[OUT OF DATE]How To: Run PhysX in Windows 7 with ATi Cards - Page 46

post #451 of 1230
Ok got my 8800gts now and i managed to get the physx enabled no probs,its shown in fluidmarks as physx running on hardware.

Noticed physx when running on the nvidia card doesnt show a load in gpu-z,maybe its because its processing and not rendering.

I can NOT get the supposed bugged drivers to work with ati for rendering and nvidia for physx processing,has anyone actually got the beta drivers to work like ths?

Also having problems with nvidias website for now the 2nd day,uk site is just messed up and cant download drivers at all,and the us site was just constantly busy when i tried today.

I got unreal tournament 3 physx pack with the 3 physx levels and they are pretty good,damn shame we dont get more physx content in games like this.

Also i seem to have to have to leave the second display enabled otherwise i get physx disabled,is this right? its a bit annoying losing my cursor offscreen and stuff.

10) Reboot and validate in GPU-Z that it says Physx enabled on both cards.

What? even the 5870 says physx enabled?
Using 1 or 2 monitors?
Windows 7 64bit right?

OK dude thats good to know,i appreciate the pictures as i am hoping to see similar results.

I have seen before that my ati card should also say physx is enabled,at the moment its just my nvidia,im gona follow the steps you listed and check again.

Only difference is the o/s but i doubt thats going to make any difference.

Anyway thanks and i will post back in about an hour or so.

Ok i followed your steps with the adittion of disconecting from internet first to ensure no driver is automatically downloaded from windows.

1) Uninstalled the 10.5 drivers I had (just in case) Yes
2) Booted in safe mode and run driver sweeper Yes,ran D/S twice
3) Booted normally and installed 10.5 again Yes
4) Reboot Yes
5) Install 257.15 Yes but get"windows cant verify the publisher of this driver software" but i clicked to allow anyway.
6) Reboot Yes
7) Installed Physx that came with 257.15 Yes but found that it was installed automatically with the driver so uninstalled and reinstalled
8) Reboot into safe mode Yes
9) Apply 1.03 patch Yes
10) Reboot and validate in GPU-Z that it says Physx enabled on both cards. No,physx only showing on nvidia gpu,but shows enabled in fluidmark

Perhaps there is a difference due to my copy of the nvidia driver and my o/s being 64bit?

It would appear that physx is working.

I downloaded the latest fluidmark where you can change the number of emitters,it set to 3 by default but i changed it to 10,after a few seconds i get an error pop up and the nvidia driver is re-set,should this happen?
Card is NOT overclocked at all,its at default settings,card is 8800gts 320mb(yes i know its crap)

Yep, I can confirm that it shuts the driver down on anything greater than 3. I doubt that it is the windows version that causes troubles, at least if you are able to run fluidmark it sjould mean that it works, nevermind that it is not shown in gpu-z. Just to check is the physx enabled in nvidia control panel?

Ok thats good to know about fluidmark,thanks thought my card was goosed allready.

The only way i can get physx options to appear in the nvidia panel is if i have my monitor connected to only the nvidia card,leaving nothing connected to the ati,which sort of defeats the object lol.

I have been reading of many people all over the web that can not get the beta drivers to work as yours are(showing ati as physx enabled)they all had win7 64bit so im beginning to think there is actually a difference due to me being 64 bit.

Dont get me wrong though,i can get physx enabled as fluidmark proves this no problem,just no option or evidence in nvidia panel and i dont get the ati physx enabled in gpu-z that you do.

Looks like this is how im going to have to stay,but on monday or when i next have more time im going to install win7 32bit and test out my theory.

Thanks for your help mate.
