    I attempted to install the new detonators 23.12 for my Geforce II GTS, but the install got messed up b/c it asked for files and I didn't realize at the time to locate the folder I unzipped them to. Anyways I ended up cancelling when it asked for every file and it "installed" them but of course it wasn't right...so I went back and tried to load the old 23.11 that I had installed. After they were loaded I rebooted when it prompted me to do so.

    Ever since then my computer won't load windows. It will boot at the BIOS but then it goes to the windows 98 screen and freezes. I can run it in safe mode...and when I do and go to control panel>system>devices>display adaptors the picture next to geforce II gts has a red x over it. What the heck does this mean? The card is inserted correctly. I've tried to load drivers from safe mode but when I tried to load the 23.11 drivers it says the nvidia card doesn't exist on the system. And I've tried to load other drivers in safe mode but havn't had any success.

    thanks...but i cant open the file at that site. Perhaps the link to detonator destroyer is down? Hopefully just temporarily. I've found some other sites that have it but they're links arn't working either.

    email me, I will send it to you, it's only 126K

    Okay well I didn't think of this earlier, but I ran DD and it didn't help...I still had to load in safe mode. So I tried just remvoing the device from device manager and now its loading up, and I'm going to attempt to install the new drivers one more time. Thanks.
