Preferred Solution: Video driver update difficulty

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If it were me I would use system restore (it works better from safe mode) to go back to before you installed the driver that messed you up.
Anytime you update your graphics drivers you should use a cleaner to remove any traces of the old one, otherwise you can have problems. I often use driver cleaner pro (the free version) from within windows immediately after uninstalling from the add/remove programs section (XP). Remove all drivers for the graphics but leave any chipset stuff for nvidia alone. Here's the order I uninstall (nview desktop manager then drivers then display control panel will give you an error cause the driver unistall allready got it) You can also uninstall the physx drivers if you have them and download a new version if you need it.

Then run "driver cleaner pro" (google it but download from a place you trust) and select the word "nvidia" only, thats the graphics drivers leave the chipset stuff alone. It will even remove the folder under your C drive where nVidia likes to extract its stuff. Then reboot and go into safe mode (for me its the F8 button repeatedly at boot) and in safe mode install the new drivers.

Failed to install a core driver means there was something still active on your machine and it couldn't replace it while it was running.

The best way to be sure you get drivers for your machine is to go to the nvida site and follow the support section entering your info as you go (usually a few windows putting the appropriate info in order, but its for cards only, not onboard video, if you have onboard video you have to go to the mobo manufacturers site). Start with your graphics (geforce) then the series (like 8) your card number (like a 8800gt) and finally your OS. there is also a button for letting them scan your machine and tell you what you need automatically. I don't do warcraft or any online gaming so I can't help you but perhaps installing the latest directx 9.0c (june redistibutable) might be a good idea too.

All your icons got big cause it reverted back to just a generic VGA driver when the install failed and your desktop looked like you were in safe mode where drivers do not get loaded but most can be installed.

Hello. First time and sorry for my bad english.  So...  My problem is I have alot of artefacts in some games. And first step in any recomendation - update video drivers. So I tryed to update it from HP site, but newest version for my notebook is 8.712.1.2000 (april 2010). (notebook i bought december 2010). Ok. I downloaded fresh driver from AMD 15.7.1 (march 2016). After installation in summary it sais about parameters not proper and linking to Radeon HD 4250 (not 5650). And Radeon HD 4250 must be update via Windows Update, but Windows use Radeon HD 5650 (and I want use 5650 to, bcouse windows rating  6.7 for 5650 and 4.2 for 4250!). Difference in Catalyst versions that i notice - 03.00.0765(from HP site) have "ATI NorthBridge filter driver" and new ones havn't. Sorry, that was to much, yeah? So questions. How 2 video cards can be in one notebook? Why i need 4250? How i can update Radeon 5650?

Hi, To update the driver, go to Device Manager > Display Adapters, right-click the Radeon entry and select Uninstall. Reboot into VGA mode, disable antivirus, install the new driver and reboot to complete.From looking at the AMD website this is showing as the latest update available but was posted Nov. 15, 2006 and is also showing as version 6.11, so try the above and that should give you the latest update available.

So--does anyone know how to manage this? How do you update Catalyst and the video driver?

Hello all. I'm trying to fix this strange mouse issue I'm having. Once every second my mouse will have this micro stutter. I've disabled that FMAP thing and the problem persists. When I search for solutions, most people say it's once every 2-3 seconds. For me, it's every single second. This doesn't happen on a fresh install and it doesn't happen immediately after booting up (only after 10-15 seconds). I haven't installed any weird software. Just a few drivers and essential programs. The stutter seems to sync up with the refresh rate of task manager which may be a clue? Or maybe not. Also, I'm trying to install the Energy Manager driver and I downloaded the .exe which downloads this install.cmd file and when I try to run it, this pops up for a second and disappears...and thats it.

Hi there everyone This morning I got an update notification from nVidia Experience that a new driver was available so I installed and rebooted On reboot It flashed the MOBO splashscreen then paused at the drive detection for over a couple minutes I thought it was frozen so I shutdown and restarted and it went through the splash screen and hung at the drive detection again I waited a bit then hit quot Any key quot and it looped once more to the splash screen only this time the screen appeared in incremental bands from top to bottom over the course of maybe seconds as if the computer was lagging from a resource intensive process then went to drive detection for maybe seconds then booted into Windows I let it settle down then rebooted again This time everything went as expected aside from it sitting at the drive detection for longer than normal about seconds again I'm just curious if there's something the driver update could do to the system that would cause something like this Any thoughts on the matter would be greatly appreciated

A:Could a video driver update cause boot issues?

