I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello all.

Not sure what the deal is, but Win10 keeps automatically downloading NVIDIA graphics drivers and software, even though I don't have any NVIDIA hardware. The proper Microsoft graphics drivers are installed.

I did google this and tried to "hide" these updates via some Powershell commands, but everytime I delete the NVIDIA drivers, windows just redownloads them.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Windows keeps downloading NVIDIA graphics drivers

Ever had Nvidia hardware? Perhaps search the registry and see what comes up. be careful before changing things in there though.....

A:Latest NVIDIA GeForce Graphics Drivers for Windows 8

Currently experiencing some sporadic problems with this driver. Basically, I get pink/purple artifacts across the screen and then the system locks up. Sometimes it is able to recover, but sometimes it automatically reboots. It's not the card, as it is working perfectly in the other OSes with the latest appropriate drivers.

Been checking the NVidia forums about this, and I'm not the only one with this problem: Windows 8 Graphic Glitch - NVIDIA Forums and Windows 8 Consumer Preview Geforce Desktop/Notebook Driver Information - NVIDIA Forums - Page 6 describes the symptoms I'm getting perfectly.

It should be pointed out though that issues were present with the graphics drivers with the Beta versions of Windows 7 as well (not necessarily the same issues, but issues nonetheless). Hopefully, these will be ironed out over time.

Hello all.

I have recently bought a new Windows 7 system and am having a problem installing the graphics card drivers. The store I bought it from pre-installed the OS and all the drivers, and when I fired up the computer for the first time, it got to the point just after the "starting windows" screen - the glowing windows logo desktop background appeared, but the mouse pointer, icons, task bar, start button, etc. did not appear, and I could do nothing at that point other than turn off the computer. So I restarted the computer, booted in safe mode, used system recovery to restore to a previous point, and then I was able to start the computer properly. Then using the process of elimination I figured out that the graphics card drivers were causing the hanging problem.

The card is an Nvidia GeForce 210 512MB.

The other specs for the computer are as follows:

Motherboard: MSI H55M-E33
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
CPU: Intel i7 870

So how can I get around this problem with my graphics card drivers stopping Windows 7 from starting properly? I was trying to install the latest driver package available from Nvidia's website.

A:Windows 7 hangs on startup after installing Nvidia graphics drivers

I had a similar problem: I downloaded the driver for my Nvidia GF 8200 M G graphics card from NVidia's website, and when I started the setup program, it told me that I didn't have required hardware or software.

To solve this problem, I suggest you to use a software called DriverMax (available from Download DriverMax and update your Windows Vista drivers, a short registration is needed after installing it) In the main window, click "Check for driver updates", and the results will be shown in your web browser. Find your graphics adapter, and download the driver for it. Your browser will attempt to download a file with a .dmx-info extension, that's only an information file, which contains, from where the driver needs to be acquired.

After adding the driver to the downlaod list, wait until it's downloaded. Then click Install drivers. After the procedure a system reboot will be required.

I hope it helped.

I am looking to sort out my graphics drivers for my new computer and just want to make sure I get it right and so avoid any kind of nightmare, I am sure some of you will be able to point me in the right direction....

I have a GTS250 card installed on my PC running windows 7 64 bit. It is currently using the standard windows drivers would have automatically installed when the computer was put together. I would like to change these to the proper Nvidia drivers so I can have the control panel and more control etc.

This is what I think I need to do:
1. Download correct Nvidia drivers and save somewhere
2. Uninstall the GTS250 device in device manager with remove the software option
3. Boot in safe-mode and run a driver cleaner thingy (which one is free and best??)
4. Restart and run the Nvidia install program

Is this correct? Is it necessary to use a driver sweeper? I have read that the generic driver can just be installed over but I am not sure about this. Is it the uninstall option that I need to use? I have also read that windows will automatically re-install the generic driver from a ?store?, how can I stop this happening?

Sorry for all the questions! I have only ever done this sort of thing once before (integrated graphics to a proper card on my old PC) and your help is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance


P.S If this has been covered before, I apologise! Please link me to it!

A:Installing Nvidia graphics drivers

I am also running Win 7 64 bit.

I created a folder - NVIDIA - under Program files and installed the drivers to that folder. When a new driver version comes out, I empty the folder and install the newer version to it.

