Correct Nvidia Driver?

I had been long trouble-free using my current setup, but now have constant Solidworks hangs and also residual graphics (an old graphic that won't go away).

Dell M90 3GB ram, XP SP2
Nvidia Quadro FX 2500M
Driver Version 8.4.2.9
Solidworks 2007 SP3.?

What is the correct driver? I don't even find it listed on the Nvidia page:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/IO_20010601_3381.html
or Solidworks page:
http://www.solidworks.com/page...videocardtesting.html

I did previously download two different driver programs;
for Solidworks:
84.26_forceware_winxp2k_english_whql.exe
for Abaqus:
91.36_forceware_quadro_winxp2k_english_whql.exe
I cannot remember if I ever used the Abaqus one. Abaqus is running fine.

Last tidbit, the most important one. I had used a GretagMacbeth i1 screen calibrator for Photoshop work, and recently noticed in Task Manager that (conflicting calibration) Abode Gamma Loader was still functioning even tho it was removed from the startup folder. I disabled it from startup in msconfig, and doubly renamed the Adobe Gamma Loader.exe file to .exeOLD to neuter it.

I'm reinstalling the i1 and Soliworks now, but will want to repair the video driver if there is no chance. Can anyone confirm the correct driver, thanks.
