finally sorted with xp i had always uninstalled the old driver first before install of the new one. got this one to work by reinstall of old driver then loading new driver over the top.

not sure if this is a vista thing or just my pc playing up a little.

when i used nvid drivers, i always had games lock ups unless they were (very) cleanly installed, see how you go i guess.
cant remember how i did it now but there is a registry command that forces vista to see only a standard vga adapter and stops it trying to ply it's own dodgy drivers as well as the nvidia ones.
i use xg drivers now as the nvidia ones always seem to bog vista down i think they are being blamed for a high percentage of vista crashes.
i will be going ati when they release the new model (g50 ddr4) as they seem to let nvid run with the 8800 but watch out for the next ati line.
