I run both Windows XP and Windows 7 on my PC, as dual boot system, and have just installed a new Nvidea video card, do I need seperate drivers for each OS, or does the Win 7 do both OK?

You will need separate drivers.

It will depend on whether Win7 is 64bit or not. You can use the same GeForce driver install file on XP 32bit & Win7 32bit so you only need to download them once. If you extract them to a folder that both OSes can see, you can install them a little easier from within each OS.

If you're using XP 32bit and Win7 64bit, you'll need separate drivers for each OS.
