had a clean install of Vista 64 on my system. But still this nvidia control panel cannot be opened.
Then you nVidia driver is corrupt. If you do a clean install, all drivers are removed. Try downloading the latest driver.
The thing is when I do a clean install on this machine I use the HP Restore Plus disc because when the workstation was shipped it had a partition for the HP_RECOVERY.
I am planning to do another clean install in the next couple when I finish my current project so that I can have a CS4 properly installed because it failed to export some plugins in its first project. How can I get these drivers completely removed. If I remove them Windows automatically dowloads the drivers and installs them for me.
I wanted to take full advantage of cuda
There really isn't much of an advantage yet. You go right ahead and switch to ATI.
Try turning off temporarily Windows Update and/or install the generic VGA drivers before you update to the latest drivers. If that does not work another method would be to open Windows in Safe Mode and try installing. It has to be that HP thing.
"It has to be that HP thing"
Bill what is this HP thing. Could you expand on that please because I have just completed a clean install using HP RESTORE plus disc and my drive was completely wiped out. Not even Windows OLD files were left.
I then installed the drivers using the Original CD that came with the GPU, still the problem remains. I updated the driver using the internet and it didn't help neither. I have also purchased an Intensity PRO editing card and expecting a 22" HD monitor thhis morning for HD editing.
I think ATI is the way forwad. Which is the best ATI card for HD editing. Budget maximum GBP£150.
YOUR HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
It has to be your HP restore that is doing something. No one else that I have ever seen has that problem. I have lived with many nVidia cards and never seen that problem. Try going to the nVidia forums and/or support and see if they can help. Have you downloaded the nVidia drivers and instructions from nVidia as opposed to using HP stuff?
Problem was fixed after another clean install which included installing all the software HP supplied. There isn't a lot of bloatware with this workstation. So I can access my Nvidia control panel without any problem, and CS4 is flying with all previews via the intensity pro HDMI.
Thanx everyone who took part in this discussion.
