    1. This one was posted by UNWINDER on NVIDIA forums:

    "That's an internal issue of all currently available 190.xx series.

    Problem background:
    Since 190.xx series NVIDIA driver's internal resource manager is trying to precache thermal sensors information in the registry during the first startup after installation. This mechanism doesn't seem to work fine yet, under some conditions sensor detection and precaching algorithm can fail and store incorrect sensor type information in the registry causing temperatures to disappear till the ForceWare re-installation.

    Temporary solution:

    Until the problem is not fixed by NVIDIA, there are still some temporary tricks allowing to solve it. First, you may just perform complete Foreware re-install, this will also cause precached thermal sensor information to be removed from the registry and to be re-detected by ForceWare on the next start. Second, you may manually remove corrupted thermal sensor information from the registry and this way cause the ForceWare to re-detect it on the next reboot. To do it open regedit then search and delete all instances of RmThermalProviderInfo and RmThermalProviderNum entries in the registry. Then reboot

    Will work 100%.

    Tested with Crysis, GRID, NFS Shift, CODWAW2, Dirt 2 - all working fine
    The most notible difference from 19*.** drivers being CODWAW2 framerates gone up dramatically
    Will keep these over 195.81 which i was using previously

    PS Had to use copy of nvapps.xml from previous driver to allow ambient occlusion in CODWAW2

    yes i believe that it has already been mentioned that the 64bit version link works


    ok how about the 32bit?
    can someone upload THAT version so all us 32bit people can test and see if it fixes stutter in bf2 and 2142?

    thanks

    i looked over this thread again.

    it appears no one has ever got to get the 32bit drivers yet.

    i was thinking the link was working at one time and then got broke or the file got removed it now appears to me it was never working therefore the file for (x86) was never there in the first place???

    if im wrong please tell me or post it so we can all grab it.

    thanks

    has "always" been dead.


    i mean i went to http://shop.lenovo.com/us/notebooks and was searching for the drivers there thinking it might have a good 32bit driver but they have so many models to choose from i couldnt find the one with the
    in them.

    if there is a x86 driver this is where it originated....i looked for about an hour on ebay and google to find the exact model with those vcards in them so i could cross refrence it to the drivers but with no luck.

    I also am using 188.22 x86.
    i have tried at least 7 different drivers with bf2142 and that means 7 different times it has to "optimize shaders" which takes forever let alone all the driver uninstall restarts and install restarts...etc...

    those benchmarks on post #3 of this thread look really good BUT im taking that those are for the x64 versions since there is no x86

    i wonder if the x86 (if there is one) will be as fast as the x64 in post #3 in this thread.

    you mentioned nvnews but i thought the people at laptopvideo2go were the ones who found this new set of 188.25s on the levon laptop section?
    idk
