nVidia issues
I've just installed Vista x64 (clean install), and have not yet installed
any other programs (other than motherboard updates, audio and graphice
drivers). The experience index was at its base 1.0 rating. I then proceeded
to install updates, and also the nVidia drivers version 162.18 for my MSI
NX8600GT series graphic card.

After this, I ran the assessment again. However, it fails right at the end
with the following error:
"The assessment or other operation did not complete successfully. This is
due to an error reported from the operating system, driver, or other
component." The assessment stays at 1.0.

I then went to the nVidia site itself for the latest Vista x64 drivers (v.
169.25), but the install hung. I tried uninstalling the previous version as
well but it didn't appear to complete.

Will the assessment problems cause functionality issues? Would uninstalling
it have and effect on the problem?

Thanks,
Mike T.

RE: nVidia issues
I have the same exact problem, except my computer will shut off when I try to
refresh. However, my computer works fine, except when I try play a game. Then
it shuts off. So I don't think it will cause functionality issues.
