guessing you are talking about windows 7?

 

ups u do...

 

this is a common problem. even MS does not know which ddi version is currently supported on the installed hardware - therfore a hack is needed to fix that.

it is like fixing the msreg settings to its real settings - means in fact binary hacking - if u know how to - u are glad - otherwise -. there is no solution at this point without paying for it.

 

amd does it by clean install, nvidia does't.. Smiley Sad
