Ohhh! They mention a fix on corrupt display coming back from hibernating/sleep!!! I would so love it if that fixed my issue (though its not *quite* as they describe...perhaps itll still fix it!)

Thanks!

Edit: I attached a modded INF for x86 file so you can install it on all nvidia cards (I think..). Installed it on my GO 7800 GTX with it ;) Install through device manager

Just extract the installer (using winrar or similar program) and overwrite the nv_disp.inf with the one in this zip

nv_disp.zip

Any idea why GeForce FX 5200 isn't supported anymore? All drivers which came out this year don't support this card, although it's compatible with Vista (even Aero).

It probably still works with a modded INF or something. But Nvidia seem to have deprecated support for those cards (especially with Aero) so they can focus on their newer offerings.

Swapping to desktop seems to work, yet more problems created with BF 2142. Eventually will work.

These gave me a 10 fps gain with AA off in CS:Source on my 6600 GT. Yet, with AA set to 2x I saw no gain over any of the other previous Vista drivers. Still a long way from my XP benchmarks.

Secure Desktop switch seems a bit better, but still shows some flickering that I don't see on my laptop (Intel 950).

If you use the INF i posted above, it includes these cards in it, so it *should* work on your 5200's:

NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_0320.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200"

NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_0321.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra"

NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_0322.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 "

NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_0323.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200LE "

NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_0323.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200LE"

NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_0329.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 (MAC)"

The above continues to happen randomly whilst playing Titan Quest Immortal Throne / Titan Quest (versions 1.30).

When are Nvidia going to get their act together :s

To make that go-away Reinstall the drivers. I find the drivers somehow corrupt themselves every so often. Requireing a reinstallation of the files. After that I'm good for a few days/weeks.

Worse still is my children are getting fed up with the Sims 2 crashing as well. I'm starting to miss x64 XP, it never crashed, ever.

Trying to remain patient. It just seems to be taking forever for Nvidia to overcome this.

Thing is, I only just installed these new 101.41 drivers (checks watch) about 50 minutes ago :s

100.65 Beta drivers are out now (20th Feb), these are a little old now. Although I'm still on 100.30. Do you think the newest ones will work alright on my Go 7600 with the modded INF file?
