    I've been having fun lately playing the game Black and White on my Dell 2405FPW monitor in widescreen. That game is notoriously twitchy to get running under Windows XP, but I managed it in the end.

    One odd thing, though: any version of NVIDIA's driver up to 71.89 makes the game run very nicely, but driver versions 77.72 and onwards make it go completely mad - stray polygons flashing all over the place.

    Does anyone know what it was that NVIDIA broke in between version 71.89 and version 77.73, and if they have any intention of fixing it?
