View Full Version : Driver problem

05-29-07, 01:40 PM
Windows Vista Ultimate 32-Bit performs horrible with any nv driver
I am currently using nForce 15.00 and 158.43

Vista runs at the same speed as it would, if there was no driver installed at all
-10+ seconds to open my computer Sorry for this, but it has to be said "WTF"
-8+ seconds to open my documents "Another WTH"

I never had this problem with my ASUS P5W DH Deluxe + my 1950XTX, what the heck is wrong with nForce and nvdrivers???

-XP 32-Bit runs flawless using 158.27 w/ nForce 9.53 :)

My last question:
Any system stability issues that would occur by me using the old control panel, its got a much better layout I.M.O.

Hi Mike, welcome to nvnews :)

The fact that XP runs flawless seems to rule out a hardware problem.

Did you do a fresh install, or upgrade to Windows Vista when you installed it? How big is your Windows partition? Do you have a lot of folder/documents in My Docs folder?

The problems you describe don't really sound like a video driver issue. nForce, perhaps. What is your Windows System Assessment Rating (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/topics/vista/winsat.mspx)?

The Vista OS is on my second partition and it was a clean install
I even locked the partition out from XP until vista was ready to be used

Aslong as you don't format D: | E: XP can't use it until you authorize it
If you make the mistake of authorizing it for XP, it adds a bunch of uneccessary files to the new partitions.

Update XP (All Updates)
After updates read zero you can unlock partition 2 and 3

Partition #1 - 74GB Raptor Windows XP
Partition #2 - 74GB Seagate Vista Ultimate 32-Bit
Partition #3 - 301GB Seagate (1 Drive *2 Partitions) Storage Area

Windows Assessment Rating? I gotta switch OS's brb
