I have GF3 Ti500 and the only problem was playing 1942 caused graphics to be really wierd, like all white and ground showing as water etc.. removed it and went back to version 41.09 (just happened to have it handy) and all is well.

Maybe you should try a driver rollback.

44.03 are my fav driver set...

There is a known bug with the Forceware drivers (the 52.16 release at least) that causes BF1942 to crash, and a fix is expected to be in the next release!

Ive gone back to the 30.82 driver which i had,and it goes sweet,mite try the 44.03 and see what happens.was trying the new one because u can overclock the graphics card with it apparantly,guess il have to wait until a bug free version comes out.Cheers for your help guys...

Woah dude.. That's going a way back now.... You can still get 44.03 from the JSG mirror, or nvidia.com do keep archives of the drivers AFAIK.

Overclocking Graphics cards isnt really neccesary, you're better off just buying a better one or being content with your current power. Programs start to crash, chips start overheating... and you get meltdown if you've not setup yourself up correctly, so do be careful if you choose to :-)


Chill.

Thanks from me too Chill. Hadn't heard about the problems.
And there I was at an overnight LAN, attempting to play 1942. :(
