I got a new ASUS A7N8X-E deluxe motherboard and have installed all software. Now at startup I get a Nvide2.nvu file is missing from c:windows/system32/ . What is this file for I am assuming it is part of the Nforce2 chipset software from NVIDIA, but am unsure. Also where can I get this file, I have been all over my installation CD with no luck.

    Hello sebastian7268 =)

    Are u sure its the correct file name.... there is no inforamtion available for this file on internet :-?
    anyways try to boot ur system in safmode, does the error come there also ??
    if NO then it must be a problem with the startup application in Normal Mode, so try this,
    Goto Start>Run>msconfig>Startup
    and untick all applications except the Antivirus and Firewall entires
    restart and now check for the problem, if it doesn't happen then re-enable each application at a time and trace out the culprit one !!

    It is part of the nForce driver set, linked to nvuide.exe. Don't know anything about it though. I would suggest downloading the latest nForce driver from nVidia.

    Download the unified driver for Nvidia for your platform (Windowsxp,98,linux)
