I have a 128MEG FX 5500 i downloaded the latest drivers but when i install them i get all sorts of problems for example the "n4_dsp" driver will crash some games i have ie Rome-Total War and Medal of Honour-Pacific assault,yet when i insatll the default drivers from the CD that came with card everythings fine....any ideas.
As AndySD has said the latest Nvidia drivers may cause some problems, I had a Gigabyte ATI card that had some problems with the ATI drivers but worked perfectly with the Gigabyte ones. Only suggestion I can offer is try the Omega drivers and see if they're any better, if not you may have to stick with your graphics card manufacturers drivers. click here
Keeping the graphics drivers up to date is a gaming thing.....Often there are significant imrovements in performance for specific games and fixes to be had for others in the latest versions.So even though they may work, seeking out the latest driver is often advantageous.
dazza39 I would really recommend you give Omega drivers a try ,but if you want Nvidia ones this is probably the best place to go click here as they frequently post the most up to date versions from Nvidia themselves and also a good number of drivers that are used by graphics card manufacturers.
try downloading the drivers from the manufacturers website. i had the same problem with my Msi fx5200 last week. first i downloaded the drivers from the nvidia website which resulted in fifa 2005 being jumpy with lines in it but then uninstalled them and downloaded them from the msi website. now eveythings fine. hope that helps
