Help 6600gt!!!!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
My friend has a 6600gt and he just reformatted... installed the newest drivers from the website... he keeps getting this instead of the control panel: he can't change any settings either... they all go back to default even after he clicks apply



We've reinstalled the drivers, tried diff drivers, nothing is working!

Well the newest drivers definitely WON'T support such an old card like the 6600GT, you'll have to find out which was the last valid driver for the card if you're going to run updated drivers

6800 works well with the 158.19 Z-Mod'd Drivers - Add NVTweak and RivaTuner 2.06, they overClock well.

The 6800 also will do the 171.xx drivers well with nTune, tried the 174.xx drivers, they lagged alot - right now i'm back on the 158.19 and cooking..
