Issue

You have experienced a crash in Windows XP caused by your current nVidia video driver and want to know how to update your system to the latest driver for your video card.

The following system activities can result in a crash related to a faulty or incorrect video driver:

  • Switching between applications
  • Locking your system with a password
  • Opening the task manager
  • Activating the screen saver
  • Docking and undocking a laptop
  • Waking from Sleep mode
  • Waking from Hibernation

Solution

Download the latest driver from nVidia.com and choose any driver version that is 259.57 or later:

Windows XP 32-bit:
http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/Quadro_Certified/259.57/259.57-Quadro-winxp-32bit-english-whql.exe

Windows XP 64-bit:
http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/Quadro_Certified/259.57/259.57-Quadro-winxp-64bit-english-whql.exe

Note: This driver will not display as certified however it should avoid the crashes experienced in the previous driver versions.
