Software Description

Windows Vista 32-bit

Attention - this is the OLD download section of, click here to visit the new and up-to date one.

Props to laptopvideo2go for finding these drivers. The most anticipated driver ever has finally been released/leaked or what ever you may like to call it. GeForce 8800 Users can now rejoice in finally having support in Vista which is not even released yet. I wonder if this or a slightly later build will be included with Vista or will become a Windows Update Download.

The Control Panel is very lacking in any usability.

There is no:

  • Powermizer page
  • Resolution page
  • TV control page
  • Overlay page

Control Panel takes ages to pop up. (another install of driver has made this shorter, but still takes ages)
Resolution always resorts to 1024x768 after a Standby/Resume.

It does have:

  • Rotate Page
  • Colour Page
  • Display Configuration page (Dualview Clone etc.)
  • 3D Settings
  • Image settings

Now that the x64 version and nTune only work with x86 there is of course no Overclock page
There are good news though: this driver at least detects my LCD TV via HDMI (DVI) with it's proper name, 95 series drivers don't. But some small issues still exist here as well, the TV MUST be selected first, then LCD panel else the TV just displays a blank page.

Signature = "$Windows NT$"
Provider = %NVIDIA%
ClassGUID = {4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Class = Display
CatalogFile = NV_DISP.CAT
DriverVer = 12/14/2006,

This driver in it's original state is for 8800 series desktop GPUs only. Also there is no SLI support yet in Vista, but at least your have some support now. A modded INF (supplied in the download) is needed unless you have a 8800 GPU.

This is BETA in it's highest form people ! Treat and respect it as such.
