Hi all , just spent the last hour downloading the above Which was 12.2 mb, only to find that when I clicked on the GEforce tab in properties settings, it gave me a "Catastrophic failure" and a blank window!??
Have had to roll back the driver and all seems ok. Just wondered if anybody else has had the same or was it just a corrupt downlaod!!!!!?????
Running winxp home ed sp1.
Ho hum :>) bretsky.............

I had a load of problems when I loaded it so got rid.Can't remember what they were but I,m not going to load it again to find out.

I downloaded it this morning and had no probs at all. But on the other hand, I can't see any difference at all. A bit of a waste of time I think.

Probably spyware from Mr. G!

Don't update G-card drivers via Windows Update use nvidia instead.

As Powerless says avoid the windows update and use this

click here

for XP and 2K,and its only 8.7mb,wonder what the other 3.5mb on the windows update is for?

Hi all thanx for the replies, nice to know I'm not the only one with update woes, I get the impression from the replies it's a waste of time with this update so will give it the thumbs down.
Thanx again to all:>) bretsky

I think in fute I will take Powerless's good advice and only update from NVIDIA's site.

The nVidia updates will be the very latest - some of Windows Update website's so called manufacturers' updates are well out of date.

Just downloaded driver 52.16 from the nVidia website and installed successfully - no problems at all. I fully agree with Stuartli's comments.
