Vista hangs when Aero is enabled with an NVidia 7800GS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I bought a new Nvidia card (7800GS) in order to run properly Vista with the Aero Style. Everytime I enable the Aero Style, the Nvidia driver (96.33) stop working and then Vista (x64) hang (freeze)... Without the Aero Style Vista is stable and no trouble....

    Nvidia didn't gave any answers...

    My config :

    AMD Sempron 2600+
    RAM : 1024mb
    HD : 160go SATA
    MotherBoard : MSI K8MM3-V (VIA chipset)
    Network Card : Integrated (VIA chipset)

    Please, someone has any idea ?

  • I have a similar card, but I'm using microsoft RC1 default driver. I didnt install nvidia drivers yet because i'm not 100% sure of the stability. Your post is a proof that nvidia vista drivers needs more work to be stable.

    BTW your 7800GS is an AGP or PCI-e card?
