anyone have a xp download link?
or too early for that
Update: Uninstalled Drivers, since i got like 4 different blue screens on different games. All of them related to nv*.* files.
Rolled back to 259.96.
Exactly! It's the first time ever I get BSOD on this damn PC. Not good.
Also it completely ****ed up with my aero.. my aero was completely gone from my PC!
They can't be official betas from Nvidia. They're just awful.
sorry some are having issue ,i have yet to have any problems in L4D1+2 BFBC2 Mafia or COH.Everything works perfectly and game play feels noticeably smoother .Lets hope the WHQL or BETA (last i heard was a BETA was promised next week not a WHQL) is more stable for you all
i keep getting sound loops in TF2, it was fine with 259.47 or 259.32; L4d2 is ok, only TF2.. im going back to older driver, not sure which yet
These drivers may be the rebirth of BC2 for me :O
What program is this that shows the info at the top right of the screen?
Just tried these drivers, and Crysis seems like it's gained some FPS, Metro 2033 lost a few FPS, and Mafia 2 seems smoother and with better utilization on my dedicated GTS 250 PhysX card..
Definitely a step in the right direction, so can't wait for the official release next week :banana:
if im not mistaken its the msi afterburner
confirmed msi afterburner
Do these drivers fix the fan speed hardware polling problem?
In which you would get stuttering proportional to hardware polling period if you had a program like Precision or Afterburner reading the speed of the card's fan?
Like it is discussed here:
I just got to know about this problem, as I was still on 197 drivers because I was still looking for alternatives to nHancer.
EDIT: Meh, I guess it doesn't matter as long as fan speed doesn't show in OSD.
Bad drivers , i just got a new GTX480 and my DVI to HDMI adapter going to my 46'' HD TV does not work :3eyes: , no signal. I tried in my 24''Monitor DVI and it works , DiRT2 Crashes , blue screens , youtube and flashplayer freezes , unstable. I went back to 258.96WHQL and all problems are gone and now using again my 46'' HD TV . Bad experience ill pass on this ones. Not recommended.
Mabye you should try them again chispy?
Cause sounds like u had a bad install :S
That's what I was thinking. Things can sometimes mess up during an install. Try again and see if it happens again.
Nah I'm having the same thing. BSOD and had a youtube crash. I never ever got any of these my pc :3eyes:
control panel crashes immediately after opening it
L4D2 crashes after intro video, with error message.
"Engine error, game could not load ui"
Seriously I wouldn't recommended these drivers. Waaaaaaay too many crashes, and I'm not the only one. We don't even know where the hell they come from. It has serious weird low level driver crashes. (aero not working anymore, youtube crash, Amnesia crashed with severe critical driver access error, BSOD)
Remove the damn links from this thread. It's the very first time I'm totally against a driver.
Does nhancer work with these?
Get good GPU utilization in BFBC2: around 70%. Gets to the 90% only when FPS are very high. I take it the reason is when CPU isn't bottlenecking perhaps.
L4D2 works fine. No more SLI stuttering in last stage of Parish.
No, since the way profiles are handled has changed since 2xx drivers. Gotta wait for a new nHancer release. Meanwhile I'm using Nvidia Inspector and Geforce_SLI_Profile_Tool.exe
