Hi,

I have just reinstalled windows and it it seems that whatever i do my pc will not pickup my nvidia geforce graphics card, Also under device manage it shows no display adaper ( even when i select show hidden devices),

When i try and install the Latest geforce nvidia driver i get a error messege telling me 'The Nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware, setup will now close'

I then looked through the Nvidia website and it said if you are experiencing any problems you should install the 'Unfied driver' I can manage to download this fine however when i goto install it It seems to get just to the beginninng of installing it self then it closes, no error message or anything is given...

Does anyone have a clue what i can do?


Thanks

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. Is this an AGP video card or a pci video card? Check your bios to make sure it is set right for your configuration. Press the del key as it boots up to access the bios. If the bios is correct and it still does not work, you could try re-seating the video card. Open the case, and using appropriate anti static discharge precautions, remove and then reinstall the card. Then reboot and see if windows will detect the device.
