The 64 bit link is broken! ARGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!:thumbdwn: (nana2) :thumbdwn:

I had the same problem as you. We apparently have hit a different server than others who have gotten it. Use this link:

Media Center is still broken in windowed mode in both 32 and 64bit. It's not even a known issue...

Would anyone be so kind to check if the tv-out is working with these drivers?

Thanks!

my performance with these drivers with SLI enabled is terrible. I have the following

X2 4800+
Creative X-fi xtreme music
dual EVGA 8800GTX
SATA II HD

and I only get an average of 32 fps in FEAR benchmark. I haven't disabled any services or tweaked anything, this is just with the base drivers installed. In windows xp with same hardware I get 100fps average in FEAR.

My 3D Mark06 score dropped from 16,881 in Windows XP to 9,865 in Windows Vista with these drivers. Obviously, these are very early drivers with SLi support, but the performance drop is astounding.

Corrected the issue that I was having. I uninstalled Nhancer because it must not yet support SLI in vista and it was slowing the system down. I now get 80FPS average at 1920x1200 16xAF, 4xAA. Still not up to par with windows xp, but hopefully it will get there soon.

Installed and working fine on my 7800 GTX. The default inf supports a lot more than the 8800 ;)

I still can't get AA+HDR working in Oblivion at all. Also still can't get NFS:Carbon working either.

nvidia is just a joke now.
so kicking my self for ever buying into 8800gtx and 680i hype.
yes its a good card, but software/driver support has been horrid.
vista been in rc mode for half a year or more.
Can we please keep this thread about these drivers and NOT on how nvidia needs to get with it. All you people who are constantly complaining about drivers for vista are starting to really piss me off. Just STFU. (that is not directed at you queth...it's directed at everybody.) Every thread that mentions vista drivers turns into a crap fest.

/end rant

Anyways...carry on...

Downloading now....

For Carbon, RENAME the "movies" directory to something else, i.e.: "Movies2" and the game will work just fine with 100.54+ drivers.

As for oblivion, HDR + AA does work, make sure you set "enhance settings" in 3d settings panel w/game executable added and ensure AA is set off in game settings.

Yes, 8800 = GREAT CARD, VISTA = CRAP OS.

For all the 8800 haters, it works great in XP. It's not Nvidia's fault Vista is such a POS.


It's just amazing how many event errors vista has and you didn't even install any drivers and software.

Did you retest? I know after installing my drivers I had to retest for it to update.

I have Vista Home Premium x64 and a 8800GTX. It shows my score as 5.8.

Quake 4 works with these drivers. Switch audio to openAL, otherwise it gets a bit choppy. Xi-Fi Platinum here...
1600*1200, dual core support enabled, AF8x AA2x, vsync off, Texture Quality Ultra High. It runs at 60FPS all the time.
