Nvidia 180's Not Working Properly

Postby Elthium » Sat Apr 18, 2009 2:07 am

Hi all,

Just installed the latest 180 Nvidia drivers for my 8800GT card. Now when I play any type of video through Movie player the video every 3 seconds or so brings up a checkerboard multi colour display usually yellow and red for around a second. Never had that with the 177 drivers so I reinstalled the 177's and now the problem is solved and my video plays fine. No other settings were changed.

Not really an issue because I found a fix, just a heads up to the devs.

Was it the latest nVidia 180.* driver from the repositories or from nVidia website source?

I have 180.44 from nvidia website working fine with a 8400GS card. Havent really tried with movies. Will have to try and get back.

Also, if you had 180.11 I think it was from the repo...that one had issues with the checkered video. Try 180.44 from website (source).
