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?

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.

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.

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.

Agp Nvidia Graphics Card Aero Support

Will an agp based nvidia graphics card support aero in windows 7? Ineveruseda graphics card before, but since il be using windows 7 ultimate from now on, wanted to know whether an graphics card which works with the agp port and run aero in windows 7. It supports vista completely and i hope the same is with windows 7.

Because my system does not have a pci-e based slot i am willing to buy an agp one. I am keeping my fingers crossed whether it will work windows windows 7 or not. Is it compulsory that the graphics card support directx 11? Mine supports only till 10 i guess.

Nvidia Geforce Gt 325m Graphics Card Problem

I have the asus-n61jv notebook with nvidia geforce gt 325m grpahics card on windows 7 32 bit. I downloaded the version 197. 16 driver from nvidia. By default my notebook detects the driver as standard vga graphics adapter. The chip type is detected as "intel(r)ironlake mobile graphics chipset". Now when i follow the manual driver installation the message i am receiving is "installing this device is not recommended because windows cannot verify that iy is compatible with your hardware. "

I have ignored the message and the nvidia geforce gt 325m is installed.

But when i go to

Control panel-> display-> change display settings and then click on the advanced settings link a window opened with the title "(default monitor) and properties". There is an adapter tab in there which i assume should list the details of the graphics card.

Here it is showing nothing i.e

Chip type: "unavailable"

Total available graphics memory: "unavailable" etc. One interesting point is even though the driver installation was successful when i shut down the computer and start it again it showed the message that "standard vga graphics adapter" is installed successfully and it replace the nvidia driver.

So i updated the driver files once again and the nvidia came back. On a test basis when i shut down the computer and start it again the "standard vga graphics adapter" took over once again. In device manager i can see two display adapters are listed:

1. Standard vga graphics adapter

2.nvidia geforce gt 325m

As fyi: i ran the wei but it reported an error and couldn't complete it. Any idea why is this happening?

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!

Solution To Alt Tab Not Working

This is not a question but a solution that took me about a month to find.consistently found alt tab to change programs would not work, and when i hovered over the taskbar at the bottom of the screen, the postage stamp image of the application would flash on once then disappear. Sometimes i could just not get an open application to maximize. Usually use my hp laptop at a workstation but when using it in another location noticed the problem had disappeared.

Figured there was something about the workstation. Tried back at the workstation and through a process of trial and error found it was a logitech skype usb speaker phone. It is a fairly old model - maybe 2007 - which i got as a freebee when i purchased a pc. It doesn't seem to like windows 7. Unplugged it and there is no further problem.

Unknown Solution In Action Center

My action center keeps telling me that there's a solution for a problem it encountered. When i try to read the solution, it loads for a while, then it tells me that the solution could not be downloaded with missing internet connection being the most likely cause. This cause guess is obviously wrong because i am online. Yet, the action center only names the most likely cause and absolutely fails in further troubleshooting, something it was created for.

Anyway, can anyone tell me how where to get further information on the problem and solution?

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.

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).

Nvidia Geforce 7500 Le Driver Issue

Have an hp pavilion desktop (few years old), with an nvidia chipset, geforce 7500 le version. I've had windows 7 ultimate installed for a few months, with no display problems. On 12/27 windows update presented me with an optional update to the driver (listed as microsoft corporation wddm).

Installed, then restarted. No problems for about 10 minutes, then the display went blank and the speakers made a loud buzzing. Restarted the pc, and the start-up screen has a pattern of lines, then a screen with zeroes where the lines were, then an error screen, and the pc reboots again, and i then have to start in safe mode.

Went to the nvidia site, and installed an update to series 7 cards listed as 09/27. Same problem. Now windows update is listing a recommended update to the driver. Tired it, but it appears to be the same nvidia septemeber driver, so the problem persists.

Tried restoring to prior to the update. Didn't fix it. Then tried restoring to a previous restore point. On start-up, even worse, as safe mode resulted in a blank screen with the mouse pointer on it. I have to change the driver to a standard vga graphics adapter for me to be able to boot the pc up. Any ideas ? Is the graphics card now useless, or can i correct this ?

Nvidia 9800 Gt Video Driver Crashes

I have downloaded and installed the latest, within the last two weeks, driver and it still crashes at least once or twice a day. I am running win 7 64 bit with 8 gigs of ram and plenty of hard drive space. When my machine reboots and it goes for the windows solution it won't even complete that part saying that i need to be connected to the internet. I am on a wifi constant connection and i leave everything on 24/7/365. I do reboot from time to time when loading software or for other reasons but this is ridiculous. If win 7 was designed by me it would fix these problems not run me around in circles.

Nvidia 8400 Gs Display Driver Freezes With Bsod

I have a hp m9040n pavilion elite desktop. I upgraded to windows 7 ultimate 32 bit about 6 months ago. It has been working fine, but last couple of weeks my pc keeps freezing with the display driver crashing. Either the last windows update or adobe flash player might have caused it? I tried various versions of nvidia windows 7 display driver with no success. Any suggestions?

