nVidia Driver and Crysis
First off hi everyone, new here! I recently downloaded the Crysis SP Demo. I
installed the newest beta driver (169.04) for my graphics card (EVGA 8800GTX)
and played the game in DirectX 10. I shut my computer off after playing and
when I turned it back on the next day, the resolution was at 800x600
(normally at 1280x1024), and my computer won't load the driver. What can I do
to fix the problem? I have asked Nvidia support and they haven't been able to
find the problem. I've tried system restores, and installing different
versions of the drivers. If you need any more info, please ask. All info is
helpful, thanks!

RE: nVidia Driver and Crysis
Hi Rileyw4,

This is one of the drawbacks of using Beta drivers (there is actually an
Alpha driver, but these are usually for in-house use only). A Beta driver is
considered to be stable enough to be released, but be aware that it might
contain bugs and features that do not work correctly. Also be aware that
these bugs do not affect everybody, so someone with exactly the same setup as
you might not be affected. What you need to do is to provide detailed
feedback directly to Nvidia explaining what has happened. They will then take
this onboard and make changes to the driver before it is subsequently
released as a WHQL driver. The reason why Nvidia (and other manufacturers)
release Beta drivers is so that they can be tested more thoroughly and on
many more hardware configurations than they could possibly do in-house, and
feedback from users like you is extremely helpful to them. I provide a link
to Nvidia's 'Vista Quality Assurance webpage'. Athe bottom of this page is a
ink 'Report a bug with the NVIDIA graphics driver'.
