No, because dicking with those settings can compromise system stability.

 

Use PowerStrip.

Well, just tried the 3.78 Nvidia drivers off of Nvidia's site and seconds after the reboot was completed my system hung. So, in other words, if you system hung in the past, don't bother with these drivers.

 

Is Nvidia ever gonna come out with a driver that won't crash/hang windows 2K. Ever since 3.68, the drivers crash my system hard (which requires a hardware reset).

 

Come on Nvidia, get with the show and listen up....fix this crash problem!!!!

How about collecting an honest to goodness bug report? Then sending it to Nvidia.. That way they have a list of what works and what doesnt... HMmm??? sounds better than complainin about it.

 

Just my 3 cents. (not a slam)

Hey Yuppie.... i noticed that you are using "SuperMicro P6DBS (dual UW-SCSI) BIOS 2.2, 2*Celery 300a @ 450Mhz, 384MB PC100 RAM"

 

Where did you get the bus settings from? I havent seen them anywhere! I am using the SM P6DBE.. would you happen to have the bus settings for that board or can you point me in the right direction?

 

Thanks

Yuppie,

 

Do you have any SoftMenu or jumper setting for bus speed other than 100 Mhz for your SuperMicro motherboard? I will be buying the dual slot 1 GX chipset with SCSI onboard soon.

I found out that with the new drivers

(3.76 and 3.78) Quake would crash if my r_gamma is higher than 1.0, but at 1.0 Quake is VERY dark on my Monitor, now's my Question...when will NVidia actually have proper gamma facilities in their Win2k drivers...under Win9x the Gamma works great. I tried r_ignorehwgamma 1, but then Quake is still a bit dark, and ugly.

 

Oh Yeah, with the new A3D 3.01 Driver, A3D actually works on w2k, but Crashes Horribly after a while =/
