    Yea
    The switch never really worked well anyway
    Ironically I rarely use Nvidia as I dock my laptop with a vidock and gtx 570hd

    I do use Nvidia when I plug in my 3d projector
    Which is why I developed the patch program in the first place

    ComputerCowboy,

    needles to say You really rock with that easy patch!! The Z is now really up to date for modern software which it clearly is not with the stock drivers!!

    Hi Everyone,

    Just installed the Nvidia 340.52 drivers with patch. Install went fine, no errors. Now, I am trying to adjust the colors on my monitor to match, so I right-click on the screen and select Nvidia Control Panel...and nothing happens. It seems I am unable to run Nvidia Control Panel to adjust colors. Does anyone have a similar problem or is there a work-around for this?

    I've gone through quite a few posts on this thread and no concrete hints as to whats wrong thus far.

    Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks!

    Lang

    Update:

    After numerous re-boots, I booted to safe mode, removed the 340.52 drivers using Display Driver Uninstaller, rebooted and re-installed the 340.52 drivers. Seems something was left in the system with the old drivers that prevented Nvidia Control Panel from opening up.

    All is well and good now.
