SubjectRe: Dell C840, 2.5.58, NVidia - something is on serious crack...
From
Date
Valdis,
Numerous people have had problems with the 4191 driver...me included.
Instead of here I'd suggest going back to the NVidia site and go to the
driver download page. There is a forum regarding the drivers and their
effects/sideeffects. That might help shed some light on the issue.

HTH,
Steve
