I've tried to install the new beta drivers for my G400 under Windows 2000, but the information tab keeps telling me I still use the 5.00.2195.1010 version.

Tried overwriting the old drivers with the setup-program, and I've also uninstalled the old drivers and reinstalled with the new ones. In any case, the Display Properties reports the old version still installed.

What is the trick?

I'm not sure, but I think the number you posted are the drivers ...

PowerDesk itself was updated to make better use of the drivers ... look at our PD number.

I am not able to use the new W2k drivers at all with W2k RC2.

Version 5.0 works, new beta drivers don't start !

Tried to install by setup.exe (no way); deleting the card, leaving W2k to detect card and install drivers (no way).

Why ?

New drivers work only with final version od W2k ?

Yes Brama, the new drivers only work with final. That's because Win2k has been released. This isn't a tough concept - there were a lot of changes from RC2 to final, and one of those changes was in the driver model. Cope.

Go to your local store and BUY a copy.
