Hi, I can not find the driver on nvidia's website for my videocard. I have the 32bit version of Vista Ultimate, and my card is the geforce 7950gt. on the site I go to downloads, then in the boxes I choose graphics driver > geforce and TNT2, and in the last box, I dont know what to put. They have a couple choices, but no 32bit vista. the choices they do have are (not listing all because obvioulsy server and 95 drivers are pointless):
xp/2000
xp mediacenter
xp professional x64
vista x86
vista x64
freebsd
and a few more....

Please help me out. thanks alot! -Nick
 

A:Please help, can not find correct vista driver for my videocard

Dear everyone, To not waste anyone's time I'll try to formulate my question as clear and direct as possible. Additional information that may be important will then be given. In short my question is the following: Is my particular system (HP Elitebook 8570w Mobile Work station, a notebook) compatible with the NVIDIA  Quadro K1000M driver for Linux (x64)?     The following background information may be useful to see where I'm coming from and to be able to answer my question. Background info:In the past I have installed Linux Ubuntu next to the pre-installed Windows 7 on this machine. Everything worked well except for the video card (dragging windows around the screen wasn't smooth which is very irritating). I assumed that I had to install the correct driver for the video card which is also compatible with Linux. Having done a little searching on the internet I tried both a `default' Linux driver as well as a driver form NVIDIA that was supposed to work with a Linux (x64) system. However the problem was not solved and actually became worse as time progessed. Finally I abandoned the Linux system and went back to Windows altoghether.  Now I want to give it another try so I have looked up the driver that is supposed to work with my video card and a Linux (x64) system.  At the tab `additional information' however it says the following: Note that the list of supported GPU products is provided to...

Hi, I have question. I have installed Windows 8.1 on second PC and it already had installed lot of drivers. But most of these drivers are from Microsoft and from year 2006 i think. For example, when I have actually installed by default "High Definition Audio" (Windows provided driver), it is Realtek High Definition audio but driver is outdated. Then I downloaded from Realtek webpage driver, and what should I do now?

1. Is better to uninstall this old driver inside device manager and then open downloaded setup.exe then reboot

OR

2. When I just open setup.exe to install driver?

Which method is correct?

//EDIT

I also want to ask about one thing, when I was installing Windows. When I created new partition with full size of HDD, it has maximum size. But when I format that partition it has like 0.3gb less.

A:Which way is correct, when updating drivers

I just install the newer manufacturer supplied drivers over the existing Windows default driver. It hasn't caused me any issues that I know of. The default drivers will likely just automatically reinstall anyway after a reboot etc.
You'll lose some space to the file system when you format the drive.

Hi there,

I changed video cards and when I updated my drivers for my current card (via CD) my audio drivers were lost. Now I can't hear any audio through my monitor speakers. I then went to the Compaq website, found the original drivers, but when trying to install them there is a pop-up that says I need the Microsoft Bus Driver.

And even before the installation begins it says I must have the Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Bus Driver before I can install the Realtek High Definition Audio Drivers. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where to find them? I am a bit hesitant in doing it myself because I have installed incorrectly in the past. Thanks.

Hello, I've often had this problem in the past where I will format my hard-drive or custom-build a new computer, only to find out months later, that one or more of my device drivers are not up-to-date or compatible with their current driver software...

When starting from scratch, what's the best way to ensure all your device drivers are updated/compatible? Like, for example, how do you personally ensure all your device drivers are up-to-date and compatible when starting anew? Go to the manufacturer's website for every driver? Or what? Are there any software tools out there that can help in this process?

Just curious, because I've always just kind of methodically and tediously gone to every manufacturer's website but I always seem to end up down the road with driver conflict problems...

Any advice here would be useful.
 

A:How do I make sure all of my drivers are correct/up-to-date?

The best option as you have already surmised is to go to the manufacturers websites.
Commonly there aren't a great deal of driver updates to check, but the ones that should be updated, especially if you are planning on migrating to Windows 7 are:

Motherboard manufacturer for:
Chipset driver, LAN driver, audio driver (if onboard), video driver (if onboard).

Video card driver (if discrete/seperate):
nVidia : from manufacturer preferably if GeForce 7xxx series or earlier, or direct from nVidia if unavailable, or 8xxx series or later.
ATI Radeon: Direct from ATI

Soundcard (if discrete/seperate) from manufacturer, also peripherals (printers, camera's, (some) keyboards and mice, scanners, copiers etc.)

To minimize driver conflicts I would only download one driver per component and use the correct procedure for updating drivers (i.e. close down all other applications before installing).

BEFORE updating drivers I would strongly recommend that you create a System Restore point and check for the drivers functionality, and repeat the process for each driver.

If you are unsure then please post back with your system information.

I would not recommend any all-in-one driver solutions at all.

It tells me everything about my computer, the name of the hardware, and much more.
After looking up my hardware, i google search the latest drivers using the information from Everest.

