Default New nVidia driver troubles...

I just updated to the newest WinXP nVidia forceware (158.22, system specs below) today, and upon installing it, I could no longer control GPU fan speed using nTune. I've rolled back to the old driver for the time being. Could it be a conflict in the BIOS settings? Any help with this issue in the new driver would be appreciated.

As a side note, I've never been able to control system fan speeds other than the GPU in nTune, and I've also never been able to overvoltage components, either.

No, nvidia took out that setting because retards were turning the fan speed all the way down so their computer would be quieter....and yeah you get the point. I use the newest drivers with my 8800 but i use riva tuner to control my fan speed.
