Updating nVidia drivers / nVidia Geforde 9600 GT

Q: Updating nVidia drivers / nVidia Geforde 9600 GT

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!

i have been trying to update my GeForce 4 drivers from version to the latest version. im runnng winXP. they install fine but then when the computer restarts, the screen changes to very low settings, (800x600, 4bit graphics) and when i click settings on display properties i get a message "the drivers for GEforce4 were for a different operating system so winxp has reverted to VGA" and i have to restore my system to a day before to get it back to normal. but this has left all my games running very jerkey, and seems to have removed Nview from my system.

I am sure i have selected the correct operating system, graphics card ect. i know these are the correct drivers. I have even tried reinstalling windows. can anyone help me on this?

Hello everyone my question is very clear that "is it necessary to uninstall AMD/Nvidia Graphics driver before updating? or we can simply download and install and overwrite the existing drivers? i read alot of different comments and views. Some people say that they Uninstall the drivers first than restart and use softwares like Driver Sweep or Cleaner to remove any registry files and than install new Version of the driver where on the other hand some people say that now a days new drivers can be installed without removing the older one and simply upgrades to the new version.

Well i used to Uninstall the drivers before installing the new version and some years ago i used to use Driver Cleaners as well but than i felt that they are'nt compulsary to use. I wanna know what kind of problems we can face if we upgrade the drivers without removing the old one? Will there be glitches, BSOD etc? i made this thread to clearify the concept of the Upgrading and Removing Procedures for both AMD and Nvidia Graphics Drivers and people who search on google dont find much info regarding this issue

A:Is it necessary to uninstall old AMD/NVidia drivers before updating?

Hey Bilal,
You can install over the old ones and for the most part, you will be fine. But the best option is always to uninstall the old ones first, even going so far as to delete the old folders and files after the uninstall. This way it can be installed clean and in pristine shape. This may even go so far as to increase graphic card performance in some cases.

I updated my nvidia drivers the other night to v320.49 and got a blue screen whilst playing Guild Wars 2.
I then later got another blue screen that same night whilst removing some programs.
I have been doing my own search for the root of the problem and when I use the Windows 7 Memory Diagnostic Tool, it comes up with a hardware error.
I got another blue screen the next day (today) after trying to exit Guild Wars again. I will add that I rolled back my drivers beforehand which is version

I recently updated my drivers for my nvidia graphics card. After rebboting the machine i found that i could no longer see a display on my monitor.

Is there any way in which i could revert back to the old drivers without being able to see anything on the screen?

any information would be apreciated

You should be able to boot and POST atleast, is this the case? If this is the case, go into safe mode and go to device manager using the below method - once here, search for the drivers for your card and right click, properties, uninstall (or rollback, which will change them to your last most recent drivers for your card).

Start > Run > devmgmt.msc

I'm afraid I have run out of ideas trying to fix this issue. Hopefully you can help me find a solution
The problem started when I was invited to play the game Rift with friends. I installed the client, it complained about a number of things (my computer is old and not that powerful by today's standard), one of them was that my video drivers were too old. So I downloaded the latest drivers at the time (327.23, video card is GeForce 9600 GT) and installed them. When I rebooted, I got a BSOD on system startup (immediately after the Windows XP logo with the loading bar disappeared)
That was about 3 weeks ago. At the time, I solved the problem by loading in safe mode, uninstalling the driver, and reinstalling the one I had before (266.58). The system successfully loaded, I decided I could stick with the old driver, and moved on
I don't think I rebooted the system between then and today - usually I only send the computer to sleep. Today, I installed new Windows updates, and obviously it asked me to reboot after that. Once again, I got a BSOD on system startup - this time with the old version of the drivers
I went to safe mode and uninstalled the video driver again. The system loaded without them. I went to Nvidia site and used the smart search to be sure I choose the right driver. I installed the on it recommended (version 332.21) and tried to start the system. BSOD again. All attempts to make the video card work gave the same res... Read more

Problem is very complex, but i'll try to write short.
Dell Inspirion 15 7559Windows 10 64biti5Geforce 960M

Short time after buing laptop everything seemed fine, but then problem arose:
0. With default drivers (shipped with system) problem doesn't occur, but game performance is awful. Witcher 3 runs with 2-5 fps. Other more demanding games also are unplayable. It looks like laptop is not using Geforce at all.
1. Right after installing Nvidia drivers all games run smoothly, including Witcher 3, but big problem arises: heavy screen flickering (only in games). 
2. At first problem was easily avoided by moving screen (cover) a bit up or down. Now i have to almost completely close cover to stop flickering. But it's obviously unplayable and unusable. I clearly can see that game run smoothly when cover is almost closed, no fllickering at all.
3. Problem won't show up in some games that either use OpenGL or (probably) are less demanding for GPU (like Minecraft).
What have been done so far:
1. Different  Intel GPU drivers2. Different Nvidia GPU drivers3. Different updates via Dell Update4. BIOS Update5. Factory reset (with disk formatting)
It's all the same - without nvidia drivers there is no flickering, but performance is awful. After (any) Nvidia drivers - performance is perfect, but there is heavy screen flickering.

