To take it a step further, I ran my 4200+ on that BIOS level for probably 6 months.

I don't have a point but it was late and confused.gif...Well lets say (because it is true redface.gif) I already have 2002 BIOS installed AND have the new CPU in and running with the BIOS adjusted (multiplyer and core voltage and memory voltage and nothing else) and the only thing I have yet to resolve is the nVidia install/removal debacle...

I could pull the new CPU, put the old one back in and start over

Or stick with 2002 and install nVidia and stay put

Or stick with 2002 and install nVidia and then upgrade to 5002

Or something else...

So since I didn't go straight from A to B to C, what is the best way to get my idiot self back on track kookoo.gif

See if anyone else has opinions on this. If it were me, I'd go ahead and leave the 965 in place, upgrade the BIOS and install 6.6 system tools.

Good luck.

I would say put your old cpu back in,update bios to 5002,then get the nvtools straightened out first.

Did you install the whole nvtools package or just the performance tools?
You only need the performance tools.

Can you not reinstall 6.06 over the old install?

I have had a full install of the tools since I first installed my video cards so I was just continuing on with that when I upgraded to 6.06 when it first came out. I tried to install 6.06 last night but it did not want to install on top of the old so I will have to do some serious rooting around to get rid of every scrap of nVidia Tools 6.05 AND 6.06 software on the whole system since regular uninstall does not seem to work. The message has a long string that looks like a registry entry after the message...do you think that it is trying to point me to where the offending bits are hidden?

I wonder if XP would let me do a system restore to last week before I started all this mess...Then I would have 6.06 installed...

Yeah try sys restore first.
I didnt read your first post but if its some problem with nvidia software you could try some driver cleaner. Some years ago there was a programm called nv cleaner...don't know if it still exists but it helped me getting rid of a false software installation. Another idea would be to go into safe mode and try removing it from there.

Btw, I installed my 965 onto a 4 y old BIOS and flashed after the installation.

But o well..I better read everything from the start:rolleyes:

Cheers tongue.gif

EdiT: Alright, got all your posts through. Damn, seems like a huge messup. However I'm running nvtools 6.06. Works fine.

Could you possibly resume all your Problems? I may be a little tired but it's hard to me to oversee all your Problems or what it's really about smile.gif thx

To summarize my current situation:

My current problem is that I cannot get any version of nVidia system tools to install.

This is because they detect an existing installation of the same, despite having used windows and Revo uninstallers to remove them. I will be trying some of the suggestions put forward to attempt resolve this as soon as I can but am all ears for additional ideas.

Secondary is the question of should I upgrade to the newest bios, 5002, from 2002 which I am currently running with the 965be. And if I upgrade, should I do so while running my old processor or the 965be, which as I said, is currently installed.

Hi Martin, Welcome.

I will share my experience. I decided to go for an AM3 processor, 965BE in my case, simply because I will be upgrading the motherboard at some point and want to reuse this CPU when the time comes. It appears that this particular CPU can reach 4GHz without too much fanfare, assuming you can apply enough cooling to it. My Windows Experience Index is 7.4, and that should be a good step for you.

To prepare prior to actually obtaining the new CPU, go ahead and upgrade your BIOS to the latest available from ASUS website. I think 5001 is the latest for your board.

If you read back about a month's worth of posts, you will see a number of folks doing this upgrade and how they were helped and what issues they encountered.

Good Luck and let us know what you decide.
