    noell,

    Please allow me to express my sincere appreciation for your time & efforts in sharing precious information like this. It means a lot to so many &, most recently, yours truly.

    Am a brain-injured veteran who has great difficulties with reading & comprehending the written word. What most others would take for granted takes me a long, long time to get my head around. It is an excruciatingly difficult process for me to read through instructions. Going through yours time & time again, beginning this task & finally following through with all you have generously laid out for any & all to partake of: success. It took me over 6 full hours to accomplish but your clear & precise instructions & tips navigated me through. Next time it will take less than an hour, no doubt (wrote notes).

    Worked like a charm, sir. The new video card is up & running well.

    There was a time before my disablility that simultaneously a rubics cube was resolved while playing a competitive game of chess & landing a plane on an early computer flight simulator. Multi-tasking champ. Now, 12 years later, am still healing & fighting to so much as truly focus on one task at hand. Though it is clear that you are not in this for the money or for the thanks, you are giving of yourself so willingly, freely & unselfishly in order that we simmers may do it better & with less risk. Am sincerely thanking you, noell. Thank you for being here for us.

    David:

    Great to "meet" you, so to speak. You are no stranger to me, though, as I've often read your posts over the years. It pleases me greatly to know you found my video driver installation guide helpful and your kind words make my participation in this forum feel appreciated and worthwhile. Thanks so much for taking the time to express your thanks.

    .....Noell

  3. Question Please help!

    Hi can someone help me what might have gone wrong?

    I tried to follow this guide using a drivers sweeper, because I want to install a program for a 3d glasses but before that I have to install some nvidia driver, then i so. After I was finish I could not start FSX and some kind of error, that's why we go to a computer shop and they said we should install the GeForce 7 series and everything would be fine, but it did not help at all.

    We go to a fsx club here in Norway and they take a look at the computer and said that, we have to reinstall the whole FSX. Okay, then we did that but after the re-installation we still can't open FSX we get this msg:

    "Fsx.exe - Application Error

    The instruction at "0x200ef382" referenced memory at "0x0175c928". The
    memory could not be "read"
    Click on OK to terminate the program

    I tried to re-install it again and again but just come out the same.

    You probably need to post your question in the main forum under a new topic and not inside this sticky for a better response.

    Amazing for me to reread that just now from over 16 months ago, Noell. Am remembering that day well. Quite the roadmap it is to see how far I've come in that time. Have just gone through installing & uninstalling 3 different display drivers sets in the last 24 hours (reference: https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showthread.php?t=212166) & each time it took me only about 25 to 30 minutes for the entire process. Am still using your guide, stickied at the top of this forum. It's even installed in my noodle now, actually, breezing right through the steps almost effortlessly. Never hurts to say, Thank you! once again... so Thank you! once again, Noell!

    Hi Noell - Have printed your detailed and concise Video Driver Installation Guide and am in the process of gathering up courage to face my very first video driver updating.

    And then I come across Game Booster Premium v 2.0 which does a thorough scan of my system and indicates two drivers that need to be updated - Realtek High Definition Audio (I dont intend to fool around with it) and NVIDIA GE Force 9800 GTX 260.99 10/25/2010.

    And it offers a plain go ahead and do it.

    With limited experience and knowledge of computer tweaking should I try this simple go ahead and if it fails then fall back and follow dilligently your very clear and concise instructions? Hopefully having remembered to save a restore point!

    I do not need to increase FPS and am satisfied with the current sceneries - using REX. Should I follow the coach recommendation that you do not introduce changes to a winning team?

    Again, a question from an unexperienced and scared simmer: Windows XP Device Manager offers a very simple update driver menu and a Roll Back Menu to the previously installed driver in case of failure. Should that be considered?

    Apologize for these poorly addressed questions/doubts. They are motivated by the fact that I now read that my current driver is 6.14.11.7779 26/7/2008 and that date sort of tells me I am missing quite a lot of additional easily available performance.

    Thanks a lot for any assistance.

    Windows XP - FS2004 - AMD Athlong 64x2 Dual Core Processor 4400+ - NVidia GEForce 9800 GTX/9800 GTX+

    Thanks for sharing this guide. My friend is facing this problem from many times. He is not getting help of some aircraft engineer so he told me to find out the driver installation guide. After reading this thread, now i will really help him. Keep posting !

    Clarindo;
    For the past six weeks or so I've been way from home and had limited computer access so please accept my apologies for taking so long to get back to you.
    The purpose of my guide is to guarantee an absolutely "clean" video driver installation. By "clean" I mean there will be nothing remaining of the old driver that could cause problems or conflicts with the new driver. This may or not be the case when using simpler methods (like using something like GameBooster or the update driver provision in the Windows Device Manager) but you can certainly do that if you wish and then, if you have problems, you can follow my guide which should fix things up.
