well no.., we can be sure that elephantinc has the latest driver.., seems he tried everything.., i did and the first thing i did was get the latest driver for that card..,
Im confused too, and annoyed.., i spent a year trying to find the correct driver, PCI slot, anything
in the end i asked a pro.., and he just kind of off handedly said. it (the card) was too old.
we can get the name of elephantinc's card.., track down the link to the latest driver and he can instal it and hopefully you are correct.., in my case, it didnt work.., the card was a few years old.., i wondered why it was so cheap ($100). i forget what card it was.., nvidea (expensive) pro of some sort.., its at a friends atm.
as i said.., maya 7 was working fine?? so what was the main difference..?? .., after effects 7 worked fine.., but hardware render in maya 8.5 (i forget 8) .., no go joe
take it easy and life will be easy
