    NVIDIA 77.72 Drivers

    I originally posted in the off-topic forum because it has to do with my desktop PC and not my car PC but I realized that some people use NVIDIA cards in their carputers and I thought I'd share what I found.
    I updated my video drivers to 77.72 for BF2 and ran into a bunch of problems. Firstly, video looked crappy. It turns out that this is really easy to fix, and is just a gamma problem.

Just open the control with the little menu that slides out to the left and select "Color Correction" that has brightness, contrast, gamma. Don't mess with those, just switch from standard mode to advanced mode. As soon as you switch, the video will look great again. Then hit OK.
    The only extra thing I had to do was change the "apply settings to" box to "all".
    Second, HL2 and CS:Source wouldn't run. I found this that details the problem. The solution was:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Video\{F5857C38-087A-4CD1-98DD-D4DF85D1A681}\0000 (you can have other numbers) and in 0000 find _hl2 code and delete or rename (i had 2 codes with hl2), you must delete or rename in first folder.

    If you have any question go to mirc, server irc.lv channel #MPBNC , sorry for my grammatic, i am russian
    This solution worked for me too
    I hear that FarCry doesn't work with these drivers either, and I believe that the solution is the same as for HL2 but I haven't had a chance to try that as a huge storm is raging outside my house at the moment and I need to log off.

    So that's all there is to fixing NVIDIA's latest driver SNAFU. Good luck with fixing your problems!
