- Fixes memory structure issue on glReadPixels() call.

Issue:  nVIDIA graphics do not display video during EFI boot when using a direct DVI connection on primary port.

Root cause: System firmware and video BIOS compatibility issue.

Workaround: Use analog input on primary port.
Solution: HP and nVIDIA are working on a resolution.  This solution may require both a firmware and a video BIOS update. 

Issue:  Dual-display instability using dual DVI inputs.  Secondary DVI display will eventually go into a strobing mode.  If a display refresh is attempted during this period, the monitor will clear to normal temporarily.

Root cause: Driver monitor synch issue with secondary DVI display.

Workaround: Use analog input on secondary port.
Solution: Working with nVIDIA to provide an updated driver to correct this problem. 

Must have HP zx1 AGP GART driver installed.

Note: These drivers are only for Windows XP 64-bit edition.

Note: Before proceeding with your driver installation we suggest you make sure you are installing the latest version available and for the appropriate model/revision and Operating System. We strongly suggest following 'readme' instructions for installing drivers when available. Often restarting your system will be necessary for the new driver to become active and start functioning properly.
