    Thanks Popeye! I unfortunately? put 32 bit on my pc which has a Pentium D 2.8 processor and 2gb of ram. I intend to add 2gb to it. Is this driver for either, like the 307.74 driver was? Thanks again.

    No you'll need the 32 bit version try these, NVIDIA DRIVERS 326.01WHQL

    307.74 are the highest listed for your card on the NVidia site. Try the 326.01 at your own risk. I'd make a system restore point before you install them, just in case you have to go back to your current ones.

    I will try that asap. I am sorry for my ignorance of drivers but are these drivers made by Nvidia or is this a secondary company that is making them? Is there any good in trying older versions of the driver? Just a thought. Thanks again!

    Sorry, I tend to assume 64 bit since I've had it for quite awhile now. Do like alphamumeric says. And not to worry, they are legit NVidia drivers, just preview which they release to see if bugs are reported back. You may find they work great on your particular setup and maybe not.

    Be sure to take some precaution first like he said. Please let us know how it goes.

    The ones I linked too are direct from the NVidia web site. The link in the very first post in this thread, Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers will get you the 307.21 drivers. To get the 326.01 drivers I did a search on the NVidia site.

    The 326.01 drivers aren't listed for your card, that's why I cautioned about creating a restore point. They may work fine, you won't know until you actually try them. Return to Castle Wolfenstein is one of my all time favorites. I've played the newer Wolfenstein too.

    EDIT: The latest drivers out are the 335.23, if your adventurous you could try those too. I would think the worst case scenario is a BSOD on boot or maybe just a black blank screen. Ideally they should just say no supported software found and not install. I haven't tried to install new drivers on old cards so I don't honestly know what will happen.

    I will do a restore point first for sure. I just have to boot into safe mode if I get a bsod right? It is funny that in the 64 bit driver my card is supported but not on the 32 bit. Thanks again!

    Just to be sure, this is the one you tried? Nvidia GeForce Graphics Driver 326.01 for Windows 8.1 Preview 32-bit Download - TechSpot

    Is, running out of options. Have you tried uninstalling the driver and selecting to delete the driver then reboot and see what Windows installs? Kind of a last ditch effort though.

    UPDATE: Found these on a French site. a bit older but maybe they will work better: NVIDIA DRIVERS 306.97WHQL

    You can go here, Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers and up at the top where it says "Search NVidia" you can type in the driver version your looking for. If its a valid number it should find it.
