Solved: Nvidia video drivers 191.07

Q: Solved: Nvidia video drivers 191.07

Hello everyone. I updated my drivers with 191.07. All went well and integrated perfectly except for one anomoly :- I like fairly big icons and text, and I always use a res. of 960 x 600 which is perfect for me. After installing these new drivers, I can't get 960 x 600 any longer. I can get down to 1024 x 768 which (for me) is too small. Below that is 800 x 600 which is a wee bit too large.

Does anyone know why I can't get 960? I've been all over Nvidia's website, but they craftily don't give "conact us" details. I wiped it out and did it again but the result was the same. I have a Forsa (Nvidia) GeForce 6600 card which has 256 megs of RAM. I have 1 GB of RAM and a P4 2.4 GHz CPU.

Many thanks

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.)

A: Solved: Nvidia video drivers 191.07

In the nVidia Control Panel, navigate to the Change Resolution tab under the Display Section. Here, click on the Add Resolutions button and, on the page that pops up, click Create Custom Resolution.

Set your required resolution, scan rate and color depth.

The little arrow at the bottom left will allow you to set scan timings if you require custom settings for those too. Just leave it on auto and click the Test button to test your custom resolution. If you are happy with it, you can save it as a regular resolution selection.

Try it and see if that helps.

Let us know.

Hello, I hope someone can help us.

We recently upgraded to windows 7 and we're trying to download and install the newest drivers for the EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 video card we have installed. However, updating through Windows doesn't work and despite taking, from what I've read everywhere, the proper steps to uninstall the old drivers the right way, as soon as windows loads after the restart it automatically installs a set of
old drivers ( without letting me choose which drivers I'd like to install (the latest ones seem to be 257.21). Is there anyway someone can PLEASE list the exact steps ,in order,
the procedure for properly updating NVIDIA Video drivers in Windows7. And yes... I've been searching on this site for hours & have not been able to find an answer to my problem. I've done everthing I've found that's been suggested, i.e. Disconnecting from the internet, turning off virus scans, restarting in Safe Mode...nothing works. My wife says this is a great place to find answers and we would appreciate any help

A:Solved: Updating NVIDIA Video Drivers in Windows7 is impossible

You need to uninstall the drivers using Programs & Features, but on reboot Windows will install drivers for it from Windows Update if the computer is connected to the internet or it will install older drivers that are included with Windows.

In almost all cases you can simply install the new drivers over top of the old drivers without any issues. Run the new NVidia installer and it will install the drivers. 99% of people do not uninstall the older drivers prior to installing the new drivers.

Hi, I like to believe I'm kinda tech savvy. I'll start by saying that my old 19" monitor went out and now I have a 32" dell monitor I'm using. Every time I update my video drivers to most current and then restart comp for them to take full effect, it will go through the green microsoft loading bar and then screen goes to self test, Yet there is still a windows sound and I can even log in, but no video for these parts. I can go into safe mode perfectly fine. I can even uninstall my video drivers and I'm capable of starting normal mode fine. Only when I update drivers do I have this problem. I have done alot of troubleshooting to try to get this monitor to work with my computer, searched on several different search engines for a solution to this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm seeing several error messages in the event log and I'm unsure which one is the actual crashing of the comp, so I'll be back to post that info. Thanks for your time and help!

I'm still learning.....

When I log on computer, screen shows "The ATI control panel
failed to initialize because no ATI driver is installed, or ATI driver is not working properly. The ATI control panel will now exit".

I know that has been discussed here, but this is my question: Isn't ATI a video card? I have Nvidea GeForce FX5500 in my system (XP, 1 G Ram)) yet this error message always appears. When I pull up display adaptors in device mgr, my Nvidea shows, nothing for ATI does.

So, do I need both? I just updated drivers on my video card and direct x due to a game freezing. That didn't help. Then I remembered this error message and wondered if it had something to do with it.

Thanks alot for any help.

A:Do I need Ati drivers if I have Nvidia video card?

You don't need ATI drivers-they are for AMD/ATI graphics cards- uninstall them.
Use Driver Sweeper here:
in preference to "Add and Remove Programs" in the control panel. I would uninstall both the ATI and nVidia drivers and re-install the applicable nVidia driver to ensure you get an uncorrupted install.
The DirectX update should be fine.

You should only have the graphics driver from your graphics card vendor ( the manufacturer) i.e. Gigabyte, MSI, XFX, EVGA etc. If the card is an OEM product then download from here http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

FX5xxx branded cards (not OEM) may not run with the nVidia Forceware drivers so make sure you use the manufacturers recommended download if available.

