Nvidia driver 70.84 and sdl

After updating the nvidia driver to ver. 71.81 I am not able to run sdl
apps. anymore

When running the below shown code I get the following error when executing
SDL_SetVideoMode :

Caption : nVidia OpenGl driver

Text : Driver component sizes mis-match. Retry to keep going. Cancel
to exit.

Can anyone help

Best regards

// Include all necessary headers.


#include <SDL/SDL.h>


  • Common stuff we need


bool running = true;


*SDL Stuff we need


SDL_Surface* screen;

SDL_Event event;


  • Initializes the Hello World


void init()



  • Here we initialize SDL as we would do with any SDL application.



screen = SDL_SetVideoMode(640, 480, 32, SDL_OPENGL);

// We want unicode


// We want to enable key repeat



int main(int argc, char **argv)



return 0;
