    I have installed the newest drive on nVidia site and have had no issues. Keep in mind though, I am not a gamer but, no issues none-the-less...

    I am updating this post b/c there is a newer one (version 258.69 June 29, 2010); I haven't installed that one..

    I have a Gateway FX laptop with GForce 8800M GTS. I have installed the latest nvidia driver (258.96 - 2010-07-19) but it makes my Starcraft 2 crash a lot. I am downloading the old 191.00 to see if it works. Any suggestions?

    Crashing in EQ2 using 195.62 with my p172fx (vista 32) with no clocking at all ugh. Can't use the new 258 Nvidia one as they're for 64.

    Gonna try the 197.16. Anyone else with a similar setup playing EQ2 with pointers on which driver, speeds etc?
    Thanks

    Okay, that one didn't hold. I need to try a different one.
    I'm able to uninstall the Phys monitor that was installed with it. But using the Add/Remove Program from CP doesn't do anything for removing the actual video driver. Suggestions? Safemode uninstall maybe?
    Thanks

    FYI,
    260.99 working good on my P-171X FX, it should work on all of the P-68XXFX too. It works on my P-7805U FX, but I have not had any issues like my older models have had.
