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.

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.

Same here. I still got 27.42. I just downloaded the 28.32 from Nvidia.

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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
