NVIDIA 3D Vision setup Description of 3D Vision set up with detailed steps.
[b]Most users have difficulty in setting up 3D VISION on their computer.[/b]

If you have a GTX 560Ti or above series of card the you just need to download the graphics driver and also install the 3D Vision Driver at: [url="http://www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-geforce-driver.html"]3D Vision Controller driver[/url]

Just for your information, click on the following link for the minimum system requirements for the 3D Vision

[url="http://www.nvidia.com/object/3D_Vision_Requirements.html"]3D Vision requirements[/url]

If you are using a 3D monitor then you MUST use a DVI to DVI direct connection to connect the monitor to the graphics card. If you have a TV or a projector then direct HDMI connection is recommended.

If the current setup is 3 D Vision ready then please click on the following link to download the latest 3D Display drivers

As part of the basic troubleshooting, please try reinstalling the drivers by performing the following steps to reinstall the drivers

1. Download the NVIDIA 3D Vision CD kit driver

2. Double click on the file and run the "3D Vision_Autorun " file from the extracted folder

3. Install the GeForce "graphics driver" first from the menu
>In the install options choose "Custom advanced" and the click on "perform clean install"
>Restart the computer after the installation has finished.

4. Browse to the extracted folder again and run autorun.exe and Install the "3D Vision driver "

After the 3D Vision driver is installed, the 3D Vision Setup Wizard will automatically launch and guide you through setup of your 3D Vision system

I don't know about "most" users but you cover the two most common problems I've seen on the boards for people with 3D monitors:

1. They use their old DVI cable. It's already plugged into their computer and plugs into the same socket. When they try, though, they get messages about their monitor not being a 3D display. What's needed is a 2-way DVI cable. One should have come with the monitor.

2. They get drivers crossed up. Either they don't get the special USB driver at all or they get a version that does not match the video drivers or 3D controller. When you get 3D Vision it is definitely best to use a 3D Vision CD. You can use the one that comes with it or, better yet, get the latest version. I wouldn't trust that link above, though. A new version may have come out plus there are also different drivers depending on the country you are in. I think you are better off going to the NVIDIA website (or www.geforce.com) and getting the drivers there. When you do, search set the product type and product series to 3D Vision and the product to the full driver CD.

@Zloth,

Good point on the Dual-Link DVI cable, we seen many cases where users infortunally try to connect their new 3D Vision ready display using their old Single-Link DVI cable.

@Kazim,

Our sofware team made a significant change with the new R270 drivers that were released in beta earlier this week. [b]Starting with these drivers and going forward, the 3D Vision Controller driver is now bundled with the GeForce driver[/b]. This has been something we have been working awhile to fix and now you are ensured to always get the 3D Vision Controller driver when you install a new GeForce driver.

@Patrick: Now the things are simplest of all.

Just Install the [url="http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us"]GeForce Driver[/url] and the [url="http://www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-video-player-1.6.9-driver.html"]NVIDIA 3D Video player[/url] and you are good to go. This is what most people were looking for.

So from now on, there will be no more 3D Vision CD1.xx downloads? Only Geforce drivers?

Correct. Starting with Release 270 drivers, NVIDIA has made changes to the GeForce and 3D Vision driver installation process to make new driver updates easier. Please read the following FAQ for full details:

The Release 270 driver has two options:

[list=1]

[*][b]Express installation [/b] will automatically remove all previous 3DController drivers. NOTE: NVIDIA recommends most users use the Express driver installation option.

[*][b]Custom installation [/b]allows users to select which drivers to install, including the 3D Vision Driver and 3D Vision Controller Driver. If you choose to do a Custom Installation, NVIDIA recommends to allow the custom installation to install all new Release 270 3D Vision related drivers.
[/list]
NOTE: You cannot run a Release 260 or 265 3D Vision Controller Driver with Release 270 GeForce drivers. Therefore if you chose to unselect the 3D Vision Controller driver during custom install, any previously installed 3D Vision Controller driver on the system will get uninstalled. This is to ensure driver compatibility

    Is the "3D Vision Controller Driver" the same thing as the USB Driver?

    Good to hear that there's a custom installation now. Before I had 3D Vision, I would always cut off the setup program and delete the 3D setup program to keep it off my system.
