Hello!
I have been trying for days to get my 8800gt to work with my 5850, so after hours of failure I removed the 5850, uninstalled all drivers, ran a registry cleaner.

I did the same for the 8800gt to get a fresh start. Today I have JUST the 8800gt installed with the latest legit drivers and STILL GPUZ shows PhysX as not checked. I have it selected in the Nvidia control panel, but sure enough fluidmark is using the cpu for physics.

Is this card just junk!? I am soooo frustrated!!!!!

Attached are the system info and gpuz screens

Have you tried following this guide? Never tried it myself but seems to work for a lot of other people.

Good luck :toast:
