Faded video with 56.72

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.videocards.nvidia (More info?)

Installed new video driver 56.72 on a TI4600 under XP P4 2.8GHZ --
3dmark2001 score droped about 500 points -- video quality just not there --
tried numerous controls to get quality back to my original appearance with
no luck (slightly wased out look with some slight jagged edges)). Gave up --
back to 52.16 and all is right. Also regardless of driver or overclock
settings I'm getting random game freeze and critical errors in Far Cry --
any help appreciated.

    You should be using the 45.23 driver for stability with that older non-FX
    card.

    You do know that the Ti4600 is NOT a DX9 part, right? Even though it runs
    with DX9 installed; my Ti4200 would not even run Far Cry. I decided to
    upgrade to an FX5700 and all is well now.

    You could have saved a lot of money by just running Driver Cleaner 2...

    Hmm, funny, I've just completed Far Cry using my TI4200. Had to upgrade to
    the 53.03 drivers to play on Low detail, but had texture problems at higher
    settings. Installed the 56.72 drivers 2 days ago, and even on Very High the
    game runs fine (albeit at around 25fps, but just enough to be playable).
    Playing on Medium is great, gives a good balance between smooth graphics and
    stunning visuals. High just introduces a little jerkiness when there's a lot
    going on. Rest of system is XP2400, 1GB DDR400 running in single channel
    mode on an Asus A78NX-X board.

    Funny, the 53.03 and 56.72 has been very stable on my Ti4200. In fact, the
    56.72 drivers fix issues I had with textures in Far Cry in all previous
    drivers I'd tried. The 56.72 drivers are *not* just for FX cards - the
    readme clearly states fixes for 4MX and 2Ti issues, and list other non-FX
    fixes in previous 55 series driver releases.

    Did you go to Safe or VGA mode before unistalling the old driver,
    or dod you bother uninstalling at all ? 52.16 was NOT a good
    release...

    Try Driver Cleaner 2.0 and report back.
