Installation Notes

  • If you are performing an uninstall of your current nForce drivers, your system will have to re-enumerate all devices and restart prior to install of your new package. Multiple restarts may be required; please comply with all instructions to reboot. Failure to do so may cause the install to fail the installation of needed components resulting in system reliability issues.
  • Windows XP users must install Service Pack 1 prior to attempting to install this package. Failure to do so will result in the inability to support USB 2.0.
  • Audio drivers will not install on the following nForce2 products: Chaintech 7NJS. Please use the drivers that come with these products to enable audio functionality.

Release Notes

  • WHQL certified kit for nForce, nForce2, and nForce3
  • First release of NVIDIA IDE driver for Windows XP and Windows 2000
  • General compatibility fixes
  • Audio Improvements:
    • Realtek ALC655 codec support added
    • Fix for BSOD on loading DLS files
    • Reduced susceptibility to audio glitches under heavy system load; additional fixes for 6 channel GetPosition glitches
    • ASIO support for recording at sample rates other than 48kHz; lower and more predictable latency
    • Fixes for NOLF. The 3D minimum and maximum distance and the roll off factor were not being taken into account for air absorption. Also modified reverb gain so that the max distance was taken into account
    • Fix for EAX reverbs; initialized EAX reverbs to off when querying for the EAX listener interface; updated EAX property handlers to ignore invalid parameters instead of range limiting -- this matches Creative EAX behavior