Is anybody familiar with this program? How accurate is the information it provides?
Is there a better way?

I've looked up drivers in the past and there were so many options to choose from sometimes, i didn't even know where to begin to look to figure it out.

Any feedback or tips would be appreciated.

In vista i used to go into safe mode , add remove nvidia drivers and reboot into normal mode it would install the standard vga drivers. However with windows 7 when you reboot into normal mode it installs these wddm(?) drivers and reboots.

Have the old nvidia drivers been uninstalled? and can i just install any previous beta's or new betas over the top?

EDIT : Just installed over the top of the default windows 7 nvidia drivers on uninstalled reboot, seems to work fine so i'll see how it goes!.

A:Correct way to uninstall nvidia drivers?

You can have 2 option:

- Download the newest driver for your nVIDIA card, use the Un-install feature of the soft to remove the current driver then re-install.

- Use a clearly uninstall program, I suggest to use Your Uninstaller Pro 2008. You can find this software at 9down.com.

I have use these way for my nVIDIA 8600M GT and also my Ati Radeon Mobility 3670, both working well. Hope it good for you too.

I've been having a heck of a time getting the correct chipset drivers for a Gateway NE522. The machine originally came installed with Windows 8 and of course I want windows 7 on it. I cant seem to find the right chipset drivers and SM Bus drivers so that the laptop will see the touchpad. Everything else works fine but for some reason it doesn't recognize the touchpad. Help!!

A:Gateway Ne522 needs correct chipset drivers

Hi Looking at the Getway Website ... It seems they do not provide Chipset Drivers .. For a lot of their Models ..

It could be included in one of the Applications ..
I think the Chipset you need is the AMD A68M Fusion

toshikijima, you helped me last year with a problem I was having with finding the correct drivers for windows 7 ethernet controllers on a p4s800d-x motherboard. I am having the same exact problem again and I need to find the correct drivers. Here are my hardware ID`s for both ethernet controllers. The first controller is PCI\VEN_1039&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_80A71043 And the second is PCI\VEN_1317&DEV_0985&SUBSYS_05701317 I will appreciate anyone`s help with my problem...Thanks

A:I need to find the correct ethernet controller drivers.

for VEN_1039 try here - it's a Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] chip (there's an old thread on these forums about it too).
for VEN_1317 try here - it's a SMC EZ Card 10/100

If nothing else, use a search engine - google, bing, ... for those two device id's.
VEN_1039&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_80A71043 and VEN_1317&DEV_0985&SUBSYS_05701317

Hello Sevenforums

Just got my system ack up and running, and now i have run into a bit of an issue, preventing me from validating my windows and doing most things.

I made a total restart, and have only stock windows 7 HoPr installed. When i tried to install a missing screen driver, i noticed that i was unable to go to the internet. I apparently have missing Ethernet and network controller drivers. Obviously, one would normally hit the update driver button, but since i do not have any means of getting the computer connected to the internet. i cannot.

So put it simple: I need to know how and where to download the missing drivers. And if there are any specific procedures, i will need some kind of tutoring, as i am kinda new to most of these things.

Additional info: It is a Desktop pc. The green flashing light where the cable goes is not flashy, at all. its solid green.

A:Freshly installed win 7 Missing drivers. (not sure if correct tab)

Go to the Support Downloads webpage for your model to download the ethernet or LAN driver to stick or CD, install as Admin on the PC.

Then go directly to Windows Updates to do all of your Important and Optional Updates which should deliver any newer drivers.

If any drivers are missing after all Updates are done, import them also from the Support Downloads webpage for the PC or Device model.

All of this is in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

I've aquired this older computer AMD 333mHz, 64mb RAM, 4MB Diamond Stealth II S220 video, Aurora Vision (Shinho) SM583B Monitor, d-link 10/100 nic. I cloned a hard drive I had currently (HDD was clean upon arrival). (Running win98se) I Installed a CD-ROM drive, downloaded and installed the video driver, downloaded and installed the Monitor driver. The software for the video driver is running, the display settings show that I can change the screen area all the way up to 1600x1200, and Show that I can adjust the color to 32 bit. Whenever I try and adjust these, windows tells me it will take a few seconds, the screen may flicker and then informs me that my desktop has been changed, do I want to keep the settings? The thing is, everything is still the same. I already unistalled/installed the video card, switched PCI slots, restated windows several times after changing the settings, switched between large/small fonts. What to try next? The max this display will give me is 640X480, 256 colors...
 

A:Display settings not correct, drivers installed

When you change the settings, before you click ok (I think) you should see a change in the little preview window'
Do you see that change?

John

PS you should also see a little dialog box that says do you want to save (keep?) these changes. If you don't say yes it defaults back to old settings.

