This isnt a huge issue but the X-Micro Ti4200 refuses to install the latest Nvidia detonator driver (28.32). The one that came on the cd is based on the 28.32 and installs fine; but I'd like the opportunity to install the Nvidia driver as well as Im sure they would update their driver more often than X-Micro.

Has anyone else who owns this card come across this issue under XP and if so How did u get around it?

Thanks in Advance

Which way are you going about installing the drivers?

Funny, I can use other drivers. About the worst that happens to me is that I get a window that pops up when loading certain versions that states that it's not a Microsoft Approved driver. I tell it to load anyway and carry on from there.

If you're having a problem with only one driver, then it may be corrupt. Go to another website that offers it and try that one. It happens like that occassionally.

Windows XP Certified, the biggest crock of **** ever - Do you realise it costs companies $10,000 US to certify each driver, and we are talking each new release not just the one type of driver. Now you know why not all drivers are certified.

Well ive tried the device manager angle where you choose update driver and after extracting the latest nvidia driver from the nvidia site to a folder (all files are present) it refuses to see a driver there

whereas If i tell it to go to the winxp folder on the X-micro CD...no hassles

Ive disabled the driver signatures etc but with no luck.

It just doesnt want to use anything but the x-micro driver on the CD ( ive tried everything...giving up...going to trust x-micro to update regularly

:flames: Ok, Ive been looking and looking of where to buy this X-micro Ti4200, and I have even emailed the company with no sucess:flames:

Please tell me where to buy it. I want the 128mb version which has VIVO capabilities. :confused:

Please where? and How much did you pay for yours?

thanks Topper. Yeah, I just ordered mine, and cant wait to receive it. I think this one is a bit better than the leadtek one, since it actually has also good heatsinks but ViVo features as well. Cant wait to get it. Just sent my money order today..


best,

:cry:

its actually not in retail stores yet, and I got it from a rep from xmicro. Its actually a model unit, i know the price is a bit high for 190 bucks but I think itll be worth it. Ill let you guys know how everything goes. the good thing is that it has all the manuals and bundled software.

Topper, i just ordered a X-Micro Ti4200 128MB in Aus too. And i was wonderin how high of a overclock u could get and wat 3DMarks score do u have?!?!?

Topper

I'm running it on WinXP / Athlon 1.8+ XP / 512Mb DDR and I get a 3Dmark score of around 8800 marks @ 1024x768 32bpp. (very smooooth)

I havent tried overclocking it yet (maybe after games start slowing down dramatically...:p )

I hardly get any slowdown in any current games atm. Usually can run anything at full res / full detail etc etc

BTW anyone had the issue with the driver which is explained in the 1st post ? ** back to topic **

just got an emailed saying the card is out of stock!:( gotta wait!

Anyway, dont bother with those drivers, go to www.guru3d.com and download the new 29.42s! Real good, improved my mark by 132 points and has better IQ!

When I first ordered my X-micro 128Mb card from www.auspcmarket.com.au I had to wait for it to come into stock as well.

But it was worth the wait ;)

Auspcmarket are quite exspensive....

You should always check these two sites before you buy something, they usually have great prices:

Zone Computing (http://www.zonecomputing.com.au)

Secret Net Computers (http://www.secret.com.au/computers)

both are relyable as well...:thumb:

You think the latest driver dated in 6/4/02 will work...the 29.42 worked fine with xp...: peace2:
I used mine on a 4600 on XP...SoOoOo i dunno...it shouldn't do anything ...and if it does...go back and use the 28.32..:)

Well, on my previous GF2 Ti, i used 22.80s (which were the best) and then i got the 29.42s and got a increase! I'm using the 29.42s now and haven't ran into any problems soo far, no infinate loop or anything! Heck, i didn't even take out the x-micro cd from the box!: :crazy:

Anyway, just try them, have fun with ur card!! I am!:cheers:

I just bought an X-Micro T4200 128 MB from the fellow below. He treated me real well and the price is right. I paid $190.00 US including shipping and received the card two days after I ordered it.

He doesn't have online ordering yet, but the email/phone corresponce was excellent. :D

The 128MB versions use a slower memory to the 64MB versions to keep costs inline so they don't overclock as far. :smokin:

My X-Micro 128MB is using 4ns ram and can overclock to 540.
