Preferred Solution: AMD, Nvidia and Intel release new GPU drivers for Windows 10

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.)

I was wondering where nvidia's pre release driver gets stored on the computer so that I don't have to re-download every time!

I want to copy them to my Setups folder, so that I can re use them.

I tried C:\Windows\Software Distribution but it was not there!

Also, why do I get a WDDM v1.0 driver and not a v1.1?

Waiting for replies!


A:Where to find nvidia's Pre release drivers on computer?

Well for the most part device drivers are installed into the "C:\Windows\system32" and "C:\Windows\system32\drivers" sub folders by an installer. Each update you download will see it's own number where you can store those away in a separate folder by simply downloading to that directly.

Prereased drivers are also referred to as "beta" drivers with the advice of "use at own risk"! They are not the driver sets you would see the Windows update site locate and install for you there.

The v1.0 driver is obviously the latest "out of beta" driver available for general use. The v1.1 being in beta form is one you have to go to NVidia directly for. For the present time you should stay with the v1.0 until the v1.1 is out of beta and available at the normail download site. Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

I have recently got a new laptop with a GeForce GT 520M, and for some reason my DxDiag doesnt seem to register the fact that it's there, as you can see below.

I have got the nVidia Drivers installed as well as Intel HD Graphics installed.

I'm worried that this is affecting my laptops performance.

Please help!

XPS 14.  About 3 years old.  Ran the Intel Driver Update utility which told me there was a new driver for the Intel HD 4000.  But it goes to great length warning me that Dell has thier own preferred version and I should use that 3 year old version.  Nvidia wants me to update the Geforce GT 630M.  
Is that just overkill warning?  I know I could always roll back but the warnings sound so serious ;^)

This may sound a stupid question but can these two clash??

After a fresh reinstall windows installed the Intel graphics accelerators then i installed my nvidia drivers for my Gforce 9400gt(not the best)
my monitor kept turning off on its own

Ive run dozens of tests and everything is reported as working properly
i uninstalled the intel drivers but the igfxsvc module was stilll running
even when i ended the process it would run again and it didnt appear in services
this is part of Intel and nothing to do with my nvidia drivers

I was wondering if a clash may of been causing the issue??
sorry if its a dumb question

I did a fresh install of windows 7 on my laptop. I then got a DELL engineer from the software team to do a drivers install.
But the screen on full resolution has problems. When I turn on the laptop and log in the screen gets all weird and flickers and shows grey lines and it?s very hard to use.
To resolve this I press the sleep button and then turn it back on.
I have intel 3000 graphics and nvidia graphics driver 332.21

Any help would be much appreciated

A:Intel HD Graphics + NVIDIA Geforce [Drivers & Usage problems]

1. Main reason the Intel reference driver won't work is it hasn't been modified to work with the second card (applies to laptops with either Nvidia or AMD for the second card). Same applies to the Nvidia driver, it requires the Intel driver to be installed before it can be installed.

2. From what I have seen the Nvidia card (or AMD if so equipped) can be made to run all the time only when the laptop is plugged in and you change the power settings to high performance. If that doesn't get it working all the time here may be another setting that needs to be changed. If that is the case going to have to wait on someone with a similar setup for more info.

Hi there I am a sound engineer I own a device called Focusrite Liquidmix which worked fine 8 Legacy Windows (release preview) drivers in Windows bit BUT only if it was installed in a firewire device which had LEGACY drivers Something that you could easilly do in win with manual choice of the legacy Windows 8 (release preview) Legacy drivers drivers for the specific firewire card in device manager In windows the option is gone No legacy drivers alternative What I did is use the win legacy drivers and I manually choose them but it didn't let Windows 8 (release preview) Legacy drivers me install them unsigned drivers What I did next was some cmd commands with test signing and stuff known commands to disable this thing which also hasn't worked Final stop was to do the windows restart in advance settings option where you can choose with F to disable signed drivers check This finally worked The problem is that EVERY time I restart the driver again doesn't work and has a yellow signal in device manager So I have to restart again in advanced settings start with F and it works once again So everytime I need to work on songs with this device which needs legacy drivers I have to do time consuming restarts Any thoughts on how can I permanently have drivers signed check disabled in Windows Thanks in advance This thing with legacy drivers mode is a problem for many many devices and people

A:Windows 8 (release preview) Legacy drivers

I understand that issue clearly because I encountered it before.

