I have a NVidia GeForce 6150LE display adapter. Driver max informed me that the driver needed to be updated. I did so and lost the "Nvidia Display" option when I right click on my desktop. It also changed the display on my Samsung 223GW monitor. I was not able to correct the settings using the Samsung Magictune program. I had to roll back the driver to get it corrected. Any Ideas?
Nvidia Display Driver update(6 posts)
jkhale, just because there is a newer driver available does not mean that you need it. It may be that Nvidia has a newer version of a driver for your system, but the manufacturer of your computer has not certified it's use. You should get the video drivers for your Dell from Dell.
I would only recommend going directly to the chip manufacturer for drivers if the system manufacturer's driver is giving you trouble or lacks features that you absolutely must have.
I could only find the Nvidia desktop manager icon. It had no tab to access video settings. I have the old driver installed now, and all is working well. I was just wondering what happened.
Thanks for your help.
I lost the desktop menu every time I tried to update my drivers too but that was a year ago. Things are much more stable (for me) since SP1 and really have no reason now to update.
Glad to hear things are 'normal'.
Thanks for your help, I think I'll just leave it alone unless I encounter another problem. I don't know why the Samsung software would not let me ajust the screen properly, it just didn't work.