Using the MSI updater it says "current driver: not installed" it also says that the latest driver available is

I currently have installed Nvidia driver 285.79.

I just don't know why there are two drivers...

im usually used to these sort of things like second nature, but i have NO CLUE at all in the world of graphics/video cards chips or whatever. ive spent the last 3 hours doing nothing at all trying to understand this...

My computer has an NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 model64 pro video board. i have no clue at all what this is, but i know its what i have. The problem is that i want to play the Sims 2 (and other games later on), but the graphics are all slow and choppy. going through troubleshooting, it says i need a new 'driver', or, the latest driver provided by the video card chipset.

i have no idea what to get, how to get them, in what order and would really like it if someone could tell me what i should do (in simple terms), or just explain it all to me.

thanks to anyone who helps.

Hey all, so I just tweaked my 7600GS as I was having problems while gaming. And ever since then whenever I open a video file (mpg, avi, wmv, divx) it plays with very dark video. Almost like looking at an LCD monitor from almost directly above. I can tweak the brightness of Divx files to play brighter but all other movie files remain the same. I've tried all the best players (vlc, mplayclassic, wmc) with the same effect.

This morning when I turned on my laptop I got a blue screen with the following statement:

I would suggest you run DriverCleaner Pro ( http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=745 ) and remove all traces of the bad NVidia installs and then defragment and then reboot and then run sfc /scannow.

After that, you can try a fresh NVidia install.

Ok, so recently I have been having a serious problem with my video card and/or the drivers. It seems to happen most when flash is being used in a web page.

I've re-installed both flash and chrome (my browser of choice) and rolled back/re-installed my video drivers.

When it freezes, the whole screen stops, the sound gets drawn out, does that for about 20-50 seconds, then goes back to normal, although sometimes the video (eg a movie) has to be restarted.

I am really tired of this happening, because since most web-ads use flash, a crash can happen anytime.

Thanks in advance!

I have been working on a Dell Inspiron 531S and am unable to get the video, and now audio, drivers loaded and working correctly. Here?s the deal:

According to the Dell tag# info online, this cpu uses either the onboard Nvidia nforce 6150SE n430 video card or an ATI 1300 Pro. There is no external video card so the Nvidia should be right. This is confirmed by programs like HWinfo32. However, someone did install ATI catalyst software at some earlier point.

At first, only the video card driver was not loaded properly and so Vista (Home Premium 32-bit) was in VGA-compatible mode. I tried to load NVIDIA Nforce 258.96 WHQL drivers for Vista 32-bit, which completed without errors. Upon rebooting, though, I could see in Device Manager that the drivers didn?t take. I have also tried Dell?s recommended R166208 (an executable that loads Nvidia?s MCP61 ver.A01 drivers) and no matter what I do, Device Manager says I now have an ?unknown device? or a VGA-compatible display adapter. Unloading and reinstalling did not help. I noticed SP2 was not loaded so tried installing it to see if that would help. It loaded no problem, but then I saw (as another update) a Realtek audio driver update. I let it load and now have no audio.

I have tried both Dell?s recommended Realtek driver (R180772, which is for the ALC888 HD audio device and loads Realtek?s R1.85 audio drivers) and a newer R2.51 version for Vista that I got from Realtek?s site. Both install ... Read more

So this problem is something that I've had for some time but I generally avoided it. After a while, I just decided to get it done with. I have a rather old computer, made by emachines and it uses an nVIDIA GeForce4 MX Integrated GPU. It has been a hassle trying to update the drivers for it however. Whenever I download and install the updates, everything seems to run smoothly. However, when I run some kind of program after the reboot and all, the graphics appear pixelated and such. When running the desktop (as I am now), everything appears fine. However when I were to say turn on a game or something along those lines, then everything goes wrong. Help?

I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium with an AMD Athlon 64 x2 dual core processor. GeForce6100SM-M with the NVIDIA MCP61S. Since February, when Microsoft pushed out the new "optional" drivers for NVIDIA Graphics, my computer has been blue screening frequently.

Up to this weekend past, it has been about 10-15 times a day. However, as of Thursday or Friday past, I cannot get the computer to stay in Windows for any more than 5 minutes at a time without blue screening.

There have been multiple errors with the blue screens, and a different .dll file each time. I have uninstalled the NVIDIA drivers from the control panel, but the PC continues to blue screen. As you can imagine, I'm getting pretty frustrated.

I have tried to update with new drivers from NVIDIA, but get a message stating the driver package is corrupt before the install gets going.

