Thanks for the post. However, I believe that something here is wrong with my setup. I just bought a new Dell Dimension 8200 witwh GF4Ti4200. I get these settings (after Det. 4 is installed):

-GeForce4ti 4200
- nView Display Mode
- 3D AntiAlias Settings
- Overlay Control
- NVRotate
- Clock Frequencies
- AGP Settings

So this is my dilema! I got the Clock Frequencies and AGP settings by using the script Coolbits. I need to somehow enable:

OpenGL Settings
Direct3D Settings
Desktop Utilities

I suspect that this Dell configuration is somehow blocking these from the registry.

Any further help would be appreciated..

the same thing has happened to me MRblue...have you found a way to enable direct3d and opengl settings yet? i have very similar system specs as you and have same problem when installing 40.41' would be nice to be able to get to direct3d settings for the refresh rates but i tried 2 times and cant get it to show either. my specs are Dell Demension 8200 P4 2.26GHz with 533MHz system bus/ 512K L2 Cache ~256MB PC800 RDRAM~80GB Ultra ATA/100 Hard Drive~128MB DDR NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4600~with 30.82 driver's~24x/10x/40x CD-RW Drive Harman Kardon HK-395 Speakers with Subwoofer ~Sound Blaster Live~ WinXP Home edition.
how i installed 40.41's was went to add/remove progams..removed nvidia display system went to some 2945 drivers or something ...then i installed the 4041's, but no direct3d panel or opengl panel. i can get the patch for the overclocking from guru but it still didnt give me direct3d. also was wondering why after uninstalling my nvidia drivers does system reboot and then go to these 2945? how can i get it to go to standard display adapters? or is the 2945 it? ive installed other drivers before these with no problems doing it that way. it may be best to wait for the official 40xx's from nvidia but i still may not be able to see the direct3d and opengl tabs.
