Nvidia Forceware 94.24 Problems

  Jake_027 18:46 07 Jun 2007


Tried updating to this from 93.71 earlier today on my XP Pro SP2 desktop (1.2GHZ Athlon, 768MB RAM, 120GB HDD, Geforce MX 440) but when it came to installing it said something about no nvidia hardware detected on the computer and aborted. I unistalled previous drivers (93.71), ran CCleaner to remove old reg entries, rebooted and tried again with exactly the same problem. I then tried putting 93.71 back on and it worked no problem. The PC is working fine as are the graphics, but I'm curious to know why 94.24 didn't work. Has anyone else had problems, or have nvidia ended driver support for the 440 series?

Thanks in advance

If it aint broke don't fix it, sometimes updates are put out to resolve specific probs, if your PC and graphics are working fine there is no need to update...

i think it was for 6 series and above the nvida forum said problems of earlier cards not recognised.
