Every time I try to update my video drivers, I always get this error:
Error Code: -5003 : 0x5
PAPP:NVIDIA Windows 2000/XP Display Drivers
PVENDOR:NVIDIA Corporation (http://www.nvidia.com/)
@Windows XP Service Pack 2 (2600) BT_OTHER 0.64
It was doing that on my older video card (GeForce4 MX 440) and I just got a new video card tuesday, an eVGA GeForce 6800, which is also getting the driver update error. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I've tried doing all the helpful installation tips on the NVIDIA site, and it still refuses to work for me. Hopefully someone has had a similar problem and can give me a solution. Here are my system specs, I read the rules, but I'm slightly confused on what specs you'd actually want, so here's everything I got off your list:
Proccessor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40GHz
Proccessor Code Name: Northwood
Core Speed: 2394.0 MHz
FSB: 133.0 MHz
Bus Speed: 532.0 MHz
Manufacturer: Dell Computer Corp.
Graphic Interface Version: AGP Version 3.0
Graphic Interface Transfer Rate: 8x
Size: 512 MB
Freq.: 166 MHz
DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)
Device Name: NVIDIA GeForce 6800
Chip Type: GeForce 6800
Device Approx. Total Memory: 128 MB
Main Driver: nv4_disp.dll
Drivers Version: 6.14.0010.7125 (English)
I'm also curious about what I'm actually missing out on without updating my drivers. Would I get a performance boost? Or would I not notice anything different?
Thanks for the help.
