Default Has anyone figured out the new Nvidia PDF for the 40.41?

Does anyone still modify the driver inf anymore?

I have been modifying my own driver inf for my refresh rates for awhile now. Nvidia had put out a PDF awhile back on how to do this. I really liked doing it this way, put in my own refresh rates-install the driver and everything was all set.

Now Nvidia changed the code big time on the 40.41 and the old way of editing the inf no longer works. Nvidia just put out a new PDF on how to do this but I can't understand it.

Has anyone checked this out? I sure would like to know how to use it.


If anyone is interested (I sure hope so), here is where it is

Heh heh. Well here is an update for anyone who may want to edit the inf (by no responses here it seems no one is interested but hey, someone might be) and not have to use a programs to adjust refresh rates.

I was posting this all over the place because it was bugging the crap out of me and I finally found a couple of guys who cleared it up for me.

It's really pretty cool once you figure it out. I cleaned out all the garbage resolutions (who the hell uses anything below 640x480 or above 1600x1200?!) and plopped in only the ones I use all with a refresh rate of 85 ONLY (=10)

in other words... (from the inf)

HKR,, NV15BR_Modes_Delta, %REG_MULTI_SZ%, "S 640x480 800x600 1024x768 1152x864 1280x960 1280x1024 1600x1200=10;"

and for when my rmad gf4 comes back to me on friday

HKR,, NV25_Modes_Delta, %REG_MULTI_SZ%, "S 640x480 800x600 1024x768 1152x864 1280x960 1280x1024 1600x1200=10;"


nice and compact. That gives me all those resolutions at every color depth with a refresh rate of 85. I could jump to 100 or higher for the reses below 1600x1200 but why bother?

Cool. Same for me. I use only one refresh rate for a specific res (and I don't use that many resolutions so why even have the ones there I don't use). Once I spent the time setting it up the first time, it's just a matter of copy and paste to edit future driver infs. Simple, easier (for me anyway) than installing, then having to open a program to set each refresh rate. Plus it was fun doing it and having a better understanding of what's going on. Let's see how long now before nvidia changes the whole thing again.

I just read an article on the finished Windows XP service pack. There is absolutely no mention of a refresh rate fix. Figures. Looks like we will have to continue on the course we are on.
