Graphics driver not taking after install...restarts after install

Hi there i am frixing a really old pc with a GA - GF2560 card in works fine but just needs drivers to make the scene more smooth. I have tried two versions 45.23(beta) and 71,83 those are the only two i could get.

The 45.23(beta) is to old it doesn't change a thing

The 71.83 after install my pc restarts so i have to restore it the whole time.

How can i fix this or is there other versions somewhere please...

Thanks....

Hi Core7, At 12 years old the GFX card as become "legacy" and has far as I know no driver is available later than the 71.83 ,I will have a search for you but don't hold out for anything

Edit this is the latest driver http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/winxp_2k_71.89.html that I could find give it a try It's only the win XP version
