I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I have heard some people mention that these Omega drivers will improve the performance of your video card, but since they are not officially supported by ATI I thought I'd do a little research before trying them out. So, I was wondering if anyone has tried them, and if so, what did you think? Are they stable? Do they really help performance?

I am running Windows 98SE, and my video card is a Sapphire 9600 Pro.
 

A:Omega Drivers?

They are stable, but I saw no real performance gains. My frame-rate was 50% higher with the Optimized Ngo Drivers.

The DNA Drivers actually slowed things down considerably.

TechConnect Magazine now has taken over the Ngo drivers.

Your best bet is to use the standard ATI drivers and tweak them with the ATI Tool. I seem to get the best performance when the memory frequency is increased slightly to match that of the onboard CPU. But what works well on one system can be very different on another. I wouldn't suggest any significant over-clocking.

Edit: I figured out what I was doing wrong.

I cannot get the Nvidia Omega drivers installed. I have Win98SE. I've tried uninstalling the "Nvidia" 45.23 drivers, in safe mode, reboot>install the standard AGP drivers then go thru Device Manager>Display Adapters>Update>pointed to the directory I installed the "Omega" 45.23 Performance drivers and Windows would not recognize them to install.

I also installed the "Nvidia" 45.23 drivers then go thru Device Manager>Display Adapters>Update>pointed to the "Omeaga" Performance directory>click install and I get a message to insert the orginal Nvidia compatability disk-1 and that as far as I can get.

I've never been able to update Nvidia drivers thru Device Manager and have uninstalled in safe mode rebooted and then installed the updated Nvidia drivers. My computer came with GeForce2 MX/MX 400 installed.

If anyone is using the Nvidia_Omega drivers, please let me know how you installed them.

The Nvidia 56.43 drivers are a little buggy for my system and the 45.23 drivers can be a little sluggish playing Uru-Ages Beyond Myst.

The Omega "Performance" drivers are supposed to be preset for better speed.

A:Omega drivers

I've installed the Omega drivers a few times with no problem in XP. Unzip the files and run the executable. In some cases when trying to install and it asks for the original disk, go ahead and stick it in the drive as there are some files that it needs to reference for whatever reason. Once you restart the drivers will be the Omega version and you will like the results.

Well hello everyone, I have the latest driver updates from the regular ATI developer website for my radeon 1650, and from what i hear, when you update drivers, its best if you uninstall EVERY trace of the display unit or driver.

I am currently having some technical issues with 3 games ( call of duty 4, deer hunter 2005, and freestyle street basketball ) which are all seeming to be graphics related.

I want to test out the omega drivers, but i dont know how to install them.

Do i

A.) uninstall current drivers, then install 7.10 and install omega drivers OVER that?
B.) just install the omega drivers

the only reason i think A could be acceptable is because the omega drivers were listed like 3.xxxx.xxx or whatever and then off to the side it said ( 7.10 )

Could someone fill me in? give me a ATI card for dummies guide

Also, if i do have to uninstall all the driver related things, could you give me a list of what im looking for?

thank you very much, i really appreciate this community.

Hey guys, new to the site and figured I'd say what up!
Also have a question...

I have been using Omega drivers for a while now.
Recently built a new PC and am running the Windows XP 64bit O/S..
I am using the ATI Radeon 9800pro 128 Video Card with the 64bit drivers.
I loved the Omega drivers because it had a sweet overclocking utility built in.

Does anyone know if the Omega Drivers will work with my new 64bit XP opperating system?
I emailed omega but haven't got a response back and I can't find anywhere on the Omega site that has any info regaurding this issue.
And/or is there a stand alone overclocker that I can use if not? What would you recommend?

Thanks in advance!

A:Omega Drivers for Windows XP 64bit....

