Couple of things First - I REALLY appreciate all the help from all of you. Second, I still have the problem but I should explain all the details based on what advise I'm getting.
I have an HP Vectra VL800 2GHz, 256MB, 40GB, XP Pro that came with the NVidia an AGP GeForce2 GTS (32M). I installed the second display adapter which is a PCI Geforce2 MX200(32M).
I have NO problem running milkdrop 1.02 in any mode off the MAIN GTS adapter. I get the error only when selecting the second adapter MX200 from within milkdrop. NOTE: I have already updated my drivers from NVidia to the latest version. In one of my previous posts, I mention the version as 184.108.40.2061 -notice the 2311 at the end. From the Device manager driver properties screen of BOTH display adapters reads version 220.127.116.11 (there it is again) So I know I have thier latest version 23.11 installed on both adapters.
Third - There is no directX install or uninstall for XP, XP comes with directX. What version it has in it, I do not know yet. Again - all is fine on the main, it's the second display adapter that produces the error. All drivers are up to date - now what?
