Windows 7: Windows 7 Nvidia Display driver

11 Jan 2009   #21


OK, if *all* your games are hanging, then it sounds like your video card is overpowering your CPU - nVidia drivers (the non WDDM anyway) will put the cad in a low power draw mode since 1.75.xx and when you run your game all of a sudden it tries to jump up in power by readjusting all the clocks back to rated speeds - which is a major power draw.

I'd check another card and/or check that card in another OS again....

If it is not related to the card in anyway, Then I'd suggest a fresh install of Windows 7....

Windows 7 Beta

My CPU? Do you mean my PSU? That's not it - solid PSU.

Maybe a wipe versus an upgrade. I wiped all of the drivers, started with the WDDM drivers, and then the nVidia-provided drivers on their web site. No go.

Yeah, fingers flying faster than the brain then - I meant PSU - but if it isn't your PSU and it isn't the drivers, I'd check out the card itself then....

Something somewhere ain't right....

I *do* get a better WEI with WDDM drivers, but I get a better frame rate in GTA:IV with the 181 driver - so I think you can guess which one wins

Have you tried reinstalling WOW from scratch?

That is great. GTA IV crashes within 5 minutes of playing on my machine
Asus m2n-sli
evga 9800gtx sli
wddm1.1 drivers.

When I had 8600gt sli game still crashed but usually recoved. I will try NVIDIAs latest drivers and if that doesn't work then its probably 470W PSU.

(Update) I installed latest Nvidia windows 7 drivers and GTA IV stopped crashing

Welcome to the last 3 posters. Now I'm not tryin to be ugly or anything but if you'd start your own thread it makes it easier to help 1 at a time. thanks. @Robiduff Sometime with the laptop video cards you need to modify the .inf file to get thm to work properly using the laatest driver for your card from Nvidi a Then by following this sites instructions on the mod you should have a fully working driver NVIDIA MobilityModder -
