Dude no worries i had the same problem with driver version 175.19 but with 94.74 or 169.something i never had a hitch believe me it worked for me as 175.19 is latest release i updated to it but soon got it that it was actually meant for geforce 8 9 series so bro keep old drivers 94.74 or 169.71 and you would never have an issue
by the way do u see dots all over the screen with black back ground that was my experience with this driver version

If you are getting no post display on boot up (dell spash screen, and windows loading screen):
First step is to plug a different monitor into the computer. If this works you most likely have a bad monitor. If not then it is a hardware issue with the video card on the computer.
If you getting the post screen then you may have your resolution set to high, boot in safe mode (F8 on the key board right after the post screen) and chose safe mode. once windows comes up, right click the back ground and chose a lower resolution setting.
So what exactly is wrong? It seems like you have dual screen enabled. Try mousing beyond the edge of you PC screen, the cursor may move onto the TV. If you don't want dual screen, there's an option for clone display instead.
Disconnect the AC power.
Physically remove the "add-on" video-card,
to force the motherboard to use the "integrated' video-card.
Connect the AC power,
and boot to see if any video is displayed.
Disconnect the AC power.
Temporarily disconnect the power-cables and data-cables
from the disk-drive, and the CD-drive.
Remove any other "add-in" cards (sound? TV tuner? network?)
If there's more than one stick of RAM, reduce it to one stick.
Connect the AC power,
and boot to see if any video is displayed in this "bare-bones" configuration.
Try the add-in video-card in another computer, just to confirm that it still works.
The most common problem is that the tv dont understand the s-video signal. You can try to change the signal input on the tv to s-video, but it will only work if your tv support's it. I have a s-video to scart but I dont get any collours because my tv can't understand the signal. My solution tip for you are: Get a tv that you are shure can understand the s-video signal.
You can use the yellow RCA cable using an SVideo adaptor. When using dual displays make sure that display number 2 is adtive. To do that move the mouse to display 2 press the right mouse button and select active. Check extend desktop to the monitor to check the signal and press apply. Make sure you are using either an Svideo or RCA signal.
you definitely need to get the drivedr for the svideo option. it wil actually not show you in the device manager the svideo, but the graphics card details only. to find out if you have a secondary display (svideo) you have to go to your display properties then and see if you have dual display. try to bott also your dell with the svideo-tv already connected and see if you get a post display on your tv. now... i need to know only if your svideo is active, drivers will still be need to get the windows work there.
The blue screen indicates a proper connection (signal received by the monitor). Try selecting "amp" on your HTR 2 remote then use any directional button at the center of the remote, the keys which circle the "Enter" button. Hopefully you will then see the menu appear. Use the same directional keys to navigate the menus.
Look the problem it may not your monitor it's your windows XP.
Let me guess you have a VGA/Svideo card. From prior experience I can tell you that dual output Nvidia cards will default to Svideo first, and then "adjust" your windows settings to do so every time even if a VGA monitor is re-connected (HIGHLY ANNOYING).
So if the last thing you see before nothing is the Windows XP boot screen, here's how to fix it.
Boot to safe mode
uninstall your video driver, reboot then reinstall.
You can substitute a system restore for uninstalling your drivers if you can remember when the monitor was last working.
This really really pissed me off when it happened to me.