I have the following situation:

(Windows XP Home SP3)

3rd party Driver scans show that the following drivers are needed to be updated:

Nvidia nforce Networking Controller from Ver -> 67.8.9
Nvidia nforce PCI System Management from -> 4.6.9

If I pay, I can click the icon to have these automatically downloaded for me but I resent paying for anything that should be free.

Drivers are available on the Nvidia site but I just need some guidance to ensure I am going about this the right way:

First, in Device Manager the PCI SM driver shows that it is not required or not loaded. Does this mean that the driver is on the system (and hence may show up in a driver update scan) - but the corresponding device is not in use and therefore the driver and ergo the update are not required?

Second, in Device Manager I notice that there are the following 2 entries:

Nvidia network adapter (version and Nvidia network bus enumerator (
I'm guessing that both these entries are part of the "Network controller" found in the driver scan...

Third, my motherboard is not an "nvidia" motherboard. It is a gigabyte board, with some Nvidia devices on it. When I go to the nvidia site, it lists driver updates for:

I have managed to alter *.inf for the latest V 306.97 nvidia graphivs drivers..which you can get here.86x and 64x..

if you have windows defalut drivers installed and not working as it should..and if device manager does not recognise graphics card model..then
1.install vista drvers you have already.install nvidia n force drivers if required.
why--it will detect the card as nvidia..simple.

1) Download extract the drivers to C:\nvidia
2) Find and replace the disp.inf file the display drivers folder
3) Go to device manager and update the driver using "have disk method"
4) It may show warning that it not digitally signed,ignor and move.

They don't.

Read other 2 answers

Ok, I am having a terrible time with the video card I just bought today. It is the nVidia GeForce FX 5500, and the drivers won't install! After inserting the disk (the card isn't even in the pc yet, I tried before installing the software and the monitor just stayed black, so the old card is still in), the screen comes up to install. I select the windows xp/2000 selection, and then a screen comes up saying, "The nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware, setup will now exit". I lookedup about something with improper INF files, and honestly.. I don't understand it. What do I do to get this to work?

Thank you so much,

Bought The Sims 2 a few days ago, and during the game it restarts my computer... searching around I figured it must be due to outdated drivers for my nVidia GeForce4 MX 420. So I naturally went to nvidia.com, and tried to download the newest drivers for Windows XP and the GeForce series and can get to the download pop-up window (the first one with the agreement thing) and then once accepted, it shows me the advertisments But after about 30 seconds of waiting, the page gives me a 'Page cannot be displayed' error.

I have tried every mirror they list, tried all the ones for the international version, tried everything for all the older drivers they had (all giving me the Page cannot be displayed thing ), and even tried the 'Omega Drivers' made for nVidia... The game still resets and I cannot find the new drivers ANYWHERE else.

Disabled my firewall, set my IE browser security to the lowest, even tried a different browser, all of which didn't work
Anyone who could give me any advice on what to do now, I'm willing to do almost anything right now

So I haven't updated my drivers in over 4 months, and my wife is pretty good with computers. I told her I need to update my drivers for the vid card.

She goes in and deletes the old drivers out and installs the new one from nvidia's website.

Now when I get in World of Warcraft, I have these huge white lines around the screen of lossed pixels. It is very random where they occur.

So I go out and check in Control Panel > Add Remove Programs. I now see I only have Nvidia Display. I know for a fact that I had Ethernet and Audio, and I have redownloaded them. But I'm 99% sure there were 2 more that I can't remember.

After talking to her, she said she was on Hard[OP] and saw there were new drivers that was suppose to be improvements for the gforce series. After downloading it and trying it, it wouldn't work. So she went back to just installing the ones on the website. But she DID "delete all" the drivers in the Nvidia in Add Remove Programs.

I tried to find my original Nvidia CD, but I can't. Am I screwed to these lossy pixels now? Because I have no idea where to go from here. I also noticed that I have went from a 40 FPS in WoW.... down to a 20 FPS average now.

No clue what I am missing.

I saw a thread that is now expired on this one issue that I am all of a sudden having with my nVidia Control Panel; however it just ended and never gave a definitive answer. I am getting the error that the NVIDIA Display Panel Extension cannot be created. I have uninstalled and reinstalled still have a problem (dated 7/14/09). I had originally started by upgrading the RAM in this desktop because my laptop is just too small for my aging eyes, lol. I had also bought a new Samsung Monitor. So as if I didn't know any better, I upgraded the RAM AND hooked up the new monitor to the system at the same time and the darn monitor would only show the Dell screen and the loading windows screen then blank. Well I hooked it back up to the TV I had it hooked to prior AND removed the RAM and now I see this error message, which I am assuming is probably the whole issue although why does it work on this APEX TV as opposed to my Samsung Monitor?!?!?! ...

