Thanks for your reply. I did try that earlier and the driver
gets loaded. The only difference between that poster and mine was that the driver NEVER defaulted to standard VGA early and after torrentg's "hotfix" which worked out for him, for me however there is a little icon with an exclamation point and the status says code 43 "Windows cannot load the driver". I tried to see whether I got a dud card by installing it in XP x64, and it works flawless with the latest drivers
, so the card is not fritz. I will be running 3DMark to check just in case, but I am confident the problem is with Vista/Windows 7.
Hope that info is sufficient,
