so when i installed my EVGA 8600 GT driver (driver that came on the cd with card) i get an intresting message. it says that this card has not passed the windows logo screening test and that installing may make it working eratically. well it sure is in my games, i looked in the dx diagnostic tool and it says The file nv4_disp.dll is not digitally signed, which means that it has not been tested by Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL). You may be able to get a WHQL logo'd driver from the hardware manufacturer. does everyone get this, cause my other old card a BFG 6200 OC PCI said the same thing and it sucked, but my older card a jaton fx 5700 LE never came up with that message
I get that a lot of times as well. But only when I use older drivers on new video cards.

It just means they're not WHQL (Windows High Quality Labs) Certified.It doesn't mean they won't work.

I use beta drivers all the time and they all pop up that message. It just means it hasn't been fully tested and approved by the HQ geeks at Microshaft.
If it runs well for you, don't worry about it. If it runs like crap, find a better driver.
btw - Usually the driver that comes on a disc with a video card is outdated by the time you get it. Go to nvidia.com and get the latest driver.
i got the latest driver and its making my games crash ARG!!:banghead:
Try going back to an older driver, and see if you can find one that works.
how can i get an older driver or where?
Go to the appropriate driver download page on the nVidia site for your card and OS. Down the left you should see an option like 'Windows XP/2000 Driver Archive'. The name will change depending on the OS you chose, but anyway if you click that it will take you to their archive page.
