Help with STB Velocity 4400 / TNT Detonator
I had STB drivers 1.42 and then 1.52 which didn't work to good so installed TNT Detonator drivers which work great. My problem is when I boot up I get a window saying "Building driver information database" and then some copying goes on in the windows directory. It can take up to 1 min to do this. I looked in the display settings and both STB drivers are still available. I think there's something going on with all the available drivers I have and would like to remove the old STB drivers. How do I do this OR do I have another problem? System Micron Millenium Xku 333 128Meg, STB Velocity 4400 AGP video out.
Thanks to whoever can help...
I know this is the antithesis of "help", but I just wish to concur with your plight and let you know that I finally solved it by purchasing a new video card.
I am not sure whether to blame the ineptitude on STB or on Nvidia. Consequently, I was very skeptical of the new TNT2 chipset (though I've heard nothing but good things about it, personally.)
Personally, I blame STB and their lack of support for their "legacy" products following their acquisition by 3DFx.
Sounds to me like you either didn't follow, or didn't correctly complete the install directions for the NVIDIA drivers.
Off hand I recall that they require you to remove all previous driver versions, re-install the card as a standard VGA device, and then try to install the NVIDIA drivers that you downloaded.
Double check the install instructions for the NVIDIA driver set you want to use, and try it again. (hint: read the read-me directions contained with the drivers too!). In my experience, failure to follow them "to the letter" resulted in a driver that was not installed correctly, and hence did not behave correctly.
~best of luck.
