AMD athlon xp 2800 2.14 GHZ 1.50 gb ram 32-bit Windows 7 ultimate (clean install) asus a7n8x-x Nforce2 motherboard geforce 6600gt 256mb (agp 8x) After i clean installed windows 7 it set up drivers for me on my first boot and everything ran and looked fine, with the toolbar being transparent and all the nice GUI graphics. Just to be safe though i went and downloaded the graphics driver from the Nvidia website here NVIDIA DRIVERS 195.62 WHQL and installed it. Right afterwards the interface was put to some kind of basic setting, no transparencies or special effects, windows take longer to appear, and screen wipes are visible. I tried deleting my driver and rebooting, but the lagging graphics persisted after windows re-installed it. The frustrating thing is that installing the manufacturer-recommended driver has caused a severe cut in performance, whereas before everything ran near-perfect. Any suggestions would be very appreciated.
