I have a MSI NVIDIA GTX770 - N770 TF 2GD5/OC that is not being recongnized by my windows 7 64 System.

The display adapter shows a warning in device manager and opening the nvidia control panel doesn't open .. (previously it said that you are correctly not using a monitor connected to a nvidia gpu"

Also my monitor shows "Default Monitor" instead of my Benq monitor.

What I've tried so far:

Uninstall drivers completely and throughly (including registry keys etc and using multiple methods).. reinstalling the correct drivers and older drivers.. no success.

I might add that I do not have a graphics card option in my bios so maybe it has something with the computer not detecting it?

Anything else I can try?

  • Did you use driver sweep in safe mode to completely wipe all display drivers before re-installing? – Yass Jan 31 '15 at 11:25
  • i didn't use driver sweep but I used a tool called "Display Driver Uninstaller" instead and it does it's thing in safe mode – ayrad Jan 31 '15 at 11:26
  • You've mentioned changing registry keys. Maybe you messed something up by doing that. Did you back up your registry before making the changes? – Yass Jan 31 '15 at 11:27
  • didn't backup but the only things I deleted where the keys named NVIDIA.. I also tried doing a system restore.. and the problem persists.. – ayrad Jan 31 '15 at 11:34
  • I'm not too sure then tbh. I'm assuming you've tried all of the ports on the graphics card, with different cables? – Yass Jan 31 '15 at 21:18

It ended up being my oculus dk2 display drivers that were causing issues. After uninstalling all the oculus drivers the card works!
