Are your drivers correctly installed? Go to nvidia's site and download the latest ones. And yes, if the plugin is not using the right drivers, it won't use the card up to it's potential. Anyway, keep in mind that a geforce 4mx is geforce 2 on steroyds, so you shouldn't spect it to run with everything maxed out and antialiasing :p .

well then if you cant install drivers than PSX emulation is going to be crap unless you use a software plugin...windows drivers have no 3D acceleration.

Computer crashes? Try going into Windows twice. What I mean is once you have installed the drivers, allow it to go into Windows XP and let it hang. Restart and see what happens.

With older Geforce cards, sometimes the newest drivers are unstable and cause crashes. Try installing only the driver that comes with your card, or if you lost it or something, search on google or something for the best driver for that card. With my older Geforce FX, I could only use v.4x.xx, the newest being 6x.xx. Once you find the driver, go to the nvidia site, download driver page, then click on download older drivers or something, then you'll get a huge list of all driver releases. Then click and dl the one you want.

Sometimes the brand that made those cards will have optimised drivers for their own card, like Inno3d or ASUS (I live in HK, you may not be familiar with these - just examples anyway). Go to the site of your brand and dl the optimised drivers if they exist, if not, check troubleshooting or around the site for solutions if possible.
