    "The drivers have some very cool new options for PhysX..."

    What options are these? In the control panel, the only option I see is "enable" or "Disable" GPU supported PhysX

    Not much of a cool option there. What am I missing?

    By the way, am I the only one who never uses driver cleaner? I always just install right on top of the old drivers and NEVER have had a problem.

    Checking driver version, I see that all my driver files are listed as the correct 180.42

    Thanks!

    For information:
    I found the temp folder for Vista:
    [USER]\AppData\Local\Temp\WZSE0.TMP .

    You can copy this folder to another location before clicking on the 'error' message, which closes installer and deletes files.
    When done, copy this one of these infs (appropriate) to this copied folder, overwriting old inf.

    bf2 and 2142 are still borked on my rig :(

    back to the old drivers again.

    edit*

    found a thread on the nvidia forums, turned off ingame AA and left the new profile i made (bf2142pace.exe) on 16x and all is good

    dunno about bf2 as the profiles not got the overrride option :(

    Using Vista 64, fan control is broke on RT, EVGA Precision and Sys Tools so have to go back to 178.24. Come on Nvidia, how about some QC for a change? Another crap release like those 20.08 chipset drivers...

    Working fine here... nice little increase in Vantage to boot.

    For those complaining that the fan control isn't working in RT, go to "Low-level system tweaks" and check the "Enable low-level fan control" checkbox.

    Using Vista 64-bit here never had any problems and doing the same as you.
    A lot of people posting problems with their drivers and such.
    Sometimes i feel i'm the only one with so little problems :banana:


    I do find it strange that the option to switch between the physx card and gpu is gone?
    Nvidia gave up the support on the physx card?
