New Nvidia drivers

Recommended Posts

Hi allAbout 3hours ago I removed and cleaned nvidia 91-47 drivers and installed 93-71that have had FSX added to their profile list,Re install went well with no problems,3D mark 05 check about right,Call of duty,FarCry,Doom3,Battle field 2 all ran as normal,But FSX started to play up,In the end I rolled back to 91-47 but the damage was done,Why I dont know I may have been the few tweeks I added But I had to remove the sim and reinstall,To put it right,No more tweaks for the time been,I hope the new drivers work for the rest of you.Good night all,Rex

I installed and...Horrible!That's Nvidia Bug not Nvidia driver!How a company such Nvidia can publish that thing?Did they test it for a minute?...So my default memory speed for this driver is 2,5 Ghz!..:-lol

Wow, I am glad I didn't install the new drivers last night when I downloaded them. I just don't know what to do now. I use 92.91 and they are 99% ok. I guess I will just wait and see what the nVidia community reports.

I dont understand i had no problems with the driver .And reinstall the sim ?? for a driver change ?? But i find it very hard to find a Nvidia driver that can handle the AA settings .BestLennart

Is there a clear method as far as setting preferences within FSX or from within Nvidia as far as AA and anisotropy? Do you let the app control or do you change settings from Nvidia? And if you do, what settings in FSX?

And>if you do, what settings in FSX?It depends on the profile they have created in the new drivers. You must select what settings you want in the "manage 3d settings". They can either be global settings or profile oriented. I currently am using Xtreme Systems 92.91 drivers and have had no problems. Depending on you graphics card I would suggest keeping you profiles to application controlled. To the OP, did you use driver cleaner pro after the un-install of the 91.47 drivers. If you didn't, from now on make sure you run DC Pro in safe mode to clear off all nvida's crap before you install the new set of drivers.ScottMy Rig:AMD x2 4800AsRock 939 Dual Sata 22 Gig OCZ Platnium Evga 7950 GX2Pc P&C 510 SliCreative X-Fi Plat.

Hi i found that there is a huge differance in fps . On my system !!! if a uncheck AA in FSX and set it in the "new" nvidia control panel. AA Nvidia and FS there is magic in that combination !!

that as far as perf. application controlled is better? Doesn't that run the risk of under-utilizing the GPU?

Sorry but these drivers work fine for me and as for the incorrect memory speed, that is a bug noted in the release notes if anyone bothers to read them.

Hi Scott,Without the risk of sounding stupid, i'm using 77.77 for my 256mb 6800GT on both FS9 and FSX. Both run really well. In fact i'm more than happy with FSX performance.My question is....Are there any benefits for me to upgrade my drivers, being as my card is quite old in gfx card terms ? I heard that generally after a while of drivers, the newer versions don't / aren't written with older cards in mind...The age old addage comes to mind - 'if it ain't broke - don't fix it' but i don't want to miss out either so to speak....Thanks for your advice.RegardsEddyNorth Wales - UK

Eddy,Your exactly right. After time, espically with a 6800GT (AGP) im assuming, nvida will stop releasing updates for a card that isnt in production anymore. I had a LedTek 6800GT AGP and used a "8" series driver for it with FSX. Granite the performance was minimal compared to my 7950Gx2 but it still performed well. I could be wrong, but off the top of my head i believe the drivers i was using with my 6800Gt were the forceware 81.94 or 81.98's whql. Hope this helps, its' been awhile since i ran an AGP GPU. On another note, check your AGP aperature rate as well. There are a few articles here that explain where you want to set that rate based on your systems RAM.BTW.... these new drivers work GREAT on my system. No problems at all.Here are all the fixes with the drives, except for the clock frequencies:Resolved Issues for 32-bit Operating SystemsSingle-GPU Issues Resolved

After correctly installing the new 93.71 drivers (using DC Pro etc.), I discovered a major problem.....I disabled Anti-Aliasing from within FSX and enabled it using the Nvidia driver controls (AA 4X option).The sim runs fine until you end a flight (or mission). Then, instead of returning to the 'options' screen (e.g. choose another free flight, mission etc), the screen goes black and everything 'hangs'. Only way forward from there is to reboot the computer!Restoring AA to the sim and resetting the driver to 'application controlled' solves the problem.Your results may vary, of course.Toni.(GeForce TI4400 graphics card)

Yeah, there's something a bit odd with these drivers that seems to make FSX a bit flaky on my system too. Installed using the usual method of: uninstall old, run DC Pro, install new, remove display lines from the FSX. cfg to force the game to recognise the new card (not sure if this is still needed in FSX, but I do it anyway) then boot FSX. Reset display preferences from the settings menu, then select one of my previously-saved flights which function with the earlier 91.47 drivers (do my `soak testing` on this particular flight and had the game running smooth for 16 hours non-stop, so there is nothing wrong with the .flt file).Game loading screen gets to 75%, then black screen and CTD with a G3D.dll error message. Tracked the problem to the default.xml file but even replacing the (default) default.xml with a saved clean copy won't let the game boot. I have to make a change to the tree or building volume tweak in the FSX.cfg file before it will load. Then I can fly for around ten or fifteen minutes before the black screen/CTD/error message crops up again.Rolled back to the 91.47's and all is well again.Even with WHQL drivers, YMMV!Allcott

gentlemen, a tiny addition to this thread, perhaps it will help somebodyi was punching myself in the face continuously for switching to nvidia after years with ati, precisely because of the erratic driver upgrade/reinstall behaviour, until i discovered that due to unnecessarily restrictive permissions uninstallers and cleaners are unable to remove some nvidia settings from the registrynow if i want to play with a new driver i uninstall the old, run the cleaner, then right-click:HKLMSoftwareNVIDIA CorporationHKCUSoftwareNVIDIA CorporationHKCUSoftwareNVIDIA nvCpl Containergive myself full privileges and delete them before i install a new driver. never had a problem since. your mileage may vary, of coursecheersvilk

I am using the nvodngov19147-[Guru3D.com] drivers from Guru 3D I tried the 91.47 from Nvidia but went back to the above with good results. Craig

which is best: settings app.-controlled or user-defined within the card. Assuming a good driver.