(D/L from NVIDIA to Download folder, right click on file and Run As Administrator)

(Just got through doing it this morning, as a matter of fact.)

I'd delete the current drivers from Control Panel - Programs and Features, if in fact they show up there.

I've never used a driver sweeper.

How do you like the card, I was looking at one on Newegg today. I believe it has an HDMI output.

So, i as using windows 8 Rtm. I had installed the windows 7 drivers for my Sony Vaio VGN-AR730e, which has an Nvidia GeForce 8400m Gt graphics card. Everything was fine for a few days, and then it shut off. When I turned it back on, the opening splash screen before windows (i'm aware bios isn't viewable anymore, shame...) had green lines going halfway through the screen, and every screen that has the blinking cursor at the top left also has a lot of apostrophes all over the screen.

I tried getting the 302.80 nvidia graphics card and it says it won't work, as well. I can't install any other operating system other than windows 8, nothing else will load. What did windows do to my computer?

Hi all,

I was playing Assassin's Creed (about 10 minutes ago) when this started. Every minute or so, the screen blacks out for about 3 seconds before coming back again. A message pops up saying the display drivers have stopped responding and then have recovered again. The problem is getting more frequent by the minute and now blacks out after about 20 seconds.

Will updating my drivers fix this problem? I'm pretty pissed though as I assassinated one of the main 'dudes' in AC and now I've got to do it all over again. Any ideas? I've attached a screenshot of the problem.


A:NVIDIA Graphics Drivers Stopped Responding

Hello Jaidyn.

You're using NVIDIA's latest driver, which appears to be problematic if reports are to be believed.

Try rolling back to the previous version: 270.61. as going for the latest driver all the time can be counter-productive until any bugs have been ironed out.

You might want to consider whether you've over-clocked too much?

Okay that was worst idea i ever had, i installed nvidia drivers. I downloaded it from website and unfortunatley i chose to automatically find drivers. As everyone expects, it downloaded wrong driver for me.
Now it only allows 640x480 resolution, and the screen is messed and in crazy colours.
I can uninstall drivers, but if i do this - i think - i wont be able to boot my windows again. because it happened once before and i had to reinstall windows.
i have geforce fx 5900 (i think, but im not sure - actually thats why i chose 'auto find')

I cant do system restore... its turned off for me.

A:Solved: nvidia drivers killed my graphics

Try going to device manager and roll back the driver..Also you should be able to boot in to "safe mode"...restart and hit F8 until you get a screen with "would you like to run windows in safe mode". Use the up-down keys and enter.. Once in safe mode then find the device manager..and change your driver back one. It has a list.

Hi, this is an issue with Alienware Graphics Amplifier. I have the nvidia GTX 1070 and downloaded the latest nvidia 372.54 drivers. However, there was performance issue and the frame rates for games have dropped. Specifically, Rise of the Tomb Raider running at 1440p has dropped to 55fps on average.
I have since rolled back the drivers to the previous nvidia 368.81 drivers and the frame rates have gone back up to 70. Anyone having the same issue?

A:How many drivers for NVidia Graphics Card - HP dv6-2173cl

Hi: HP puts all of the available drivers for the entire model series on each specific model's support page. So you do not need to, and should not install the Intel graphics adapter. That would be for dv6-21xx notebooks that come with the onboard Intel HD graphics adapter.

Hey everyone. I was trying to update my Nvidia graphics card driver and other software using Windows Update but it keeps failing. I used the Windows Update Troubleshooter and it made some changes but it did not fix my problem. I was trying to fix the problem using the Microsoft help site but I was getting confused so I am going to need additional one-on-one help. So anyway, these are the two updates I am trying to install:

NVIDIA driver update for NVIDIA GeForce 9100

nVidia - Other hardware - NVIDIA GeForce 9100

I keep getting the following message from Windows Update:

Some updates didn't finish downloading. We'll keep trying.

Error code: (0x80246007)

I have been having problems installing these updates for several days now. I believe it was telling me before that only part of the update got downloaded or a file was corrupted or something but my memory isn't too great right now. That was before I ran the Windows Update Troubleshooter tool.

So anyway, I'd greatly appreciate some help in updating my drivers.

