Hey

I have a NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro, old I know. But i'm trying to track down the newest possable driver for it. I'm trying to use a prehibial and it won't work with my curent driver (Dated 2002) I'm trying to find one newer than 2004 at least. Does anyone know weather there actorly is one newer than 2002. And yes i'v looked on the nVidia site but that one dosent work and says it's not plugged in but it is.

Are you sure that 2005 dated driver is compatable with the 'NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro (Microsoft Corporation)'?

These are the newest XP/2K drivers from nVidia that still support TNT2 Model 64. On the right side of nVidias driver download page there is a link to a list of products which the drivers in question support.

This driver is not compatable, but it should be because i downloaded it and checked the Readme and my device is in there. But when i run setup.exe the first message is the installation could not find a driver to match me device... if i just took nv4_disp.dll (The Actual Driver File) and manually repalce it with the one currently installed.. would it work? What should I do? And if I can manually replace the new nv4_disp.dll with the older one how would I do so?

Nevermind,

I figured it out, hopefully now this should solve my webcam problem. Customer support told me my 2002 driver to start with was out of date so this one definently shouldn't be out of date. Thank-you very much to everyone on this site who helped me out and I promise you will hear from me agian the next time I have a problem.
