Am running 4 monitors off 2 Nvidia Graphics cards with old drivers:

1. GeForce FX5500 driver 7.7.7.7 released 7/20/05
2. GeForce 6600 driver 7.7.7.9 released 8/2/05

Went to Nvidia site to check for new drivers. Saw that 8.1.9.8 released
12/05 was recommended for systems running Windows Media Edition. I
updated drivers .... BUT .....

MediaCenter TV freezes up with these drivers installed. Anyone else having
this problem? Is there a solution?

Screw it. Went back to the old drivers ...... 7.7.7.7 and 7.7.7.9.
Everything works again. In my mad rush to install the newest drivers, I
stupidly ignored the golden rule of computing:

"If it ain't broke ....don't fix it."
