Problems With Nvidia Gtx 260


I just recently upgraded to win7 home premium 64bit. Am having problems with driver for my gtx260 card. The driver installed by windows is driver provider: nvidia, driver date:5/14/2009, driver version 8. 15. 11. 8593. My problem is stability and compatibility. It usually takes several attempts to get to the desktop (computer freezes during various stages of window startup). I proceeded to install latest driver 257. 21 but i can't even get to the desktop with this driver. I had to go into safe mode and roll back driver.

I don't know if i should start trying older versions of drivers 197. 45 or earlier.
I have updated all my other drivers and windows.system is not overclocked

Motherboard gigabyte ga-p35c-ds3r rev1. 0 with latest bios 12e
Bfg tech gtx260 video card, 896mb, mc8960cde

I also have an old msi 8600gts board i could try. I'm hoping you experts can give me some direction.

Gtx 260 Dual Graphics Cards

Is there any gain in using twin sli graphics cards? i.e. If you had two gtx 260 cards how much would you gain? Would it double the cards memory or would you only get a percentage, of the second card. Hope thats clear.

Bfg Gtx 260 Won't Support Aero

My last graphics card didn't support aero, so with my hard earned cash, i went out and bought this card. The technicians i spoke to said it should work just fine. Well, it isn't and while i like how the fan is a lot quieter than my previous card, the whole point of getting it was so i can stare at a pretty, aero-enabled screen. If i wanted to stare at windows 7 starter, i would have just stared at my netbook.

Here are my system specs if it helps.

1000 watt psu
250 & 500 gig hdd
Creative 5. 1 sound card
4 gigs ddr2 ram
2. 66 ghz core 2 duo
Bfg gtx 260

Nvidia Gtx 295 Update

I am running windows 7 ultimate. Windows update recently offered an optional update for the nvidia geforce gtx 295 graphics processor (approximately 145 mb). Since i started using a windows 7 machine, i don't recall windows update has ever offered an update for the nvidia graphics processor before. I am already using the latest nvidia driver which i obtain directly from nvidia (which was an approximately 117 mb install file).

I'd like to find out more information about this update before i opt to download and install it. I want to know specifically what it is and if it differs from driver releases from nvidia (does it contain additional functionality specific to windows 7). How can i do this?

Nvidia 8800 Gtx Drivers Issue

Whilst installing windows 7 ultimate, signature edition 64bit, on a machine using nvidia 8800 gtx xxx cards, windows 7 installer will eventually progress to installing drivers and updates, and upon doing so it will halt to a black screen and pop up an 80x25 (dos) cursor in the top left of the screen.

This is apparently (and was) a common issue with nvidia drivers on the newer cards (installing 182. Xx drivers) - however it appears that in at-least the dvd sent to me from microsoft, the drivers are automatically installed, causing the lock.

After this lock, leaving it there for around 3 hours of no activity, the machine can be manually reset, and windows 7 starts up to a point, and (before logon) it says:

The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install windows, click "ok" or restart the computer, and then restart the installation.

This also occurs in safe mode. Is there a way (software) around this and if so how? If there is a way to do a manual install (ie like in xp where you could type in the command line a bunch of parameters to tell it not to install drivers) then that would be fantastic since i can just tell it to skip nvidia drivers, and then manually install the correct ones later on.

Nvidia Gtx 280 Graphics Problem

Running w7 ultimate 32 bit. My graphics card is a nvidia gtx280. Problem- when i run a game or even spider solitaire, the screen gets covered in a pattern and pixelated (at one point it was shutting my screen down to power saver mode). Will use this game as an example - rainbow 6 las vegas - i have downloaded all latest patches and also drivers 196. 21 and beta driver 196. 34. I booted in safe mode and removed driver, then did a clean with driver sweeper and installed new driver as above. All worked well until i turned machine off. On next startup all was the same again so went through the process with beta driver - same result again.

I checked the driver in device manager and what seems to happen is that win 7 uploads its own signed driver everytime as follows

Driver files
C:windowssystem32drivers
Vlddmkm.dll
C:windowssystem32
Vd3dum.dll
C:windowssystem32
Vwgf2um.dll

Version wddmv1. 1
File version 8. 15. 11. 8593
Driver date 14. 05. 2009

Now this is an old driver but keeps reinstalling itself no matter what i do. How do i get 7 to accept the new driver? The funny thing is it affects spider solitaire but not frecell on the freebie windows games - go figure. I am totally at a loss and fed up rebooting my machine with what is obviously a windows problem and no support there now as i'm told to contact my comp manufacturer. Sorry but he is miles away from me since i moved.

