these drivers are way too problematic...
reverted back to the 182.50 as well!!!
these drivers ****ing suck.
185.68 doesn't seem to work very well with Left 4 Dead, at least for me. I got a large frame rate boost going from 185.68 to 182.50.
finally nhancer 2.5 is out and it works with 185.68, except for the thing that it gives me the sli sli dx10 tabs.
Yea I had to undo all the SLI settigns I did when in Nhancer when I org had SLI 8800GT's and config it for one GTX260.
But since its beta i guess its expected.
AO works for me without a problem, But I go to the game profile it self and not the base profile and turn on AO for that game. In its own profile.
Like I would go to Half life 2 EP 2 profile and turn it on there, and not on the base profile where it forces it for all games. Because it works for me and I dont have your issues when I use it like this.
Haven't taken the time to try these drivers myself but if the nvcpl.dll does not install correctly, can't you just place it in system32 and register it with regsvr32?
That would mean you run:
To uninstall, just run:
regsvr32 /u nvcpl.dll
Might be worth a try.
My system was just recently upgraded. I took the opportunity to go with 185.68 from the get-go. It was a miserable failure. Messed up resolutions, resolutions that would not keep upon a reboot, BSOD etc. Cleaned things up again, went to 182.50... no problems with anything.
Until we get a more stable 185 series driver the 182.50 WHQL release is really the only driver I will consider using. I still have not found a 185 series driver that doesn't crash and/or artifact.
The 185.68 beta drivers seem to be working fine for me in all the games I've tested bar one: GRID, which seems prone to intermittent framerate drops but never so bad as to make the game unplayable. Everything else I've tried seems to work fine though, although I can't say I'm that impressed by the Ambient Occlusion feature as it is barely noticeable in the games I've tested such as GRID, Half-Life 2 and Dead Space. I've not come across any major issues as yet so I'll be keeping these for now.
Nice that nHancer 2.5.0 beta now works with these drivers too, that's one more reason to stick with the 185 drivers.
when i instaklled these drivers i had no nvidia control panel at all
you prolly installed it in safe mode. try reinstalling in normal mode and the CP modul will install
Its a good driver so far, no more black thing in the nvidia logo 3d preview and in other games...
After installing 3dMark Vantage just shows a white screen...
Just went to a multi-monitor setup here, and I'm finding that World In Conflict: Soviet Assault will not use the second monitor like it's supposed to. It tries, but it fails. Don't know if this is a bug in the game or if it's a bug in the drivers.
I'm using a pair of ASUS VK266H 25.5" LCDs running at 1920x1200 @ 60Hz. The two GTX 285s are in SLI, with both LCDs attached to the primary (SLI focus) card.
Anyone seen this problem before?
ever since i got my xfx black edition i have not been able to boot to normal mode. i have to install any driver in safe mode. no matter what driver cleaner or registry checker i use. i just get a black screen in normal mode. its like the standard vga driver is trying to out put to a different non existent monitor
maybe its cause of ur physx dual gpu setup? did u try with only 260gtx?
no thats not a bad idea though i would hate to have to pull out the second card everytime i want to test new drivers. nvidia leaks like 3 a weak. maybe ill just hook up a second vga cable to the other card since my monitor supports both and see if its trying to use it
Issues with windows 7 build 7077, Drivers are crashing the desktop manager. Rollback to 181.71 Windows 7 drivers.
just turn off SLI in NVIDIA CP, you don't have to pull out the cards...how do you think dual GPU owners (9800GX2/4870X2/GTX 295) turn off SLI?
im not running sli. two different cards.
yep these are crap for me. empire total war was a mess and company of heroes tales of valour seemed ok but then just got a crash..
gonna try the 182.50's as ledhed seems to swear by em..
