I'm wondering why Nvidia is always releasing beta drivers. It seems like it's always beta. Why can't they just do something right for once so that we don't need to change drivers all the time?!?:mad:

hah, if you want it to be "right" dont use beta's
Simply download official drivers off the nVidia site. and voilla all is well!

tbh, as long as i can see the screen, im happy, so i just use either the latest det's ive downloaded previous to an install, or whatever's on the site after a fresh install. Once thats installed theres no need to bother updating, no matter how many Beta Drivers nVidia decide to pelt at the net. :)

Yeah, you're all right guys. But come to think of it, Beta Det this Beta Det that and every time it adds 2 more points to your 3D Mark scores. But WTF it still is pathetic.:mad:

As far as i know nVidia dont actually release the beta's officially, its probably some techy coder who's proud of his 2 points who leaks them to the net :D

i dont use any drivers that are not on the nvidia website, also the constant updtaing to the current nvidia drivers does improve performance, so dont use the drivers that come with windows xp, they suck

if you care to elaborate why exactly you've said that ...

If you dont play games at all (like myself) then the default XP driver is fine, some old det i have on a cd-r from moanths ago is fine. As long as i can see my desktop im happy.

Anyone still have that Run DLL error with this version?

Anyone know how to get around it?

I might aswell reinstall the older ones. I can't tell a difference anyway, I hardly play games.

Just ZSNES now and then! ;)

It happens when you open the Settings>Advanced>(GFXCardName) tab on display properties... (The one that has the spinning logo and the file versions)

Yey, I got the newer ones, the 40.71's and I don't get the error anymore, but the logo seems a bit off-centre...

Ah well, I'd rather have an off-centre logo thatn an error! :)
