Cant Install New Graphics Driver


I recently upgraded an older computer [dell dimension 4550] to windows 7 and found i needed a graphics card that supports directx 10. After i installed it & turned the computer on, a standard vga graphics adapter was automatically added with no option to cancel. The instructions for new driver requires the removal of old driver before proceeding.

I went to device manager and uninstalled the standard vga driver but of course, to complete the uninstall, i must reboot my computer. This automatically reinstalls the standard vga again . Please help me out of this endless loop. There must be some simple way to stop this madness!

Display Driver Intel Graphics Accelerator Driver Stopped Responding

I just installed windows 7 and it has been running beautiful up until i tried to connect my computer to my tv using an s-video cable. The screen repeatedly goes black and then i get a blue screen if i do not unplug the s-video cable. The error message that follows the screen going black reads "display driver intel graphics accelerator driver for windows vista(r) stopped responding and has successfully recovered". Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Unable To Install A Second Graphics Card

I decided to treat myself and give my computer an upgrade to 3d-readiness which in my mind also meant increasing my number of screens to 3 as well. I already had 2 screens, a 24" hp and a 19" lg, running off an nvidia gtx 295 and i was hoping to simply add a second independent card to run my new 3d monitor (alienware optx aw2310). This is where i've hit problems though, my second card is a nvidia gtx 480 however when i try to boot my pc with both cards it either gets stuck on the windows logo or moves onto a black screen with a move able cursor and then stays on that. I'm currently running windows 7 home premium 64 bit.

I've tried both cards separately and they both work, it's simply when both are connected that it refuses to boot up. My motherboard is the asus rampage ii extreme so has 3 dvi-e slots and the layout i'm trying to use is: gtx 480 -> gtx 295 -> sound card. I'm not trying to use the cards in sli however i'm not sure if the motherboard has a switch that needs to be turned on for more than 1 card regardless of if it's in sli or not.

I'm not sure if there's something that needs to be done with the bios settings either?

Graphics Driver Failure On Startup

I have just purchased a new laptop, each time i logon to windows the screen would flash black at some point and the error message would popup, see below. The peculiar thing is it does not happen when i restart the system repeatedly, the error appears only when i switch on the machine for the first time in the day or after it was left overnight. Im wondering whats wrong here. Have already reinstalled the graphics driver for both individually. http://img339. Imageshack. Us/img339/2396/drivererror.png

My specs:asus a42jc windows 7 home premium 64 bit intel i5-450m, with integrated intel hd graphics nvidia 310m.

Nvidia Graphics Driver Stops Working

My action center is consistently telling me to address a problem with nvidia graphics driver. It has stopped working multiple times. Usually it recovers, but it has occasionally forced a shut down, and once or twice i've gotten a blue screen. I've tried to "address" the problem through the action center, and it always tells me the solution can't be downloaded and i should check to make sure my computer is connected to the internet. It's always connected. I've downloaded other solutions but this one always returns the same problem.

I've got an hp 87340w with a docking station and extra monitor - so it is set up for a dual display when on the docking station. I think the problem most often occurs when resuming from a period of inactivity - so the display turns off to save power. I've also gotten it when switching from laptop to dual display (that is, when i put the laptop back on the docking station). I used to get problems when the video was running, so i always make sure i'm not using video when i switch.

I've reinstalled the graphics driver, and even reinstalled windows. I'm not really sure what to do since i don't even know what the problem is and windows gives me no options after it fails to download the solution.

Nvidia Driver Update For Graphics Card

Today i had something weird happen to my windows 7 pro system. I went and updated my nvidia drivers to the new ones that came out today. I removed the old ones and installed new ones. When i went to restart after the start screen came up i got a message telling me that my windows 7 did not pass the genuine advantage. I had to download an activation fix from microsoft. I didn't have to re-enter my product key. Now this was only an update to my graphics card. What gives?. Why did this happen. Even ms security essentials gave me a warning until i applied the activation update.

