Nvidia Geforce4 MX 440 and Windows Update

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Vicente Alvarez, Jan 7, 2007.

  1. Vista installed the "Microsoft corporation" drivers for my old Nvidia
    Geforce4 (they don't support OpenGL, but I'm resigned hehe). So, I didn't
    care at all until today...

    Windows Update recieved a new update for my video card today, and it failed
    to install it. The error code was 80070103. The file was 23 megs! So it's
    obviously a new driver for my card!

    I went to Nvidia's website to get it, but it doesn't appear...

    Anyway... Is there anyway to manually install it, not using Windows Update's
    interface? maybe knowing where WU stores the files it downloads, extracting
    and installing drivers manually...

    Any help would be so appreciated!!!

    I would be cautious. Microsoft Update updated my nVidia video drivers and
    set my card back to prehistoric pre vga days. I ended up rolling back the
    update.

    May be that driver is nor for your card. WU is not the Holy See.

    Looks like Nvidia does not provide Vista drivers for old cards, cp.

    (I have a GeForce4 MX440 64 MB by MSI installed with Vista RC2 b5744
    and it works fine - though without Aero, of course. Need no more
    recent driver.)

    May be you wish to look for a GeForce 6200 (not SE, not TurboCache;-).