Slow Boot After Installing Nvidia Gtx 470

I've been having an issue where, after i install a recently purchased asus engtx470 without installed drivers, the computer takes 10+ minutes to boot. When the boot first starts, i can hear the hd accessing information, but about 30 seconds to a minute in, the hd activity stops, and the boot simply hangs on the w7 logo. After about ten minutes, the hd starts to access again, and it finally gets to the login screen. When i log in, the computer's performance is horrendous, and a gadget that i have on the desktop tells me that it is using a great amount of system resources, but doing basically nothing.

I have talked to asus, even rma'd the card and received a brand new one, but the card is not the issue. I have taken out all other devices looking for a conflict, and one is not to be found. I have replaced the psu and the problem still exists. I have gone into safe mode and removed all display drivers, and the problem still exists.

I have used a selective startup, eliminating all non-microsoft services and the problem still exists. I have installed latest nvidia gtx 470 drivers and it still exists. I have performed a clean install of windows 7 and the problem still exists (the install actually went slower than it normally should). If i uninstall the new gfx card and re-install an older one, the problem goes away.

I have booted into xp and used a furmark stability test on the card, and it works fine. Xp boots perfectly (doesn't hang on load and its performance is normal) and it utilizes the card just fine.
I originally believed this was a hardware problem, as did asus after we attempted many software solutions. But after trying twice as many hardware solutions, i am again under the impression that it is a software problem, specifically with the os. I have come here hoping that someone can help me after reading of people having similar boot issues; i.e: extremely long boot times as well as the hd accessing at the beginning of the boot, but ceasing to do so after about a minute.

This is realistically my last hope. I have literally no clue what is going on here or how to fix it, and i consider myself very good with pc troubleshooting.

W7 x64 installed on a 320gb western digital sata 2 hd xp installed on a partition of an 80gb maxtor foxconn renaissance motherboard intel core i7-920 6gb (3x2gb) ocz 1333 ram kit asus xonar dx sound card lg sata dvd burner zonet wireless lan card ocz 700 watt psu asus nvidia gtx 470

Geforce Gtx 275, No Sound To Tv Using Hdmi

Hello, i've tried to search for a resolution with no luck so i hope you can help. I recently bought a new tv, the murphy hd ready digital lcd tv (with usb record) model number: tv32uk30d. I have the geforce gtx 275 and have now for 2 days been trying to enable the sound to the new tv. The video is fine, it's just the sound. I cant even see it in my sound options:

Although i'm not sure what the usb item is, as i have no usb sound device plugged in, just headphones (mic built in) plugged directly into the sound card. The tv guide tells me the hdmi is up to 1080i, thats enough ye ?

Geforce Gtx 260m Video Drivers Will Not Install

After windows 7 clean install video drivers will not install and say hardware that worked a mere few days ago no longer exist. When i first received windows 7 in the mail a couple weeks ago i decided to do an upgrade from vista rather than a clean install. At first it seemed fine, but then i noticed windows were crashing left, right and center and my computer was freezing at random occasions and quite often. So this week i finally caved in and decided to do a clean install and start from scratch. Backed up my files on an an external hard drive and got down to business.

Windows 7 finally installed and i had absolutely no freezing or issues. Then i realized aero, thumbnails and other effects were not working. I decided to do a windows rating and for some reason my video card was a 1. 0 and diverted to "standard vga graphics adaptor" from my normal 1gb nvidia geforce gtx 260m. I then tried to install the proper driver downloaded directly from the nvidia site only to receive the error "the nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware".

I then tried disabling the drivers in the control panel, in the bios menu, auto repair though system security in the control panel and every other method from reinstalling windows 7. The most frustrating thing was that when i did an upgrade the driver worked perfectly and i had no problems whatsoever with it despite all the crashing and freezing. This is a brand new laptop from only a few months ago.

Does anyone have any recommendations? 

Edit: one of my hard drives are now missing, the computer tried to boot up and said no os existed, i've had my computer start and go to a black screen where the desktop should have been, froze on startup and various other problems. None of these issues occurred with vista, let alone the upgraded windows 7 and now i'm beginning to worry just what the clean install did to my computer.

