I have a video driver question

in order for me to be able to play the game Stronghold Kingdom I have to use the Nvidia driver 278.33 Desktop – win 7 winvista – 32 bit

my problem is that every evening the computer will update the driver and I have to reinstall the old one every day so I can play the game.

My question is is there a way I can set the computer so it will not update the driver every night

Hi Masonw123 :)

Simple question, what happens when you install the latest drivers and you try the play the game? Does it crash? Does it gives an error on execution? If so which one? I'm really interested in knowing how more recent drivers can make the game crash since its not supposed to happen, its supposed to help it run smoother.

Its probably because the in-game settings have been changed to something of higher resolution and you would have to adjust them. Did you try to play with the in-game video settings when you have the newest drivers installed?

Have you tried disabling the driver auto update? http://www.nvidia.in/object/nvidia-update.html

Can you open the Event Viewer? Click on the Windows Start Menu, then right-click on Computer and select Manage. From there, in the left pane, click on the arrow by Event Viewer, Windows Logs and Application. Look for an entry that is classed as Error,, which source is Application Hang and that corresponds to the NVIDIA Control Panel executable. Once done, copy and paste the content of the General text box in your next reply.

Note: In your Event Viewer, you're looking for an Application Hang entry, and not Security-SPP like shown in that screenshot.

The application itself is faulty apparently. You just disabled the auto-update feature on it right? Can you restart your computer and see if the application still crashes?
