    Question

  • Previously, with the demo version, the Sean Liming 162.x worked fine.

    This time, with the real version (less random security qfe's since I haven't got ECE access yet.) and 169.21, built in the same way that Sean did his, it seems to drop the ball somewhere.

    However, the disturbing part is that there are no errors logged.

     

    I think it dropped the ball on nv4_disp.dll, but that might be just the control panel.

     

    Manually re-running the setup does not heal it, but update-driver ->... nv4_disp.inf does!

  • The posted SLD is an example for that version of the driver. You would have to update it for any latest version.

  • Just for clarification, my original solution that you are refering to is the NVIDIA installation component?

  • Indeed it is. 162.18 (SJJ) is the name it shows up as.

     

    It is quite mysterious, on 169.21

    device manager -> 8400 gs -> upgrade driver -> have disk -> \NVIDIA\blah\nv4_disp.inf

    and it will work.

     

    Do you think it is worth hand rolling a 169? I traced the nv4_disp enough to know what is going on.