Never mind I figured it out. But for those of you interesed ATI has a 64 bit driver for it's cards and "Radlinker" has a stand alone over clocking utility available also for the 64 bit OS.
Although still in testing phase it worked well for me. Went from stock settings of 105fps (using the CS-Source Stress Test) to slightly over clocking and getting 118avg fps in the same stress test.
I left the Radlinker link at home but just Google "Radlinker" and it's the very first link that pops up.
Hope this helps..

Hello,

Ive decided to go back to using the ATI drivers and am currently trying to remove all traces of the Omega drivers from my Win2000 system.
First I used the Omega full uninstall menu option but that left ATI tray tools so I turned that off in the startup as it was creating an "access Violation" error. I also removed the Omega Program Files folder and did a RegClean and Driver Clean ATI.
But now when I startup the system is asking for ati2mtag.sys and still labels the new device as Omega.
How do I completely erase all trace of the Omega drivers so that I can reinstall the ATI ones? Please help.

I installed the Omega drivers for my Radeon 9600XT because I was having issues with a game. The drivers work great and everything for my gaming purposes, but now I've noticed that if I go to Display Settings my max resolution is 1280x1024, it used to have many more options above that! I know that 1280x1024 was the one that i was currently using, but there were other options and I'd like to be able to use them.

The Omega website said that unchecking the "Use DCC Information" under Display properties in Advanced would allow you to see all of the higher resolutions w/o the desktop panning, but I think that that's a separate issue and it didn't have an effect on my system either way.

Anyone have any ideas or deal with this problem before?

Hello. I have a MSI NF750-G55 motherboard which came with Nvidia sound drivers. Windows update even provided an update for the nvidia drivers once I connected to the internet.

However, I also know that there are Realtek sound drivers. Will my system be more stable if I just install the nvidia drivers or should I install the realtek HD drivers too? Or would having 2 sound drivers cause freezes?

I appreciate any advice. So far all my sound works great so that isn't an issue, and I don't really care about having the realtek audio manager.

A:Nvidia sound drivers, realtek drivers, or both?

Basically, if it isn't broke, don't fix it.

The sound is a Realtek chip on the motherboard, thus the Realtek would be the first choice, but if other supplied drivers work and you have all functions there is no need for additional drivers. The Microsoft drivers are actually Realtek drivers (but Microsoft can be several versions behind due to their validation process).

Hello World!
I have been having trouble with my computer. Earlier this week i reinstalled my XP partition on a XP/Ubuntu dual booting system. The audio would clip and the computer would ultimately freeze. Now to trouble shoot the problem i started googling and heard it might be my PSU (which was deffective) so i got a new one, it works great computer's now a quiet happy camper. However windows is not. Now by installing and uninstalling drivers one by one I have found out that the trouble with my windows environment is that the new ATi card's drivers are craptastique or are clashing with my Nvidia drivers(for the built in stuff of my M2N-E motherboard). I do not have these problems in my Ubuntu environment which further strengthens my belief that it's a Windows driver issue. That would also explain my 10005 system event error (10005 is Dcom failing)

Alright, here's the deal.
? Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit, with SP2 RC.
? nVidia Gforce 9600 GT

Never had problems updating the drivers to their latest versions (downloaded from nvidia.com) until I de-installed Spybot (that crappy anti-spyware thing).

After that, everytime I try to install (after a deinstallation) or update the current drivers nothing happens. Install runs fine, copies files, reboots and voila... same drivers as before.

The only drivers that actually I was able to install were the 178.13 via the internal Windows Update. That's it. If I don't install them, the VGA card is shown as "vgasave" in the Device Manager.

I'm quite fed up with this and planning to reinstall Vista, but backuping everything up is going to be a real hassle, that's why I'm trying to find out a possible solution to this beforehand.

Any suggestions?.

Hey all: Nvidia has just posted (well at least recently) new forceware (video) and nforce (chipset) drivers for my 7950 video card and 650 sli mobo. The chipset drivers have not been updated since January so this may help those with driver issues.

I have both packages installed and so far no issues. If you run Windows update it will report a new sata controller driver which is dated 7/2/2007. Not sure why it does this, but the driver appears to be the same.

