SEVEN x64
 
 

gonna give these a trail today, i don't expect too much from these new drivers anymore, they seem to release a new one whenever they find a bug or glitch in a games performance...

i'd much rather wait 3-4 months & see some real improvements......

Total flop for my 7600GS - ended up with a pale grey taskbar and an inferior resolution as max. possible so reverted to what WU provided.

I'm wondering if there is something in my setup that is preventing drivers installing correctly from a regular download as against WU.

Hi Peter,

I haven't had any problems installing this version. You might see if using Compatibility Mode with Vista selected may allow them to install better.

Cheers, downloading Now!

No problems here yet. Am going to try a game & media center.

Tried a game and media center. Both OK. The 18.22 whql driver also cleared the problem with black a screen replacing the theme, after using media center !

I will say, this cleared up some issues I was having but I'm still having others.

I tried Compatibility Mode, I even tried installing as Administrator - still the same wrong max resolution, pale grey taskbar and no nVidia Control Panel.

This is really baffling me as I never usually have any issues installing device drivers.

181.22 installed OK on Vista and on both my XP Pro's but I'm still stuck with 179.23 in Windows 7, not that I'm complaining about that, at least it works.
