Great driver thanks
Always off for me and smooth as butta...
apparently they do (not everyone), they believe that purging their rig of the old drivers to pave way for the new ones will make their games run twice as fast and look twice as good, then when it doesn't they blame Nvidia. Lol. IIRC it was Nvidia itself that recommended installing over the previous.
Exception: Some people have issues with the previous driver forcing them to remove remnants in the hope that the new one will bring performance bliss.
After Nvidia's recommendation some years back, i always installed over previous drivers. Result= no problems.
Why should they? It ain't broke so why change.
GeForce 310.90 WHQL Driver
I have a Zotac Firestorm Geforce 560 GTX with 2gb of memory. I currently have the 126.96.36.1997 driver installed and have been having a lot of crash to desktop playing SKYRIM. Being a very heavy graphics intensive game I installed the 310.90 driver as NVIDIA's website said that is the latest for my card. I installed it and Windows 7 says there is a problem with it and that it ios disabling it. The driver does not recognize my monitor type and also the highest res I can get to was 1600 x 1200.
I'm glad I had created a restore point before installing the driver.
Any idea why my system would not like the new driver ?
I have an Intel quad 6600 2.4ghz with 3gb of memory.
Thanks for any help.
From what I have been reading the latest patch for Skyrim has been glitchy for some people, that said however, 310.90 has been working fine on my system. Have you tried redownloading the driver or doing a clean install of it?
Thanks for your reply, no not yet.
I was just looking at the NVDIA Experience.
Is it worth using it ?
I just saw I had a typo in my original post. it's a 560 gtx not a 550 gtx
Well problem solved. I did a clean download like you suggested and everything is working.
