122MB driver update on windowsupdate
 
I thought I'd do a check this morning for updates, and there is only one
there, a driver update.

NVIDIA display software update released on October 06 2003.
Download size: 122 MB, 1 hour 1 minute

If I click on the supported hardware I get this.
NVIDIA display software update released on October 06 2003.

Yes I have a Geforce 2 MX in this machine, but the Nvidia drivers are
dated November, and are WHQL apparently.

Hell, even if I go to Nvidia's site and download the latest ones, they
are only 8.53MB.

Any ideas whats going on with this one?

Have you downloaded it, might be a 12.2MB file no decimal point?

The MS Windows Update site has been ****ed for some time: The decimal point
no longer displays on ANY of their downloads. It's 12.2mb.

I have no need for them, I only have a GF2MX so no real need for the
uptodate drivers, they give 0% performance increase... hell, a defrag
gives more.

I suggest you go online and then got to device manager, properties for your
video card and select ˙pdate driver'. It should go online and look for the
latest driver, download it and install it. Did it myself the other night
and it worked great. Be patient as it says it's "looking" for the driver
albeit it is downloading all 12 megs of it.
