View Full Version : NForce and Detenator issues?

03-24-03, 07:54 PM
Alright, I'm having a slightly odd problem, and hope someone out there has a idea of what might be going on.

First, the info about my rig:

AMD XP 1600+
768 Megs of Ram
ABit NV7133R Mother Board (Nforce Based)
Extasy Geforce 3 TI 200 video card
Windows XP SP1 as the OS

That should be enough, now my problem. If I go in and install the newest NForce Drivers (2.03 I believe) and then the most recent Detenator drivers, the boot process freezes, and the computer just won't boot without having to reboot it like 5 or 6 times. However, if I leave the 2.03 NForce drivers in the system, and go back to Detenator 30.82 drivers, it boots, and runs just fine. Does anyone have any solutions?

Does this problem only exist with one particular video driver set or does it do it with all 4x.xx series drivers?

As near as I can tell, and I have tried most of the 40.x series, it happens with anything newer than the 30.x series. That's why I finally gave up and dropped to 30.82, but I am tired at being that far behind in drivers.

I have this board, and this type of video card, but I have not this problem. Try running drivercleaner after getting rid of 30.82 maybe?

Have you tried the 43.45 drivers NV released today?

That did the trick.

I uninstalled my old drivers, used DriverCleaner to get rid of everything, and installed the newest, and they work just fine.

Thanks for the heads up on the new drivers.

I find drivercleaner handy, it makes me positive that nothing fooked up my drivers that way...some even reported speed increases after using it
