Windows 7 Nvidia Graphics Card Problem

Q: Windows 7 Nvidia Graphics Card Problem

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

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.)

Thats why I don't use NVidia...

But have you tried Vista x64 drivers since the 7 didn't work out? They are enough of the same OS it might work...

hi all, i have a NVIDIA GeForce 6600 LE graphics card, i bought it recently cuz my old one broke, i think somebody took it out and played around with it and basically damaged it but anyway i bought this new graphics card just a short while ago and it's working fine on my PC. The thing is sometimes when i play games there's a glitch, it's not the games problem because this problem happened to most of the games that i played and it didn't happen be4 on my previous graphics card so the glitch is not produced from the games. The glitch is produced from the graphics card, i can't exactly describe wat the glitch is but when i play the games and when the "GLITCH" happens, u can easily see that some parts of the objects are gone, e.g. there was this time when i was playing Need For Speed Underground and some parts of the car are gone, like a hole or something in it and basically u don't see the whole object or background, also sometimes there's this line that shouldn't be in the background or in the game, like u can see lines everywhere and it's just messed up basically, the colours are the same but just parts of the objects are missing and the whole background is screwed up.

I have a Medion MD-1567 Pentium 4 that has SIS on board graphics. I put in a Nvidia AGP graphics card (GeForce 3 older gen) with a DVI connected widescreen Hanns-G monitor that is made for 1440x900 resolution. All works OK but I get a crazy flashing screen when I right click on any movie file that is set to view as a thumbnail, when the windows screen appears during start up, when windows desktop first comes up during start up, and also when I bring up the Nvidia control panel or display settings. This isn't the end of the world but I'd like to eliminate if possible. Does anyone think it might be related to drivers loaded for the Sis onboard graphics? I noticed there are Sis651 drivers loaded on the add and remove screen but I'm concerned they might also run the AGP port that the Nvidia driver is plugged into or perhaps control more than just on board graphics. If anyone thinks I could safely remove, please let me know. Also, any other ideas would be appreciated. I've gone as far as reloading windows cleanly, trying other Nvidia drivers but it hasn't eliminated my jumping screen.

I have recently been having problems with my computer. For example, when I view pictures with some black in them, in the black part of the area there are lots of red dots , but only in the black parts. I think its not just Black but any dark colours. I also get some different coloured dots on some websites that I visit (Eg. Ebay, This site)
I also get EXTREMELY annoying colour clashes when I play San Andreas, and the same red dots all over the roads and characters in the game. It was never like this before. The colour clash is alot like the one in Vice City, but this one doesnt seem to have a patch to it. Im not sure whether I need to update the drivers again but as far as i know they are up to date (from Nvidia.com) My graphics card is NviDia Geforce 5200

The screenshot gives an idea of what the problem is like on this site as I see it now.


Please help me!

Hi,I have y700 15ISK 80NW laptop which has Nvidia 960m and Intel HD graphics 530. My problem is I cannot run some games such as Fifa 16 Rocket League.  I get errors. I guess it is happening because my laptop is trying to run games with Intel graphics card. Sometimes restarting laptop or disabling and enabling nvidia card from device manager can solve the problem. But after some hours or the next day I am having the same issue again. I tried -Installing latest drivers from Lenovo's website.-Installing latest drivers from Nvidia's and Intel's websites.-Re-installed games and formatted/clean installed windows 10. Nothing has worked.   When I first bought this laptop Windows 10 home was installed then I clean installed original Windows 10 Enterprise. Can this cause problem? Do I need to try installing Win10 home? One last thing, I wonder am I the only one having issues with graphics card on this laptop?  

A:Y700 NVIDIA GRAPHICS CARD PROBLEM

That should not make a difference which build you use as its not a server version. However, being clean install you will have to be certain you have installed all the manatory driver and software Lenovo requires for it to run and manage the power properly. The Optimus Nvidia driver package would have a control center which is aware of games and turns it on automatically. If not then you manually configure it for specific applications. EG. You can have it run on the 960 with Chrome for example if you specify that.There are thread about controlling this if you search and maybe on Nvidia's website. Otherwise you may have to contact Lenovo Tech support for help if its new and in warranty. Controlling and changing the BIOS is a no no and you are asking for trouble.