My guess; which is the biggest mistake anyone can make, is not letting the process finish and then being impatient by forcing a restart. This restart before the reboot finished is what caused the issue you experienced.

My dell desktop came with WIN XP home edition. I formatted the hard drive and installed XP PRO on it. The desktop came with a 256 MB Radeon video card. After I re-installed, I see waving on my screen. I am assuming that is because of improper drivers. I think it is currently using VgaSave. How could I update the drivers? I wasted many hours on this and still cant figure it out....

A:Xp Reinstall - Unable To Update Video Driver

Try going to Device manager (rightclick on my computer, properties, hardware, device manager)and have a look and see if there are any highlighted. If there is it means that your pc is not recognising it. Expand the selection, right click on the highlighted device choose properties, driver tab and update driver then follow the instructions on screen.
The other option is to uninstall the device and use the add new hardware option which will search for and install your video card again.

Hope this helps, this is how i have solved similar problems.

Safe mode shouldn't be affected by nVidia driver.
It doesn't load in safe mode. Windows loads its own generic driver instead.

My laptop will no longer boot into Windows. it goes into a black screen after the Windows logo appears. The laptop has no problems opening Windows in Safe Mode, however. From another posting on this site, it appears that the problem is with the video driver. I currently have a NVideo GeForce 560m. While being in Safe Mode Network, I downloaded the latest driver for the NVideo, however I get this error message when trying to install it: 'Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable packages for Visual Studio cannot be installed in safe mode.'
Any thoughts how I might get the video screen working again? I've tried a system restore. Afterwards Windows did load normally for three seconds then I got a blue screen crash, and then it hasn't opened normally again.


A:Can't update video driver in safe mood

I found a site which detailed how to delete a bogus driver: How to Delete a Bogus Driver With a Blue Screen of Death | eHow I then deleted the video driver file as described and rebooted. However although Windows initially opened fine, within ten minutes the screen flashed off and on again, and Windows reported the video driver kernel had just recovered from a serious error. I tried to open Notepad and an email program but all that showed was a square with blackness inside. And then the screen flashed off, on and various other strange things. So I rebooted and then installed the latest NVideo driver I'd downloaded from the NVideo site. As I was now in Windows proper and not just safe mode, the vid driver installed okay.

I wasn't asked to reboot, and everything seemed to be working ok. But when tried to play a YT vid the sound continued on while the screen faded to black after 3 minutes.

Still feeling optimistic, I did a reboot. After 20 minutes all was still OK.

Hello all,
Computer info-
ASUS EEE PC N450 Intel GMA 3150
1 Gb original Ram
Win 7 Starter OEM
One yr old, not physical damage

What happens-
When attempting to update, BSOD on restart, update fails, goes into startup repair loop
What works-
Boot to safe mode, uninstall Intel GMA 3150 driver (the latest from ASUS)
Restart, continue installing updates in Standard VGA mode, updates complete successfully

Once you reinstall the Vid driver- no problem UNTIL more Windows Updates- then same failure.

One more thing, Windows Update has a Win included update for this driver- has the same ill effect.

I am installing so many updates because wrestled with this problem for some time, until a full reformat was done, to no avail.

So what do I do, stick with 800 x 600 resoultion, or turn off Windows updates?!!!

A:Windows update + Video Driver= BSOD

I just successfully installed more updates that failed simply by turning the resolution to 800 x 600, without uninstalling the driver.

What is it about 1024 x 600 that causes a problem?

