  1. hello guys,
    i hope you can help me... i am stuck...
    i installed ForceWare 71.89 for the drivers of Viper v550 becuase on their site Driver for Windows XP does not exist. After i installed the driver the computer works fine, some games work some not anyways but the problem is that when i try to watch any movie, clip or any kind of thing it just crashes my computer, then says Windows has recovered from seriouse error, i send it it The site says Error Caused by Graphics Driver. Well i also read some topics in this forums about drivers for Viper and they all say get Forceware.....
    Please Help me to solve this problem...

    There is a modified nv4-disp inf that should be installed along with the new nvidia drivers. I have to check to see if this card, being rather old, is compatible with the newer forceware drivers. You might try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers.
