you couldn't upgrade to 5.22, or the 5.22 drivers didn't get UT working? i'm not sure what help it'll be but check out the troubleshooting section.. might give you some hints

the 5.22 drivers didn't make it work

What CPU/Modo is your friend using? Is his card a GF1? If so, you might try going back to Det 3.xx drivers.

I had trouble with 5.22 the first time I installed. It really hosed my video. I rebooted in safe mode and reinstalled from there. Then it worked fine. It seems like even the newest Nvidia drivers require you to first reset to standard VGA before installing an upgrade. Hope that helps.

uh... system specs anyone? Are you sure you're doing a clean install of the drivers? Correct mobo settings? Power supply?

Sorry to hear about your problem. I had really bad problems installing drivers on my TNT2 Ultra. NVidia has some of the worst driver support. That is why I'm getting a new Vodoo5.

But to get mine to work..I had to go into my system folder in windows folder and remove all of the old drivers.
