Default Ti-4200 drivers test AND test of overlay / games color bugs

You have not said which motherboard, BIOS, chipset drivers, and OS is in
use. Without that information, your results don't mean much to others.

However, it looks like there is little significant difference in speed
and slower results with newer drivers is probably offset by better
graphics quality.

OK, I spent half the weekend testing drivers for my Ti-4200 card to
find the fastest driver AND to try to find a driver that loaded
overlay color settings and games profiles color setting after reboot
(without having to apply again).

Not a success as you can see. None of the drivers in the 6x.xx and
7x.xx series work well on a 4200 card (some feedback I got is that it
works on 6x.xx cards though).

The other settings for games profiles work (quality etc) but not
colors profiles after boot (they work just after jo apply them in the
control panel as long as you don't boot, that's tru for the overlay
color setting as well). Only thing that works is that the desktop
color settings are restored at boottime (I guess they couldn't have
missed if this disn't work :-)

So it would seem that no one cares about us that bought 42xx series
cards anymore :-(
I have not managed to get any comment or feedback from Nvidia either
:-(

Well the test results might be interesting for all 4xxx cards owners
anyway, right :-)
Any if anyone else can confirm the problem OR have a solution then
please tell me!

FWIW - I used to use 45.23 drivers on my Ti4800 - no problem. Needed to
rebuild PC, so new XP Pro & SP2, then added lastest whql drivers at the time
6177 -again no problems - plays most gamed medium detail @ 1024 x 768.
Then bought HL2 & noticed it was a bit jerky so had to crank resolution down
to 800 x 600.
Recently got NeedforSpeed Underground 2 - ran terrible jerky & isolated
grphic glitches on the car details.

So, tried downgrding to 45.23 - speeding up NFSU2 & HL (CS:Source actually
tested) noticeably even to the eye.
