I spent last week in a hospital in Richmond VA, looking for a blood
clot. The good news is that I don't have any. The bad news is that there
SHOULD be one, for my right foot toes to start turning black. Diabetes
is a royal bitch. Too bad I didn't have my computer with me, as I was
just loaded and giggling with Percoset. I had a great time with the
nurses, though. I hit the panic button on the MRI. You can't keep me
inside that sausage stuffer. Oh hell no... they would have to knock me
out the next time.

I'm not finding that listed here. Please check, as this list should tell
you what driver version to use. The only 500 anything I see there is for
a Quadro 500. You might peek inside your machine, and do like I do, get
a magnifying lens to read that tiny script on the video card. Even my
damn computer is getting like me, old, busted and complaining. Nothing a
young woman wouldn't fix though.

Not good. Give it a Percoset and it'll behave.

I wish I could be of more assistance. Something is truly hammered as the
nvidia setup has, for the most part, "always worked for me <tm>". Is
Nouvou installed? I've had an occasion, back when, where it interfered
with my setup, so I have always un-installed it when it popped up in a
fresh install. Gotta have my 3D.
