NIVIDA 61.77 Drivers

  Completealias 12:45 19 Oct 2004

Downloaded nividas latest drivers (international version), uninstalled the old ones as nividas site instructs. (I have a Geforce FX 5200 XP home with SP2.)

Then installed the new ones, before doing this I shut down norton av and firewall and AVG 6.

Driver seem to install with no problem but after the second restart when i try to open the advance display settings I get a "version mismatch" error message and the settings open up with no nivida tab.

Have emailed nivida but all i've got is a stoney silence.

Any one got any ideas?

The only thing i can suggest is dowload the U.S English version and give that a try.

I installed 61.77 and had a few problems, so rolled back to 61.76 and this was ok. Maybe it's something to do with .76 being windows certicated WHQL, whereas .77, last time I looked, wasn't.

have you also installed the latest directX? (ver 9.0c i think at the moment)

as I understand reading the blurb from the nvidia site, it requires som gubbins that is in 9.0c and not in 9.0b

try the 61.82 beta drivers click here nothing to lose as they're easily uninstalled.