I use Toshiba M645 Laptop that has two graphic cards
with NVIDIA Optimus Technology. (Auto-swicthing graphics processors)
Now I have some vga problems and driver questions below:

1. Intel HD Graphics <-Why can't install driver from Intel official website?, driver not supports!
, but the driver in Toshiba website can be installed fine as well.
What's wrong with that? Was it mean "Intel HD Graphics" has more than one type, several of model classes?
or it must related to the chipset of Toshiba laptop's mainboard?

2. NVIDIA Geforce GT330M <-How to use only this vga stand alone?, I tried to disable Intel HD Graphics from device manager
and then the monitor was not in use, black screen was displayed.
So, I tried to disable Intel HD Graphics in safe mode, no black screen
, but the next normal boot it was displayed like GT330M was not in use
(can't config NVIDIA tools, it was disappeared from control panel), but it was still enabled in device manager.

Now, I just updated Intel HD Graphics driver, a mouse lag in Aero themes taskbar effect was fixed,
also the video framerate fault was fixed too.

Hope someone can give the solutions, how to fix these problems.
Thanks in advance.

A:Intel HD Graphics + NVIDIA Geforce [Drivers & Usage problems]

1. Main reason the Intel reference driver won't work is it hasn't been modified to work with the second card (applies to laptops with either Nvidia or AMD for the second card). Same applies to the Nvidia driver, it requires the Intel driver to be installed before it can be installed.

2. From what I have seen the Nvidia card (or AMD if so equipped) can be made to run all the time only when the laptop is plugged in and you change the power settings to high performance. If that doesn't get it working all the time here may be another setting that needs to be changed. If that is the case going to have to wait on someone with a similar setup for more info.

Whatever drivers i install for my graphics card i.e. latest drivers,older drivers (they are the right ones) or drivers of lower spec cards my display seems to dismantle. My display and screen will look crisp and will load up faster than usual with the drivers installed. But after about 4 or 5 times after restarting my pc or turning it off my display seems to go down to 4 bit and the screen size automatically changes to 800x600 when the original settings are at 32 bit and 1280x1024. I can only fix this problem if i uninstall the drivers and then the display is OK apart from the fact that i cannot change any of the advanced display properties e.g. screen refresh rate. Also i cannot play some games as they require a fully working graphics card. Also it does restrict me to watching my movies in good quality. There is no problem with the monitor because i have installed/uninstalled the drivers and still i have the same problem with each monitor. This is a very weird problem and i think it could be down to faulty graphics card or the heat of the case or system. The Case temp is about 52 and SYS temp is about 40 but this doest seem to high. Thanx for any help anybody gives me. P.S. i will now be getting a Nvidia 64 mb geforce 4 card as im getting it for free. You think that will display my movies in good quality?(these movies are dvd quality movies or actual dvd's. Thanx

A:Hi i hav a sparkle Nvidia 5200 128mb graphics card and have a drivers problem.

Did you remove the other drivers when you installed the newer/older ones? Try removing them and restarting. To remove them, right click on My Computer->Properties->Hardware->Device Manager and look for your video card entries. Right click on them and choose Remove. Restart and it should ask for the drivers. Install the newer ones if you can.

I just updated my graphics driver to the latest from the Nvidia website, and I was again disappointed to find that the bug I reported to them long ago was still not fixed. For some reason, despite what I prefer to name "My Computer," it is always renamed to "My Computer" on startup (since I installed the drivers). I'll admit, this is not a serious issue, but it is bothersome as I use "My Computer" as a toolbar in my taskbar, and the extended name skews icon placement, etc.

I'm curious if I am the only person having this problem, and if not, if there is any solution. Any information is appreciated. The Nvidia site offers no assistance whatsoever. I will never purchase Nvidia again.

