Oh, I like gaming on Seven. When it works

My Auzentech sound card drivers have a nasty habit of either BSODing or app crashing with an un-killable sound loop. It just got tiresome after a few months. I just wanted to game without crashing all the time

are you sure its your s/c drivers causing it? out of curiosity did you try compat mode when installing it, latest drivers for vista ect? you more than likely did i just like this o/s soo much i feel like a saint trying to advertise how good his church is. lmao

does any one know when the final release will be out? i just cant wait to throw it on my laptop but i dont wanna put beta on there as my g/f and i use it for net surfing and all sorts, this desktop setup is my pride and joy and i am the only one that is allowed to touch it. lol

are there any links or guides to performance tweaking 7 (not like it needs it) like there are for vista, eg: disabling certain processors like readyboost and things like that that are enabled at startup to decrease mem usage/ increase performance?

Yes. Yes I am. I have trouble-shooted this out the ying yang

Every single game has caused a BSOD or sound loop. Sometimes both. Some games just crash much quicker than others. The only game I could play for hours was Fallout 3 and even that sporadically crashed. Same games under Vista, no problems.


I've had sound trouble in builds 6801, 6956 and 7000. I know which driver it is, but can do nothing about it. It's a known problem to Auzentech and unfortunately the ETA for 7 beta drivers will be around June according to Auzentech support. I'm on the list to beta test the drivers, but I don't expect them any before then

If you don't mind, can you tell me where you found 182.06 drivers for Windows 7? I need the 64-bit.

COD 4:MW, COD:WaW, Crysis and Crysis Warhead are all working fine for me at the moment, but I'll take every frame per second I can get.

Thanks!

If you dont already know Windows 7 uses pretty much all Vista compatible drivers.

i take it its for your 8800GT in your specs?

NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search

just select 8 series, 8800GT, Windows Vista 64-bit
click Search

and 182.06 should be the first driver at the top, tick the "I have read and agree to the terms and conditions" then click Download Now.

if you have any probs while installing you may need to enable compatibility mode and tick the box that says run as administrator on the install file. Thats IF you have any probs.

soz if you already knew all the details on how to do it.

Rick.

I guessed as much, but I also guessed it wouldn't let me install a driver that wasn't signed for windows 7.

Glad to know it will work. Thanks.
