    Ok Gents, what about these new drivers, is there a refresh rate fix or is it as simple as disabling V-Sync...?????

    I'm running the last version of the 28.32's with the Refresh Rate fix but unable to run 3dMark as a result, just wondered if these newer ones would resolve my benchmark issue but if they are gonna require me to run my games @ 60hz then they can sod off & I'll stick to ones I already have....!!!!

    :D

    I donno if these drivers support the refresh rate fix, but a friend of mine just dwnloaded em and took a 300 point drop in his 3D mark score with them.
    1 thing though, he still uses 98SE.
    Just thought I'de let ya know.

    The official 28.32's won't even install for me. Back to the trusty 27.42's.

    28.32's

    Same here.. I can't get the Det's to install on my XP box either..

    After going through the install routine and re-booting, it defaults back to the previous driver release.. hmm

    Let me know if you find a fix..

    I got them ok here around the same time as I posted them...
    Could see all the tabs..

    Infact the first time I downloaded them they were the original version and not the WHQL certified version - haen't really had any problems with them yet, alot of people do seem to be having problems with them tho... Guess MS decided they needed a few changes in order to get the the WHQL tests....

    Is that good or bad?

    I havent had any probs at all with the 28.32's. I got the ones with the fix so the refresh rate fix works.
    I run a Visiontek Gforce 4 Ti 4600.
    The most Important thing about installing new Dets is to UNinstall your previous driver first. I also get rid of the previous Reg keys just so I feel like I completely uninstalled em :)

    I have had no problem with them either,no drop in mad onion score,no rise either,refresh rate is fine.
    I have tried most detonator drivers and i have found,the best way to install them is through devise manager,upgrade driver,this does the job properly,it uninstalls old ones and installs new.

    Refresh Question

    Everyone always seems to talk about this refresh problem with WinXP and Nvidia drivers. I don't think I have ever had this problem as I am able to set refresh rates up to the max that my monitor will handle. Now my question is this the same thing as only having 60fps in games? I have included a screen shot of my settings/refresh - these are without any refresh fix. Any input would be appreciated to whether I am correct or totally off base on this one.

    Had the same problem, 28.32 Nvidia's wouldn't install. (leadtek Gforce 4, Ti 4400). The new package, Nvidia's 28.32 (26/04/2002) installed perfectly! No refresh-rate problems.
