Issues Resolved in Version 91.28

The following are changes made and issues resolved since driver version 84.43:

  • NVIDIA Ex Support
  • This is a performance optimization for nForce 590 motherboards. This optimization can be enabled through a BIOS setting on the nForce 590 motherboard. The GPU Ex setting should only be enabled with Optimized NVIDIA Ex ForceWare Release 90 drivers.

  • Single-GPU Issues Resolved
  • GeForce 7600 GT/GS, GeForce 7900 GT: With LCD and HDTV enabled under Clone mode and the HDTV set to any mode other than 480i, the HDTV mode switches to 480i upon reboot.
  • Windows XP: Corruption occurs when running the Timburry Buglooker demo.
  • GeForce 6800, Windows XP Media Center Edition: While Windows Media Player 10 is playing a video file, MCE shows a blank screen when launched.
  • GeForce 6800: Shadow corruption occurs in the game Lineage II.

  • SLI Technology Issues Resolved
  • GeForce 7800 GTX/GT, SLI: Stuttering occurs in NHL2006 with SLI AA enabled.
  • Windows XP, GeForce 7800 GTX, SLI: F.E.A.R. may not run on the AMD FX-60 with Asus A8MSLI32.
    To work around this issue, adjust the hypertransport settings in the BIOS as follows:
    - K8 to NB frequency: 5x
    - NB to NB LinkWidth: 16/16
    - SB to NB frequency: 5x
    - SB to NB LinkWidth: 16/16
  • GeForce 6800, SLI: The audio is corrupt during the intro videos in Flat Out when SLI is enabled.
  • GeForce 6600, SLI, Windows XP: Double image of the scene appears when running Star Wars Republic Commando.
  • GeForce 6600, SLI, Windows XP: Corruption occurs along the SLI split line when playing Grand Theft Auto : San Andreas.
  • GeForce 6600, SLI, Windows XP: With antialiazing enabled from the NVIDIA panel, car textures are corrupted in Need for Speed Most Wanted, and ghosting occurs in FIFA 2006.
  • GeForce 6600, SLI, Windows XP: Gameplay and menu performance drops when running Kohan 2: Kings of War in SLI mode with 4x antialiasing enabled.

Open Issues in Version 91.28

  • NVIDIA Issues - Single GPU
  • NVIDIA Control Panel: The digital display cannot be set to its native resolution when the analog display is set as the primary display under nView Clone or Spanning modes.
  • NVIDIA Control Panel: There is no Clone, Span, or Dualview mode option when CRT, DVI dongle, and HDTV are connected at the same time.
  • There may be intermittent application compatibility issues with dual core CPUs.
    If you experience this issue, you can work around it by toggling off multi-thread optimizations using the following instructions:
    1 Launch regedit and determine the current primary display card by looking in HKey_Local_Machine\Hardware\DeviceMap\Video and note the GUID (global unique identifier assigned by Windows), which is the long string in brackets { } at the end of the entry "\device\video0".
    2 Look in HKey_Local_Machine\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\{GUID}\0000 where {GUID} is the number derived from the previous step.
    3 Open the "0000" directory and create a new DWORD called OGL_ThreadControl and give it a value of 2. This will disable multithreading in the driver for all OpenGL applications.
    4 If you want to disable driver multithreading for all Direct3D applications:
    In the same "0000" directory, create a new DWORD called WTD_EXECMODEL and give it a value of 0.
  • All GPUs: When adding Custom Resolutions, the user is not allowed to select the "monitor scaling" option.
  • Windows XP: The system crashes after enabling NVKeystone with antialiasing enabled.
  • Video color-space range for DVI-only ("DVI-only" means only one display is connected, and it is to the DVI output) outputs is erroneously set to standard mode (16-235) instead of extended mode (0-255).
    A new detection feature to apply Standard CSC mode to TV outputs (including NTSC, PAL, 480i, and 576i), included DVI-only outputs by mistake.
    Note: The driver correctly applies extended mode to analog outputs, and standard mode to TV outputs (including NTSC, PAL, 480i, and 576i).
    A future driver release will correct this and apply the extended-mode color space to DVI-only outputs.
    You can work around this issue by forcing either standard or extended mode as follows:
    1 Launch regedit and determine the current primary display card by looking in HKey_Local_Machine\Hardware\DeviceMap\Video and note the GUID (global unique identifier assigned by Windows), which is the long string in brackets { } at the end of the entry "\device\video0".
    2 Look in HKey_Local_Machine\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\{GUID}\0000 where {GUID} is thenumber derived from the previous step.
    3 Open the "0000" directory and create a new DWORD called VMRCCCSStatus and give it a value of
    0x3 - to force use of the standard YUV range of 16-235
    0x1 - to force use of the extended YUV range of 0-255

Driver is a whopping 104 MB (109,745,374 bytes) uncompressed (290 files). :)

After nvliting and ripping out more files it is now 14 MB compressed and still fully functional. :)

NVLiTE currently does not recognize all of the new control panel help files yet, so you will have to delete those by hand, there are over 100 I think so have fun.

Legalalien has it installed already and the control panel runs fine for him, has some interesting new options, and he says it runs his games...

###### good!

i have everything set on high... with resolution at 1280x960 and it was actually pretty good! (i usually stay at 1024x768)

He was playing NFSMW on a 5700 Go.

Something new with this driver, the nvsvc32.exe seems to shutdown normally (without the 'usual' windows error I'd with other drivers).

For me it's integrated into the desktop's context menu.

Did anyone manage to enable "nTune" as seen on http://www.vr-zone.com/?i=3661&s=1? It's not working on my 7600Go.

Maybe it only works on Nforce mainboards. That would be a pity, would be very interesting to control my laptops fan.

Ok ignore that, the problem seems to have sorted its self out. I just hope this driver fixes my DVI monitor freezing during games.

After installing the driver my TV Tuner software vanished. Had to install the TV Tuner software again. But then the actual TV Tuner stick was not recognised. This was resolved after plugging it to a different USB port. Weird. Everything seems to be ok now.

XPS M1710, 512 NVidia GeForce Go 7900 GTX

The driver also didn't resolve the 'video hardware unrecognised' message when installing Oblivion and the consequent stuttering during the gameplay. But this could be sth to do with the game itself.

With This driver I am not able to downclock my 2D graphic til 110/25 :-(

Can this be fixed or do you think I have to return to the old driver?

I tried these drivers last night. Oblivion, Guild Wars, HL2 and all source games crashed to the desktop. Quake 4 ran great. I went back to 84.56 and everything worked again. I am on an m170 with a 256mb 7800 GTX Go.

I got the blue screen of death when attempting to install with the modded driver on my Dell XPS M1710. Also tried the Nzone download just in case, same result. :)

Didn't catch the full error message, I just re-ghosted back the image, but it had to do with the nv4_disp.dll being naughty... :)

I was thinking about ghosting my m170 back to a base load. Then installing the drivers and HL2 to see if it works. Most of the people with desktop systems are reporting that all of their games work and with much better IQ.

Also these drivers force 4x AA and 8x AF, so that may be the source of these problems as well.