It depends how old the device is and if it still has support then the manufacturers need to make new signed versions for win8.
Some drivers were hard to find or not available at all.
Some time ago someone told me to look for drivers on and search the device name or the hardware ID's found in the detail section of the driver (device manager). Works with most of devices.

If you're lucky enough, you can find some signed drivers there.
Besides this link, there's the manufacturer's website but you're not finding much for Win8 or new OSes in general if the hardware is older.

Good luck

everytime I install my amd sb750 chipset drivers, windows won't boot up and it was attempt to repair after restarting. Only way I can get back is to "refresh my pc". I have a dfi LP JR 790gx-m2rs board and it sucks not being about to install my chipset drivers. Anybody else have a sb750 chipset board and getting errors? It worked fine on the consumer preview.

I have the same board and situation is even worse. I can't even complete setup as it just BSOD's after selecting the drive when the SATA controller is set to RAID mode. I can install in ACHI mode but I need ACHI RAID (for other complicated reasons). I tried using txtsetup.oem files but it just says no device drivers found.

Another update... I was ready to give up as others have above when I found posts on the NotebookReviews forum mentioning this new Intel Driver:
It won't install through the executable, but if you follow the instructions here for a manual install:  they do work.  Incidentally that link is regarding the exact same flickering problem on the MS Surface Book Pro(very similar hardware).  I'm 3 days in to using these drivers and it appears to have resolved the problem.  This is the longest I've gone without flickering by a long shot.
Note on the Intel download site the first of the "Key Issues Fixed"...  "Display may flicker on 6th Generation Intel Core and related processors".
I also updated to the latest WiFi drivers from Dell's site at the same time, so I can't be 100% certain my issues were fixed by just the display drivers, or if it was the combination of the two.

Hmm that didn't happen to me when I put mines in. Did you install the NVIDIA drivers? Try disabling the onboard in the device manager. That?s what I did. There doesn?t seem to be an option to turn it off in the bios (my bios) maybe there is for you however. It isn?t too complicated. Just simply look for onboard graphics or integrated graphics controller or w/e and select disable, but first try disabling it in the device manager. It should be listed under display adapters -> properties -> disable this device.

You should upgrade to DX9.0c...

hi guys just been looking at getting a new motherboard. and there was a link to these new motherboards coming this year !! they look sweet look for yourself.

After visiting most of the major motherboard manufacturers while exploring the Computex trade show, we thought it would be interesting to put together a photo gallery of all the LGA2011 motherboards we've seen.

What's interesting is just how many LGA2011 motherboards are on display at the show, despite the fact that the CPUs are not due to be released until much later this year.

Hello Friends, I noticed that another IRST Driver (Intel Rapid Storage Technology) for Win10 64bit rev (ID # nz1io01w), was released on 2016-AUG-15. This does not make sense consdering that the numerically higher rev (ID # n1ei202w) was released on 2016-APR-14. It seems like the version numbers are going backwards! 2016-AUG-15 = (nz1io01w)2016-APR-14 = (n1ei202w)  Older version is released after a newer version?

Welcome to the EightForums! liviococcia

Once the finished retail product is available when launched you would need to perform a clean install as with any previous version of Windows. The backup tools however may allow you to preserve and restore user files and settings without too much problem.

The final details in the "pudding" so to speak will be known once the RTM(Release To Manufacturers) is seen. Clean installs are always the preferred option over upgrading over a previous version which can often carry some problems along with the upgrade.

With the Windows Easy Transfer option with 7 once all programs were back on a clean install the restoration of the backup made with that option was found to restore the files and settings with 7. I expect the same should be seen with 8 as well.

I just bought a 9800GT and clean reinstall of Windows 7 and the problem is that the drivers don't detect any lower resolutions below 800x600 and doesn't detect that my CRT old monitor supports a refresh rate of 120.

