Ive just bought a new gaming pc. I installed windows 8.1(64bit) on my pc as thats the minimum requirements for most games. However my driver file says my graphics card is for a 32 system so i basically cant run games. Any ideas how to fix this?

  • What graphics card do you have? Basically you need the 64bit driver from the manufacturer, if there is one available. I can post a link to one once I have the graphics card information. – AwesomeMarioFan Dec 21 '16 at 6:38

The driver to download for your card would be located at: http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/113442/en-us.

When running the installer, you can select "Custom (Advanced)", then check the box that says "Perform a clean installation" to remove the previously installed 32bit driver. You can also custom select which items to install with the new driver.

  • Oh man, thanks so much! Ive been so stressed. – cal Dec 21 '16 at 6:50

  • Yep - glad you got it working! – AwesomeMarioFan Dec 21 '16 at 7:04
