    I just installed the 175.16 drivers from NVIDIA on my Vista 64bit MacPro. The card has an error when trying to start. When I remove the software, everything runs fine. Any ideas?

    I also tried the newest beta drivers from guru3d and they did not work either. It shows generic monitor on blank and gives me an error code 10 on the device. It is almost like there is another driver being loaded.

    Have you tried installing the driver manually?

    I am going to try the new beta drivers. I am going to boot into safe mode. Remove the software and use clean sweep on it too.

    To make things even more screwed up, is the device manager shows the drivers as being loaded, but the display manager just shows (Default Monitor) on then blank.

    It looks like it is running something called VGASave when I try to look at the adapter properties.
