Hi there,

I am at my wits end!

Running XP64, trying to install the newest WHQL off the nVidia site and it won't pick up my two 7800GTs at all.

Tried doing manual install through device manager and it says access is denied as if it's not recognising the hardware.

I really am at a loss as what to do here, newest FW not working with 7800GTs.

INSANE! Heeelp lol

Are you sure you are downloading the 64 bit version?

101% certain!

File name reads also , 81.95_forceware_winxp64_english_whql direct and fresh from www.nvidia.com !

I am having to use modded drivers right now, how daft is that!

Holy $%£$! ...

Found the problem!! My anti virus was running a silent process in the background which completely borked the install ....emptied prefetch and removed all driver traces , remove AV and tried again and now its all hunky dorey! Phew!
