Thanks for the work around. I finally got around to recovering my old style panel. It worked for me using the Dell 84.69 drivers as the other driver, without using drivercleaner pro. A few false starts but got there in the end. I have an 7800gtx on 9300 with dell a05 bios
From 84.69 dell stock, installed tweakrrus modded 92.77, got blue screen of death. Rebooted normally, had no video display panel visible at all (nothing) but was in 1440x900 ok, dirver detail had nvidia 23rd october 2006; reran tweakrus 92.77 install, rebooted normally, had option to select the old style panel. Didn't get any file overwrite messages at all. Wierd but working now.
Hopefully Nvidia get their act together and keep the old style control panel in the future. I have a real problem trying to tweak the screen with the new style; it sucks big time. It would be good it the color adjustments set with the old style panel would "keep" when we switched to the new style, so we could see what is equivalent.
Not done any testing yet, thats next, play some games and make some puppies

2. reboot as asked BUT GO RIGHT INTO SAFE MODE WITH VGA SUPPORT
3. Reinstall the Dell Drivers, It will tell you that some of the files are newer than the ones you are currently trying to install. just say yes to replacing them (it will prompt for about 10 of them)
4. Reboot normally
When you are done with this you will have the classic control panel option available again.
I want to be clear about this process.
I had mine set up this way when I ran 3d06 the first time and scored 59 and change. and this is actually how I have been running my machine (with the unmodded dell drivers) for the last couple of weeks with 0 issues.
