I have this 3d card.. nvidia tnt2 32mb M64 pro. In many games, the screen freezes and a lot of dots appears of many colors. I downloaded the latest drivers of nvidia many times, opengl too, sound card and motherboard... but it doesnt works. i thing that could be something in my bios, but i dont know anything about bios... my games runs if i play in software mode... the games that freezes for exemple are Half Life and Alien VS Predator. Other thing, i dont play the game, before i start it, when i loads, that happens my problem. Can someone halp me please?

Yes, it could be the BIOS settings. Can you run Half Life with D3D or is it a OpenGL only problem?
Do you have a K6 proccessor?

When your computer starts up do you probably have the opportunity to enter the BIOS settings. The interesting stuff is the AGP settings. If you decide to change something would I recommend that you write down what you do so you can change back.

if you had a videocard installed previously
to your tnt2 you may have to format c: and reinstall your OS to get open gl to work as
when i installed my ge fierce 2mx after uninstalling a tnt 1 i could run d3d but not open gl even after trying t0 reinstalling various driver versi0ns.
i tryed every thing renaming nv0pengl.dll
and placing in games direct0ry
i dont kn0w why this occurs but the 0nly answer to my pr0blem was to reinstall windows and every thing w0rked great after that. if y0u choose t0 reinstall d0 it in this 0rder:
after installing wind0ws install y0ur latest m0therboard drivers (ie:Via 4in1 driver f0r via ap0ll0 chipset based motherb0ards)
then directx8 then make sure y0u change y0ur adapter t0 primary pci display adapter vga then install y0ur latest drivers f0r vide0card make sure y0u enable
agp fastwrite(if you have it there) in y0ur bi0s after installing drivers.
0nly update y0ur bi0s if there are fixes f0r pr0blems y0u are having and if y0ur n0t sure
ab0ut updating y0ur bi0s get s0me 0ne else y0u can trust t0 d0 it f0r y0u 0r you might end up with an expensive frisby.
