Nvidia driver update 162.18

  Cesare 15:31 30 Jul 2007

It seems strange that from Version 93/71 for FX series Cards, now Nvidia gives me Forceware 162.18. Is this a Beta ? The last time I tried to update from 93.71 to 94/24 I had a hell of a lot of trouble, so I am a little wary now.Has anyone tried this one please ?

i did the other night and it screwed up my pc to tv function and i could not sort it with all the setting options so i had to system restore to get rid.

Could be worth reading this excellent guide:

There's also one for ATi cards.

I decided to risk it and uninstall Nvidia Driver 93/71 and try 162.18. It seems some one is holding me back because nothing happens when I try and uninstall from ADD/REMOVE. I even tried via cCleaner/Tools but no luck.

Are you sure you have the correct nVidia driver as there are several new versions at present:

Scroll down for the latest or on the home page:

Each driver listed details the cards for which it applies if you go to the download page.

Looking at the list for XP there is

nvidia 32bit forceware 163.14 and
nvidia forceware 163.14.

Why has one got the 32bit in it.