So this all started a year ago, after a video driver update from Windows Update. Since then, whenever Vista enters/exits a full-screen operation, it shifts out of Aero (resulting in a black screen for 5 seconds, most noticeable with calling UAC).
I've been trying to rollback or get a better update for the driver ever since (especially because Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor says the driver needs to be updated), but have had no success.
A couple months ago I tried installing a video driver with a modded INF. As a result, problem still not fixed, and screen orientation functionality disabled.
Since then, trying to update the video driver (from HP, HP Recovery, and Windows Update) results in a BSOD half-way through (stop 0x7F,(0x0,0x0,0x0,0x0)). Then Windows fails to start, and executes Recovery Manager, which repairs and succeeds.
Obviously, if I didn't try to update the driver this wouldn't happen, but I'd like this to be somewhat resolved when 7 comes. Does anyone have any ideas that could help?


do you happen to have some of the dump files from the BSOD's? they are usually located in c:\windows\minidump, can you zip them (*.dmp) and upload it to us using the attachment icon (its shaped like a paperclip) in the reply form

win 7 is already out and does have a better handle on drivers, especially in 32bit.

Driver updates are over-rated, unless they specifically target your situation, better to stay with what is working fine.

I would hit up for old drivers and nvidia driver clearing utilities, try one until it works, that's obviously what the problem is....

Been there done that..... if it ain't broke don't fix it....

any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated

A:Help, No booting after update and rollback of video card driver

Depending on your System during the Boot Up process press F8 (Sometimes F5) to go into Safe Mode and delete those drivers from there.

Then Reboot.

Your Pc will come up with Windows Default Drivers (Crappy Display)

Then Install the new drivers and Reboot.
Go to your Video Cards website and download the drivers you want and do a Clean Install.

A:Video Card Driver Update Caused Problem

Try going into device manager (rt click computer then properties, then hardware or device manager depending on your OS), rt click your display adapter, then properties, click on drivers tab and select 'roll back driver'.
If this fixes your problem you will know it was the driver update that screwed it up, otherwise it may be your card that has become faulty.

Problem is, there is one file in the driver list, and it is in [C:/WINDOWS/system32/drivers] and its dated clear back to sunday october 22, 2006 The file name is Nv4_mini. i can't seem to update my nvidia card to the newest version either. even though everything installs correctly... it says driver version 6.14 rather than the much later 94.24. i have uninstalled the driver through add/remove programs, and re-installed without anti-virus on. I have done that about 50 times. I have checked my computer for any old files or file folders that might have not been un-installed, and they are all current except for that pesky Nv4_mini file. Im not even sure if that is why the driver version is not updating from 6.14 to 94.24. but i just can't take this anymore.

I went to System Restore and picked a restore point before the driver update. However after initializing, the system crashed and I got a BSOD. I tried several other restore points but they all crashed and led to the BSOD.

And I haven't noticed anything really odd with Windows except when I run CCleaner it says MS search instead of thumbnails. But how do I ensure next time I restore Windows it be interrupted by Grub should I try a third party system restore app maybe Duplicati?

I tried to update my older Radeon ATI 5450 GPU via windows update...

I received the message from windows update, and showed it failed update with the 0x800706be

However when I go to device manager and check the details of the installed driver it clearly shows the new updated version? So I wonder which is correct the device manager showing the new version of the driver or windows update?

A:Failed Update 0x800706be driver...but device mgr shows updated driver?

You can identify the problem using Device Manager, which you can access by:
Opening the Control Panel Window
Selecting and double-clicking System
Clicking Device Manager
In Device Manager check if there is an exclamation point, a yellow triangle, or a question mark against your Dell device. If there is, there is a problem with your Dell device.

Media Used: DVD disk and video movie download (

Issue: Video Display has slow update and loses frames on both DVDs and Video Movie downloaded files.

[1] The computer has always had this problem; this is not a new issue.

[2] I have tried adjusting the Display settings provide by XP with no measurable improvement.

[3] Sound is not affected and has good quality.

[4] When MS-Media Player is used and is minimized to the task bar (mini screen presentation) the Video Display quality improves, but is not acceptable.

[5] Only about half of Video Movie can be viewed. Image freezes and play button is enabled. When play is clicked, the Video Movie restarts from the beginning.

Does anyone have a suggestion, I am out of ideas.

