# 1 Driver issue? nvidia 197.45
05-15-2010, 03:07 AM
i just updated my gfx drivers for my sli gtx 260. After I did the gfx of STO are all messed. I don't know how to describe it cause there is always something different happening. The floor on every ground map is messed up where it looks like its moving. Space changes colors. Star disappear and reappear. All my other games work fine and I need the new driver to play Assassins Creed 2.

Anyone else run into a similar problem? How was it fixed

In the ship status page my ship is in pieces.

I've got the same problem, ground moving, stars exploding, abnormal colors, you name it. I hadn't updated my drivers or anything, it was only after the latest game patch that I encountered this. Tried updating my drivers to the newest (197.75) but it didn't help at all, and unfortunately I can't try older drivers as I have a Geforce 480 and the drivers I was using were the ones that shipped with the card so... yea... Tried force verify to see if that did anything, nope, about the only thing I haven't tried is uninstall the whole fracking game and reload, and I'm not going to do that, as it almost never helps anyway... *looks evilly at WoW*

Just as I figured, reinstalling the game did absolutely nothing to help.

I've got the same graphics board and driver and it fixed the issues i had before like black walls at the end of a hallway and such. ALWAYS uninstall the old driver. Driver settings are on default values, only texture quality is on performance.

"Uninstalling" the driver never truly uninstalls, windows just puts it right back in...

I did manage to get it working though, after 3 attempts with driver sweeper and 197.41 its back to normal. Though that doesn't really explain how it got all corrupted in the first place, 197.41 was the driver I had from a fresh driver install a couple weeks prior to the May 13th patch, it was only after the March 13th patch that it acted up. /shrug
