    well i can not install it !
    it says:
    The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit

    i have GeForce 6800GT from MSI! AGP port!

    I was able to get past that by copying all the .inf files from the 97.19 release. The one w/o the control panel.

    Modified INF with support for more cards and the 8800GTX gts, let me know if this works otherwise im thinking i might need to include the PCIexpress root port driver for 6001

    I dunno. I have seen alot of people having problems with that resolution. I personally am running at 1680x1050 on a dell 2001fpw. Maybe try the file lordobisdian posted?

    Nice try but no winner here :(

    Tried the Setup Program, no device found.

    Tried forcing with Have Disk, I see the card, then I get no software for this OS. Yes I replaced the nvts file with the new one.

    I have a BFG 8800 gtx
    Windows Vista RTM - yes I have a MSDN sub.
