NVIDIA New Graphics Driver Causing Problems In Games.
« on: January 01, 2008, 02:02:12 PM »
The  driver i just installed is;

ForceWare Release 169 WHQL
Version: 169.21
Release Date: 19.12.2007
Operating System: Windows XP, Windows XP Media Center Edition

My Graphics card is : NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS (x2) (SLI)
-
*Ever since i installed this new driver after about 5 seconds after starting up a game, the textures go insane and the game freezes up...

*Ive tried Warcraft 3  and World of Warcraft and the same thing happend on both, it must be related to the driver because the problems only came since.

*Before i installed then new driver everything was running fine apart from the ocassional texture glitch. I really don't know what i can do to resolve this issue, this is the most updated driver from nvidia's website

Did you delete the old drivers before installing the new ones? If not, try deleting them and reinstalling. Also, why not just install the old drivers again?

Did exactly what you said to do, deleted the old drivers then reinstalled the new one and the games are running smooth again. I feel like an idiot for not deleting the old ones now.
 :P

thanks for the advice.

    There might be an issue with the new drivers. Was there a reason you stopped using the old drivers?

    I'd go back to using the old drivers for now if there wasn't an issue with them. 'New driver' does not always mean better.

      Try doing a driver rollback on the new driver.  It's possible that won't work since you deleted the old one before installing the new one, but it's worth a shot.  If not, I'd try going to Nvidia's website and looking to see if they have a link for older drivers.