I am having some extreme difficulty with the Nvidia 740m graphics card in my Toshiba satellite laptop i purchased around a year ago. I have attached some images showing the Nvidia control panel preview window which shows the problems with said GPU. Upon loading any application with the Nvidia graphics card as the preferred processor flickering squares visible in the attached images form in the window, this goes on for multiple seconds before the whole screen flickers and my Laptop either freezer or blue-screens. this results in my having to manually reboot it as if i leave it the laptop gets very hot.
To my knowledge this all started to occur when i updated to window 8.1 however this may only be coincidence. I have have updated drivers, uninstalled and deleted all Nvidia programs and data from my computer in an attempt to fix this problem. Nothing has worked so far.

Hello…
This is my first time on the forum, thanks in advance for your help.
I have a GeForce 8800 GTS graphics card in a machine that I built and I can’t get the graphic card to work properly. I’ve installed and enabled the drivers – when I reboot the machine, I get the Windows 7 startup screen and then it goes blank. I reboot in Safe Mode – disable drivers – reboot, and it works fine with the integrated onboard drivers. My 6yr old HP monitor is connected to the graphics card using a DVI to VGA adapter (would this cause a problem? I was told no). The motherboard doesn’t have a dedicated video output, so the video I’m getting from integrated drivers is passing through this card. Everything in the machine is working fine except for this problem. I’m not a gamer, but I would eventually like to do video work on this machine and would like to get this card to work properly. In a couple of weeks I will have the opportunity to put this card in another machine but until then is there anything I can do to diagnose the problem?

"Integrated drivers" - I suppose that you mean the generic Windows VGA drivers.

Has your hardware ever worked in Windows 7?

Windows 7 is pretty good at including drivers, but it may not include drivers for your nVidia nForce 570 SLI chipset. (I had that with my nVidia/AMD laptop.)

They're available at www.nvidia.com. Make sure that you get the correct bit depth (32 bit, from what you've posted), and the AMD version (not Intel).

Hi, I play CS:GO on the computer pretty often and the computer I use wouldn't necessarily be called a reliable or good computer for that matter. But Recently ( yesterday ) I was playing and then randomly my computer started having screen tears and then it eventually blue screened. I let it do it's thing, but during the reboot, the resolution had been changed ( black bars on top/bottom and both sides ) and there were a bunch of random zig zag lines on the screen. My normal resolution is 1920x1080 and now since the crash yesterday I can't change it any higher than 1280x1024. I've tried updating my drivers and nothing has changed it. A friend told me to try and open Nvidia Control Panel and it says something along the lines of "Nvidia display settings are not available - There is no display currently connected to an Nvidia GPU". I have no idea what that means as I am by no means a computer wiz.

Hi, Welcome to Seven forums.

Get DriverSweeper first and the latest available drivers for the GPU. Uninstall the drivers and run the sweeper. This will remove the left overs of the old drivers. After this, install the latest drivers for the GPU now. It will be like fresh install of the drivers.

Hi,

I successfully installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit by choosing custom install on my Sony Vaio VGN-NR21S. I didnt delete my Windows Vista Home Edition 32-bit recovery partition.

I am having difficulty in updating the graphics card which is a Nvidia Geforce 8400M GT. I downloaded a desktop 8400 driver from Nvidia site(UK) for me.

I then used the mobility modder tool for Nvidia and it modified the inf file. I then ran the Setup.exe from the Nvidia directory.

The problem is that i keep getting a message saying "The System has not been modified" after running the setup.exe

I then tried the notebook 8400M GT driver from Nvidia site(even though its not supported by Sony) That didnt work.

So i then tried using the Mobility modder on the notebook 8400M driver but the same problem occurs.

I am not confident in modifying the inf file outlined in the following:

LinkNVIDIA Driver - Convert from Desktop to Mobile (Laptop):

Here are my hardware ID's:

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0426&SUBSYS_902D104D&REV_A1

if possible could somebody create me an inf file please?

I had to do something like that with my Compaq notebook (8200M graphics). Since doing that, I was able to get drivers from Windows Update or use the generic nVidia mobile drivers. I can't tell you whether it was necessary, but it may have helped.

A:Windows 7/ nvidia graphics card

Also i Found this solution from Larry D. Lawerence but the problem is that windows have a preconfigure driver for my nvidia 9800gtx graphics card so everytime i uninstall the drive/restart my pc it automatically installs the driver
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'
For example:
nvcplui.exe becomes nvcplui_old.exe
nvd3dumx.dll becomes nvd3dumx_old.exe
etc..etc..etc..Repeat for all files with the same date as the file you found in step 5, they begin with the letters 'nv'
If it is too tedious to rename all the files, you can simply move them to a different folder.

