When I try and install the new NVidia Drivers, a message comes up during installation saying that my video card "hasnt gone through testing" or something closely resembling that. It then prompts me to either stop installation or resume. I picked stop becuase it was strongly recommended.

Any suggestions?

"-When in doubt, empty your magazine.
-Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than you are.
-Never forget that your weapon was made by the lowest bidder.
-If your attack is going really well, it's an ambush.
-No plan survives the first contact intact.
-All 5 second grenade fuses burn down in 3 seconds." Excerpt from Murphy's Laws

Where did you get the drivers?

I used a link from a topic, more specifically...

Thats MS's driver certification. Keep in mind that until a couple years ago no driver was ever certified. MS has tried to do that to keep driver quality up (or alternatively get their grubby maulers into yet another area of computing regulation).

In any case, nVidia tends to release drivers without certification on some occasions and with certification later (or with a more substantial update). Read around and see if the drivers you've downloaded are the good stuff.

always get them from NVIDIA. other places usually spoof them up and then put them up for download. I have always had problems with the drivers from 3d guru because they are always tweaked already with out my knolledge.

get them here.

Continue with the driver installation. You will continue to get those messages. As long as the driver comes from the hardware makers site, use it.

That's where I get mine, too, right from the source.

Those look like drivers for XP. Since I have Windows ME, I got a different set.

Just go to http://www.nvidia.com


and go through the steps to download the drivers to fit your system.

And remember to turn anti-virus off.

I've never had any problems installing Nvidia drivers.

Just turn off "Driver certification" in the DXDIAG window.

You might consider using Detonator RIP to completely get rid of all traces of previous drivers.

What do y'all think of Detonator RIP? I used it for the first time last night, but couldn't tell how well it worked, because you only know if you first have problems and then it fixes them...

I've checked my DXDIAG.TXT, looks good. I booted up in safe mode, opened the device manager and found no ghost drivers. I'm thinking maybe nVidia has addressed the problems with nVidia drivers not being totally uninstalled. I haven't had any residual driver parts since 30.82.

Not arguing, just wondering if maybe nVidia finally figured it out. The funny part it is Detonators never would work on Win2K or WinXP until recently. Ironic if now that we don't need them we have them... LOL

I downloaded the RIP just in case, but haven't run it.

Thanks for the heads up on the RIP at guru3d.com
