Hello, I got a "NVIDIA Quadro NVS" graphic card and I cannot create a HAL directX device. Only the REF device is available and even the "caps viewer" from the SDK sees only the REF device. I got the latest driver from NVIDIA and I work in dual screen mode under windows XP. Do I have to configure something else to enable the hal device or is this NVIDIA card incompatible with directX? Thanks.

Is it actually a 3D card? I had a look arround Google, and everything seems to say it's a business solution for having multiple displays; it doesn't seem to say anything about it actually being a "real" 3D card.

The NVS cards are specifically designed for professional 2d work - I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't incorporate 3d rasterization hardware.
Based on my above post, and if you're correct - then does that mean "professional OpenGL and DirectX applications" is 2D... implying that 3D is unprofessional?? [lol]

Oh, and I don't think I've ever seen a case where three DirectX MVP's managed to post replies within 4 minutes of each other and within 20 minutes of the original question [grin]

Try removing all Nvidia drivers from the system before you reinstall, as is recommended. I had some troubles a couple of years ago, when the new driver installer didn't properly clean up after the previous version. This led to a situation where Windows didn't regard the card as a 3d accelerator, and the card-specific property pages didn't work at all. An install of the generic VGA driver, a reboot, and a clean install of the new driver fixed this.

Nevertheless, I think that NVS line is specifically meant to be 2D cards.

The "professional" meaning depends on who they are trying to sell the cards to - stock brokers seldom model 3d stuff or play latest games during work [wink]
