I have a STB VELOCITY graphics card, I am using XP PRO with the xp pro driver from the xp disc.

My System shows my driver as NVIDIA RIVA TNT 16mb.
[Version 5.1.2001.0. intregrated RAMDAC]

I visited the NVIDIA website to seek an driver upgrade which gave me two options

geforce tnt2 or riva 128/128x.

STB VELOCITY seems to have been absorbed by NVIDA

which one do I choose?

I dont think it matters which you choose, the latest nvidia driver 52.16 (I think) suits all nvidia cards.

MIKE
Would either of these two option be ok

nVidia drivers are fully backward compatible so you need the latest version.

Follow the menu of type of card and chipset to the downloads section and you won't (hopefully) go wrong.

Ok David first of all i'm not familiar with the STB Velocity card, but if it is using the Nvidia Riva tnt2 drivers it must have an Nvidia chipset. The driver you need is click here and is backwards compatible with all Nvidia chipped cards.

Dont forget to set a restore point, before removing the existing drivers and instaaling the new.

Must hit refresh more often.

thank you for the help, downloading as recommended by you

Did this last week to replace the XP driver. Didn't have any problem. There is no need to remove the XP driver first, but I would create a restore point.

"There is no need to remove the XP driver first"

I disagree nvidia recommend doing so, click here so probably best when it's something so important as your graphics driver.

I am have problems downloading at present, my ISP is stopping me from access most sites at present due to a pipex server fault. how do i create a restore point?
