I hope someone can help me

I have downloaded a game to try but it keep's crashing, the screen goes
black but sound is heard for a few seconds.... Then after about 10 to 15
seconds my monitor goes into standby mode.

The game is Settlers: Heritage of Kings..... I have been to the game
makers web site and forum and this seems to be a problem for a number
people.

I've tried altering antialiasing and anisotropic in the performance
settings but the game still crashs.

I know it's the demo and I by all accounts it still crashs in the full
version.

So I hope someone can help, are there any new drivers planned soon for
the geforce cards or are there others on the market that work with geforce?

cheers

There are many ,many drivers for the fx cards. Try guru3d.com.You can use
just about any version from 43.xx to 7x.xx nvidea drivers.
It would help if you posted which drivers you use now. Enabling AA and AF
probaly wouldn't cause crashing.Just slow framerate.

I am using 66.93 from nvidia and I have also installed Nforce 5.10 also
from nvidia.... Also DirectX 9.0c (needed for game)

I have disabled AA and AF and I think everyone has tried that for the
game.... I think it's a fault on the coding side from UBI, they are
getting stick because they are saying nothing

will have a look at the site you put in your post

I have heard of some problems with the 66.93 drivers. I tried using them
with Gothic 2. The flickering textures were really bad so I was told to try
the earlier(very) 44.03. That fixed the problem 95%. The rest was the fault
of the game I think.
