First, sorry for my english, it's not very good. :-P

Well my problem is that after I install ForceWare 61.77 (I have Athlon XP 1700+, WXP SP2 and GeForce 4 4200 AGP8X), when I launch many games, like Sims 2 or Tony Hawk's Underground 2, the computer freeze and I have to make a manual reset. Sometimes the screen goes black or sometimes I can see the first frame or image of the intro of the game only. With other games, like Star Wars Battlefront or Doom 3, I can play whithout problems.

The problem is when I install 61.77 or newest, like 66.81, because with 53.03 or olders I donīt have any problems.

Other people with this problem? or Any idea of what it's the problem?, What change in ForceWare 6x.xx since 53.03, that make this?

Thank you for all.

If 53.03 was working for you, then you should reinstall them, or you could simply do a system restore to the point in time that the 53.03 Drivers were on your system. :)

what card do you have? if you don't have a geforce 6xxx card then the 6x.xx drivers are not really going to help that much...well, they may but you may want to stick with the drivers that are the best for your type of card if you are having the issues...there was a post here a while back giving the optimal drivers for each generation of Nvidia hardware.

install the 45.23 are the best for Geforce4 series :P


the only problem is that they don't have game-profiles.
