    Video Card Maybe?

    When I installed beta 2 of Total Commander (ghisler.com), an explorer replacement, whenever I did major copying, my screen would go totally white, like blank, but the frame of the window still showed.

    When I asked their support, they had me increase the cache to 10 megs. The problem disappeared.

    I get a version of the same thing in Outlook (2003) (fairly often) and WinXP in general at times.

    Is there some type of cache adjust I could make here as well, or am I seeing video card problems?

    I have a NiVIDIA GeForce 440, with 64 megs of ram at present. Do I need a new or different kind of video card? Would that resolve this?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Re: Video Card Maybe?

    Try the following. If it doesn't help, you can easily restore the original setting.
    - Open the Display Properties control panel (for example by right-clicking an empty part of the desktop and selecting Properties from the popup menu).
    - Activate the Settings tab.
    - Click Advanced.
    - Activate the Troubleshoot tab.
    - Drag the Hardware acceleration slider one or two notches to the left.
    - OK your way out.