I usually play video games at 800x600 @ 100hz refresh rate making it very smooth, but now I'm forced to use 85hz with the largest capable resolution being 1070 by XXXXX, can't remember :P.

I've updated windows, installed the latest drivers (197.13), reinstalled the drivers and tried creating a custom resolution via Nvidia drivers and other software without success. Another problem is that saturation and hue aren't working. I'm quite frustrated by this playing in black and white and laggy gameplay, I desperately need some help :(

Thanks in advance to who ever posts on this thread :)

A:Windows 7 Nvidia Drivers

Update: I just relised that the driver version 197.13 I'm using was released yesterday and is WHQL and from what I've read is still currently being tested? And may include some bugs. I rolled back to 196.34 and the same result except saturation and hue work! I'm not certain if the uninstall of the newer driver was completely successful. I tried looking updating my monitor drivers but they are already updated.

I have several problems with windows xp.

First, sometimes the system will hang for a while - the mouse works, but when I click nothing happens for maybe a minute, then it 'catches up' (everything I clicked a minute ago responds like it should, all it once).

Second, I get a BSOD very frequently (when playing GTA1, most of the time, usually starting a game or switching resolutions). It mentions nv4_disp.dll, so should I get a different version of the drivers? I've heard of people having problems with nvidia and windows xp. Is there a specific driver version that you recommend? I've heard the latest versions aren't always the best.

I have windows xp professional running on a 1.7ghz p4 with 512 mb ram. It is a dell laptop.

With the latest Nvidia drivers on windows update there are some problems

1) Change Flat Panel Scaling does not work correctly in display , if i click anything other than ( use my displays built in panel scaling ) it defaults back to it. Select Nvidia scaling and it goes back to default ^. This works fine with 185.20 -> 181.20 -> ****

2) Adjust Video Colour settings does nothing with media player classic even when selected to ( with the nvidia settings ). This works fine with all other latest beta nvidia drivers -

3) Doom 3 Flickers BADLY with any official/beta nvidia driver in use ( 185.20 e.t.c ) , this is not fixed by any form of Config editing or control panel changing. Thus far only the windows 7 update driver works with doom 3 , however its an old driver and as above scaling isn't working. SyncMaster T240 HDMI/VGA/DVI/USB 24

Hi there,
On windows update I have an update available for NVIDIA driver update for NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M. Each time I try to install it, it failed.

Through NVDIA control panel, it appeared that I have already the last driver version installed.

As a Windows Insider for windowss 10, I had it preinstalled and running since then and I would like to know whether it is a bug or whatever?

The official released date for Windows 10, was on th 29th of july 2015. Do I need to upgrade it again?



A:Windows 10 pb with NVIDIA drivers

Not sure if this will help, but since I run Win10 in a VM, I had to set my video drivers to "basic" drivers, reboot, and then I was able to upgrade to Win10 (from 8.1). After that, I was able to update my video drivers (built by VMWare) with no issues. You may need to do the same (or something similar) for your NVidia drivers.

So I've upgraded my laptop from vista 32-bit to windows 7 32-bit. For somereason, no matter what version of nvidia laptop drivers i try, once it goes to reboot, the computer will hang after the 'windows loading' screen and never reach the login screen. From there i'm brought to the startup repair, which doesn't do anything. However, when the drivers are removed, my computer boots fine using the windows standard vga graphics driver. Any suggestions?

A:Windows refusing to use nvidia drivers?

Welcome to SF
Which versions of the drivers have you tried?
Where did you get them from?
I've just had a quick look and the most up-to-date is here;

With the driver installed after rebooting, enter the advanced boot options (F8, F12 or similar) and choose Disable Driver Signature Enforcement
See how that goes.

Can i force the windows in the installation options while installing to install the version 347.88 ? If not can i force windows not to install the video card drivers at all so i can install it later ?

And after installing 347.88 can i set somewhere in the windows that it will not try to install in the future the latest video drivers version and only will alert if there is a new version ?

