nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX - drivers

  ZootHornRollo 22:53 25 Mar 2007

I have encountered a problem with the card - it won't play the game STALKER. I have not updated the drivers since buying my PC in January - Vista shows them as version
NVidia's site lists several newer ones available - has anyone tried them and which should I go for - it lists US English and international (ie UK English presumably) versions but I have no idea which to go for?

is there any way of getting automatic updates for drivers?

Not that I know off but maybe others will help. I would like to get this game, will it run on my system?

Is Stalker compatible with Vista anyway do you know?

Just looked here click here;techinfo and it is meant to be Vista compatible so answered my own question.
I would update the drivers and see what happens.

Rob_25_Wales yes as you're well above the minimum specs.

Vista driver support for the 8800 has been a bit flaky thus far. Be interested to hear how you get on.

Kate B I know the driver is a Beta but was under the impression that the problem was with SLI and if there is only one card it worked ok.
Is this not the case?

The game manufacturer (THQ) suggested I download the beta driver from nvidia - version 101.41 . I did that and installed it but my PC then refused to start at all and I had to use system restore to go back to the original driver.
I did not uninstall the original drivers (as it said I should)as it warned that this would lead to the permanent removal of drivers / registry info etc. and I did not want to risk this. Would system restore overcome this? I am very reluctant to do something that could be irrevocable - HELP!!
