    I recently updated my graphic Drivers on my computer. Shortly afterwards i discovered that my graphics in games were starting to mess up. Pictures were having random lines through them. Entire images were blacking out. this extended to adobe reader and similar applications. When i try to open the nVidia Control panel i get this message that pops up 12 times :

    The NVIDIA Display Control Panel Extension cannot be created.

    Possible reasons include:
    version mismatch. Reinstalling display drivers may solve the problem.

    The control panel then opens but it won't let me adjust anything like the clock speeds. It also nolonger list the option to turn on and off SLI mode

    Both the drivers for my GPU's and my motherboard are up to date as is the nVidia software.

    My computer spec's follow :

    Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 build 2600 (32-bit),
    1 x AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ [2210.2 MHz],
    2.0GB DDR2 Corsair RAM,
    NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GT/GTO

    NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GT/GTO,
    In SLI

    298GB Western Digital HDD, 69GB Raptor HDD,

    Any help you can offer would be great

    Thank you
