PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Win XP Home SP2
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model: NVidia GeForce 5700LE



Hello,
I've had my new computer for about 2 months now and I've noticed when I play games online that there's a period where the game just hangs. Now, I've attributed it to my wireless network, but my brother has played the same games in the same servers without a hanging period.
I'm using an AMD 64 3400+ Processor and I have the standard Win XP Home Driver, but I noticed there was an XP Pro driver for 64-bit drivers, should I be using that driver and not the XP Home driver?

Thanks,
Chris.

NO!
Although you may have a 64bit CPU, your Operating System is still 32bit. Your videocard is also still 32bit! So you need a 32bit driver for your videocard, and you can get it from the main nvidia site: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_71.89.html

Any next drivers you just get from http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp .. Graphics Driver, GeForce and TNT2, Windows 2000 & XP.

Please read and follow the Driver installation hints, especially about uninstalling the old drivers. Oh and reboot the system when it asks for it before installing the new drivers.

Then again, without you telling what kind of system your brother has, there's no way for us to say what could be better, but I will throw it at his videocard. Your LE card is lacking in memory, GPU speed and lots of other things.