Asus En 9800 Gtx Graphics Card Trouble

I performed a clean install of windows 7 on my pc and now i have some major graphic performance issues. At first sight the graphics seem ok, but they are very very slow. Resizing windows, scrolling on webpages, or starting up a game all looks like i have a 1mb vga card. Even a 2d game runs on less than 1 fps. I have tried various drivers for my graphics card, even physically swapped it for an old 6800gt (same thing, but then again also the same drivers).

There is no abnormal cpu or memory usage and other than the graphics the system runs fine. The very same system worked perfect on xp and vista.system details:windows 7 pro 64 bit, directx 11. Sus striker ii formula mbintel core2 duo e8400, currently unlocked at 3. 00 ghz asus en9800 gtx graphics card 4 x 2gb ocz memory - 4gb dual channel did anyone experience this, and maybe have a solution to it?

Bsod Using Nvidia 8600gts

Absod using nvidia 8600gts - tried multiple driver versions, no luck, anyone have a quick fix for this issue, which allows me to use both of my monitors? 

I've been running vista x64 home premium since mid '07 with relatively few problems, but i wanted to try out windows 7, so i bought an upgrade to win 7 x64 home premium over the weekend. The system immediately became quite unstable, rarely working for 10 minutes without an abrupt reboot or freeze. Through experimentation i was able to turn the problem off/on by disabling/enabling the pci-e graphics card and instead using the built-in graphics card on the motherboard.

With my add-on card active, the computer will crash randomly when surfing the web or performing usual windows activities, like browsing the start menu. It can be forced to crash rapidly by personalizing the desktop and clicking a few aero schemes one after the other - it rarely allows more than one or two clicks before freezing or rebooting. The add-on video card is a msi nx8600gts-t2d256ez hd (geforce 256mb 128-bit gddr3 pci-e x16)

I've tried a few versions of nvidia drivers to no avail - there is really no notable difference in the crash behavior. I ran the memory test tool and it found no problems. I've even tried "underclocking" the gpu using a tool from nvidia, but that also had no effect. Crashes are less frequent if i turn off aero (but still occasionally occur when browsing websites). To reiterate, crashes are completely stopped (aero or not) if i disable the nvidia card and use the built-in graphics on my motherboard.

Nvidia 8800gt Drivers Help

I have had this graphics card for a while, and i like it very much. Never had a problem with it from xp to vista. For the first few months of win7 i never had a problem. However, ever since the windows important updates through windows update a few weeks ago my nividia card stops responding, the drivers will fix the issue, windows and my card will fight for a while and then i get the bsod nvlddmkm.sys error code.

I always update my drivers manually, so i double checked and found out there was a newer driver that came out a few days after i began having this problem. No change. I use the solution center which hardly ever works or gives good information and basically everything aside from removing my nvidia drivers i had already done before seeking help. Since then i have removed the nvidia drivers and now its hit or miss on if windows will fully load before telling me there is a kernal problem and that my video card stopped responding. If it does load i usually have about a minute to 3 minutes before i have this problem.

I uninstalled the nvidia drivers and later deleted them one at a time. With no nvidia drivers in my computer i still get nvlddmkm.sys bsod which is only present in system32(since it's using the windows version of the drivers).

I've checked the compatibility of my hardware and the only other thing i have issues with is my lachesis mouse's cursor flying to the left on rare occasion (but that only started in vista, and im not too concerned).

I've run out of ideas, and the only other thing i can think of is that one of the windows updates did state that some programs or devices may work better or worse after this update, but not like this ever happened until the more recent windows updates.

Off the top of my head i'm running:
Windows 7 ultimate
Nvidia geforce 8800gt 512
2x 2gb ddr2 1066
Intel core 2 3. 0 proc
Gigabyte mobo recommended/bundled with proc
Razer lachesis
Thermaltake 700w psu
Wd 250gb hd (boot)
Wd 1tb sata hd
Lg dual-layer dvd burner/reader w. Lightscribe

Any ideas/assistance would be greatly appreciated. But again no hardware changes since before i got vista ultimate. Within the last 3-4 months no software updates (aside from malware/spyware/windows essentials) outside of windows update important updates, and the nvidia driver.

