Hi dr3w807,

when I looked around a bit I found out that some 8500GT cards are not recognized by the actual nvidia driver (distribution independent). Maybe you have to wait for the next driver release.

Best regards,

Olli

Hi dr3w807,

that was not the new driver - it was only a new package of the existing driver for the new kernel. The new driver will be version 171.XX.

Best regards,

Olli
