    Carlos,

    They also have 162.22 for Vista x86 and Vista x64, which is slightly
    newer. Guru3d has 163.11 for Vista x86 and Vista x64, but these drivers
    only work with the NVidia 8xxx series cards.

  4. 162.18 for XP/2000 x86 and 162.22 for Vista x86 and x64 are official nVidia
    beta drivers.

    See http://www.nzone.com/object/nzone_downloads_rel70betadriver.html

  5. Guys:
    Let me stress this.
    These are NOT beta.
    They are whql.
    Once you extract the exe file you will be able to see the "catalog" file
    (*cat.) which is the "mark" of being whql.
    They have the same numbering of other betas around there but they are not
    beta.
    Then again, use at your own risk.
    I have not still decided what I am going to do with them.

    Well so much for that test(162.22).I still get the error (nvlddmkm.sys
    error)system has recovered. Back to the original driver that does not
    produce that error. Nvidia Driver version 7.15.10 9746 dated 22/08/2006.

  9. Hi:
    Finally downloaded and successfully installed in Vista x64 the 162.18's from
    the source mentioned at the top of my post.
    I can confirm (and so does Vista) that the drivers are not beta.
    They are digitally signed.
    Date is June 29th, and version is 7.15.11.6218
    No problems so far.
