Open Issues in Version 93.71 for 32-bit Operating
Systems
As with every released driver, version 93.71 of the Release 90 driver has open issues and enhancement requests associated with it. This section includes lists of issues that are either not fixed or not implemented in this version. Some problems listed may not have been thoroughly investigated and, in fact, may not be NVIDIA issues. Others will have workaround solutions. This section includes issues that occur under the Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows Media Center Edition OS: • NVIDIA Recommendations • NVIDIA Issues—Single GPU • NVIDIA Issues—SLI Mode NVIDIA Recommendations
• The GeForce 6800 Ultra 512MB works in single card mode with Apple 30 inch HD Cinema panel. However, an issue has been discovered when running the GeForce 6800 Ultra 512MB card in SLI mode with an Apple 30 inch HD Cinema display. This is due to an interaction between the GPU, the application, and the ability to scale to non‐native panel resolutions of the Apple display. All GeForce 6 series GPUs will work with Apple 23 and 20 inch HD Cinema displays in single GPU mode. NVIDIA recommends using the GeForce 6800 Ultra 512MB with the Apple 30 inch HD
Cinema Display line only in non-SLI modes.
• Single display modes such as TV only, DFP/LCD only or CRT only provide the best performance and quality from Windows Media Center Edition. Dual display modes such as Dualview and nView Clone and Span modes are not recommended. • When using the trial version of WinDVD 6 from InterVideo.com, you may experience TV or DVD playback problems in Windows Media Center if you change NVIDIA Corporation
1
resolutions during video playback. This is most often seen when switching from windowed to full screen mode. This problem does not occur with the latest full OEM versions of WinDVD or with other
Windows Media Center qualified DVD decoders.
• If you perform a clean driver installation (no previous NVIDIA drivers installed), you must reboot your computer. If you do not reboot, the predefined application profiles will not be activated and you may experience application stability problems. NVIDIA Issues—Single GPU
This section includes issues that occur under the Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows Media Center Edition OS: All GPUs
• Dark Messiah of Might and Magic–light flickers on the weapons and characters, and the system freezes after a period of gameplay. • FEAR–reflection in the puddle flickers. • Lock On: Modern Air Combat–graphics corruption occurs. • With an HDTV connected to the component‐out, the driver does not detect the HDTV setting and instead sets the TV format to NTSC. • There is no display in Clone mode when TV is switched from Component to Composite. • NVIDIA Control Panel: The S‐Video‐NTSC/HD Component format is not preserved after switching the primary displays. • NVIDIA Control Panel: Unable to run the NVIDIA Multiple Display wizard with any nView multi‐display mode enabled. • Memory clocks displayed do not reflect DDR multiplier. The memory clocks themselves are running at the correct speeds.

Version 93.71
• NVIDIA Control Panel Category Pages: Foreign language text exceeds the boundary of category windows. • NVIDIA Control Panel Category Pages: Japanese translation issues exist in the menu options. • Interlaced HDTV formats cannot be set in the NVIDIA Control panel. • The NVIDIA Control Panel: After selecting HD Component 480i /576P/720 format, the Color Quality slider in the Change Resolution page is grayed out. • There may be intermittent application compatibility issues with dual core CPUs. If you experience this issue, first make sure you have downloaded and installed the dual core
patches from your CPU manufacturer and from Microsoft. The Microsoft knowledge base
article is available at:http://support.microsoft.com/?id=896256.
If you still experience problems you can attempt to work around these by toggling off
NVIDIA’s multithread optimizations using the following instructions:
1 Launch regedit and determine the current primary display card by looking in HKey_Local_Machine\Hardware\DeviceMap\Video
and note the GUID (global unique identifier assigned by Windows), which is the long string in brackets { } at the end of the entry ʺ\device\video0ʺ. 2 Look in HKey_Local_Machine\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\{GUID}\0000 where {GUID} is the number derived from the previous step. 3 Open the ʺ0000ʺ directory and create a new DWORD called OGL_ThreadControl and give it a value of 2. This will disable multithreading in the driver for all OpenGL applications. 4 If you want to disable driver multithreading for all Direct3D applications– In the same ʺ0000ʺ directory, create a new DWORD called WTD_EXECMODEL and give it a value of 0. NVIDIA Corporation

• Video color‐space range for DVI‐only 1 outputs is erroneously set to standard mode (16‐235) instead of extended mode (0‐255). A new detection feature to apply Standard CSC mode to TV outputs (including NTSC, PAL,
480i, and 576i), included DVI-only outputs by mistake.
Note: The driver correctly applies extended mode to analog outputs, and standard mode to
TV outputs (including NTSC, PAL, 480i, and 576i).
A future driver release will correct this and apply the extended-mode color space to DVIonly outputs.
You can work around this issue by forcing either standard or extended mode as follows:
1 Launch regedit and determine the current primary display card by looking in HKey_Local_Machine\Hardware\DeviceMap\Video
and note the GUID (global unique identifier assigned by Windows), which is the long string in brackets { } at the end of the entry ʺ\device\video0ʺ. 2 Look in HKey_Local_Machine\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\{GUID}\0000 where {GUID} is the number derived from the previous step. 3 Open the ʺ0000ʺ directory and create a new DWORD called VMRCCCSStatus and give it a value of 0x3 ‐ to force use of the standard YUV range of 16‐235 0x1 ‐ to force use of the extended YUV range of 0‐255 NVIDIA Quadro Series GPUs
• NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500, G‐Sync: Setting the Frame Sync Server to 70 Hz causes the system to lose sync with the monitor. • NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 SDI: SDI output does not broadcast PSF signal formats under nView Dualview mode. • NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500, NVIDIA Control Panel: When enabling nView Clone mode for the first time, each monitor is set to a different resolution. 1
“DVI-only” means only one display is connected, and it is to the DVI output.
