Thanks for the update Shawn
Your welcome Joe.
Can anyone help? Just rebuilt PC with a Q6600 from a E6600 and swapped motherboard from a Evga 650i Ultra to a Asus P5N32-E SLI but still using BFG 8800 GTS 512mb OC. I have Vista 64 Ultimate installed and cannot install the beta 169.44's although 2 days ago i could do using the same Vista!
The error is:
You are running a 32 bit version of Nvidia uninstaller on a 64 bit system (Binary type I386).
Wrong version of installer.
Then it says:
Setup detected that the operating system in use is not Windows Vista [64 bit]. This setup program are designed to run only on Windows Vista [64 bit]. The installation will be terminated.
Now, i have UAC turned off - could this be it? The drivers i am using are the 169.25 internationals downloaded from UK siteand the 169.44 beta is downloaded from the same Uk site.
Any help would be appreciated.
It sounds like you were lucky enough to find a bug in the beta 169.44 version. I would just stick with the 169.25 until the other one is realeased as a non beta version.
Many thanks for the reply and i think you're right regarding the bug and sticking with 169.25 drivers as there's no way i'm rebuilding the PC again just so i can put beta drivers in!
New Nvidia Forceware series 9 driver version 174.53 released 3-18-08
Ever since I installed SP1 on vista64 Ultimate, things have been a bit flaky in graphics response(using nVidia 169.25). So I tried 169.44 beta and it seems to have cured the problems. Not tried the latest beta since this one seems to work - I'll quit while I'm ahead!
New 174.74 Nvidia beta driver version released for 6,7,8 and 9 series.
Well I RMA'd my Gigabyte 8800GT OC 512 cos it kept freezing and black screening. I was using 169.25.
I've been looking at what driver to use when I get a replacement and notice that NVidia site now says get SP1 rather than "hotfix"
So has anyone tried 174.44 with an 8800GT? and/or does SP1 sort out the BSOD/driver issues?
Actually it'll be just my luck if Overclockers tell me there's nothing wrong with my card and I'll have to pay to get it back.
Perils of being being a (technically stupid) early adopter I suppose.