You shouldn't need to install anything to hook up additional displays.

But you can go to Nvidia's website and download their latest driver, since its complaining about a Nvidia driver file.

Here's the latest driver: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_81.85.html

Alright, here's the deal.
? Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit, with SP2 RC.
? nVidia Gforce 9600 GT

Never had problems updating the drivers to their latest versions (downloaded from nvidia.com) until I de-installed Spybot (that crappy anti-spyware thing).

After that, everytime I try to install (after a deinstallation) or update the current drivers nothing happens. Install runs fine, copies files, reboots and voila... same drivers as before.

The only drivers that actually I was able to install were the 178.13 via the internal Windows Update. That's it. If I don't install them, the VGA card is shown as "vgasave" in the Device Manager.

I'm quite fed up with this and planning to reinstall Vista, but backuping everything up is going to be a real hassle, that's why I'm trying to find out a possible solution to this beforehand.

Any suggestions?.
Thanks in advance!

Hi so my old GT240 card died on me so I bought a new Sapphire HD5770 1GB Vapor-X card. It arrived this morning, I uninstalled the old Nvidia Drivers, put the card in the PCI-E Slot, booted the computer, put the driver CD in, ran the installer and I got a message at the end of the install saying there were problems, I opened up the log file and nothing seemed to be wrong. But the drivers or the Catalyst Control Panel didn't even install! Im stuck on this really rubbish resolution and can't play games. I've tried driver sweeper to get rid of nvidia drivers and then tried reinstalling and that didn't work.

Hardware i'm using:

OS: Vista 32Bit
Motherboard: Asus P5KC
Processor: Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
Memory: 4x 1GB RAM
Sapphire HD5770 1GB Vapor-X GPU

Hope you guys can help

I'm not sure if this exact question has been posted, and i'm sorry if it has, but I am planning on buying a new desktop with 3gb memory. I'm not sure yet what kind of video card I want, but my choices are the nvidia geforce 6150, nvidia geforce 7100, 128MB NVIDIA GeForce 8400, DVI-I, VGA adapter, and 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8500GT DVI-I, HDMI. I really want one that will allow for Sims 2 to run pretty smoothly , but also for one that will run my photoshop cs3. I have the nvidia geforce 6150 on my laptop with 2gb of memory and it runs ok...but it's a little slow. Which of the top options is the best? Is the 8400 a good card? I would rather get the 8400 because it's a better value, and I am assuming that the higher the number the better the card? is that true for nvidia video cards? Will having at least 3gb of memory on the desktop help for the video card to run better?

thanks!!Click to expand...

I'm not sure about nvidia cards, but higher numbers USSUALLY mean better card. The exception is probably with the radeon x series cards. The numbers are only between 1k and 2k but they are better than the regular 9k series ATIs from what I understand. As for the memory count. More is always better.

I have an nVidia 6600 video card.
But my system won't play video files, whether it is mpeg, wmv, avi or real video... It plays them for a minute or two then the whole system just shuts down. I have already installed WinDVD, DiVx, real etc.

It plays audio files just fine. Playing games also dont give me any problems, Doom 3, Far Cry work beautifully at pretty high resolutions!

Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

My system config is:

AMD Athlon 64 3000+
ASUS A8-NE PCI-e mobo
1 GB DDR 400 RAM
200 GB SATA HDD Seagate
256 MB PCI-e nVidia 6600 Graphics Card
16 x DVD Writer Samsung
400 W power supply (SMPS)

I'd be most gratefull if I anybody could show how I could solve this problem.
Or even if somebody could just point me in the right place to look at.

I have a Geforce 8200 installed in my computer but everytime i try to update my drivers to the newest 8200 drivers. it installed Geforce 9200 drivers...
i call nvidia and they said that 9200 is the same as 8200 and the drivers will work flawless with my 8200...
well they are totally wrong. with the 9200 installed, my HDMI screen flickers all the time then if i had the 8200 drivers in....
but here is the catch...since i updated i can't remember that driver i had installed that worked...
whenever i got to the nvidia site to get a 8200 driver
they send me to the 9200 driver page.
just want to know where i can get reliable 8200 drivers and if anyone knows a good 8200 driver that was the best out of the batch of them
i know i have have high hopes
but got to ask somewhere.

A:Nvidia 8200 Drivers /Nvidia 9200

If you go to the File Hippo site you will find lots of past version Nvidia drivers but you might be up against it if you can't remember the driver version you want. Trial and error maybe the only way to go.
If you do decide to try different versions I'd be using driver sweeper between installing.
