Thread: NVIDIA driver update for NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller breaks network mapping in Vista.

    NVIDIA driver update for NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller breaks network mapping in Vista.

    NVIDIA driver update for NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller once again
    breaks network mapping in Vista, just as the offering a few months ago did.

    Fortunately, I have System Restore active, because the update does not show
    in Installed Updates. It does show in Update History, but one cannot
    uninstall it from there.

    Installation date: 8/14/2007

    Hi there,

    Boot last known good configuration or Use system restore.

    Taking driver update from windows update is really not a good idea unless
    you like having problems. An excpetion is there for MS hardware.

    If your hardware works fine leave it be working fine.
    If a driver update is needed because the hardware does not funtion well you
    should download an appropite driver at the manufacturers website in this
    case nvidia.

    Best regards,
    Michel Denie

    Thanks. The main purpose of the OP was to alert folks (maybe even MS) that
    the update is flawed.

    Hi there, you are welcome.

    There have been several posts warning people for not taking any non MS
    drivers from windows update as most excperienced computer users know.

    Best regards,

    RE: NVIDIA driver update for NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller break


    Oh that's why it failed during the update twice. Tehy musta pulled it.

    Graphics drivers I agree with don't use auto update. networking drivers
    though...meh.
