If you are running any version prior to NVMax 4.0 there is a possibility the new drivers can't be configured using this tweaker.Sadly, the developers have ceased all work on the NVMax tweaker. You might want to look into Rivatuner or the GTU. There is a GTU out now that includes a help file.Go here: http://www.guru3d.comHope this helps,

You really should read the instructions ;-)You need to completely UNINSTALL the current nVidia drivers before installing new nVidia drivers. Thats why there is an uninstall option.What generally happens is that people don't, and they end up with mixed versions of the drivers installed, and things don't work properly, since various files could not be replaced due to their locked status and the driver install fails silently (not errors reported).Installation takes at least 2 reboots (once to uninstall, once post installation). Cheating doesn't buy you anything but headaches.Ray

RayAccording to the instructions from nVidia, uninstalling isn't necessary with the self-installing (.exe) drivers. Can't say if this likelly to cause problems as I always uninstall anyway.David

Argh!! What the heck was I thinking? I could've sworn you said you hadn't rebooted your comp, hence my previous response... Anyway, you do need to uninstall previous drivers *just to be safe* (no matter what Nvidia says) before installing new drivers. Max Cowgill
