    IT APPEARS THE NEW 28.35 DRIVER DOES'NT WORK WITH THE REFRESH RATE FIX AS I EXPECTED AS THE DRIVER IS A LEAST A COUPLE OF MB SMALLER THAN THE OTHER NVIDIA DRIVERS,SOMEONE MENTIONED ON THIS SITE THEY WERE FOR THE LAPTOP GRAPHICS CARD G-FORCE GO,WHICH IS FALSE AS YOU WILL SEE WHEN YOU DOWNLOAD AND READ THE README FILE IT WILL LIST SUPPORTED CARDS ALL THE PAST AND PRESENT DESKTOP CARDS ARE THERE.
    IM STILL HAVING PROBLEM WITH THE REFRESH RATE FIX PROGRAMME CAUSING MY TV-OUT AND GAMES TO SWITCH TO 16-BIT COLOUR AND IN THE CASE OF HARRY POTTER CAUSING P.C TO HANG UP WHEN I TRY AND SELECT THE TAB BACK TO 32BIT COLOUR EVEN THOUGH IT DID RAISE THE REFREASH RATE A GOOD BIT.
    BUT SORRY TO SAY THE NEW 28.35 CAUSED HARRY POTTER TO STAY AT 75HZ AND MAX PAYNE AT 60HZ(SORE HEAD MATERIAL)
    AS WELL AS PLAYING IN 16BIT COLOUR.
    IF ANYONE CAN GET ANY NVIDIA DRIVER TO WORK PROPERLY WITH THE FIX RATE PROGRAMME AND SHOW BOTH TV-OUT AND GAMEPLAY IN 32BIT COLOUR AT HIGHER THAN MICROSOFTS DEFAULT REFRESH RATES PLEASE LET ME KNOW AS MY CHOICE JUST NOW IS PLAYING GAME AT HIGHER REFRESH RATES WITH POOR COLOUR OR PLAYING AT LOW REFRESH RATES AND EXELLENT COLOUR,GETT8ING HEADACHES AFTER A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.
    THIS WILL APPLY TO EVERYONE USING NVIDIA CARDS.

    the 28.35 driver is for laptop cards ONLY

    Someone modified the 28.35's and changed the inf file so that it will support all cards....which they SHOULDN'T have..the driver was not specifically made for the other cards.....

    This is a problem when people release beta drivers...then they mod the INF file to make it look like the drivers support all cards...then they mod the nv4disp.dll to support refresh rate fix..and then we all wonder why stuff doesn't work

    so if anyone has problems with the 28.35 it is because they are for MOBILE geforce ONLY...thats what they were designed and optimized for..the NV17m chipset..and if you want to get around the whole refresh rate BS, just disable V-sync

    FIX RATE DRIVER

    THANKS FOR THE SWIFT REPLY,I THOUGHT SOMETHING WAS AMISS WITH THE DRIVER BEING 2MB SMALLER THAN USUAL.
    BUT I HAD THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM WITH THE 28.32 DRIVER AND PREVIOUS ONES.
    WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT DISSABLING AS IM NOT TO CLUED UP ON MESSING AROUND WITH SETTING IN MY DRIVERS.
    AND TO BE UPFRONT DO YOU KNOW ANYWAY I CAN GET THE 28.32 AND REFRESH RATE FIX TO WORK IN 32BIT COLOUR IN ALL GTAMES AND TV-OUT MODE AS WITH ALL MY DRIVER IN THE PAST THAT I DID'NT MESS UP WITH THE REFRESH FIX?
    I AGAIN THANK YOU FOR ANY INPUT.
    (PS. IF YOU LAY OUT ANY INSTRUCTIONS CLEARLY I WILL BE ABLE TO FOLLOW THEM NO PROBLEM EVEV THOUGH IM MIGHT NOT HAVE DONE THIS WITH GRAPHICS DRIVERS BEFORE).
    THANKS.IN MEANTIME IM UNISTALLING REFRESH RATE FIX AND 28.35 DRIVER AND REINSTALLING 28.32 DRIVER AWAITING YOUR INPUT.