A:How can i install windows 8 without the nvidia drivers ?

windows 8.1 setup media will not install the newest drivers - windows update will - once you get online..

during installation - do not connect to your router (internet) - thus preventing the driver download..

install your 347 driver - connect to the internet and install the updates (this will update all your drivers)
after all the updates are completed. going through device manager Roll back the video driver to 347

if that does not work un-install the 350 driver through device manager and it should roll back to 347

Actually you will have both driver versions on your PC but you will have to tell device manager to roll back to the older version..

you could also block automatic driver updates > control panel > system > advanced system properties > Hardware > device installation settings

Hello,I Have Problem With Nvidia Drivers on Windows 8 Pro When I Reboot Its Only Black Screen.
Any Help?,
Motherboard is Asus M2N-MX

You have a very old MB and the latest BIOS on their website is dated back in 2008, Drivers are for Vista and will work with Windows 7 but I doubt if it will be completely compatible with Windows 8.

You could try to download the Video driver for Windows 8 and re-install it to see if it helps.

Hi, I recently installed windows 8 release preview on a dell inspiron b130 and everything works fine, except when I press windows + p or go to screen resolutions to hookup my tv. It says to reinstall or check my video card driver. This driver ( for intel mobile (r) 910/915 express chipset series) has not been update since 07, and I can't find any downloads for windows 8 online. Please help me get an updated driver or a workaround to get my monitor projecting onto my tv.

A:Intel mobile (r) 910/915 drivers for windows 8

I don't know whether it'll be possible.

The latest drivers from Intel for those graphics are for XP (XDDM). Windows 7 could use XDDM drivers, but without Aero Glass support. Win8 requires WDDM drivers (1.0 is Vista, 1.1 Win7, 1.2 Win8). They don't exist for those graphics. They probably will never exist.

Unless there's some way to get the generic VGA drivers to give you the features you need, you may be out of luck.

One of the drawbacks to the Release Preview is that it doesn't include the compatibility check that you get with the Upgrade Assistant from the RTM (final) version. I suggest that you download and run that. Bad news is expected.

Alright, here's the deal.
? Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit, with SP2 RC.
? nVidia Gforce 9600 GT

Never had problems updating the drivers to their latest versions (downloaded from until I de-installed Spybot (that crappy anti-spyware thing).

After that, everytime I try to install (after a deinstallation) or update the current drivers nothing happens. Install runs fine, copies files, reboots and voila... same drivers as before.

The only drivers that actually I was able to install were the 178.13 via the internal Windows Update. That's it. If I don't install them, the VGA card is shown as "vgasave" in the Device Manager.

I'm quite fed up with this and planning to reinstall Vista, but backuping everything up is going to be a real hassle, that's why I'm trying to find out a possible solution to this beforehand.

Any suggestions?.
Thanks in advance!

Windows 8.1 RTM added 10GB of Nvidia files to DriverStore.

My Windows 8.1 Pro x64 RTM clean install used about 16 to 17 GB of disk space. After installing Nvidia GeForce 326.01 drivers via Windows Update, the disk usage went up 10 GB!

Checking the contents of C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository folder found 37 nv* folders (totaling 10GB) containing Nvidia drivers, all with a creation date similar to date & time of Nvidia GeForce 326.01 driver installation through Windows Update. Probably explains why the Windows Update progress bar lingered at 0% for several minutes when the Nvidia drivers were being installed.

This didn't happen on the same computer with Nvidia GeForce drivers installation via Windows Update on Windows 8 Pro x64 RTM.

I noticed a similar inquiry posted on the Microsoft Community forums but no significant replies.

Has anyone experienced this? I'm inclined to just delete the folders.

I am currently running a GeForce 9500 GT on vista and have tried upgrading to Windows 7 release candidate 1 from Vista. The problem is, Windows 7 doesn't like the Nvidia drivers I have on my system. So I uninstalled them. Completely. Restarted. Tried the upgrade again, and boom! Still can't upgrade because Nvidia drivers / nview desktop manager (yes, that is what it says).

I have literally restarted my computer 20 times, uninstalling, reinstalling and whateverinstalling. I have no idea what to do in order to upgrade to windows 7. The drivers or my actual hardware is not letting me upgrade.

Has anyone had this problem?

Hi guys!

