    Happened to me few times aswell. It's not this specific new driver I'm afraid, happened on earlier forceware for me. A system reboot always fixed that problem, while game restart didn't.

    I use Logitech G15 (logitech promised REAL Vista drivers, should be here any week) + MX518

    Still fan only works in 100.65. I've tested 101.41, 101.70, 165.01, 158.18 w/o luck. My load temps (100% fan speed) are lower than idle temps with fan on 60%

    I can't get anything that can control fans to work.
    Ntune locks up, riva won't install,expertool doesn't run, atitools won't install correctly either...

    this is with driver signing on or off...

    these drivers are fast!
    R6 Vegas with Max settings(Highest on shadow quality) is the higest boost i ve seen so far.

    here are some comparsions from the old 97.92 drivers with the same settings
    Res 1600*1200 4xAA 16xAF (max graphic settings in the games) Win XP

    STALKER: 32fps-->37fps
    GRAW: 82fps-->90fps
    R6 VEGAS: 52fps-->65fps

    lols - open Nvidia's control panel. At the lower right (or left..) there is a "system information" thing. Press it.

    :)

    nope they dont.
    Nvidia do mention however, that "it will be supported in a future driver". This is a joke already :D

    i can't use nhancer, when it tryes to reimpost previous settings it crashes. I need nhancer because the NVidia Control Panel doesn't add profiles or change existing profiles. What should I do?

    it would definitely seem that nvidia are sticking to their word with these drivers, becuase I haven't seen any real improvment in terms of performance.. they do seem more stable though all around.. hopefully in time the performance will come.
