    My 2 cents

    3dm06 163.71 / 163.75
    SM2.0 Score 2580 / 2457
    HDR/SM3.0 Score 2491 / 2434

    And i see that they didn't repair anything so rolling down to 71 ;)

    Well, After finally getting 163.71 to work without the "driver not working error" in Vista 32bit. Thought I would give the 163.75 a shot.

    Well, after two attempts of installing, each time I had two issues with Rivatuner. There was no more fan control, and it wouldn't show the GPU core speed or memory speed in the graphs, but would allow it to overclock. Gpu-z comfirmed this. The mouse seem to lag really bad in games, especially the Crysis beta. The beta just turned in a complete motion blur.

    Went back to the 163.71's, and everything is back to normal. I'm not even going to attemp the XP version.

    Installed 165.76 drivers, was able to play WiC demo at 1600x1200 on High (which includes 2xAA/2xAF) very smoothly on my 320MB GTS. After seeing HardOCP's article, I'm quite relieved.

    That's the only game I tried so far, but up to now I'd say they're keepers.

    I get exact same performance results with 163.75 in F.E.A.R, 3Dmark06 and Oblivion than I got with 163.69 beta. But well, these are quite new bunch of drivers so will keep 'em. Also Rivatuner 2.05 works happily with these.

    I had this same issue , after you install 163.75 go into Riva tuner and look under the first window "Target Adapter" listed in the dropdown menu I had "Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX / Generic PnP Monitor" and my card was listed as having less memory than it has (360 something rather than 768) , I changed that to "Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX / (Default Monitor)" (the other selection in the drop down menu) and all my temps , fans and core speeds are listed again , my card now shows the right ram and the auto fan monitor seems to be working even better for me now.

    Just as a side note I played for the first time this year 2142 on Vista for several hours on a full server without any slowdowns or BF2 errors and at full detail , the performance is clearly better with 2142 and these on my system , gonna try BF2 tonight.

    don't do benchmarks any more , waste of time for me.

    Mine crashes too. These drivers do not fix anything.

    I've found out that on my system the "nvlddmkm stopped responding"
    only happens when I've overclocked my 8800GTX too much.
    When I oc it a bit less then "nvlddmkm stopped responding" doesn't happen on my system at all.

    Also, when I speed up the fan on the 8800GTX cooler with Rivatuner the "nvlddmkm stopped responding" doesn't happen at all.

    So it seems to me the error is oc related!?

    I never OC anything
    the processor temp is about 49-54 C (in the game)
    video: Core 0= 72C; Core 1= 79~81C (SLI in the game), the fan on the video cards all the way up 100%

    this is all Nvidia problem :( still crashes, trying to play HL2:E2 and it gives me 30 min then crash ...

    Intel QX6700 2.66Mhz
    Asus P5N32-E SLI nForce680i
    2*XFX 8800 Ultra SLI 650MHz/2.2GHz (1605MHz DDR3)

    well, a result of ocing is, amongst other things, the temp rise of the gpu.
    I've noticed that as long as I keep the temp of my gpu under 75degrees all is right.
    this probably varies from gpu to gpu.

    so whilst you're not ocing the problem still may be the same.
    if so, it's a bloody shame because it then is a hardware problem (cooling)

    in any case, my bet still is on it not being a driver problem:)