Ive been looking around on the internet to see which drivers work best with Windows 7 and it seems like 185.85 seems to be the best. But i was wondering as the post i found was from 2009, is there any of the new drivers working better with windows 7? I did see that 314.22 worked for some.

Anyway thanks for the help,


A:Latest Nvidia 9800GT Drivers that work with Windows 7?

My missus has a 9800GT and it runs everything as good as could be with 314.22 drivers. Even with my GTX 560 i run the same driver's. No point in going with the latest unless there is some fix for certain games and your model of card. This is really all they bring new drivers out for fixing game bugs and making newer cards more compatible.

Did you disable the on-board 8300 drivers in BIOS? It may be conflicting with the 9600. Otherwise roll back to a previous driver with system restore or device manager or install the newest drivers from nvidia here:

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 FX-62 (Dual Core, 2.8 Ghz)

I have a Shuttle PC, and am running the latest BIOS, not sure the version number, but I just flashed it several days ago when still on XP.

Okay, here goes. I just installed a clean copy of Windows 7 x64 Pro over Windows XP. It was a major pain, I kept getting a blue screen error when setup was 'Completing'. It was a STOP error for file nvlddmkm.sys, which after some research, I believe it to be a Nvidia file. I could not get Win7 to install.

Finally, after HOURS of research, I finally got it to work by deleting the nvlddmkm.sys files during the 'Expanding Windows Files' step. This was done via Command Prompt (Shift F10). I believe I found the steps for this process here.

Continuing, I'm finally booted into Windows, and I'm assuming that I am running the basic Windows VGA Drivers. I ran Windows Update and attempted to install the drivers for my 7950 GX2, reboot, 'Windows is Starting', BSOD. Boot into Safe Mode, uninstall drivers, install drivers from Nvidia, reboot, BSOD.

It seems that no matter what set of drivers I install, after I reboot, the computer will say 'Starting Windows' and then will get the BSOD. The code is 116, and the associated file is nvlddmkm.sys.

I know that during the install process that I deleted the nvlddmkm.sys file from two locations. I believe one was in the system32 folder, can't remember the other location. Currently, this file is not located in the drivers folder (C:\Windows\System32\Drivers).

Can you guys please help me in getting my graphics card drivers installed? No matter what I do, I get a BSOD after a reboot and BEFORE Windows loads. I have tried several versions of the driver but to no avail. I believe I might need to copy the nvlddmkm.sys file to somewhere. I do have a nvlddmkm.sy_ file that is packaged with all the drivers, but I believe it needs to be expanded?

Thanks for the help guys!

You may have to do either a repair install or fi you have a backup you can restore that might work

A:Latest NVIDIA GeForce Graphics Drivers for Windows 8

Currently experiencing some sporadic problems with this driver. Basically, I get pink/purple artifacts across the screen and then the system locks up. Sometimes it is able to recover, but sometimes it automatically reboots. It's not the card, as it is working perfectly in the other OSes with the latest appropriate drivers.

Been checking the NVidia forums about this, and I'm not the only one with this problem: Windows 8 Graphic Glitch - NVIDIA Forums and Windows 8 Consumer Preview Geforce Desktop/Notebook Driver Information - NVIDIA Forums - Page 6 describes the symptoms I'm getting perfectly.

It should be pointed out though that issues were present with the graphics drivers with the Beta versions of Windows 7 as well (not necessarily the same issues, but issues nonetheless). Hopefully, these will be ironed out over time.

A:Windows freeze at start after installation of new nvidia drivers

Welcome to Seven Forums. Obviously the new driver isn't playing nice with your card.
If you can boot into safe mode I would suggest to, and then remove the new driver>reboot and re-install the older driver.

You might even want to try different drivers and possibly find one that works best with your card. heres an older one you might want to try

It has been suggested to use a program like Driver Sweeper after you un-install the old driver to remove any remnants of the driver you have just un-installed before installing a new one.

Sometimes they make changes in the new drivers that don't seem to work well with certain video cards. Especialy older ones or medium cards. Their focus is more on the newer GTX series cards, and sometimes can creste unforscene problems with other series cards
I would have to compare the release notes on the new driver to even try and guess at what might be causing the issue. You just never know.
It's kinds like back to the old saying if it ain't broke don't fix it.

