NIVIDA 61.77 Drivers

Downloaded nividas latest drivers (international version), uninstalled the old ones as nividas site instructs. (I have a Geforce FX 5200 XP home with SP2.)

Then installed the new ones, before doing this I shut down norton av and firewall and AVG 6.

Driver seem to install with no problem but after the second restart when i try to open the advance display settings I get a "version mismatch" error message and the settings open up with no nivida tab.

Have emailed nivida but all i've got is a stoney silence.

Any one got any ideas?

The only thing i can suggest is dowload the U.S English version and give that a try.

I installed 61.77 and had a few problems, so rolled back to 61.76 and this was ok. Maybe it's something to do with .76 being windows certicated WHQL, whereas .77, last time I looked, wasn't.

have you also installed the latest directX? (ver 9.0c i think at the moment)

as I understand reading the blurb from the nvidia site, it requires som gubbins that is in 9.0c and not in 9.0b
