Hi all.

I have just purchased and installed a Gainward Ti4200 XP GS 128mb.

I use a dual monitor setup ( see my specs below)...I cannot get Nview to load on startup???...The only way to get it to startup and enable the menu extentions is to go into control panel and start up the nView Desktop Manager manually!!! just by double clicking on it and then closing the window down again.....I then get the right click menu extentions etc etc etc......Is this correct or am I missing something?....surely I shouldnt have to do this every time??????

I assumed that using the Wizard config tool when it says " load at windows startup " or something like that...that it would load and give me the right click menu options?...Am I still missing something?

Anyone else have this problem...I have e-mailed Gainward 2 times over this but had no reply:mad:

I am using Det's 28.32....I have tried all the drivers above this including 40.41's but no luck the problem is still there.....I normally reboot into Safe Mode and remove the old drivers and software etc etc...and then on reboot install the new drivers.....what am I doing wrong??

I am very annoyed that I cant get this simple util to work as this is the reason I purchased the card in the first place:mad:

Please help if you can......I know I must be missing a simple step but i just cant figure it out.:confused:

Just a note I thought of that you may have asked:...I have re installed the whole OS 5 times now!!!!...now that IS a clean system...lol....still no luck...tell me what i'm missing guys....lol...it's got to be sooooooooooooo simple i'll kick myself....lol

Hi All.

I have sorted the problem out now....for all those that are interested the problem was caused by Gainwards "so called" Expert Tool v1 and v2...when I installed the drivers from the Manufacturers CD it installed this program as well (no way of selecting NOT to install it!!!).

Expert Tool and nView were conflicting with each other so neither would start up.

I did ANOTHER clean install and just put the DET 40.41 drivers on from Nvidia...sorted.!!

Previous to this I assumed that the Expert Tool just HAD TO BE installed for the card to function correctly and to use the other OC features etc etc etc of this card....not so!!!.

As you are all aware...DET 40.41 has its own OC tab....cooolll......so....no need for the now defunct Expert Tool program.

All is fine now.....funny thing is my program menu speed has gone back to 0 secs and the system has stopped re-selecting animation for windows effects (i turn all this rubbish off by default)....so these two conflicts must have been causing one hell of a problem for the desktop shell???

40.41 nView is still not quite bug free..but...hey!!...I can live with it for the time being....and will now give the card a fair chance to impress me.