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.

Also, make sure you have the latest DirectX installed:

EDIT: Now that I've looked at your screenshot a bit closer, you have a serious problem. Your video card is showing up with 128MB of dedicated video ram. If you have a 9600 GT like it says you should have atleast 512MB of dedicated video ram. For example, I have a 9600M GT installed and my WEI looks like this:

i know it has been discussed on here already, but i am currently sitting without a operating Nvidia driver. i have tried to download the newest version of the Nvidia driver for my 9600m gt and mod it with the nvidia mod program (fail), i have tried downloading the older versions of the driver and modding them (fail). the closest to success i had was downloading the new version, mod and my mouse was glitchy and the screen went black on me so i had to boot in safe mode to uninstall.
if anyone has some insight on how to get this new driver for the 9600m or 9600 gt to work on the xps one and can help that'd be great. and yes i have read all the older threads, but they are very vague and the instructions just got me closer...

Have you tried the already modded driver from here,

Is this what you used to try and mod the latest driver,

if so not surprised that it didn't work as it hasn't been updated in over a year, and pretty sure there has been enough changes to the Nvidia drivers since then that would cause it to not work.

On most systems, inserting a real video card disables onboard video.

Upgrading [or attempting to upgrade] a big box system ie dell, hp, whatever is very often problem prone. There is more to a video upgrade than just installing the card. A big box system ships with a pw supply that is just enough to pw the system as shipped ie onboard/onchip video. You install a real video card and you have pw problems. From what I can find online, your system came with a 250W pw supply; not nearly enough for a real video card. Open the case and look at the label on the pw supply; post what it says in regard to wattage and brand name.

Hi there....

the 9600GT requires an additional 6pin connection from the PSU, according to your system specs (DX4200) you only have a 300w power supply which very likely does NOT have a dedicated 6pin for 3rd party GFX..

the 9600GT requires a minimum of 400w with 26A on the 12v rail, im guessing your PSU is not powering the card correctly...

You mean, the speed is greater while the system is booting up?

Isn't that normal? I have 9800GT, and every time I boot up the PC the fan speed is wild until I almost get to the logon screen, then the speed slows down and everything's fine. This also happens when installing a new OS. I don't think this really is a problem. I'm no expert in hardware, but from my experience, it seems that the card needs a bigger fan speed before Windows loads the graphics drivers and prepares the card for use, along with management of the fan...

History - had a 350W PS and a Radeon X1950Pro. I had multiple problems playing World of Warcraft - lockups, soft reboots, both black and blue screens, distortions. Updated drivers almost daily, adjusted fan speeds (card ran hot) - that fixed it for a while but finally the card just failed - the game would not run at all, and artifacts showed up on the desktop, so I got a new card and went ahead and upgraded PS at the same time.

Yesterday I installed the new PC P&C 610W PSU and a nVidia 9600GT, and everything was great for one day. Then this morning while playing WoW .... black screen of death. Had to manually reboot, no error message but I am suspicious that it is a video issue because before the black screen I got the big clunky "no card" desktop.

At this point I am stumped. I seriously doubt the card is simply bad and I can't help but think if I assume it is, and buy yet another one, I will still be having the same problems.

I am ruling out the power supply for obvious reasons.

All my fans are working and RivaTuner says the graphics card temp is 45C so I don't think overheating is the issue this time. Case is clean, no dust.

I hear people say that there is some problem with nVidia cards and World of Warcraft - like a software conflict of some type. People swear they have problems with WoW and no other game. I plan to test other games but can't report on that today; it could take days before I get the crash.

I have radeon 9600/9550/X1050 Series video card and am looking at system requirements for a few games. Most of these give the min/recommended specs for NVIDIA specifically a GeForce 6800 series.

Can anyone help me out with an explanation of how these two cards compare for someone who is tech illiterate? Thanks much for your help.

