  • Possible driver conflict, perhaps with previous driver not being removed completely. It is known that the uninstaller can leave remnants of old drivers. MSI drivers can be buggy.

    It is recommended to use a Driver Cleaner Utility when upgrading drivers but if you do not know what you are doing you can cause other problems.
    It is recommended to read all documentation that comes with these utilities and have full comprehension of the literature. If you do not understand, then I recommend asking further questions or let someone with more experience do it.

    I performed all procedures many times. Use drivers cleaner and then again load 52.14 driver. The result the same - I can't open control panel with loaded 52.14 or 52.16 (nVidia) drivers. May be somthing wrong with this issue?

  • try useing the 52.16 drivers from nVidia

    http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_52.16

    Or this is the best driver out right now 53.03 it is not WHQL approved but work great. IT works with all brands. The driver file will install itself In the programs file eVGADrv file. You can wipe this after the next update with no registry problems.

  • Try MSI's 52.70's :biggthumbsup:...They are by far the BEST drivers ever to be installed on my System......The Funny thing is that the are the first drivers that recognize my FX 5900 Ultras true memory capacity as 256 MB...And not 128 MB like every other NVIDIA Driver Has :idea:.....Sean REILLY875
