Hi there,

I have a 3d Prophet III Ti 500 and Windows XP. On upgrading to any version of the nvidia DetenatorXP drivers beyond version 23.11 I am experiencing problems.

Windows itself is fine, as are any games using OpenGL, but anything using DirectX is not displaying some objects, completely at random, polygon artifacts across the screen and eventually (within at most 2 or 3 minutes) a complete crash to blue screen with nv4dsply.dll being listed as the culprit.

I have tried reinstalling DirectX to no avail, and am now back down to the 23.11s. Is this a known issue, and is there a way I can get the latest nvidia drivers working properly on my system?


I take what n0e says way too seriously

I'm not aware of any issues with the latest drivers, however there might be something in particular about the D Prophet that has a problem with them.

I'd just go ahead and stick wit hthe 23.11 drivers until the next official version is released and then try that.

You're probably not missing out on anything in performance. The lastest version just adds tweaks for a couple of new games like Morrowind.
