So, i recently rebuilt, and i was going to try doing some PC gaming on W8. When i booted up Minecraft, i got an error. It stated that I don't have the right drivers for my Video Card! So, i posted this forum to see if anyone else has experienced the same problems, or know where to get the correct drivers. I will list my PC specs below.

Wow. I didn't expect it to be there. I searched EVGA's website for a solid 2 hours looking. I am installing now.

My result was unsuccessful. I got the following error message:

It's weird, because I AM using supposedly supported graphics hardware. :/

My error in thinking that with dabbling in W8 and that, you may have checked the W8 drivers on the link.

Nevertheless I apologise, I should have sent simply the link to GeForce drivers, as you will know that I did not know which W8 you had

Sorry for the ? I am not a gamer

Pleased you have the right driver now from the link I sent you for Nvidia GeForce drivers.

EVGA had clearly not bothered to update their driver list for Windows 8, probably with it being - NOT a recent model

Sorry, should have worded my post "for future reference". This was the last one for Nvidia Beta drivers, please read the whole post and the release notes at the bottom of the Nvidia download page > http://pcsupport.abo...-8-vista-xp.htm