FWIW, sandra benchmarks increased dramatically for my sata 2 seagate drive. Before it would benchmark out no better than a sata 1 drive. Now it holds it own against sata 2 benchmarks. Have not seen any real-world speed increases.

Hello, a while ago, I downgraded my Sony Vaio VGN-FE41E from Vista to XP, and had some trouble finding proper drivers, but through some forums and websites, I managed. I had them all stored on my external hard drive in case something happened and I needed to do it again, but sadly it was stolen a while ago and I don't remember what I did and where I managed to find the nvidia drivers, because to get it to work, I had to find drivers for other models, as my Sony model isn't compatible with the Windows XP.

Now there is this warning popping up that says

"The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\NVDESK32 is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your installation disk"

When this happened before all I had to do was uninstall the nvidia drivers and reinstall them again, but I don't remember which drivers I need to install, because of the lack of compatibility of my Sony VGN-FE41E with Windows XP.

My question is, does anyone know which drivers I need to download and where to download them from, and possibly how to prevent this from happening again?

Hope the post wasn't too confusing, i'm clearly not a computer wizz and have some trouble understanding any of this, if you need more information let me know!

BAD! you use COMPATIBLE resilution, i cant do anything in safe mode...and i dont want to buy a new moniter.. anyone help me out here?

A:New nvidia drivers >_>

Hello Kelthias,
Have you tried to roll back the driver ?.
Go to Device manager, open Display adapters and right click on your Display Adapter, choose Properties.
There will be a "Roll Back Driver" option that will install the previous driver.
Not the best solution, but it will get you going again.
Hope this helps, good luck and post your results.

Hi everyone I just installed the newest Nvidia drivers and I also use coolbit's so I can overide the refresh rate's in game's , the newest drivers wont change the refresh rate in a couple of game I play like Tiger woods 2006 and gta sa. So I went back to 81.98 forceware driver's and everything works.

Was wondering if there is a fix for these newer driver's ?

Hi Derrick

I dont have a fix for you but it has been my experience with Nvidias drivers that new is not always the best, I only have a geforce fx 5500 card and I am using a driver that is about 18 months old, if I update to newest to the driver, the display is very flickery and not as good,

If I install any video driver updates beyond that which WU wants me to have I end up with an inferior 1280 x 1024 resolution and a grey taskbar and everything is squished. I end up with no nVidia control panel and no higher resolution or landscape setting possible.
I've read the release notes for 181.20 and 181.22 beta and they both supposedly support 1680 x 1050 x 32 @ 60hz W/S for my 7600GS card.
So what gives?
I seem to be doomed to be forever stuck with 179.23, not that I suppose it really matters.

New Drivers

Where exactly are the new NVidia drivers and has anyone actually tested the Quincunz anti-alaising and its impact on performance. I have a Visiontek Ti200 o/c'd at 470 mem 205 core. Tried to run Quincunz on Jedi Knight but the performance hit was to much. Well at any rate is someone tests this please let me know. Thanks....
 

A:New Nvidia Drivers ?

I would say new NVIDIA drivers are at none other than nvidia.com.

As for testing them, not me since I don't have any NVIDIA cards.

New Beta 29.42 Detonator Drivers

Are these what you're talking about?

I have a Fujitsu L1010 laptop. The video card is an Intel 4500MHD. I just looked at the startup programs and noticed that there is an Nvidia driver (NVIDIA Compatible Windows Display Driver, Version 174.90). There is also an Nvidia service in the Services section displaying nvvsvc.exe. I was wondering what those were for when I have an Intel 4500MHD and not an Nvidia card.

A:Nvidia Drivers?

The laptop you have has a 9300M GS graphic card built in, Fujitsu L1010 : FUJITSU Australia this site will all so explane about the Intel 4500MHD: Notebookcheck: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD (GMA X4500MHD), 174.90 is nVidia's driver version they are up to 182.XX drivers now.
