NVIDIA Graphic Drivers Update Gone Wrong

I was advised to update the drivers for my graphic card by the tech support of an online world I visit.
I have a NVIDIA GeForce G100 graphics card. I went to www.nvidia.com and downloaded and started to install the driver updates for my card. The install never finished, or didn't appear to. A system restore was done to before the time I tried to to the update and that seemed to go well. But now when I try to watch video..say for example a YouTube video, it shows me about the first 15 seconds or so of the video and then the screen goes green. I still hear the audio, but am not getting the visual.
If anyone know what I can do to fix this please let me know.
thanks

Hi _Aviva_,

Please access your Device Manager by clicking on Start > Run

Then copy and paste DEVMGMT.MSC into the box and click OK.

Once inside the Device Manager look for an error that is similar to this --> Posted Image

You may have to expand the Display Adapters by clicking on the + sign to see the error if it is not already expanded.

It should say NVIDIA GeForce.

If found, Right click on that driver and choose properties. It will say if the device is working properly or not.

If an error is found, here is a link for the NVIDIA GeForce 100 Series, Product G100, Vista 32-bit Driver.

If you have a 64-bit system...that is the wrong driver. Let me know before you download/install it.

Thanks!

Donna :)

Hi Donna
Thank you for your response :)

I did as you suggested and it shows no error, and looking at the properties indicate that the device is working properly...
I would appreciate anymore advice you may have

Hi _Aviva_

Hmmm. I'm not quite sure what the problem may be then. It may be your Grapics Card itself. Though I'm not sure how to test a Graphics Card without replacing it.

Let's see if one of the other members knows a bit more about this. I'll search for more info. on this and post back if I find something.

Donna :)
