View Full Version : ForceWare 81.85 and problem in 2D mode

10-24-05, 10:53 AM

I think there is a bug with the newest 81.85 drivers.
When I installed them and my CPU usage has increased to 100%, even when opening a window or Windows Explorer. Everything was running very slowly, so I reinstalled the graphic drivers and went back to old good 77.72 and now everything seems to be fine.

Has anyone also experienced such problem like mine?

haven't heard of any such issues. did you use driver cleaner?

Yes, I did, even 2 times - one after uninstalling the drivers and after restart.

The series goes 81.84, 81.87, 81.94, 81.95 and the whole thing seems buggy.
I blew my silly NForce2 mobo just finding drivers that worked.
What happens if I slam an overclocked card on this thing? Who knows???
77.72+ seems to be the years benchmark for stability.

These seem to be working pretty well for me except for the same bugs that others have been reporting in the 81.85/94 threads. FS2004 has corruption, Pacific Fighters has corruption and flickering, Luna turns completely black during the 2nd sequence of the demo (when the green orb part starts) and the Negative LOD Bias and AA settings in the global profile sometimes get changed when modifying the game specific profiles. Other than those issues, everything else seems to be working well.
