Do I need to download a driver?
I have a 64 Mb DDR NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4200 with TV out card, Version 4.25.0029 in my DELL 8200 Dimension which is already "of age". The card worked satisfactory with a SONY 19 inch Trinitron and DELL 19 inch flat screen monitors but when I installed a new 24 inch wide-screen DELL P2411H monitor it did NOT work well (poor colors, text lines overlap, grid lines do not show etc.).

To troubleshoot my problems I need to know whether NVIDIA has a NEWER driver for my card. But here is my problem. On the NVIDIA drivers site I found that the site is ready to download a driver for my card. But it does NOT say what driver it will download, what version etc. Now as it is well known each download has potential dangers and must be avoided if possible. So if the download will give me the same driver as I have now I should not do it.

Please help me first of all about the driver - is there a newer version for my card against the one that I have? And also if there IS a way to find this answer on the site - how to do it?

My best apologies if I did not do on the drivers site something right and many thanks for attention and help.

try using the drop down selections for your card on nvidias site and find your card in the list. also the nvidia auto detect should show you the driver version for your card and let you choose to download it and then install it.
also maybe your out dated graphics card does not support a 24 monitor.
