NVIDIA DRIVERS non aero compatible Warning can not use USB monitors with out WDDM Aero compatibility
I'm having same issues with NVIDIA 260.00 and higher. I have tried GTX 260, 285, and now 465, and same issues.

WIN 7 64 bit Home prem, latest update and the drivers refuse to install correctly I have issues ticket after ticket after ticket, 4 months later still same problem.
None of the drivers are WDDM aero capable I can not use multiple monitors that are USB, they required aero display-link windows drivers.

NVIDIA when are you going to fix this problem?

This is an odd issue as hundreds of thousands of people have installed the nVidia 100-200-260 drivers with Vista and 7 Areo functionality working. The current drivers support the advanced features of Windows 7 and are WDDM 1.1 capable. However, you mentioned a "USB Monitor". These monitors do not use use the nVidia hardware (they are plugged into the USB port, not the nVidia video card) and will install their own drivers which may not be Aero compatible. Windows Vista/7 may limit the use of Aero on multiple monitor displays where one of the displays does not support Aero.

As Secured2k mentioned, there is no endemic problem using the nVidia cards with Win 7 Aero. Although I am on an x86 OS, my daughter has the x64 version and she has no problems with the nVidia drivers. Now you mention "USB" monitors. Please provide a bit more details as that might be the reason why you are struggling.

it did not work windows aero is not available; I can not use aero themes after installing any thing above 258.96. I can not change my windows colors or themes.

would the P6T not be compatible with the new versions of the drivers?

The current video card may support Aero with a driver that is compliant with the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM). Contact the manufacturer of your computer or video card for a WDDM-compatible driver.

There's somethin' seriously wrong with your system, because no one else is having Aero-issues with these drivers on any DX10-or-higher compliant cards.

I would seriously consider reinstalling your Windows.

I bought a digital picture frame from Samsung (SPF-107H) that doubles as USB monitor as well. When I installed the drivers for it and enabled it, my Windows 7 also lost Aero.

I do not think this has anything to do with nVidia, it is the USB driver that runs the display, not nVidia driver.

Mastiff, you have to do a bit more than just "unplug the USBs" if you've even gone that far.

Unplug them, remove any drivers and hubs associated with them, run a good [url="http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/registry-cleaner/"]Registry Cleaner[/url] and then try again with nothing but a "standard port" output monitor and the nVidia driver...

There's been more than a couple developers caught by surprise by the changes in the driver structure and framework. When the 257-series came out, profiles were rewritten to use a different, more effective interface into the driver itself. I don't believe Grestorn has yet updated nHancer to work with anything but the drivers below 200. RivaTuner's, and in turn Precision's and a couple other RT derivatives, developer [i]unwinder[/i] had to make a couple tweaks to its desktop server. And nVidia Inspector comes along to fill in for one and compete with others.

And each change is most likely in conjunction with the addition of new capabilities. We've gone from a single monitor in SLI [i][b]or[/b][/i] no SLI for multi-monitor, to 3 monitors in SLI for Surround/Surround3D and as many monitors as you can fit cards for (USB not considered). We have configurable PhysX. We now support 5 versions of DirectX, 4 versions of OpenGL, 2 versions of CUDA, yadda, yadda, yadda.

I'm sure nVidia, as does any other company in similar circumstances, tries its best to give sufficient warning to a large set of NDAs, but what are the odds really of even knowing everyone who [i]should[/i] be on the list?

Long-winded way of basically saying "Life happens". And I'm betting that Life feels much better than it recently did now that you've had a chance to find a solution, eh?...

Also having a similar problem I think, but mine is worse, I cant login to windows. Im using a USB monitor also. Heres my original post:
[quote]Hi, Ive tried twice now to update to 260.99, every time I finish installing the update, my computer restarts, and after I type in my password and login, It pretty much stays at the welcome screen and does nothing else, the longest I waited for it is like 15 minutes.

Heres some of my specs:
Windows 7 64-bit
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 @ 2.33GHz
8.0GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 333MHz
XFX XFX nForce 780i 3-Way SLI

512MB GeForce 9800 GTX/9800 GTX+
Sceptre @ 1680x1050
Sceptre X22HG @ 1680x1050
Dell E151FPp @ 1024x768

195GB FUJITSU MAXTOR STM3200820A ATA Device
1465GB Seagate ST315005 41AS SCSI Disk Device
293GB Western Digital WDC WD30 SCSI Disk Device

Realtek High Definition Audio


IDK if theres any incompatibilities with Game Booster(recently installed) or EVGA UV Plus+(dell monitor), just an idea.

But in order to fix the problem after installing, I boot into safe mode and do a system restore.

Anyone have any ideas why this is happening, I kinda wanted to update my drivers in hopes it will help my COD Black Ops experience.[/quote]
