I have the new Win 2000 Displaydriver for my TNT-Card. The system finds the harware correct and installs it but in the harware-device-list my DisplayCard has an error ("Can not start device ERROR 10") The system starts with safe vga. This problem is with built 2151, the setup does not detect my MONITOR and DIPLAY correct it starts with safe vga and standart monitor --- but with the built 2078 it worked well!? PLEASE HELP ME!

If you have an AGP card try to disable AGP-turbo settings in the bios. It worked with my ASUS V3800 card, before disabling that option I got that errors too even system crashes after a while!

There is a beta driver for the TNT and GeForce256 cards that leaked. 3.62 or something...

I am not sure why nVidia doesn't just release it because I have found that it works QUITE ASTOUNDINGLY with RC3.

Definitely, the Detonator 353 drivers do not install and crash with the "error 10" message.

Quake3 looks gorgeous, however the gamma slider is sorta busted. Try moving it all the way to the left, then move it till the display lights up.

You can get these beta drivers from www.clanworld.com I believe.
These are NOT the Athlon drivers, they work fine with Intel processors.

If you have trouble finding them there, I can post them on my server if needed.

You might also try the beta drivers that ASUS has on their TW ftp site. They have the GeForce256 based V6600 card and they have NT2000 drivers posted. (not sure if they will work with any GF256 card though...)

WWW.clanworld is under construction... I think you should post them on your server...
