    When I use the old drivers from nvidia on my geforce 4 ti-4200
    everything works ok. when I install the newest drivers, google earth
    and hallmark plus several other programs give me a BSOD. any ideas
    why this would happen? I am using windows xp sp2.

    as you have found out not all the newer drivers are worth using.

    Which would suck because the drivers are supposed to be a "unified" set that
    should support cards that are even older than the GeForce4 series. To me,
    if a product is listed as being supported, it should be properly supported
    regardless of who the GPU/VPU maker is.

    I am using the latest driver in my Ti 4600 and everything works OK.
    So far I have not encountered any problem.

    guess it depends on what apps you are using. when I was running the
    new drivers, about 96% of everything was ok, but google earth and
    hallmark would bomb out xp. went back to the old drivers and
    everything works ok now.
