Two steps forward, one step back

by Matt 21. November 2006 16:41

That's Vista RTM installed then. Yes, I've got new sounds, but my display problems have gotten worse. RC2 had problems with resuming from sleep and hibernate. An impressive reboot-free update made things better (and improved my Experience Index to boot!) so I had high hopes for RTM.

Unfortunately, that was not to be. I wasn't connected to the internet at install time, and got saddled with the standard VGA driver (Experience Index of 1.0. Booo!)

Windows Update got me an NVidia driver that supports glass, but has bigger problems with power. After sleep, I get well over a hundred balloon notifications that "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." (I think this might be a notification from the event log, which is interesting). Not good.

On the plus side, the display driver restarting doesn't blue screen the machine. And reporting the problems to Microsoft shows off the massively improved Windows Error Reporting, resulting in the message that the "Error is being researched", but there's no fix yet. Looks like I'll just have to download the latest nvidia drivers off the net (I think Vista's got 97.17, and the nvidia site has 96.85).

And the new startup sound? Don't like it - it's one of those corporate identity jingle things that Intel's Pentium popularised. At least it's not as irritating as Philips two-tone jingle.

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for novice blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.

The very heart of your writing while appearing agreeable in the beginning, did not really sit well with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but only for a very short while. I still have a problem with your leaps in logic and you would do well to help fill in all those breaks. When you actually can accomplish that, I would surely end up being impressed.