A:Radeon 9600 vs Nvidia

It's hard to compare - but they were similar generation cards. I'd say the 6800 is a little past the 9600 (256bit vs. 128bit), but they aren't far off of each other. I'd guess you could run the games you speak of - as long as you have enough graphics memory.

Yesterday I was casually browsing the internet when my monitor turned off. I tried a different monitor and that one wouldn't work either. It turns out that my GPUs fan stopped working. So I plugged my monitor into the on-board and put a fan facing the GPU to cool it down. And now for some reason the fan is working again, and I still have the fan facing it. But the my graphics card still won't let any monitor work. Perhaps it could've just fell out of place or something? Also the exact model is the PNY Verto GeForce 9600 GT.

A:Nvidia 9600 Gt stopped working!

If the fan on the GPU stopped working then it would have overheated and in that case the GPU could have easily fried itself; video cards run very hot if not cooled correctly.

However the fan could have stopped spinning if the card is not seated correctly in the slot or if the power connector on the back of the card, if equipped with one, came loose. Check those things. Also since you reverted to the onboard graphics you may also need to enter the BIOS setup and set the primary graphics card too the PCI-Express Slot/PEG, save and exit. You may need to turn the PC off, flip the monitor to the 9600GT then turn it back on and see if you get a display.

I know, I've asked a lot more questions than I've given answers. Maybe I'll work on that.

This time it's with a new video card. I'm attempting to upgrade to an Nvidia 9600 (GT, I think). The problem is, my computer won't let me actually use it. I have it plugged in, but I'm unable to use any video source except the built-in 6150SE.
So, it's really a question of "how do I make my computer let me use the card I want to use"; how can I disable the built-in card or otherwise make it use the new one without royally screwing up (monitor refusing to work with the computer at all, etc; yes I'm being a bit paranoid)?

I first wrote about this issue in another recent thread, when I was trying to deliver HDMI audio+video from my P70 with M3000M NVidia GPU (running Win10) to my LG OLED HDTV connected through either miniDP->HDMI or HDMI->HDMI cables, and failing to get audio. After a fair amount of research I initially came to the eventual conclusion that it was an NVidia problem, somehow related to their latest "retail" 411.95 WHQL driver I was using on my P70 (which was set in the BIOS to run with "discrete graphics").  Reverting back to successively older driver packages also available on the NVidia driver download site, I discovered that version 392.00 was their last WHQL driver package which did successfully install the NVidia HD Audio device which facilitated sending digital audio to an external HDTV via HDMI cable.
So 411.95, 411.81 and 411.63 all failed to install the NVida HD Audio device. But 392.00 (and older versions 391.89, 391.74) all DID install the NVidia HD Audio device. Hmmm.
I opened a ticket with NVidia Tech Support several days ago, and they asked me if I had tried the official Lenovo-provided NVidia Graphics Driver package and if that made nay difference, which to be honest I had not... since I don't run my P70 in Optimus (i.e. "hybrid graphics") mode but rather operate in "discrete graphics" mode and have always used the latest retail NVida drivers. So today I decided to reset my P70 back to "hybrid graphics" mode so that I could install the very... Read more

Go for the Radeon 9600. It is a newer tech than the GF4, it will also perform much better in games. It should run Morrowind excellently, 13 should run very well also...For Doom 3, expect to play at low or mid settings with a resolution of about 800x600.

Hi, I am experiencing a rather...difficult problem. I bought a new video card to replace my old Nvidia GeForce 6150 that came with my Desktop. The replacement? A PNY Nvidia 9600GT. Now, I expected to get my constant 60 fps throughout the game. But, as disappointing as it is, I am getting 55 in open zones and about 10-20 in cities. Which, is definitely not too good.
I've seen mixed reactions from people running this card on WoW. Some are getting 100 fps. Others getting my same problem, some worse. I have checked to make sure my card is connected correctly, and it is.

AMD phenom 9500 Quad Core 2.20 GHZ
3g RAM
Vista 32-bit.

Please, help me out here. I am stuck as to why I am not getting what I paid 200 dollars for.

I suspect that you still have your old graphics drivers on your computer. You should make sure that you have uninstalled all old graphics drivers and replace them with new graphics drivers that are developed specifically for your new graphics card. You should remove your old NVIDIA drivers by uninstalling them from the 'Add/Remove Programs' utility. Then you should check your 'Device Manager' to make sure that your 'Display Adapters' drivers have been uninstalled. Don't forget to restart your computer right after uninstalling the old drivers!

