FYI... Nvidia VGA drivers 197.13...

I've experienced system lockups when the system returns from Monitor Off or Sleep states using the new Nvidia 197.13 version GeForce Vga drivers with an Asus/NVidia GeForce 8400 GS video card and Windows 7 x86.

Reverting to the 196.21 version seems to have fixed the problem....

The 197.16's work fine for me.

For notebooks, I think.


There are Beta 197.25's and WHQL 197.13's for desktops.

We're on different video cards... it might be specific to the 8400gs series.
We're also on different OSs... it might be specific to 32bit X86...

I also updated my HTPC which is on XP 32bit and it works fine on 197.16.

I didn't get lock-ups but I did get a performance decrease. So i've also stuck with the 196.21's as for newer drivers they perform the best for my system.