I realize you were probably hoping for some increase in performance with the new driver only to find out for some reason it's causing you problems.
Sorry but that's about all I can think of.

I would also like to add that whenever I download a new driver or app I like to create a restore point.
That way once I have removed the driver/app I can easily restore my system to it's previous state.
Maybe someone else might have a better explanation for you, so we'll see.Fabe

Sorry if this is off-topic, but I have been using Wagnard's DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) for years now to do actual 'clean' installs of the Nvidia drivers each and every update and life has been much happier. Great especially if a new release screws up and you want to cleanly go back to the previous driver. Much more thorough than picking 'clean' install from the nvidia installer tool, and safer than letting than letting some generalized registry cleaner at your registry.

It was the goto solution for the many people who could not get Fallout 4 running on release day. It won't work in every single case, of course, but nothing is guaranteed.

If you want to check it out (it's free and highly regarded by gamers) he posts new builds in his forum at: Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) Download & Support - Wagnardmobile Forum

You'll also find it on various download sites but I get mine direct from his forum for safety.

Here's his description of what DDU is and does:

"What is Display Driver Uninstaller?
Display Driver Uninstaller is a driver removal utility that can help you completely remove AMD/NVIDIA/Intel graphics card drivers and packages from your system, without leaving leftovers behind (including registry keys, folders and files, and the driver store).

The AMD/NVIDIA/Intel video drivers can normally be uninstalled from the Windows Control panel, this driver uninstaller program was designed to be used in cases where the standard driver uninstall fails, or whenever you need to thoroughly delete Intel, nVidia or ATI/AMD video card drivers.

The current effect after you use this driver removal will be similar as if its the first time you install a new driver just like a fresh, clean install of Windows. As with any tool of this kind, we recommend creating a new system restore point before using it, so that you can revert your system at any time if you run into problems.
This tool acts similar to what other driver cleaner programs do + the extra mentioned above.
If you have problem installing older driver or newer one, give it a try as there are some reports that it fixes those problems.

It is important to do a system restore point before as with any tool like this one, it is better be on the safe side and have a backup."

source: What is DDU? - Wagnardmobile Forum

A good case in point is a fresh Windows install which now installs an out of date and generalized Nvidia driver. I let all my updates finish, then I run DDU and it drops me to safe mode where it removes all trace of the installed driver, restarts and I am free and clear to cleanly install the newest driver with the options I choose (goodbye 3d stuff I don't use, goodbye Nvidia Experience)

I may screw everything else up, but I never have video driver issues =)

External usb hdd occasionally fails to be regonized by system and doesn't work until I uplug it and plut it again.According to Intel's community they don't support this motherboard as it is shipped as OEM for laptop manufacturers, so I'm asking my question here. Is Lenovo Y400 model already obsolete and we won't get Windows 10 upgrade with drivers ugraded?

I`ve got an Nvidia 7600GT card which will be upgraded to a 7900GTO next week. Do I have to remove the existing Nvidia drivers before installing?

I have a Geforce 8200 installed in my computer but everytime i try to update my drivers to the newest 8200 drivers. it installed Geforce 9200 drivers...
i call nvidia and they said that 9200 is the same as 8200 and the drivers will work flawless with my 8200...
well they are totally wrong. with the 9200 installed, my HDMI screen flickers all the time then if i had the 8200 drivers in....
but here is the catch...since i updated i can't remember that driver i had installed that worked...
whenever i got to the nvidia site to get a 8200 driver
they send me to the 9200 driver page.
just want to know where i can get reliable 8200 drivers and if anyone knows a good 8200 driver that was the best out of the batch of them
i know i have have high hopes
but got to ask somewhere.

If you go to the File Hippo site you will find lots of past version Nvidia drivers but you might be up against it if you can't remember the driver version you want. Trial and error maybe the only way to go.
If you do decide to try different versions I'd be using driver sweeper between installing.

