Default FX 5950 and 7x.xx+ drivers problem

Hello fokes,

At the moment i am using a 5950 utd card from Leadtek (A380). Unfortunately, i can't use any forceware version beyond 7x.xx.
After installation of a new (7x.xx or 8x.xx) driver and restarting windows, the only thing i get is a blue error screen.

Leadtek awnsered to me to use the newest 'Leadtek forceware version'. I had to uninstall the old version and install the new after a reboot. A new blue screen was born. Leadtek did not respond on my second mail.

I have no idea what causes the problem. The A380 5950 is named in the list of cards which should be running without a problem. So..., who can help me out ??

Asus A7m266-D - AGP 4x
Dual AMD MP2800+
Leadtek A380 Nvidia 5950 UTD
Win XP SP1

Well,

Today i received a mail from Leadtek. They responded on my message of a month and a half before.
Solution: install the newest drivers from nvidia.com

I had no hesitation to cry for such an awnser, so i tried the driver 81.85. For no specific reason the pc returned to windows after the installation of the new driver.

I wrote a new message to Leadtek because i still don't have a clue why the versions between 7x.xx and 81.85 wouldn't work.

Problem solved

How's your performance with those newer drivers? Any improvement?

You want stability... just use the v56.72 driver and make sure your using DX9c

Oh, make sure to use DRIVER CLEANER before using different drivers

That's kind of what I was slowly getting at. Any driver newer than 56.72 actually slowed my 5950U down substantially.