Nvidia Geforce Go 7400

I recently upgraded my sony vaio la1 desktop pc to windows 7 32bit from windows xp 32bit. Everything seemed to go to plan, except that my nvidia geforce go 7400 graphics card is not being recognized. Windows is instead displaying a 'standard vga graphics adapter' that will not let my computer display in its native 16:9 resolution, instead forcing it to display a stretched 4:3
I fully expected my computer not to run aero following the upgrade, but for the drivers for my graphics card not to work at all is extremely annoying.

I have tried downloading the drivers direct from nvidia, but when i try to install them, the installer simply says that it cannot find the nvidia card and cancels. Sony is no use at all.
I am a designer, so to not be able to see things in the correct resolution is going to severely affect my work!

Conflict Using Hauppauge And Nvidia

I recently installed hauppauge hvr in my new computer which uses a nvidia graphics card. Everything seems to work except the video input (using s-video) from a digital video camera (mounted on a microscope). The picture trough my win tv 7 is split, with the bottom half at the top of the screen and the top half at the bottom, separated by 3 colour bars across the screen. The picture is otherwise in black and white but should be in coulour. A second feed going directly to a tv is fine. Everything works as it should using usb live and windows xp. I am using windows 7 ultimate. We really need this to work as our business depends on it.

Nvidia Geforce 8800 Problem

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit will not let me overclock or even change fan speeds on my video card nor even allow any software including nvidia to show gpu and memory speed. Right now i'm hating windows 7 x64 simply put, other than simple online tasks, i like to benchmark video cards and play a few games, right now windows found and installed proper drivers for my 8800gts 512 video card but does not allow evga precision or even nvidia software to show it's core stats or allow them to be adjusted, nor can i use nvidia own software to change 3d settings ie anti-aliasing etc, just nothing works!

Even when i go to the control panel and look at hardware it shows only my monitor not my graphics card, it's like it doesn't exist yet when i click on properties tab for my monitor and under device function summary in the hardware tab it shows the location of my monitor as "on nvidia geforce 8800 gts 512 (microsoft corporation - wddm v1. 1) so what the gives? It's like the card works, but completely untouchable settings-wise and if i try to install drivers myself from nvidia, just gives me errors!

Nvidia Driver Has Recovered From A Serious Error

I've been having a problem since installing windows 7, that while playing games my screen will flash black then turn normal again and i'll get a pop-up saying "nvidia driver has recovered from a serious error" or something similar. This usually happens only once a day after a 1-2 hours of playing. Ive installed the latest nvidia driver today and instead my fps dropped very low for about a minute and then the screen went black and then returned to normal. This is what the action center says:

Nvidia Driver Crashing Windows

I have a hp dv9000 laptop with nvidia geforce 8600m graphics card. After i installed windows 7 on it, i tried to update it with the latest driver from nvidia website. As soon as the installation is completed, it prompts for a restart and the windows crashes upon restart. I have tried this numerous times and it is consistent every single time. The only option i have is to restore it back and then use the standard vga graphics adapter. Unfortunately, this means that i cannot use it for any games or any of the advanced features. Even at a minimum, i cannot even change the brightness of the screen.

Any help is appreciated, even how to increase the brightness will help. I have already tried fn+f8 and all other hotkey combinations.

Nvidia 9800gt Driver Problems

I am currently running nvidia 9800 gtx+. My board is intel dg33fb and the manufacturer is dell i guess. The problem which i am facing is that my display goes black after the booting screen of windows 7. I have the latest driver and softwares, however this problem does not happen when i boot into safe mode. When i disable the nvidia 9800gtx+ graphic adapter from device manager, it then boots normally. Also i have noticed that sometimes the fan speed of pc increases when i boot up, it is then only the display goes to onboard vga. When i turn of the power and turn on the fan speed is normal but it has the problem i mentioned earlier.

Usb 2.0 Problem On A Non Nvidia Chipset

I recently did a clean install of windows 7 64-bit on a gigabyte motherboard (ga-790xta-ud4, amd 790x sb 710 ) with 4gb ddr3. I'm having problems transferring to and from my usb2. 0 thumb drives and external hdd. File transfer window will hang up on me and with error message g: drive no longer exist or can be found. Reboot machine and problem still persists. Apparently 500mb or larger file transfers will give this error. No problem if i try it on my old winxp machine.