To note: I am running WinXP Home Edition, AMD Athlon XP 2600, 896MB RAM (128 On-Board GFX [Nvidia GeForce4]). I think this is all the information that is applicable

Thank you in advance,

1. Control Panel=>Windows Update=>Change Settings=>"Download updates but let me choose whether to install them".
2. Download the latest driver for your card from the nvidia website.
3. Go to Device Manager, select your display adaptor, and uninstall it, choose to also delete drivers when prompted.
4. Reboot computer into safe mode by pressing f8 when the computer boots, when prompted to install new display driver choose "never install a driver for this device"
5. Navigate to c:\windows\system32\drivers\ and rename the file nvlddmkm.sys to nvlddmkm_old.sys. Take note of the date of this file
6. Navigate to c:\windows\system32 and rename any other file of the same date as nvlddmkm.sys which begins with the letters 'nv'

nvd3dumx.dll becomes nvd3dumx_old.exe

Hi there,
On windows update I have an update available for NVIDIA driver update for NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M. Each time I try to install it, it failed.

Through NVDIA control panel, it appeared that I have already the last driver version installed.

As a Windows Insider for windowss 10, I had it preinstalled and running since then and I would like to know whether it is a bug or whatever?

The official released date for Windows 10, was on th 29th of july 2015. Do I need to upgrade it again?



A:Windows 10 pb with NVIDIA drivers

Not sure if this will help, but since I run Win10 in a VM, I had to set my video drivers to "basic" drivers, reboot, and then I was able to upgrade to Win10 (from 8.1). After that, I was able to update my video drivers (built by VMWare) with no issues. You may need to do the same (or something similar) for your NVidia drivers.

I have several problems with windows xp.

First, sometimes the system will hang for a while - the mouse works, but when I click nothing happens for maybe a minute, then it 'catches up' (everything I clicked a minute ago responds like it should, all it once).

Second, I get a BSOD very frequently (when playing GTA1, most of the time, usually starting a game or switching resolutions). It mentions nv4_disp.dll, so should I get a different version of the drivers? I've heard of people having problems with nvidia and windows xp. Is there a specific driver version that you recommend? I've heard the latest versions aren't always the best.

3) Doom 3 Flickers BADLY with any official/beta nvidia driver in use ( 185.20 e.t.c ) , this is not fixed by any form of Config editing or control panel changing. Thus far only the windows 7 update driver works with doom 3 , however its an old driver and as above scaling isn't working. SyncMaster T240 HDMI/VGA/DVI/USB 24

i have flickers so i switch off my disply and switch on agine and its gone every time i start my win7

I just bought a 9800GT and clean reinstall of Windows 7 and the problem is that the drivers don't detect any lower resolutions below 800x600 and doesn't detect that my CRT old monitor supports a refresh rate of 120.

I usually play video games at 800x600 @ 100hz refresh rate making it very smooth, but now I'm forced to use 85hz with the largest capable resolution being 1070 by XXXXX, can't remember :P.

I've updated windows, installed the latest drivers (197.13), reinstalled the drivers and tried creating a custom resolution via Nvidia drivers and other software without success. Another problem is that saturation and hue aren't working. I'm quite frustrated by this playing in black and white and laggy gameplay, I desperately need some help :(

Thanks in advance to who ever posts on this thread :)

A:Windows 7 Nvidia Drivers

Update: I just relised that the driver version 197.13 I'm using was released yesterday and is WHQL and from what I've read is still currently being tested? And may include some bugs. I rolled back to 196.34 and the same result except saturation and hue work! I'm not certain if the uninstall of the newer driver was completely successful. I tried looking updating my monitor drivers but they are already updated.

Hi All,

just after installing Windows 7 on my laptop and i have discovered an issue with the taskbar along the bottom...

When i move my mouse pointer towards the bottom of the screen, another one starts to appear as if from off the screen!!!

Now be careful everyone and stop typing... let me finish...

i have tried a few things already and discovered some shocking facts about Dell (yes i know, i've got a dell) and Nvidia who believe they are the leader in graphic technology!!!!

first i booted to safe mode.. glich gone! resolution bad.....
booted back to normal windows and changed the resolution to a really big one and gone again!

i have uninstalled the driver and tried installing one in every possible compatability mode, yet all i get is failure!!
So where do i go now? Nividia's website? They dont support me cause my machine is an OEM and Dell? They will only give me drivers for xp and 32bit Vista or they say "your warranty has expired sir, i cannot help you" (in my best Apu accent)

Don't ge me wrong, Nvidia's website does have loads of drivers for Windows 7 x64 but sadly not for me!!!

Can anyone help?

