My problem is with nVidia drivers and I think problem is scaling. I am using 1280 X 960 resolution with 85 Hz but after 196.21, 196.34 and this 196.75 drivers I have a problem with my resolution. Screen is unclear and something wrong like blurry on Windows. I can't look the monitor so much time becuase it is making headache for me. So I am still using 195.81 driver it has no problem like these drivers above. I hope you will fix this annoying issue. Also I think it is Windows 7 only problem, I tried these new drivers on Windows XP but there is no problem like Windows 7. Is there an option to disable this new nvidia auto scaling that came with 196.21, 196.34 and this 196.75 drivers on registry or some other place? I was using custom resolution from nvidia control panel and it was working.

As far as I'm concerned, HTPC user (and exclusively HTPC, no games); 196.75 is the best release since pretty much.. EVER.

- The VMR9 zooming bug is fixed (unbelievable!!)
- The Colorspace are back to what they should be (default TV levels for the VMRs without any need to change anything in the driver anymore).
- VMR9 code seem enhanced, switching from video to video has never been faster.

The scaling option still doesn't show up for HDTV, but running "%windir%\system32\rundll32.exe NvCpl.dll,dtcfg setscaling 1 DA 5" still does the trick.

VERY HAPPY CAMPER HERE!

For once in a huge while, I'm happy to say: [b]Thank you, nVidia[/b].

My problem is with PCI-e 2.0. It is a problem across many manufacturers, and many models of motherboards. From Intel X38, X48 and X58, to even some of the AMD chipsets. Asus, Gigabyte, Intel, MSI, etc. all have affected boards.

The problems is shown in some detail here:

It affects quite a few Nvidia drivers, like shown in the topics above. 186.18 is the last drivers I know of where it worked properly. 196.75 still shows only PCI-e 1.1 mode working (picture at bottom of post). I would appreciate any information you can provide on this issue, whether it can be fixed by Nvidia, or it really does need the manufacturers to update their BIOS.

Despite this one issue, I am really pleased with Nvidia drivers. I have not had them crash even once since early Vista beta days.

Still can't get dual display support on my 8600GT, only black screen on display 2..!
This only works with the 182.50 driver for Windows 7 64bit
FIX THIS!!!!!!!!! /wallbash.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':wallbash:' />

Is NVIDIA ever going to implement down clocking features for the primary gpu when you have multiple displays in SLI?
Possibly rearrange things so the second monitor can be plugged into the second gpu when SLI is enabled for down clocking to work on both cards with multi monitors.

Installed driver to a new windows installation same thing happens, install safe mode, still get same result, these are using drivers from the UK nvidia website.

Ever since installing 196.21 WHQL my GFX card refuses to send a video signal after the XP Boot Screen; this new driver doesn't fix the issue. I'm dealing with poor performance in a number of newer games, and it's causing some issues with Battlefield Bad Company 2 in addition to the frame rates. I've searched all over and can't find a fix to this problem, but I sure can find tons of people with the same issue, shame Nvidia hasn't responded. I'm going to call BFG, but they shouldn't be the ones to have to solve this for me.

I havn't used these drivers yet. Can anyone tell me if the "resize desktop" option when using a dvi to hdmi cable is re-enabled in this driver? If it isn't then I will have to stay with my 182.50 driver for a bit longer.

"To avoid this situation and provide a better user experience, the driver treats certain TVs–
such as the Viewsonic VX2835wm and the Westinghouse LVM‐ 37w3–as a DVI monitor
when applying the native mode."

why was not my screen included in this , when you have made the exception for the 2 listed on the pdf for this latest release,

where are the contact details to send you guys this card, im getting really angry , this whole situation is ridiculous, i have wsted my time reporting my problems and nothing has been done.

Drivers seems good, stable & fast for me....but no Nvidia Surround. :(

Edit: A few of points of note

[list]
[*]Driver install finished without prompting for restart - nice, but...
[*]Reboot required to get SLI working again - didn't have to do anything else
[*]3D Vision IR emitter driver wasn't properly installed with the drivers - had to reinstall from the 1.20 CD release & then run the 3D Vision setup from the new driver release to update and get it all working again.

I cannot get these drivers to install properly. Once it just hung up mid way through, the other three times, it seems to install yet I have no nVidia control panel, cannot start a game and in my device manager the drivers appear and are up to date but there is an exclamation about them not being digitally signed. Also, DXDiag is not showing any information for my graphics card now. The card is the Geforce 9800 GX2 with 4 GB of RAM.

This is the link I'm downloading from:

I've had to go back to the 196.21 drivers.

This is the first time I've had trouble with nVidia drivers and I'm rather surprised and disappointed.

Please advise.
