nforce drivers 6.86

Recommended Posts

well did a little bit of digging and came across some interesting changes. tho i cant confirm what any of them do.

 

Start with the installation notes: the newests driver adds this interesting little note to the directions:

 

Uninstall any existing nForce networking drivers prior to installing this package.

 

quite a few driver changes it seems.

 

6.70 Drivers

* Audio driver version 4.62 (WHQL)

* Audio utility version 4.51

* Ethernet NRM driver version 4.82 (WHQL)

* Network management tools version 4.88

* SMBus driver version 4.50 (WHQL)

* Installer version 4.93

* Legacy PATA RAID driver version 5.52

* SATA RAID driver version 5.52 (WHQL)

* IDE driver version 5.52 (WHQL)

* RAIDTOOL application version 5.52

 

6.86 Drivers

* Audio Driver (v4.65) "WHQL"

* Audio Utility (v4.51)

* Ethernet Driver (v50.25) "WHQL"

* Network Management Tools (v50.19)

* SMBus Driver (v4.57) "WHQL"

* Installer (v4.89)

* WinXP IDE SataRAID Driver (v6.66) "WHQL"

* WinXP IDE SataIDE Driver (v6.66) "WHQL"

* WinXP RAIDTOOL Application (v6.63)

 

as you can see everything but the audio utility driver has been updated aswell as 1 removed according to this list.

 

But judging from the list of upgrades i would say they made a change to the network in some way, maybe that means they finally fixed the ide, and firewall/active armor issues?

I tried the install by removing all but the display driver and then using DC Pro in safe mode I cleaned the previous install using the nVidia Chipset Driver profile. I installed 6.86 and then restarted. I had some errors coming into Windows (dialogues) and then when I open Device Manager, I see a few devices with the error icon.

 

I am going to uninstall all of the nVidia drivers, remove the directory and try again...

Installed nforce drivers 6.86 with win XP pro 64 all working fine and using XFX newest Driver for video for 7900 gtx under the same OS. All is good!

Update: I took out all of the nVidia drives with Driver Cleaner, and the directory - and installed everyting from scratch in safe mode and everything works beautifuly. Very stable ;)

And what about the NCQ for sata drives, did they resolve the data corruption bug?

 

I am running x64 without the IDE drivers at all...
