NVidia drivers 82.69

Recommended Posts

and remember,more than 256mb card can't work on win98.

>NOPE ! It's a hoax!

Maybe it works for AGP cards but I have never seen working PCI-E VGA with >256M. E.g. similar version of 2 VGAs, same chip, same manufacrurer, 256M worked but 512M not.

>At last I made it!!!

>If you remember in my previous post I had problems with an AGP 6800GS 512MB card under W98 with some MoBo. Casually (tampering with >Bios) I solved:

>Spread Spectrum: DISABLED

Spread Spectrum option has absolutelly nothing to do with memory mapping or so. This is option for clock generator. Spread spectrum means that PLL clock chip will produce clock signals with smoother edges to minimize EMI radiation from mainboard but it can affect system stability esp. on overclocked systems. So I always disable it. It was just coincidence that it made your vga working.

hey does this drivers work good????

Well, I've been using them for over a year and a half with no issues.

I do however have an older GeForce FX 5500 card...

If you have a 7 or 8 series card, then results may vary.

Does anyone here succesfully use this driver with an old GeForce4 Ti4200 VTD8X (128MB)? I have such a card on my system, manufactured by MSI and I could never use any driver other than the manufacturer-provided ones, which are extremely old (latest available is 45.32, built August 2003).

Any other drivers I've tried - official ones from nVidia and this one here - would completely kill Direct 3D capabilities. Could anyone please offer an insight or anything to help me update the driver to a more recent version (maybe this unofficial one)?

I must mention the card advertises AGP 8x capability but my mobo (Soyo SY-6VBA133) can only support AGP 2x.

I've just bought a MSI Geforce 7600GT 512MB AGP Silent for my Win98se/WinXP dual boot system. The drivers work well with Win98se except 3 points:

1. In display properties, the tab says "Nvidia (unknown)", but if you actually press the tab to go deeper to the properties it recognizes it properly as 7600GT, isn't it curious? Anyway, it is just a cosmetic issue...

2. The only REAL issue: The system hangs during shut-down... Isn't there anything it can be done about this? It is said that the last driver which let the system shut-down correctly is 77.72. Can't we find out which .dll or .vxd or anything is the cause of the problem in 82.69 and try to exchange it with the same one of the 77.72 driver and see if this eliminates the problem, IF the drivers allow this exchange of course and not cause more problems?...

3. My solution is to re-boot instead of shut-down and then boot WinXP (I use Partition Magic's Boot Magic) and later shut-down from WinXP. BUT: occasionally I've noticed that I can't even re-boot from Win98se (the system hangs as well)!

If you could find out and correct the shut-down and sometimes re-boot problem (it ocurred with 81.69 and my old Geforce2 MX 400 too) the drivers would be simple PERFECT!

I even tried to modify 77.72 by adding the appropriate strings for Geforce 7600GT in the .inf file (VERY CAREFULLY) to make them work with my card, but I couldn't... And even if I could make 77.72 to work with my card, I don't know if they would support wide resolutions since my monitor uses 1680x1050 (82.69 work perfectly!)

Anyway I have to say a big THANK YOU for your drivers! I'm not asking for more, I just wrote my experience, although I'll always hope for the correction of the problems I (and most others) mentioned.

P.S.: The shut-down patch from Microsoft doesn't correct the problem, I had it already installed.

A 512MB video card is not recommended for Win9x (except maybe for WinME), as debated around.

I have the same problem except mine doesnt hang while restarting, so I shut it down by pressing the power button after the keyboard blinks. (7900GS 256MB)

I can also re-start normally. Only rare the system hangs while re-starting as well.

There is not any problem with 512MB video RAM in Win98se! I don't know where this was mentioned and everybody is still writing about this! Maybe because of the problem of 512MB system RAM in Win98se, when if you install more you have to limit vcache. But all this has nothing to do with video RAM...

Anyway my system has 512MB of system RAM as well (it is max for my 815 chipset), and apart from the shut-down problem it works very well! I even played a few games for hours and there was no problem at all! Where do you thing the 512MB of video RAM should give me a problem?

I can also confirm no problem with 512MB of video RAM on win98SE (using GEForce 6200/512MB).