A:Video Display has slow update and loses frames on both DVDs and Video Movie downloade

Wow, it just might be the ancient processor you have and the very small amount of Ram you have. Video really eats up resources and I think you dont have the power to run it without problems, The key here is that when you minimize your preview window in Media Player, you have less problems.

I have experiencing problem with my Dell XPS 15z laptop. The video is choppy and sometimes display driver stops working. I am not even able to update windows and update fails during configuration. I did a dell PC diagnostics for any hardware issues but found none.

When I shutdown the PC I get an error programs need to be closed with an option of "Force ShutDown" but in the list of programs I don't see any programs. I have Kaspersky antivirus installed. Could it be a virus ?

Try uninstalling the video driver via Device Manager...then rebooting and reinstalling same.

I recently set up a new Dell 7710 Precision Workstation (Xeon E3-1535M v5 w/Intel HD Graphics P530; Nvidia Quadro M5000M; Windows 7 Pro). The Dell Precision Optimizer (DPPO) tells me there are no updates at all (no Critical, Recommended, or Optional). However, the Intel Driver Update Utility tells me I have an older chipset ( that should be replaced by a newer chipset (10.0.27). I don't know if the DPPO is taking into account particular aspects of this system that make the the “correct” (even if not the latest) chipset. Perhaps the DPPO should override the Intel utility. Any thoughts?

I am receiving random BSODs with the subject line description.  My first stop was to the HP Support site to possibly update any drivers (like bios??).  I found many driver updates available, including 2 for the bios.  I really have no clue as to which driver updates to install, even after reading the details.  I looked for where it says recommended or required or something but didn't see it.  I then installed the HP Support Solutions and did a scan to determine what drivers it thought I needed and it came up with none.  Now I'm real confused.  Does that mean all the driver updates on the HP site are just optional?  Can someone provide a good site link to read about how to determine which drivers are needed?  Thank you for your help!

A:GeForce FX go 5600 driver automatic update to wrong driver?

With an old laptop like that, I'd suggest going to the manufacturers site and download their latest driver for that unit first. It may be dated but that's OK. You'll know that that driver is supposed to work, and you can continue on from there. Uninstall the old drivers from the add remove programs app. Then uninstall the GPU from device manager. Run a program like Guru3D - Driver Sweeper to clean up any orphaned files before installing the new drivers. If there is a better more nVidia specific program for cleaning the drivers hopefully one of the regulars here will post a link to it. That utility works on both nVidia and ATI drivers. If the downloaded drivers work you can let it go or start slowly upgrading to newer drivers till you find one you are happy with. There's not really any way to lock a driver. You might be looking at a dying GPU also so keep that in mind.

One other thing. When you reboot after uninstalling the device and drivers and reboot, keep closing the little "found new hardware" balloons in the lower right corner till you get a message "there was a problem loading drivers for this device". That stops the OS from installing generic drivers.

I'm a little confused by one of my update options. I was under the impression that windows 7 was using wddm 1.1, and that the wddm 1.0 drivers have been available for quite some time. I checked and the driver I have is wddm 1.0, released 10/28/2008, version number So why am I being given the option to update to 'pre-release wddm 1.0'? I tried to get more information to check the version number, but I am just redirected to Winqual Help , which doesn't help me any.

I'd like to test out the wddm 1.1 drivers, and I've read that they're available for 7, but I don't think that these are those drivers, unless there is a typo in the driver title.

yes thats right....

wddm is just a driver model...
its up to the manufacture (here intel) to release wddm 1.1 driver
so until then (most likely they wont) they have to release a wddm 1.1

Windows Display Driver Model - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
that should be a good read....

what they mean pre-release means that these drivers are beta drivers (there is a difference between pre-release drivers and pre-release wddm 1.1 drivers)

I, again, apologize for double posting. I figure I should include the host of other issues I'm having. Maybe they can all be inter related.

-my DVD/RW drive, when connected to mother board in ANY SATA slot, causes the BIOS screen to freeze forever. I have disconnected the drive at this time while trouble shooting. I have tried known-good SATA cables so I know it's either the DVD/RW drive or perhaps a driver or mobo failure.

-I have run the memory diagnostic tool in windows. No issues were reported.