I actually found a hotfix for similar problem on system with nvidia chipset and 4gb ram and wonder if i should apply it on my machine which is a non-nvidia chipset? Any advice?

Nvidia Quadro Fx 330 Driver

My company develops cad applications. I have to check w7 compatibility with all of our products.

My test machine specs:
Cpu: p4 3. 0 ghz ht
Ram: 2. 5 gb ddr2 533 mhz
Vga: nvidia quadro fx 300

I know that quadro fx 330 is not one of win7 compatible video cards by it supports dx9 an sm 2. 0
Windows update downloads fx 330 drivers automatically, but they are too old as for me (august 2006). I get lots of artifacts even on desktop with classic theme and continuous blue screens and errors with aero interface which is supported by this graph. Adapter. Can you update quadro series drivers since they are commonly used by our customers (in small business).

Video Card (nvidia) Problem

A friend's system runs dual-boot (xp and win7).initially with on-board video chip but this was very slow in graphics, so a video card (nvidia geforce 8000 series) was bought. Under win7 the system hangs after some time (even if not being used), but not under xp. So, back to the shop, replaced the video-card with a geforce gt220. Same problem: system hang after some time, but no problems under xp. We have replaced the driver with newer and older versions, but no difference.

Win 7 Freezes Due To Nvidia

Running windows 7 64-bit home premium, after upgrade from vista 64-bit. (The upgrade was from the manufacturer, asus. )Nvidia graphics card geforce gt 220, driver version 196. 21. The system has started crashing frequently. It freezes. We cannot connect this with any particular application or activity. Lso, a flag icon is now appearing in the system tray. When i mouse over it, i see "solve pc issues:  4 messages". I clicked it and it listed the 4 messages, one of which was, "address a problem with nvidia graphics driver. " 

So i click this and i see a window in which it says, "opening solution . "  This lasts for a while but eventually it says, "this solution could not be downloaded. "  I am on the internet so there shouldn't be a problem with downloading anything. Anyway, on the same window i see where i can click, "view all problems this applies to. "  So i click that, and i see a list of some, but not nearly all, of our recent crashes. So there is some connection between nvidia and our crashes, but i can't get any further with this. Do you know what is going on?

Cannot Get Nvidia Graphics Card Working

I have a gateway pc, model e-4610d sb. I upgraded to w7 32 bit from w vista 32 bit. Everything was running beautifully before i upgraded (so why did i upgrade?. Christmas present. ). Anyway, i have lost my nvidia card and my ability to run aero. My wei has dropped nearly two whole points because i can only get my onboard graphics chip to work. I have tried every driver known on nvidia and gateway forums/websites. I have now clean installed w7, back to w vista, then back to w7.

I have uninstalled and re-installed all drivers and the card itself. It is a nvidia geforce 7600 gs. I cannot find the manufacturer of the card because gateway will not support me any longer (they sold the division handling my computer configuration to mpc who went bankrupt). Everything else is working very well. Much better than vista, in fact. Except this.

Is there anyone on here who can help? Please ask if i have performed a task before telling me to do so. Most likely i have already tried it and i can just tell you what the results were. I am really looking for someone who has specific knowledge of this exact issue and how to get the card to show up in the device manager.

Winfast Px7300 Gs (nvidia) Not Work

I have got the winfast px7300 gs (geforce, 256) and the dp35dp intel motherboard. I had had windows vista 64bit and all things worked well before i bought windows 7, but now when i upgrade my vista to 7 at the end of the setup , my monitor screen changes to black and after some minutes only my background is shown without any desktop icon and windows taskbar, and i can't do anything, and when i restart my computer the welcome screen isn't shown and there is no icon and taskbar again.

I have setup the last driver (190. 45) in "safe mode" but it wasn't worked, but when i disable the display driver from "safe mode" all things work well now i want you to tell me what should i do?

Nvidia Geforce 9500m Gs Not Recognizing

I went to the asus download page to see if there's a more upto date driver for the graphics card. There isn't. I ran the windows compliance software and the result made no mention of any difficulty with the display adapter. Is there a fix for this or have i paid good money for nothing?*Original title - i'm running vista32 ultimate (sp2) on my asus m51sn notebook. I bought windows 7 and tried to install. The os apparently could not see my graphic card: nvidia geforce 9500m gs. *