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.

Hello, I recently performed a clean install of Windows 7 x64 Ultimate onto my computer. While doing so, I had to unplug my graphics card and use the onboard video, otherwise I'd get an error about unexpected restarts.

After installing, Windows 7 doesn't detect the graphics card (the card works, but it doesn't show up under the device manager and I can't install nVidia drivers). If I use the BIOS to switch to onboard video, then that shows up on the device manager and works fine, but I use this PC for gaming so I'd prefer to use the video card.

Here's the deal,
I purchased a HP Pavilion dv9540us Entertainment Notebook PC and upgraded to Windows 7, after I got a virus and let Microsoft Techs into my laptop remotely in an effort to remove the worm and they deleted some key OS Files. So, they were kind enough to give me Windows 7 Professional & install Office 2010, but failed to inform me that upgrading from Vista to Windows 7 would render my Nvidia graphics card useless. So, here I am trying to figure out what to do and where to get the correct Drivers to get my HDMI & Other ports working again. I tried talking to HP, but to them it's a matter of national security & if your not willing to "Grea$e the wheels" they're not willing to give up the "seceret." Although, They did tell me that I will need to download a chipset driver to my HP Pavilion dv9540us that is compatible with Windows 7 and then my Nvidia graphics card will be detectible by my Device manager. Then I would need to update my Nvidia Drivers, Reboot, and I should be up and running. Sounds good, but what is the HP Driver I need? Does anyone have a link or any better input?
Because, I am about ready to Smash this thing or hunt down some HP Support guy.

about 4 months ago I did a major pc upgrade where i replaced my motherboard, processor, ram, heat sink, power supply and case, the only things I used from the original computer where 2 HDD's, 1 SDD and my AMD radeon HD 6950 2gb.

Now ive have the most strange issue where i can be watching a video off the HDD or surfing the web on youtube etc and not long after I start the activity my computer will turn off like if I had flicked the switch on the back of the power supply and then it boots back up again and will run fine until i start up an activity again and then it does exactly the same thing and reboots, there is no BSOD shown nor Dumps Created.

Ive tried many things to sort this out and have RMA'ed the power supply and the motherboard (the motherboard wasn't a direct replacement as they didn't sell my original board anymore which was a gigabyte ga-x79-ud5, now i have an asus p9x79 deluxe). I have tried only plugging in one HDD/SSD and then tried a spare HDD when that failed, i have tried one ram stick at a time and still nothing.

now heres where it gets strange whilst trying to rule out differnt hardware i switched my AMD card out for a very old 512mb, pcie 1.0 x16 nvidia graphics and since then my computer has been running marvelously i can have it playing videos for hours, days even(although i havent properly tested for days) and not a single problem at all.

P.S. sorry about any spelling or punctuation mistakes made but Im very tired at the time of writing this and will be going to bed


The comparison you are making between GPU brands is pointless as a diagnostic. The MAIN difference I can see is that one card requires external power, and the other one does not. A proper diagnostic would be to test another GPU that requires external power.

I've heard that the specific PSU you bought will sometimes not power all the hardware it is supposed so.
People saying it could barely power a SSD, or even an extra fan.

My thoughts. Try using another PSU, try using a similar GPU. Use your old PSU and see if it still happens for starters.

Hello, and thank you for checking out my post.  My apologies for writing a book, but I'm hoping to give as much detail as needed the first go round. I just received my custom-built T420s (4170-CTO) and have a couple technical questions/concerns about it.  The details of my configuration are located at the bottom of this post. First off, one of the deciding factors of my purchase was the discrete graphics card.  On the T420s I chose NVIDIA NVS 4200M Optimus Graphics 1GB, Intel Core i7-2620M Processor?.  I was thrilled to have more than 256 MB of dedicated graphics memory for my games.  Upon receiving my laptop, though, I ran the Windows Experience Index and saw that the lowest score was the graphics card, which is identified as Intel HD Graphics Family and has 64 MB of dedicated graphics memory.  After my heart started beating again I checked Device Manager and found under Display both Intel HD Graphics Family and NVIDIA NVS 4200M listed as working with up-to-date drivers.  When I configured the laptop online there was no mention of hybrid graphics, so I'm not sure why I have an Intel Graphics card on the machine.  My current laptop that I was looking to replace is a T61p with a NVIDIA Quadro FX 570M graphics card, and only that NVIDIA card is shown under Device Manager and in the Windows Experience / Performance Information.  Thinking that perhaps disabling the Intel card would cause the NVIDIA card to take over, I disa...

