  1. I use a Geforce 2 gts.

    I wasn't having any problems with 30.82 drivers , but once i installed the new 40.72 with the new features ...( NvieW n so on)

    I have a problem of the monitor giving blinks at 1 min intervals.

    This seems to disturbing so i reverted back to the old drivers.

    Is there a way to work around this problem.

    PS: (before i installed new ones, I uninstalled the old ones first )

    I tried it out again without unstalling the old drivers but still no difference)

    Anyone having similar problems as me ?

    I tried the recent one 41.09 , still the same...

    The best thing to do is go back to the 30.82 drivers. The newer drivers really don't do anything to improve older cards as far as I've seen and sometimes they degrade the performance of older cards.

    I have tried some of the newer versions on my GF2 MX400 and nothing above 28.32 did anything to improve the card and many of them actually caused me problems, reverting back to the 28.32 always fixed it. If the 30.82 drivers are working best for you, then stick with them.

    I got a GF2 GTS too and was gettin some problems with my 29.32's so I reverted back to the 28.32's and everything is Hunky Dorey :). As Stormbringer said, with the older cards there aren't really any benefits with the newer drivers so if the 30.82 work best, stick with them.

    Are the 30.82's better for you then the 28.32's? I find them really stable.

    /me downloads the 30.82's.....
