I have an Asus P3C2000 mobo that's an Intel Camino chipset and use an Asus V6600 pure w/SGRAM Gforce 256 video card. I'm using Nvidia 6.50 drivers for the video card and would like to know if anyone who also uses these drivers for their Gforce card have been experiencing the computer to fail to respond when it goes into standby or sleep mode in windows 98. I recently switched to these drivers and it seems that the Nvidia drivers may be the cause. Or is there another reason for my computer stops responding while in standby or sleep mode. Ideas anyone?

I'm not sure how to answer your problem but I would get the detenator drivers if you could mine are the 758 drivers [last three numbers] i believe these are the latest official drivers you can find the link in this forum, also most guys i know dissable sleep mode or standby.

Its a bug of 6.50 drivers.

After you come out of Standby mode, the Geforce is OVERCLOCKED on top of the current video card Speed, therefore the system is unstable.

Very common, this was reported like right after the 6.50 was released. Though no action was taken by Nvidia to fix it. (Like make a 6.50A or something)