A:T420s Nvidia Graphics Card & Express Card Question...

The T420s with Nvidia GPU has two graphics card that can switch on the fly, if you only want the discrete gpu, just go into your bios menu under graphics there is an option to select discrete.With the Nvidia Optimus (which is what you have), it can switch between Nvidia and Intel GPU depending on your application needs. This will allow you to conserve battery or power. Expresscard slot 34 mm slot is occupied by the card reader that you ordered. What you are talking about within the ram slot cover, is the mPCIe slot, which can be occupied by a mSATA drive. http://forum.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/T420s-T400s-T410s-removal-of-4-in-1-SD-card-...

I am planning to get a new graphics card for new games such as Doom 3 and Halflife 2.

I have always had nvidia cards, but I hear that the new ati cards are also great.

Can anyone tell me which card is better and why?

What features does one have that the other doesn't?

I was thinking of either a Radeon 9800 Pro 128Mb, or a GeForceFX 5900TD 128Mb.

So as you will see i think my GPU is fairly old but i would like to know if there was anyway to boost Perfomance

Here is the DxDiag Results

Also Would It be posssible to increase the dedictated Video Memory(i have checked the bios it is not there so dont tell me to check)
I would also like to know if you think this graphics card HERE is a good one for my PC Or This one im on a budget of about $80 to $90

A:Nvidia Graphics Card Help

You can not increase dedicated video memory, it is what it is. 512 MB

The system (motherboard) can share memory with the video card, my MSI shares 2 GB giving me a total of 4 GB of graphics memory.

Maybe save a little more money before you make a choice.

Is there anything that I need to do in order to make the switch easy do I have to uninstall drivers before I install the new card or what?

A:Going from ATI to Nvidia graphics card

Yes, I would suggest that you uninstall ATI drivers & Catalyst Control Center(and anything to do with ATI) prior to installing the new card. After that it's an easy switch, install the graphics card, the latest Nvidia drivers, sofware & utilities, and you're good to go.

Sounds more like a driver issue. Have you uninstalled and installed the latest video driers for the card?

Latest driver can be found here: http://www.nvidia.com/page/drivers.html
Which appears to be done at this very moment.

You can try this site for the drivers: http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=1715

Make sure you use Add or Remove Programs to uninstall the current video drivers.

Hello,

I'm going to keep this question pretty general (non-spec-oriented) and see if it works, forgive me if I don't provide enough information.

I'm planning to purchase a new laptop and have a choice between a laptop that includes an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 card and one that does not include a graphics card. I don't know how to make this decision because I'm clueless about what graphics cards do.

Here is what I will use the laptop for: The most CPU intensive stuff will be Pro Tools 11 and other audio sequencing stuff, Photoshop and Illustrator and other graphics programs, and Camtasia. I have Premier Pro and AfterEffects video processing applications but I don't use them and I think the likelihood that I will become a power user is very low.

I am not a gamer at all.

Based on that, do I need the NVIDIA graphics card?

Again, my apologies if I'm not providing enough background to enable an accurate answer. I'm happy to follow up with more.

Thank you,
Tim

Hi, I just bought a new nvidia graphics card. it was a 9400 GT.. geforce.. I wanted to install it but I had a few problems..

1. it needed an extra power source comming from the power box to power the card..
2. computer startup (not windows but right when I press the power button)
3. un reconization...

details:

1. The graphics card that I bought came with a supplemental power cord that I had to connect to the computer the cord has to directly connect to the power box... I can't connect directly to the powerbox.. I found 2 female connectors from the power box they are all 4 whole large connectors and the one from my graphics card is only 2 hole small FEMALE connection (if you haven't caught on, female and female connectors don't connect....)so is there anyway of connecting the powerbox to the graphics card because I'm guessing it should be that missing connection that causes stress on the mother board which = slow boot (the computer powers on when I press the on button but makes that sound (like it's going up and down on a rollercoaster if you don't get what I mean then it's like ........vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv(oh loses power again)....vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv( again?)