Graphics Adapter Driver For Gateway 7330gz

My mom recently had a virus on her gateway 7330gz laptop and couldn't find her gateway os cd, so we bought and installed windows 7 professional 32bit. The installation went without a hitch, installed all the drivers, had to get older windows xp audio drivers as explained in this thread but other than that, not bad at all and runs pretty smooth. The only problem is, windows 7 installed the default graphics adapter driver and i can't find a real driver for my video adapter. I'm able to run at my laptop's native resolution, but there is no video hardware acceleration or anything like that, so even playing spider solitaire is near impossible and viewing youtube videos at fullscreen results in laggy viewing.

I've run intel's driver finder program and it says that i have a driver installed for it but the best one isn't supported by windows 7. And gateway's drivers for the 7330gz are from 2004 and are only for xp. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for me, or if anyone knows of a workaround or a current driver that would support my system.

Please Update Your Ati Graphics Driver Popup After Upgrading

After i upgraded from vista to windows 7 this pop-up is coming up every time. The catalyst control center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics adapter. Please update your ati graphics driver, or enable your ati adapter using the displays manager. I have tried everything and nothing works. It is not affecting any performance issues but just annoying.

Problem With Nvidia Graphics Driver - Solution Could Not Be Downloaded

I click on solve pc issues (the flag) and it says address a problem with nvidia graphics driver. I click it and it says "this solution could not be downloaded".

Most likely causes: your computer was unable to download the solution at this time. Check to make sure your computer is connected to the internet, and then try to download the solution again later.

I am connected to the internet, and windows update works, web browsing works etc. Why isn't it downloading the solution?

Graphics Card Driver Error Loading Windows

Before i start, i'd like to point some stuff out. I am using windows 7 ultimate x64 bit. I run a dell inspiron 530my video card is pny verto geforce gt 220 (nvidia 200 series)now my problem? My problem is that whenever i try loading windows normally, it goes thru the "starting windows" process, but upon the end of that, the monitor just freezes. Nothing happens, no welcome or desktop, can't see my mouse pointer. I narrowed this down to a video card error.

My video card that i bought had said: windows 7 compatible. Well, its not working, and i've tried a lot of stuff. I reinstalled the video card, got drivers from the manufacturer, used the drivers from the cd, reinstalled windows 7, startup repair, system restore, vista compatibility mode with drivers. A lot of stuff. I can run safe mode properly, but i need to know what this problem is, what can i do to fix it, and why is it acting like this?

This card is brand new too. Oh yeah, might want to point out that i used the windows update to get drivers too, that didn't work. The reason i know this is a driver/graphics card issue is because whenever i uninstall the card/driver, the computer works with a lot of graphic issues (no aero, low resolution, etc. )I also had no problem installing windows 7, startup repair couldn't find a reason or solution to whats going on, so please to you microsoft workers, people, community, please help me.

Ati Radeon Hd 4570 Graphics Card Driver Issue

I recently purchased a asus k40ab series laptop with ati hd4570, 512mb gpu. I have installed windows 7, 64x. The problem is that the hd4570 gpu is not working, i guess because of the driver (i don't think there is a driver for it yet). So, is there any way i can make it to work.

Install On Dell Inspiron 1564 With Ati Radeon 4330 Mobile Graphics Card

Windows 7 32 bit on dell inspiron 1564 (with ati radeon 4330 mobile graphics card). I have purchased a dell inspison 1564 laptop. My dealer tells me that the installed graphics card will only work with windows 7 64 bit edition. One key reason for purchasing this laptop was its graphics card. I own a windows 7 32 bit key. Shall i install it or would i need to buy a 64 bit key? Will installing the 32 bit version lessen the graphics experience on my system?

Wow / Graphics Error - Display Driver Nvlddmkm Stopped Responding

On the following computer, i am having terrible crashing issues while playing wow. The wow critical error states:"not enough memory to process command - 11, 538 bytes requested". When running 3d mark vantage i can reproduce the "display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered".

