    playing just cause the game kept stuttering after a while so i thought maybe driver related cos gfx was not overheating (7600gs ddr3 stock clocks of 400/500), decided to update from 94.24 to 163.71

    so dl'd the update did the uninstall, safe mode driver cleaner, install new driver process, when rebooted to desktop i got nothing except the cursor on screen no desktop icons or taskbar, so i thougt summat messed up, did the whole process again, same thing again.
    so maybe the dl'd file was corrupt or something, dl'd the same file again with the same process and guess what, same blank desktop again cept for cursor...:banghead:

    heeelp! where can i find 94.24 drivers again if 163 dont wanna be my freind

    win xp 32-bit btw

    And now you must have found out you installed nVidia drivers for Vista.
    At least you will know not to next time round.