Well I seem to be only able to use the NT drivers I got with my card unfortunitly when I try and use the XP drivers when I bootup the PC and login to XP it hangs I have to restart and it still hangs which means probably im using the wrong drivers. So what im pritty much saying here is only the NT drivers work. But I dont get any options or nothing in the display properties it just lists the card memory used etc. So okay i can play Medal Of Honor / Return to castle Wolfestein etc probably half life any game that does not detect the card like the new ones like Grand Theft Auto 3 etc. Im annoyed at this i was looking forward to playing Battelfield 1942. Looks like im stuck with what games i got. But why cant it play MOD3 etc which requires a 16mb card and GTA3 dont ? Because it's not proparly installed ? And why does the card hang using the XP drivers or Win2k drivers. its a 64mb Geforce 4 ? And why dont Nvidia offer support ? None at all ...
 

A:Nvidia Graphics card

Nvidia only supplies chipsets. Since they don't build the graphics cards, they don't support them.

I would check with the manufacturer of your video card and try the drivers from them. Usually the manufacturers tweak the drivers a little specifically for their cards.

Hi,

I read on another forum site that a Nvidia Geforce GT630 with 1GB dedicated memory is better than a Nvidia Geforce GT620 with 2GB dedicated memory. Is this true, surely more memory would be a bigger advantage than the slight speed difference between models?

Thanks,
Tom

A:Better Nvidia Graphics card

Usually higher models would perform better than their predecessors but there can be positives and negatives with both.

For example:
ZOTAC GeForce GT 620 2GB DDR3
Clock rate - 700 MHz
Shader Clock - 1400 MHz
Memory Clock - 1066 MHz
Memory Size - 2GB
Memory Interface - 64-bit
Memory Type - DDR3

ZOTAC GeForce GT 630 1GB DDR3
Core clock - 810 MHz
Shader Clock - 1620 MHz
Memory Clock - 1333 MHz
Memory Size - 1GB
Memory Interface - 128-bit
Memory Type - DDR3

1. 630 has higher Clock speeds
2. 630 has bigger Memory Interface
3. Size of memory won't have much impact unless you're using a high resolution or multiple monitors

Hey,

I think my newly bought NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS graphics card is faulty. Is there any signs or ways to test whether it is or not.

The reason I think it's faulty is because I had a pretty messed up PC about two weeks after installing it. I eventually had to reinstall the old card (NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200) and do a full system recovery (reverting back to the factory setup). Without the 7600 everything seems to be working as it should.

Any ideas?

My pc is running windows 7 - 64 bit ultimate. I upgraded the motherboard of my PC in 2010 with second generation i3 processor and 4GB RAM. It has integrated intel graphics already.
Today I installed new Kingston DDR3 – 4GB RAM. My pc has detected it and running fine.

I also installed ZOTAC NVIDIA GT 730 (2GB) DDR5 Graphics Card in its PCI slot.

https://www.amazon.in/dp/B00L61VGPU/..._u8tCxbWD7CB55

Unfortunately, when I turn my PC on, the monitor goes in power save mode. The graphic card fan runs smoothly.

I tried the following methods with the graphic card still properly attached within my mother board
1. My monitor connected to the graphic card via VGA cable. Nothing happened
2. My monitor connected to the graphic card via HDMI cable. Nothing happened.
3. My monitor connected to the original old slot (it works fine) through VGA cable. Nothing happened.

However, if I remove my graphic card, my PC runs fine. What should I do? I am running SMPS of 450 W. Upon confirming with my friend, he said that I should use 800-900W to run my graphics card. To my surprise on their official website, Geforce has listed minimum power requirements for my graphic card as 300W.

I don’t think that my graphics card is damaged as I bought it from Amazon. I have bought lots of electronics and delicate items from that site and have never received damaged product.

Hi,
Was it sold and shipped by Amazon or from another vender ?

Every time you switch ports you have to change the monitor settings to that port

I don't believe I've ever seen a 8-900w psu before
Most were 750-850-1000w
But yea over kill for that card.
Does it need or have a pull for additional power to connect to it on the top rear ?
I doubt it would.

It only runs on the intel 3000 graphics. In the benchmark mode on the first two tests i get avg frame rate 28.8 and 44.4 fps.

When i start the game with my gt 540m : the game starts just as the screen comes(first screen of the game) where all the logos come n all that stuff the game gets minimized automatically and then comes up again , this keeps happining and it gets a bit of a trouble to even end it from the task manager.

The Nvidia install may uninstall the prior driver during the process and then reboot and complete the install.  If you have no Nvidia driver the device will operate with the Basic Widows video driver and you can update the Video Adapter in Device Manager.
