    I have a new system 2.4ghz with ht and 1 gig of ram but i cannot install windows me and use my geforce fx5600 ultra on it . I will install the drivers and then reboot and all it says is krnl386.exe is missing. I am doing this so I can play a older game called fighting force. Any help would be nice.

    try running the game emulating win98 mode or something like that and see if it helps...

    afaik there should be no problems with teh video card though windows me is a POS... unfortunately :(

    I did try emulated

    I have tried emulated in winxp and tried all patches for winme and all for xp and even all the nvidia drivers for winme but no luck.

    there is an initialisation failure some place but unfortunately I have not used win ME beyond a couple of days so I cant' help you out much there...

    I am going to move this thread to the nvFAQ section we have and see if this gets you more hits... :)

    Found the solution - yeah autographs later. None of the Drivers work except the BETA 52.16 drivers.

    Ironically these solve ME problems but cause problems in every other OS - go figure :D
