    Unhappy Help with new 6600 card and driver.

    Greetings.

    I purchased an Gigabyte GV-N66256DP display card and found that I have to choose "Geforce 6800" as my card to successfully install the driver. And I'm stuck with 61.76 driver.

    I can't update to another version without crashing(All the other drivers detect it's a Geforce 6600. Works fine in 2D but not any 3D games and access Nvidia property in display. The monitor will just goes black and the system will hang) and I got the following error message:"The problem seems to be the cause: nv4_disp STOP: 0x000000EA (0x860BBA48, 0x85F18138, 0x8604D628, 0x00000001)
    Is there anything I need to configure in the motherboard's BIOS?

    Here is my systen spec and drivers info. :
    MSI KM4M-V motherboard, AMD AthlonXP 2800++, 1GB PC2700 RAM, Samsung Syncmaster 450b(T) 15 inch monitor, I-CUTE WIN-4801SPX-X 480W power-supply.

    Drivers: VIA HyperionPro Version - 5.06A 24 November 2005, VIA Vinyl Audio driver - Multilingual Version - 6.20M, VIA PIDE/SATA RAID Drivers & Utility date 2005-6-14, VIA 10/100 LAN Drivers date 2005-6-23, Nvidia 61.76 driver.

    Here's my mobo's BIOS setting for AGP:

    "Advanced Chipset Features
    AGP & P2P BRIDGE CONTROL
    AGP Aperture size -128M
    AGP Mode -8X
    AGP Driving Mode -Auto
    AGP DRIVING VALUE -DA
    AGP FAST WRITE -Disabled

    What drivers have you tried? I see Gigabyte offers the 77.72 driver for that card but have you tried the newer drivers from Nvidia.com? Also are you uninstalling the old drivers before attempting to install new ones?

    Updated the driver to 77.72 WHQL from gigabyte site. Poor perfomance. Will randomly crash. I had tried other such 77.72, 77.77, 81.85, 81.95 and all failed. I did uninstall first and reboot to safe-mode and use driver-cleaner to clean the rest of the files before install any new driver. And I also create restore-point just in-case something bad happen.

    Below are some screenshots of my current setting (61.76 driver)

    Last time I ran into a nv4_disp stop error it turned out to be my memory that was bad and had nothing to do with the video card or drivers. It may be worth your time to run memtest86+ http://www.memtest.org/ . I see no mention of your O/S but I assume you are using XP?

    Yes I'm using WinXP pro with SP-1.
    The damn thing is funny. Whenever I choose "6600" as the correct version, it works. But no luck trying to play any 3D game or the monitor screen will goes black and the system hang and here comes the BSOD.. o.0 (hell, it even happens when loading the 3D menu )

    I finally send the card back to the shop. They did the same test as I did and we all declared it's the card's fault. Now I have to wait for another replacement... :(
