They also seem to have changed the site (http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us) layout.

Yup, the new Nvidia driver download page is no longer beta and is now official.

maybe because you want to download WHQL for Vista, thats only 163.69 so far, while 163.71 is XP only :)

I put in:
-GeForce
-GeForce 8 series
-WindowsXP
-English (US)

and I still get taken to 162.18 :confused:

----update----

Ok if you put in English (UK) it takes you to the 163.71 international set. The US version 163.71WHQL is live on the site though (at link below); looks like they just haven't updated the search utility to point to it yet.

nhancer stopped working after installing this new driver set.

Read the nHancer thread in the GF7/8 forum, it's a known issue and there's a fix as well as a new version in the works...

Here we go again - neither Control Panel nor nTune showing. When will this journey end ??? Drivers above 1xx.xx bring only trouble at my installation. I will try to solve and post again. Man this is beginning to tick me off again. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Working fine for Bigman. Had nightmares with CP for awhile back than but scowered the registry and removed crap and works like a charm. Don't use them with Ntune you will get a infinate loop BSOD.

From the documentation pdf:

GeForce 7 Series GPUs
[SLI], GeForce 7300/7600: SLI mode cannot be enabled. [349475]

That's the only change listed.

Dear Bigman - what registry revision will make the CP work ??? I do not want to go back to 9x.xx drivers. Actual games do not run well with them.

Thank you and Best Regards Weiser WalFisch

Just do the removal in safemode and do driver cleaner a couple of times, reboot back into safe mode, and run lets say regseeker and searech for common nvidia display entries like nv4_dsp, nvcpl, nvogl.dll, and remove them.

You may find a couple of stubbern ones that say access denied never new why its safe mode who cares. force admin rules on those entries and remove them. For some reason driver removal software does a ****ty job with registry.

Good luck and have a nice Saturday night.

Can't seem to get profile loading to work. Worked fine in 163.44. First I installed 163.71 on top of 163.44 and noticed that rules weren't loading. Tried creating a new profile and then loading it and got an error message "There has been a problem loading blah blah blah.nsu". Uninstalled ntune and drivers, booted into safe mode and ran Driver Cleaner Pro, reinstalled 163.71 and ntune, same problem. Evertime I think Nvidia had finally got their driver development on the right track, they fork something up.

I am still losing AA+HDR in Oblivion even when I use nhancer after 10 minutes of game play.

I installed them yesterday and they work fine to me

Not a problem at all with any of my games

Good drivers :clap:

They also seem to be optimized for latest games

Improved compatibility for game titles: BioShock, Crysis, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Hellgate: London, Team Fortress 2, and World in Conflict.

Any performance improvements for Jericho ?

The Jericho demo runs fine with 163.71 WHQL...i tested it :)

but i did not saw any difference in performance with the previous official drivers

Many thanks to you Bigman - the combo af safe mode, driver uninstallation, driver cleaner and three tours with Regseeker followed by some manual work solved this problem. :) :) :) :) :)

Bigman from student to teacher...good job bro. I know I rode you about rolling up your sleeves and troubleshooting that issue and now you are the "CP doesn't load" guy! :)
