Can somebody please tell me what the latest up to date driver for Nvidia geforce 8600gt is I currently have version

The reason I ask is because my steam account says this is out of date but I only updated last night.

Thanks in advance for all help

Appears you have the latest. That version failed miserably when I tried it on my recently purchased 7900GS, went back to 94.24 and Steam/HL2 works fine.

Thanks brundle for your speedy reply

Do I have to uninstall old drivers before installing new

download the new drivers to desktop, then remove the old ones with add/ remove on reboot install the new drivers.

It would be advisable, that's what I did.

The latest 162.50 WHQL nVidia driver can be found here:

Some excellent reading on ATi and nVidia drivers removal and new drivers installation can be found at:

Note the mention of Drive Cleaner Pro (freeware) which gets rid of all previous bits and pieces after using Add/Remove of ATi or nVidia drivers.

Stuartli thanks but I am currently still using XP not vista.I will have a look through your other link though.

Brundle when I tried to install 94.24 I got this error message

Not compatable with your current hardware.

I am currently downloading the newest version again 162.18. I am at the moment using the drivers that came on the disk with the GFX card.

Sunny staines if you could please provide a link to the 163.14 version I would be grateful.

I have tried HL EP 1 again on these drivers but again it just crashes at a load up point in the game. I am really dissapointed with this as I feel I have purchased a game that just refuses to work.