Processor intel(r) core(tm) i7 cpu 920 @ 2. 67ghz
Component details
Graphics nvidia geforce gtx 295
Gaming graphics 4095 mb total available graphics memory
Primary hard disk 53gb free (140gb total)
Vista ultamate 64 bit version with service pac 2

Forums are full of posters stating that this is a vista / nvidia incompatibility issue that has been around for years and that the problem is not being addressed. I have tried everything i can think of, from checking ram to downloading new drivers, to deleting wow junk folders. I have reseated everything, run every diagnostic tool on the plane, downloaded patches, checked for viruses and still no help.

I am currently able to play wow on the lowest graphics settings and avoidance of major cities. With this level of equipment, its a shame, i really should be able to do more. Has anyone got any suggestions of what i can do at this point?

Ati Radeon Hd 3200 Graphics Graphics Problem

I just upgraded windows 7 (twice now) and i'm experiencing graphics problems. It is most prevalent in windows media player and mozilla firefox.

Here's some pictures:
http://i254. Photobucket.com/albums/hh81/plasmaxwisp/errors.png
http://i254. Photobucket.com/albums/hh81/plasmaxwisp/erros2.png

It seems like the colors just drop off. And i know that windows media player does not look like that! The only internet browser that isn't affected by this is chrome. I've experienced another slew of graphics problems including a really bright wallpaper, but that inexplicably went away. I'm pretty sure i've updated my graphics card drivers. I've tried to load games, and they work with no problems; the problem only exists in these programs (as far as i know).

Computer specs:
Hp artist edition (this may contribute to the problem?) Laptop, pavilion dv6
Amd turion x2 ultra duel-core processor
Acpi 64 bit system
Ati radeon hd 3200 graphics card
4 gigs o' ram
Any additional specs needed? Just ask.

Install Older Device Driver

The driver that windows 7 installs for my audio device (idt high definition audio codec) doesn't work on my dell latitude e6410. I have the latest driver from dell, but it won't install unless i run the setup. I don't want to run setup, because a) i don't think device drivers should have to be installed this way, and b) i want to integrate the drivers into my mdt/sccm installation for windows 7. (I think) the root of the problem is that the dell-provided driver has a new driver version, but the date indicates that this driver is older than what is included with windows 7.

When i attempt to upgrade my driver and browse to my 'new' driver, windows 7 tells me that the device is already using the latest driver. I changed the date within the inf, and even went so far as to change the files dates to be one day newer that the microsoft-provided driver, but i still can't update the driver. Ny ideas?

Install Real Microsoft Bluetooth Driver

How to install the "real" microsoft bluetooth driver for windows 7? I am a developer. My system uses bluetooth and is designed to used socket connections. It works fine with the "real" microsoft driver. I distribute a usb radio that works with the real microsoft drivers (works and tested on windows 7 with microsoft drivers installed) i keep running into computers with oem (non microsoft drivers) that take control of all bluetooth devices.

In xp and vista i could generally update the driver and pick the correct one. In windows 7 i am finding computers on which the microsoft drivers appear to be missing and therefore i cannot pick them. It may also be that windows 7 is not allowing me to pick them (says best driver already installed. ) Is there somewhere to download and a way to install the native microsoft windows 7 bluetooth drivers on an oem modified system that does not include these drivers?

Cannot Install Canon Ip6700d Printer Driver

I have windows 7 64 bit set up with a canon ip6700d printer. I set up the printer to be shared on the network with another pc running windows xp 32 bit. When setting up the sharing options>additional drivers, i point to the x86 file: ip6700d. Inf located on the printer install disc. When i attempt to install the driver i get the message: "the specified location does not contain the driver canon inkjet ip6700d for the requested architecture" i have verified that it is the correct inf file by opening it. The following is the header info:

; Ip6700d. Inf (for windows x86 monolithic driver)
;
; List of supported printers, manufacturers
;

Provider=%canon%
Classguid={4d36e979-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
Class=printer
Catalogfile=ip6700d. Cat

Attempting to install the driver on the xp machine fails as well with the same file, when i try to add it as a network printer. Is there something i am missing?
