    Hi TSG,
    Dell Dimension 4400
    Intel Pentium 4, 1600 MHz
    256 MB system RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400 w/TV Out
    Driver Version 1.5.2.0
    800x600 resolution, 32 bits/pixel
    Windows XP Home v:5.1.2600 SP 1.0
    Internet Explorer v:6.0 SP1.0

    My question: is it "always" advisable to update to the latest NvIDIA Driver Version as found on my (non-critical) Windows Update?

    Lately, whenever I check my Windows Update for critical updating I see five (5) WindowsXP updates I do not think I need (so, I do not install them) and also one (1) Driver Update. No version is indicated (would probably need to install to get this info?) but indicates it was released on July 28, 2003 and the size is 12.2MB.

    In August 2003 I updated/installed NVIDIA Display Driver v4.4.0.3 and was wondering if I should download the version indicated on my Windows Update. All my displays seem to be working properly with no indication of any problem. Does the axiom "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!" apply here?

    Thank you,
    Telstar
