    try this, i already have nv4_disp inthe first part.....:




    Open up regedit and browse to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\nv4\Device0

    In the right window, find the key called InstalledDisplayDrvivers . Right now it says nv4 (just nv4 nothing else). Right click on it and choose "Modify" and change it to read nv4_disp.

    Also check at the:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\nv\Device0

    and do the same if necessary. Now, go into notepad and paste this:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\NVTweak\OemConfigurations]
    "ControlsOverride"=dword:00000001

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management]
    "LargePageMinimum"=dword:ffffffff

    Now, save that as nvidiatweak.reg and then go to the folder you saved it in, and double click it and then it will be merged into the registry. Now reboot your machine and see the results.

    Doesn't do anything for me.

    I decided to run it against my 3dmark score before and after, doing 3 runs and averaging the 3 each time.

    It didn't change it, averages are too close to give any weight to this tweak.

    Re: Doesn't do anything for me.

    And further - after playing SOF2, I found quite a bit of flashing and artifacting that wasn't present before, so I ended up undoing these changes.

    easy ;)

    if you had to edit something in the registry all you'd have to do is export what you were editing and import it afterwards :)

    I tried it and my system kept crashing and saying that NV4.DLL was causing the problems.
