Title says it all, just installed the Nvidia card, I know this is a driver related issue I just don't know how to fix it I cannot find a driver version that will work not even the one that windows selects for the card, or the one on the disk supplied with the card. Any help will be appreciated.
What happens when I try to install
Any driver that does install causes a BSOD the driver disk says it supports windows 7 and the drivers on the disk cause a BSOD too i'm at a loss of what to do.
Yes I uninstalled the intergrated drivers. PCIE x16 Card from Gainward Tried multiple driver versions
Versions that wont install because they cannot pick up card 190.38, 191.07, 196.21, 197.45
Versions that install and cause BSOD 258.96, 260.99, The drivers on the disc (not sure of the version) and drivers from the gainward website (driver version 263.14)
I tried a fresh install on Windows 7 64bit using the 263.14 drivers and that BSOD so I must wonder if installing vista would help at all.
The computer is now running windows Vista 32-bit, I just installed a 650w PSU so I know that the card is now getting more than enough power. Just installed the latest drivers from gainward version 266.77 and still BSOD I'm at a loss for what to do now :( Tried the latest drivers from nVidia still to no avail, could it be my computer isn't compatible with the card?
Why is it older drivers cannot detect the card? eg version 196.6 I downloaded nVidia drivers from Acer for my computer and they wouldn't detect the card.
I really wish someone could help me I can't afford to buy another graphics card.
It's been 3 months surely you guys have an answer
--After Two Hours internet searching--
I came across a few solutions none that worked.
- Replaced the file nvlddmkm.sys with the latest version
- Deleted the services nvsvc and nvlddmkm as advised too someone else
- Deleted my a/v done the other points above and re-installed latest drivers.
Did everything stated in the bullet points, then ran driver sweeper then re-installed drivers, still a BSOD I'm just going to pressume that the graphics card is DOA.
Should there be an extra power connection too support the x16 PCIe slot, im sure x16 slots require extra power and i've got the connection on my PSU just no-where too plug it in
