    I'm having the old refresh rate problem with these new drivers. I've been using nvrefresh, is there a newer version or a better tool to use?

    What can i use......

    Can i use Detonators Destroyer to remove my old nvidia drivers in XP?? i am currently using the 30.82's and i wanna install these 40.41 drivers properly so i can get full performance from my 4200 :D ....... anyone have any good steps to do this?? thx

    RaZoR

    ps.... back to the question at hand, .... is this 25% increase in performance true?? if so, this is BS, the only reason they are releasing these drivers is because of ATI and the KING (9700), meaning that all the other drivers released before were never fully optimized, and have been holding back our GF cards performance hopefully these drivers boost up GF cards performance the way they should be.... its all marketing schemes..... grrrrr

    Check the 3d mark difference between the 30.82 and 40.41
     
  20. When I right click the Desktop -> Properties, Settings Tab, Advanced and then the Geforce Tab I get the error Run A DLL as an App do you want to send M$ a report rather than the Nvidia spinning logo and version numbers. 3D Mark stops near the end too.

    Are they any quicker when they work ?
