I have a NVidia TNT2 Riva 64 video card that worked fine with WinME. When I upgraded to XP-Pro, all things seemed to go wrong. I made the BIOS adjustment to assign an IRQ to the PCI Video Card... No biggie.. And it worked for a little bit, then something happened to where after the initial splash screen, it goes to a blank black screen with a flashing cursor in the upper right corner for and indefinite amount of time. I believe I got the wrong video driver.

Anyway, a little searching on the web and I see that the NVidia TNT2 Riva 64 card and XP are not mutual buddies. My question is can someone please direct me to an XP driver for the NVidia TNT2 Riva 64?

As far as I know with all nvidia cards the detonator drivers are the best bet. They can be downloaded from

Agreed--the nVidia Detonator drivers cover all variants of nVidia chip from the TNT2 onward. (Dunno if it covers the original TNT, but that's hardly germaine to the question).

...you may have to boot to VGA mode and remove your current driver, then after rebooting apply the detonators.

Good luck

Hi.

I once had the same problem with a gigabyte TNT2 video card that wouldn't work with the latest Nvidia DetXP drivers on winXPpro.  I resolved it by installing older drivers from the vendor of my card (www.giga-byte.com).
Worked perfectly.

Hope this helps.

Welcome to Experts Exchange!  The method generally used in this EE Topic Area is to make comments in a question, and not propose answers, even if you are 100% sure that your solution is the only workable answer.  By posting your solution as an "Answer", it moves the question into the "Locked Questions" listing on the page, which fewer Experts look at, which therefore reduces the chance that the Questioner will get a fast solution to their problem.

Due to TOO MANY hardware related problems (my Lexmark X73 was the straw that broke the camels back), I re-installed Windows ME, and now happy again... However, this link proved useful in the re-install process in that my TNT2 driver was outdated by a year..

Thanks!
