TOPCAT® the download page says v.4.13.01.4109 (which I already have) released 3-12-2002.

Am I missing something?

i was led to believe its always best to have the card's manufacturers drivers installed - as these are specifically made for your os and card

so the point of nvidia's drivers are.........?

My card is Nvidea!

New nForce Unified Drivers

Here's a list of the changes:

Added nForce2 IGP support

SPDIF on ACI support
Adds support for audio with the ASUS A7N8X Deluxe product

Update: Just from my experience, installing the new IDE driver is a bad idea. There is an option to NOT install it, I suggest going that route. Maybe a few intrepid individuals can figure out why Windows wouldn't boot on my machine with the new IDE drivers....

Are these the new drivers or not? TC.

Seems that they are released by MSI, and add a couple of new tabs to the Nvidia utility program.

click here if you are interested.

Personally, as mine is not an MSI card, I'll stay well clear.

I was always under the impression that nVidia drivers were backward compatible with its range of chipsets.

I updated my 32MB nVidia GeForce2 MX400 card about a month ago and had all sorts of freezing and crashing problems, especially when using ICQ or having several windows open.

I eventually narrowed it down to having enabled and configured the nVidia Desktop Manager.

Disabling it cured all the problems immediately.

Thanks for that. As I don't have a nVidia card I'm not familiar with these driver updates. I do know they have caused confusion in the past, especially with their version numbers, to some users.

One of the reasons I am leaning towards ATI for my next power card. :) TC.
