what do these drivers do??

06-04-04, 04:34 PM
maybe these are the drivers we been waiting for....jakUp we need you ;) your our guinny piggy :kill:

06-04-04, 04:37 PM
Don't know...maybe those are the new Uber-drivers?
Someone with a 6800 Ultra, try em while they're hot! ;)
They support all 6800s.
As you don't use a Leadtek card you got to unpack twice and install manually.

NVIDIA_NV40.DEV_0040.1 = "WinFast A400 Ultra"
NVIDIA_NV40.DEV_0041.1 = "WinFast A400"
NVIDIA_NV40.DEV_0042.1 = "WinFast A400(0042)"
NVIDIA_NV40.DEV_0043.1 = "WinFast A400(0043)"
NVIDIA_NV40.DEV_0045.1 = "WinFast A400 GT"

yeah i tried and it says "maybe not a leadtek product" or w/e ;x

06-04-04, 04:39 PM
I heard that in the past Leadtek drivers screw your registry. The result is that if you try to switch your card to another brand (even another Nvidea) the registry entries won't let you.

As I said, unpack twice and run the setup.exe from the setup folder.
Even installed on my Matrox Mystique ;)
(6800 GT is on its way!)

@remymarten: everybody should be able to uninstall such drivers...

06-04-04, 05:14 PM
so whos tried em? wouldnt benifit me much because i still have a ti4200. but maybe jakUp will try them.

06-04-04, 05:44 PM
holy ****.. ill give these a try when I get home later... are they WHQL'd?

06-04-04, 06:32 PM
Just installed them, not WHQL. Dated 5/14/04

Going to play games now. Thanks for the heads up Legionar :)


06-04-04, 07:51 PM
make sure to benchmark. (3dM03) i wonder if youll get a increase on your FX.

06-04-04, 08:06 PM
Hmmm I have a Leadtek card, I will download it now to see if it is reference driver or not. :)

06-04-04, 08:49 PM
Cool guyz im using them now after a manual install.


06-04-04, 08:50 PM
Its a reference driver and its actually dated 5/14/04 by NVIDIA
heres where it said
================================================== ==============================
NVIDIA Display Driver for Windows 2000/XP version 61.21, 05/14/2004
================================================== ==============================

I installed them and noticed a noticable image quality increase in thief 3, except from that IQ increase i lost some framerate, this is with all settings maxed in game too. UT2004 speed increased slightly, although this did bring back my problem of some textures being checkered rainbow colors. I havent tested FarCry performance as i just uninstalled it. This is all on a 5950Utlra

06-04-04, 08:55 PM
Im gonna Bench, Ill be back , lol 3Dmark2003 at 575Mhz DX9.0c :)

06-04-04, 09:15 PM
I had installed without any problem, I did the same thing to install Leadtek driver over my previous Creative Geforce 4 Ti 4600 last year. Before uninstall the driver, make sure you disabled anti-virus and then uninstall the driver. Reboot, then disabled anti-virus again to install Leadtek driver and reboot again, after that everything should be fine. :D

I noticed custom resolutions is added into 61.21 driver, this is for HDTV and LCDTV users. This is what Nvidia driver team promised to me when they replied my post months ago.

Really wow , From I can tell all is really smooth, but One problem already, I have 2142 SP2, and loaded up 3Dmark 2003 all excited !, and went too start her up and the logo just hung there and the app quit responding. Hmmm Im sure its 2142 though.

06-04-04, 09:58 PM
ok.. drivers installed... lets see how this goes

06-04-04, 10:01 PM
I would try them, but I don't know. I have an ASUS and even their own drivers wouldn't work on it, at least the time I tried. LOL I haven't benchmarked yet with the 60.85 and DX9.0c, yet. I am able to oc @ 560/1.03 now, is that because of the drivers or the DX? Besides, my bottleneck is at my cpu and ram. My next purchase is a 3200+ Barton and a gig of pc3200 ddr!!

06-04-04, 10:23 PM
Been playing with them for a little while.. farcry seems a tad quicker... thats it really:) everything else looks and plays the same to me

06-04-04, 10:33 PM
do a 3dmark03 benchmark for us at your 450/1.3ghz speed :)
thx in advanced

Yeah 2142 have bugs caused apps to stop responding and Microsoft fixed and released 2144 already. I will not install 2142 because of bugs, I been tested 2138 on VMware Workstation, everything is fine. Now I am going to install 2138 over SP1 on primary hard drive.

06-04-04, 11:42 PM
