  1. Im a little bit confused as to why you are using a patch cant you just go to the website and download the correct native drivers and install them? Forget the disc the drivers on it will most probably be old version anyway.
  2. There are vista hot fixes to solve problems with nvidia cards, mainly SLI use though.

    Im guessing he is refering to them.
