    Hi Cal Bear '66; Delboy again :eek:}

    Installed this driver, after installation and before restart, got message
    Software might not have installed properly. Reinstall using recommended
    settings? I said No. Installation seems to have gone ok & video is ok
    AFAICT. Any comments?

    A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely
    foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

    I haven't had time to install it myself, but in the past whenever I got those
    messages with either software or driver installs, I've answered yes and have yet
    to get in trouble. But if thing go wrong, you can just reinstall. I've never
    seen those messages on nVidia installs however, usually just with older
    software.

    The last few nVidia WHQL video drivers that I have installed have gone through
    the routine of removing older drivers first before installing the newer drivers
    (even though I had manually uninstalled the drivers). The last beta driver I
    installed did not automatically remove the older drivers so I had to abort the
    installation and manually remove the older drivers. Does this beta remove older
    drivers as part of the installation?

    Don't think it did Cal B, but then my grey cells aren't rubbing together
    like they used to :eek:)
    But then the installation didn't go exactly like the instructions given in
    the link; although it went through apparently straightforwardly.
