Windows 7: Nvidia 7 Series + Win 7 x32 driver issues?

Nvidia 7 Series + Win 7 x32 driver issues?

Has anyone seen or read anything about the Win 7/Vista drivers for Nvidia 7 series not working properly?

I have a thread over in General where we were trying to determine the cause of a graphics glitch where once Win 7 x32 was booted the screen would glitch out to where it looked like multi-colored ladders with jumbled colors all across the screen.

After running several tests and trying different things, I'm fairly certain its a problem with the nvidia 7 series drivers themselves and win 7 x32.

Trying a clean install to x64 and the drivers for the 7 series for it to see if that changes anything.

Any confirmations or disaffirmations regarding these drivers would be appreciated.

Win 7 RTM 7600 Ultimate 64-bit

I run a 7900 GT in my wife's desktop with Ultimate x64. No problems like you mention using the 190.38 WHQL drivers.

On my 7600GS AGP card, the DVI output was rendered unusable during OS installation when control was handed over to the driver). However the secondary display on VGA was fine.

Reverting to an older driver fixed the problem on that machine. It did make the installation interesting though.
