 9 or higher though. But yea, the ones your using now should be fine too.

Make sure it has air flow and is not overheating. It does however look like it is toast.

Is it AGP?

There are plenty of cheap cards that will do the job.

How much do you want to spend on a new card?

MX 4000 is the problem all together id ditch that card and get something else and not worry about it. sorry to be rude but MX series /puke

or if you are on a budget

Newegg.com - ZOGIS ZO68LE-DAGP GeForce 6800LE 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card - Desktop Graphics

eWiz.com EVGA GeForce 6200 256MB TV-out/DVI/2H AGP Video Card

That 6800 is the exact card I was thinking. Nice performance/price point.

In my old Gateway 500X system P4 2.4Ghz @ 2.66Ghz using CPUFSB (My first computer, 2001) I had an old Nvidia Geforce4 MX440! The only games it ran well were RTCW...LOL
I did upgrade to a Shader 2.0 card though which performed much better being the ATi 9550 256mb GDDR2 256bit AGP card...
With this card (and some overclocking on it) I was able to even play FEAR on it!
Although I did add a 80mm cooling fan to the passive heatsink to keep it cool.
(Red fan blowing on the Graphics card & Soundblaster card on the bottom of the case)

Btw, I still have this old system in a box in the garage and it still works just fine...LOL

Yea never buy MX if your broke go 9800 or FX series. I think even the 5200 fx PCI GFX will out perform that MX and you can usually find them for around 25 bucks

EDIT

Asus 128mb AGP GeForce FX5200 DVI VGA S-Video V9520 - eBay (item 250234593804 end time Apr-14-08 19:41:51 PDT)

wow my guess was right on the price :P

MX series make me cry. They're *almost* as good as cards that state "Now support extreme resolution gaming of 800x600 at a staggering 10FPS! ~(Tested in RTCW)".

As for the card itself, it's toast i'd say, in fact, see if you can make an MX4000 sandwich with them, always a tasty option if you like that kinda stuff.

I've purchased at least 3 Sapphire Radeon 9600 Pros from newegg.com and they will play most games up to 2006. Like Far Cry, Battlefield 1942/vietnam. They are decent cards for $60.