-I have NOT run memtest86 because I do not have a disk drive connected.

-I have had stop-errors (BSODS) such as PFN_list_corrupt, System_service_Exception, Memory_management, IRQ_not_less_or_Equal
All of these could be a result of bad RAM.

I have purchased new RAM as a means to fix my problems. It seemed to work for 2 weeks, then the stop errors returned.

Windows Update is not telling me I need or can update my Wireless networking, but Intel's Update Driver Utility says I should and is offering the update. How would you recommend I proceed?

A:Should I trust Intel's Driver Update utility or Windows Update?

G'day Rolo,

The difference between the two drivers is that the Windows one is digital signed/tested by Microsoft. I would say that unless the Intel one delivers more benefit than the Windows one, and everything works as expected, then there is no need to update.

You often see this with graphics card drivers too, for example.

HP Envy 17 3D (M0del: LV045UA#ABA) with Radeon 6850M and Mobile Intel HD Graphics.

On 9/3/11 the Microsoft update site provided a 150+ MB update for the video system. After the update downloaded and began to install, the video system crashed (the screen went blank) and did not recover after more than an hour.

I then performed a system image restore from a backup external hard drive. I tried again to install the update and again the video system crashed.

Anyone else experience similar problems with this update?

A:Update From Microsoft Update Site Crashes Video System

LMC, welcome to the Seven Forums.

What happened is your laptop has switchable graphics and will only work properly with the driver from the laptop manufacturer, in your case HP (or any other laptop with switchable graphics). Problem is that WU is essential stupid in that it doesn't know that and only sees one or the other of the video cards in the laptop, and as a result offers and installs one that won't work with it.

In this case stop trying to install it as it will never work. Just hide the update in WU so you don't see it and only ever install a video card driver update from HP.

A:Can A Printer Firmware Update And/or Driver Update Be Reversed?

You can go to Device Manager and find the printer and in properties it gives you the option to "roll back" the driver to a previous version. A firmware update and driver update mean 2 different things, to me anyways. My understanding is a firmware update offers "improved" instructions to the onboard chip of the device. What does HP say about the problem?

A:Can't hide NVIDIA driver update in Windows Update

I'm cautiously optimistic I found a reasonable workaround (requires the Pro edition of Windows), by using AppLocker to disallow executables signed by Nvidia to run. This way I can leave the Windows Update service enabled and don't need to constantly fight the Nvidia driver updates that I supposedly "hid" using the wushowhide troubleshooter. For anyone else in this or a similar predicament:

Right-click the Start button and click Run, or use the + R keyboard shortcut to open the Run command dialog.

In the Open text box, type gpedit and click OK.

Expand Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Application Control Policies > AppLocker > Executable Rules. Right-click in the pane on the right and click Create New Rule... In my case, I created a Publisher rule with action Deny for Everyone, and used an Nvidia driver installer file as the reference file to capture the Publisher information.

Create exceptions as necessary. Since I want the older (already installed) Nvidia driver of my choice to function, I created a wildcard Path exception for the Nvidia Program Files folder.

Hope this is helpful...

Relevancy 41.28%

I'm working with a Dell Dimension C521 PC. It came with a PCI-Express video card which apparently has failed, yet the motherboard itself has on-board video. The system will boot using this video output (as opposed to the card which produced nothing) but when it finally gets to windows the auto-detect driver routine kicks in and begins to detect the video card, prompting the user to "Continue Anyway" to finish installing unsigned drivers. Unfortunately this event takes place in front of the installation of the USB keyboard and mouse (times like these I wish it had PS/2 ). Anyway, whether I boot up into Safe Mode or normal a prompt comes up about installing drivers for the on-board chipset. I can't interact with it because the driver install routine for the keyboard/mouse becomes interrupted.

A:Dell Dimension C521; USB key/mouse driver load interrupted by video card driver load

Bump. I've been thinking... the only way I think this can be fixed is if I boot from a Linux CD or something similar and delete a particular set of drivers for this video card. It can't prompt you to install any drivers if they don't exist, right? But I don't know where to go to delete such files and prevent them from automatically trying to install themselves. Any ideas?
