Geforce 4 troubles

Just got a new MSI Geforce 4400 card, loaded it in with the default MSI drivers and am having problems. I am getting green and pink little squares all over the screen and then my PC locks up. Looks like the anomalies you get when running a card overclocked too high, but it is running at default speed.
I wiped out the MSI drivers, loaded up Detonator 28.32's, but they wouldn't load properly. Wiped them out, went back to the MSI drivers. It seemed to be okay for a few hours, but then I started getting the ping and green blocks again, shortly followed by the system locking up. The graphics board is running at stock speed.

Here's my current setup:
Abit KG-7Raid
Athlon 1400 Mhz
Sound Blaster Audigy
IBM 60GXP 40Mbyte hard disk
512 Mbyte of Crucial DDR266 RAM
Direct X 8.1
Windows ME
400 Watt power supply

Is there something that I missed with the setup on the board? There are a few settings in the bios that pertain to the AGP card, what should they be set to? I just want to make sure that I don't have a defective board before the warranty runs out. Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

have you tried the latest via 4 in 1's? after that I would again attempt to install the dets, that failing install the msi drivers and run dxdiag to see if there are any problems.
