    Win 8.1 Update 1 Pro 32-bit


    Hey Guys....It ultimately was an issue on my side. My DSL was having fits, running about third speed or less. Seems to be a problem with CenturyLink. Right now it's running full speed and the aforementioned videos run perfectly! I finally figured this out when I downloaded the NVIDIA update. And BTW the update fails on my system for some reason. But that will be another story.

    Thanks again for all your help...

    You're welcome. Any installer errors shown? You could probably just install the driver using the device manager, and pointing it to either the folder with the new driver (usually in C:\NVIDIA) or double clicking on the .inf. Either method works well.

    When done, just run setup.exe in the extracted folder to update the Control Panel for it. (Or whatever NVIDIA calls it - I forget at the moment.)

    If they had came out with that video before they released Win8 CR they would have been a lot less complaining. But its all good.

    GMan....I tried the method above, but again to no avail. No errors other than the notice on the update screen that says the graphics driver failed to install, and everything else did not install. At the moment, I'm fine with version 296.17.

    Thanks again!
