177.35 "hacked" Driver With Patched Inf (for Xp/vista)

Recommended Posts

download the modified driver, or if you have the standard driver, download the INF file, extract the standard driver to the relevant folder, and paste the INF file in that folder, run installation

 

XP x86

driver - 177.35 with modified INF (Rapidshare Free download)

INF & CAT files - nv4_disp_inf__nv4_disp_cat.zip

 

XP x64

driver - 177.35 with modified INF (Rapidshare Free download)

INF file - nv4_disp__XP_x64_.zip

 

Vista x86

driver - 177.35 with modified INF (Rapidshare Free download)

INF file - nv_disp__vista_x86_.zip

 

Vista x64

driver - 177.35 with modified INF (Rapidshare Free download)

INF file - nv_disp__vista_x64_.zip

 

 

extract to the root of C and it should create the relevant folder, and then run setup from there:

 

XP x86: C:\NVIDIA\Win2k\177.35\English

XP x64: C:\NVIDIA\Win2KAMD64\177.35\English

Vista x86: C:\NVIDIA\WinVista\177.35\English

Vista x64: C:\NVIDIA\WinVista64\177.35\English

 

 

you don't have to disable SLI for the client to work :)

 

here's mine chugging away at nearly 5000 PPD... FAHMon is only monitoring ONE RIG!

I made my own XP x64 version hack and it doesnt seem to make a whole heck of a lot of difference on my 8800GT. For anyone else interestd in trying here's the INF you can copy into the folder the regualr 177.35 drivers extract into.

Alright Steve wheres the vista hacked driver. I'm lazy. I want to see what the GX2 will do. The GTX 280 is probably close to 6000 ppd

what kind of increase did you see moving from the .55 drivers to the .35 drivers?

I never used the older driver, but I get about double the PPD of people using older drivers...

I found it no thanks to you LOL. I also had to put the GX2 in multi display mode to get it to work.

I've only tested this with XP so far, but I made the modified drivers using modified INF and CAT files... the modified drivers are what I personally used, so I know it works and the INF/CAT files are what I personally pasted into the standard drivers to make them work... I tried the standard drivers without patching them, and it threw up an error message like you mentioned, then I pasted in the INF and CAT files and it worked... if you can't get it to work, download the modified drivers as this is exactly what I made and used successfully

 

will this work on 7900GS?

no, only 8 series and later support CUDA... I don't think 7 series is capable, or if it is, nVidia probably won't bother making it CUDA-enabled... dunno... but for now, nope

You have the Vista x64 driver, but I thought that the new client didn't support x64.