Go to NVIDIA.com, go to the 'Download Drivers' section, and fill in information about your computer to get the correct graphics driver. Make sure that you fill in the information fields correctly, or you might get the wrong graphics driver! Remember to restart your computer right after installing your new graphics drivers!

Good luck!

I have recently upgraded to Windows 7 32bit and am currently using a Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT. The version is 257.21. I keep getting a message saying my windows Nvidia kernel driver mode has stopped responding but has successfully recovered. I get this anytime I open multiple windows, play video games or even load youtube or facebook videos. On occasions, I am not even doing anything but moving my mouse and the screen blacks out before receiving that message 3-4 secs later.

I have tried almost 10 driver updates from the Nvidia website but to no avail, it still gives me the same graphic card crashing problem. Previously, I was on Windows XP Home and have totally no problems with my video card.

Hope to get some help from here soon! I've spent the last 3 days of my life trying to fix this! Apparently it's a very common problem but from all my googling I have not found a fix yet. Hopefully someone here can help me! *fingers crossed* =)

As you expected, this is graphic card issue. Stop code 116. First thing to try is to re-install the graphic card drivers. When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Do you have another graphic card to try on your system or perhaps borrow from friend?

i am running the following specs on my computer and almost all my games (like nfs prostreet, assasins creed, guitar hero) run slow/stutter, even when i run them on absolutly low settings. but some games like portal runs fine!

Windows XP SP2
Intel P4 2.66 GHz
Nvidia 9600 GT 512 MB
i think the problem is the processor, but i just wanna confirm before upgrading. i am on a 450W PSU, is it enough or that might be causing any prooblem. sometimes, even online games like ypool are stuttering just a tad bit....
if the processor is the problem, they i can buy a intel dual core 2.4 GHz, will it be fine?
please help me out with this.

i have attached my dxdiag file.

I just got my Nvidia Geforce 9600 GSO pcie video card in the mail today and hooked it up to my pci express slot in my Dell Inspiron 531 computer and when i powered on my computer ,all I got was a real loud screeching sound so I turned the computer off, On my video card it has a power connector slot but I cant find where to plug it in at and i think maybe with my computer model what i am needing to plug it in is not included due to them saving money and not including old connectors..

A:Solved: Nvidia 9600 GSO video Card on a Dell Inspiron 531

It's not an old connector. It's the new(ish) PCI-E 6-pin power connector, standard to any quality power supply today. And anyways, your card wouldn't propably run with the Dell's crappy low-power crap-quality power supply even if it had a PCI-E 6-pin connector.

I have posted two good power supplies in the other thread..

Nvidia losing money over defective GPUs

by Justin Mann on August 13, 2008, 12:00 PM

Nvidia?s recent struggles with GPU manufacturing are definitely taking its toll on the company. As a result of manufacturing defects and the inevitable fallout from it, it seems that Nvidia has gone from enjoying a few beautiful years on top to actually losing money recently. In particular, Nvidia saw a decrease in revenue for the second quarter of this year, resulting in a financial loss for the company.

In total, they lost over $120 million, and recent cuts in sales haven?t helped them out either. They outright admitted that they underestimated AMD, but nobody can really blame them for that.

Yesterday, it was speculated that there were manufacturing defects in the G92 and G94 chipsets, on top of the already known bad parts in the G84 and G86 series. Nvidia may have tried to avoid blame here and there, but ultimately it is coming down on them and they have been stuck with warranty replacements galore. Even if the newer chipsets are fine, it doesn't do anything to remedy the mass amounts of defective ones already sold.

A:nVidia 8700/8800/9600/9800 chips are failing across the board

I tried Nvidia, but they just weren't as good as ATI. My biggest regret, was that when I came back to Intel, that I didn't keep my two X1800's that I had, bought the 975XBX2, 4GB's of DDR2 800 memory, my Core 2 Duo E6600 last year and done.

I had a lot of trouble with the Nvidia chipset motherboard I had towards last, and the drivers for the two 640MB 8800GTS'S that I had, and this is why I bailed out of Nvidia in March.

I believe it that Nvidia has a problem with defective video chips right now.

I downloaded the latest driver for my graphics card yesterday from the nvidia site. Would like to hear the best way to install it. I've heard that if the old driver isn't removed properly then I'll have no end of problems. Any tips?


A:Updating nvidia driver


If you install it, click Custom install. It should list a check box for a "clean install", and if you click it, it will automatically do all of this for you. However, you will have to (rather, only if you want to) go through the Nvidia Control Panel and set all of the settings back to how you liked them set.