Nvidia Go 6150 Gpu Driver Causes Blue Screen

I installed windows 7 ultimate-64 on my hp pavilion tx1000 series touchscreen laptop model tx1308ca with nvidia nforce go6150 gpu. I successfully used the old hp vista64 smbus & smu driver to get rid of the "processor" driver issue, and then used windows update to install the latest gpu driver (version 7. 15. 11. 7967 by nvidia).

Everything worked well, until i started the windows performance assessment test. The test goes through direct3d 9 tests without a hitch, skips all directx 10 tests, and goes to blue screen of death immediately upon starting the windows media tests. This happens every time and in the same "spot" when the test is run.

I later noted that windows crashes to bsod also every time i try to access the web cam (usb 2. 0 camera driver v. 6. 1. 7600. 16385 from windows update). I also could not access the fingerprint setup software (instant bsod), that got installed with authentec aes1610 driver v. 2. 0. 0. 18 from windows update. Bsod does not happen during any other usage of my laptop, but i do not use it to play games or videos.

I rolled back the graphics driver to standard vga with 1280x800 resolution, keeping all other drivers as they were, and was able to run the windows performance assessment test, use the camera & set up the fingerprint recognition software. No problems encountered, but the graphics assessment is at 1. 0 & gpu ram is not available.

Updating gpu driver back to the one from windows update brings all the bsod problems back. Upon re-start & recovery, i have allowed windows to report the problem to microsoft (on at least 10 occasions over the past month), but there is no resolution yet. I tried driver files suggested on hp support forum pages, on laptopvideo2go website, but none of them will install with go 6150 gpu on my laptop. I heard that old hp vista64 gpu driver will not work with windows7-64, but have not tried this option.

I also downloaded and successfully installed sp45169 from hp (suggested on hp forums for nvidia smbus & smu laptop driver under windows 7-64) - works fine but there is no improvement in bsod occurrences and causes. Is microsoft working with or without hp & nvidia on a solution to symptoms quoted?

The laptop is only 2 years old, but hp refuses to support this series for windows 7 and nvidia states that the manufacturer (hp) requested they do not supply the driver as it must be optimized for system management (thermal, lid closure, etc. Issues). This catch 22 is outrageous!  Can microsoft exert its considerable influence to help solve the driver issue?

Nvidia Geforce Go 6150 Display Driver Problem

About a month ago i decided to upgrade my computers from windows vista home premium to windows 7 home premium. On my desktop i decided to do a upgrade which worked out pretty good, no problems, however, on my laptop i decided to do the fresh install. Everything went great until a few days ago, when windows update upgraded the video driver (nvidia geforce go 6150), i started to have trouble.

I first noticed that when i would move a window the background image would change to white, then i noticed that in my browser firefox i couldn't change themes, every theme would not work, it would still revert to the default theme. My ms money program's iu which is blue is now white and doesn't display anything but black fonts and white backgrounds.

For the last few days i have been searching for a solution. I found a new driver for my video chip (8. 15. 11. 8610) dated 6/03/2009. It has improved the situation some, just barely, but, i need a better solution. My hardware is as follows: hp pavilion dv9000z cto notebook pc, amd turion(tm) 64 x2 mobile technology tl-56, 2 gb of ram.

Nvidia Geforce 8400m Gt Graphic Driver Not Working

Following my question about aero peek not working, i have come to realize that my graphic driver has not been installed properly and that the rating of my graphics is only 1. 0.

Therefore i went onto my laptop company's site and downloaded the latest graphic driver for windows vista 32bit. As i now have windows 7 32 bit, i put the driver's compatibility as windows vista and ran it as an administrator and restarted my laptop.

From the device manager, now it says nvidia geforce 8400m gt, as it should. However, when i go onto windows experience index, and run the assessment again, it says: [windows experience index for your system could not be computed: cannot complete assessment. Etc etc]

Any idea as to why this does not work? Plus, is there a specific way of installing the graphics driver on win7 to get this working again? P. S. As i have said, i have already downloaded the latest version of my graphics driver.

No Aero - Unable To Update Nvidia Display Driver

Windows 7 64 bit will not let me update the driver for my n vidia geoforce 9500 gt display adapter. When i try using windows update it repeatedly informs me an important update is available but when i try to install it i get the error message code 800f020b unknown error encountered. When i try rebooting the system it again fails to install the update despite trying. Using the change driver option in device manager similarly fails even when i point it to the correct driver which includes wdms support.consequently i can't use aero although when i originally installed windows 7 it was working correctly with aero.

Unfortunately i messed up by going to the n vidia site and downloading what claimed to be the latest driver! Please can some kind soul help me gat aero back. At the moment device manager fails to describe any display adapter although previously it was showing an unknown device which was working correctly! Needless to say i do have a display otherwise i couldn't be writing this!