I apologize if this has already been discussed, I've just recently joined the forum. My main hard drive recently failed. I got a new one, reinstalled windows and got my graphics card and everything else installed, along with drivers. I cannot seem to get my system to get my audio back up and running. I have an XPS 420 running Vista Home Premium 64 with HDA 7.1 channel audio. I know I need RealTek but every time i try to install it, it doesn't "take" and just recognizes it as "High Definition Audio Device". Also, I had an IDT Control Center that came along with it. The drivers on my disc didn't seem to work, the only luck I've had is a Sigmatel codec but it doesn't appear to have everything that everything back to the way it was after the install. Any help would be insanely appreciated.

A:Clean Install, Cannot get correct audio drivers

Did you get your Realtek from here?

I'm preparing to buy an SSD for my HPE-570t One of the steps that one of the acronis Videos says to do, download all of your drivers from your computer manufacter's website. HP lists 17 "Original Drivers" for my model. My question is: of those 17 which are specific to my 570t? And should I be downloading the original drivers, from when I bought this computer? As an aside, I did have to upgrade the Nvidia driver for my GT440 , (from NVidia's site,) to get the "Nvidia Inspector" (a 3rd paty program,)  to work. OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit Here's a video explaining the process. I hope that enlightens those who may need more information... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIl2L0OjZks Thanks in advance, Chef_D

hi all i have no sound on a HP XT983 after instaling a new harddrive i can't seem to find the correct sound driver please help
 

A:HP Pavillion XT983 correct soud drivers

HP publishes updates to Pavilion Desktop software and drivers. If no updates are available, you already have the latest software and drivers from HP on your system.
HP Pavilion systems with Windows XP do not come with recovery CDs. Use the following steps to restore a software application or driver in Windows XP:
Click Start, All Programs, HP Tools, and then Application Recovery.
In the Recovery window, select either Drivers or Applications as desired and click Next.
Select the software driver or application that is to be reinstalled and click Next.
The driver or application will automatically be installed. Some programs will take longer to install than others.

You may also obtain updated software and drivers from the manufacturer of the specific software or hardware, or by using Windows Update .
Since you have installed a new HD and, I assume an OS, you will have lost HP Tools and Application recovery. Try windows update

I looked through installation guides for the recommended installation order for drivers after a clean Windows 8 installation from Windows 8 disc. I also spoke to Tech Support but keep getting conflicting advice so I thought I would try posting here.
The question I have is regarding the Intel Chipset drivers. I know that they must be installed first before any other drivers. The confusion I have is regarding the Intel AMT HECI drivers (Intel Management Engine Interface) which are also listed as Chipset drivers.
Previous Support Technicians have always said that the Intel AMT HECI drivers installation order is not important so can be installed anytime. They always say Intel Chipset software must be done first though.
On Dells site there is a driver order installation guide which shows HECI drivers way down on the installation order too.
The other day I was speaking to a guy over the phone on tech support who told me that you should install the Intel Chipset software, then the HECI drivers next!!
The reason I ask is I did a clean Windows 8 installation only last week. I installed the Intel Chipset software first and I have installed other drivers including Graphics and Wireless Network drivers. My HECI drivers were installed later. Will this cause me problems or will it be OK?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks very much in advance.

A:Installing drivers in the correct order after clean Install

There is no order for installing drivers, unless specified, for instance, when you're downloading a driver, you might find a notification that says, "pls install driver xxxxxx before this one".
The reason that it is common to install the main chipset first, is so as to get proper access to peripherals like USB ports, wifi cards, etc, but it truly makes no difference which order you do them.

Hi, my issues are two-fold.

After asking the guys at the shop who put my computer together to partition the hard drive, they must've forgotten.

I'm a full-time student heading toward a level 6 diploma in ICT, just started learning diskpart, etc. So it's good practice for me to make right what they didn't do.

Have read many forums trying to work out what to do because I can only shrink this Western Digital (WD5000AAKS) 500GB to half it's size (when what I really want is Windows 7 on C drive at only 50GB's).

Have tried a custom install but it asks me for SATA drivers which I cannot for the life of me find to download.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Pauli

P.S: The second part of the problem is RAM related, should I fix that first before doing the fresh install, or? I purchased 4GB of RAM but right clicking computer properties shows Installed memory (RAM): 2.00 GB. Right-clicking on my-PC and choosing properties does show 2 yellow warnings with exclamation marks. The first one is PCI Simple Communications Controller but clicking the update driver part comes back with "Windows was unable to install your..." Windows could not find driver software for your device. It doesn't have any driver provider details (Unkown) so not sure how to go about fixing that?
And the second exclamation mark says Unkown Device (could that be the missing RAM?)

A:Correct SATA Drivers for hard disk controller?

1. What kind of motherboard do you have? You'll have to go to their site and get the SATA/RAID drivers for your board.
2. 32 or 64 bit? 32 bit will only recognize up to 3.0 or 3.5 GB of RAM.