System--- Dell XPSM1210
GPU--- Nvidia Geforce Go 7400
OS--- Windows 7 64bit

P.S. I've tried Windows Update

Thats why I don't use NVidia...

I just installed Windows 7 Professional x64 yesterday, and It will not recognize my 512MB Nvidia GeForce 9600M GT hardware. Therefore I am unable to install any drivers, as it does not recognize the hardware at all. Is there a fix for this or will I have to wait until HP officially recognizes windows 7, and releases a guide?

A:Windows 7 Does Not Recognize my Nvidia Graphics Card

I did a search on the forums and found your solution -=> Here
Once you have downloaded the correct driver, go to the device manager, locate the display adapter, update driver and point to the new driver that you downloaded... Hope this helps..

I have a Nvidia GeForce2 mx200 64mb graphics card and am running Windows XP. I am having problems installing the graphics card. I have downloaded the latest drivers from Nvidia and the manufacturers of the card, Jetway, but am still unable to install it. When i look at the card on device manager i get 'This device cannot start. (Code 10)' however i know the card works as i had no problems when i was using Windows 98 orWindows ME. I have uninstalled and reinstalled numerous times, removed it from the AGP slot and replaced, there is nothing else i can think of that i could try.
If anyone has any other ideas, i will try anything, i am looking to take it into a computer shop tomorrow to be looked at so any ideas before then???

There are new Nvidia Beta drivers for Windows 7 both 32 and 64 bit.
181.71 released 3/2/2009

NVIDIA Graphics Supercharge Microsoft Windows 7

A:New Nvidia Beta drivers, 181.71 for Windows 7

Will give these a try - thanks.

Apparently these supercharge the Windows 7 experience. Is this just marketing guff? I was under the impression that the Windows 7 experience was pretty much identical to the Vista experience in terms of graphics APIs.

edit: just read that these drivers support WDDM 1.1 on 8. 9. and above hardware so performance is enhanced over Vista. We'll see

So I've upgraded my laptop from vista 32-bit to windows 7 32-bit. For somereason, no matter what version of nvidia laptop drivers i try, once it goes to reboot, the computer will hang after the 'windows loading' screen and never reach the login screen. From there i'm brought to the startup repair, which doesn't do anything. However, when the drivers are removed, my computer boots fine using the windows standard vga graphics driver. Any suggestions?

A:Windows refusing to use nvidia drivers?

Welcome to SF
Which versions of the drivers have you tried?
Where did you get them from?
I've just had a quick look and the most up-to-date is here; http://www.nvidia.com/object/noteboo...6.81_whql.html

With the driver installed after rebooting, enter the advanced boot options (F8, F12 or similar) and choose Disable Driver Signature Enforcement
See how that goes.

I have already a ready usb disk on key with the windows ready for installing.

I have nvidia gtx 770 video card.
Now i have the latest drivers 350.12 but i want to make a new clean install of my windows 8 and the problem is that windows will install the latest drivers but i want it to install drivers version 347.88.

Can i force the windows in the installation options while installing to install the version 347.88 ? If not can i force windows not to install the video card drivers at all so i can install it later ?

And after installing 347.88 can i set somewhere in the windows that it will not try to install in the future the latest video drivers version and only will alert if there is a new version ?

A:How can i install windows 8 without the nvidia drivers ?

windows 8.1 setup media will not install the newest drivers - windows update will - once you get online..

during installation - do not connect to your router (internet) - thus preventing the driver download..

install your 347 driver - connect to the internet and install the updates (this will update all your drivers)
after all the updates are completed. going through device manager Roll back the video driver to 347

if that does not work un-install the 350 driver through device manager and it should roll back to 347

Actually you will have both driver versions on your PC but you will have to tell device manager to roll back to the older version..

you could also block automatic driver updates > control panel > system > advanced system properties > Hardware > device installation settings

Any Help?,
Motherboard is Asus M2N-MX

A:Nvidia Drivers Keep Crashing On Windows 8 Pro.

You have a very old MB and the latest BIOS on their website is dated back in 2008, Drivers are for Vista and will work with Windows 7 but I doubt if it will be completely compatible with Windows 8.
Here's the website for your MB: ASUS - M2N-MX

You could try to download the Video driver for Windows 8 and re-install it to see if it helps.
