I have just upgraded to a NVIDIA geforce 4 Ti 4200 AGP8X. The problem I have got is that every time I try to run a dos game the screen freezes every time it gets graphical, the computer is still responsive, as I can still use Ctrl, Alt, Delete. I am using abandon loader and dosbox. Does anybody know if I can downgrade my graphics card temporarily, or any other software that supports dos emulation using my graphics card

Well, try not using DosBox and see if it works, then look for GeForce Drivers for DOS or something.

the connectix virtual pc work a treat, it did not need any additional driver, I had tried true dos before, and setting up cdrom drivers, mouse drivers, etc, then juggling memory was a pain in the rear. The only thing virtual pc didn't have was edit, for editing the config.sys, but i just copied that from windows xp. Thanks for you help
