Simple question regarding SP2

Recommended Posts

I am running FSX on XP with a Nvidia 7950GT video card. I have tried to read all the threads regarding the problem of my system locking up when going to the windowed mode after installing SP2.Is there a difinative answer as to what to do to solve this problem?As I read the post there seems to be conflicting answers and then suddenly they turn into Vista and DX10 fixes.Is there a solution that would apply only to FSX running on XP with a Nvidia 7950 card?Thanks in advance. Bob G.

I have the Nvidia GeForce 7950 GX2Driver set: 6.14.10.9381Works great. Not sure if you can still get this driver or not.I usually don't recommend using an older driver set, but I've seen so many complaints recently from NVidia users about driver problems that I've decided for now to stick with what works.

If that is the orginal driver that came with the card, I guess I can just go to the CD and load that driver. Do you think it is the original driver?Bob G.
