as soon as i download latest graphics drivers(61.77) for the above card graphics go all to pot
thought it was direct x 9.0c contained in upgrade . have downloaded dx 9.0c by itself no problems .
anyone got a clue what the problem is

Not exactly sure what your question is - punctuation would help.

However, Direct X and Nvidia are not connected.

Direct X is Microsoft and usually available through the Windows Update site.

Nvidia is best obtained from the Nvidia site, not from Windows update.

I believe that you have to uninstall your previous Nvidia driver before installing a new one (but set a system restore point first).

with nvidia drivers you MUST close anti-virus before installing. This is vital. I suggest you try again and close all opened programmes before installing and yes, unistall previous drivers as well.

I have Nvidia GeForce 5200 43/54 24Apr2003 but I decided to leave well alone and not update to avoid trouble. Nvidia suggests that one should get the update via the coputers OEM which in my case is a Dell Dimension 3600.

sorry....error. That should read Dimension 4600.

I had a problem a few days ago with the latest Gforce4 driver (61.76) which caused major system crashes, it turned out to be a known problem with the new driver and went back to 56.64. I think Nvidea have made a fluff of the new drivers.

there are beta drivers available which apparently sort a lot of problems out on nvidia cards. I've been using the beta driver no problem and gained a performance boost (small).

Dan the confused: agreed!!

61.76 working perfectly here.

61.77 working perfect here on a geforce 4 ti 4200 - was prompted to switch off anti virus during install

I read that with xp there was no need to run detonater destroyer first - good site - click here

have just purchased a fx5600 ultra off ebay for my son's pc - rebuild coming - hope it performs well.

I tried 61.77 on my Geforce FX 5900 and saw a noticeable slowdown. I went back to the 53.04 I was previously using.