A:NVIDIA display drivers deleted by Windows 10 update - how to prevent

The drivers that Windows 10 install are Nvidia drivers....they just aren't the absolute latest, since Nvidia updates often. On my tower, I don't see the same issues as you, but my solution is to run the Nvidia GeForce Experience tool. It will alert you to new driver versions and download them for you. There's no need or reason to spend hours arranging a desktop. If Windows Update is installing drivers, it means it found something newer than you had originally.

Hello all I have recently bought a new Windows system and startup hangs installing graphics 7 drivers Nvidia after on Windows am having a problem installing the graphics card drivers The store I bought it from pre-installed the OS and all the drivers and when I fired up the computer for the first time it got to the point just after the quot starting windows quot screen - the glowing windows logo desktop background appeared but the mouse pointer icons task bar start button etc did not appear and I could do nothing at that point other than turn off the computer So I restarted the computer booted in safe mode used system recovery to restore to a previous point and then I was able to start the computer properly Then using the process of elimination I figured out that the graphics card drivers were causing the hanging problem The card is an Nvidia GeForce MB The other specs for the computer are as follows Motherboard MSI H M-E OS Windows Home Premium -bit CPU Intel i Windows 7 hangs on startup after installing Nvidia graphics drivers GB RAM So how can I get around this problem with my graphics card drivers stopping Windows from starting properly I was trying to install the latest driver package available from Nvidia's website

A:Windows 7 hangs on startup after installing Nvidia graphics drivers

I had a similar problem: I downloaded the driver for my Nvidia GF 8200 M G graphics card from NVidia's website, and when I started the setup program, it told me that I didn't have required hardware or software.

To solve this problem, I suggest you to use a software called DriverMax (available from Download DriverMax and update your Windows Vista drivers, a short registration is needed after installing it) In the main window, click "Check for driver updates", and the results will be shown in your web browser. Find your graphics adapter, and download the driver for it. Your browser will attempt to download a file with a .dmx-info extension, that's only an information file, which contains, from where the driver needs to be acquired.

After adding the driver to the downlaod list, wait until it's downloaded. Then click Install drivers. After the procedure a system reboot will be required.

I hope it helped.

Diagnostic zip Report is attached I type this from my Windows bit system running the standard VGA driver I generally am pretty good with troubleshooting in the computer field but I have now spent over hours on this problem with very little luck and lots of frustration I'll try to provide as much information as possible The problem started nights ago when I was playing a somewhat-old computer game called Age of Empires The graphics are not overly intense - I nvlddmkm.sys drivers BSOD Start-up, nVidia with Windows proper on had not even maximized settings - but BSOD with proper nVidia drivers on Windows Start-up, nvlddmkm.sys nonetheless my screen began to flicker and I was confronted with a blue screen informing me that problem was BSOD with proper nVidia drivers on Windows Start-up, nvlddmkm.sys caused by a failure to read nvlddmkm sys the nVidia driver file I still have not figured out why my drivers suddenly crashed I run a pretty cool BSOD with proper nVidia drivers on Windows Start-up, nvlddmkm.sys system with no overclocking whatsoever I have not been able to run the drivers since so I was forced to go in to safe mode disable the drivers and boot up in normal with the standard VGA drivers So my question - how can I go about fixing this without completely reinstalling Windows I realize that by now I could have backed up my files reinstalled and copied everything over I've done that two times already in the last months and I'm really annoyed by the necessity of doing it What can I do to get my system to properly run the drivers again without reinstalling the operating system Information - Spacious desktop rig with plenty of cooling built by myself - Graphics card remains at a temperature hovering around degrees celsius - EVGA GeForce GTX TI GB -bit GDDR - Card is in perfect condition no visible damage on the exterior nor is it hot to the touch seconds after shutdown - I have never ran in to any errors with the card prior I've only had it for two months - I do not overclock - Motherboard Supermicro X SIA-F does contain onboard VGA - I am currently running this card rather than onboard VGA but with VGA drivers - I run RAID I never have experienced any problems with its status until I started to receive all of these blue screens now my second hard-drive is running in to issues giving the volume a quot degraded quot status when I first experienced the blue screen my volume's condition was fine as was it when I was first started troubleshooting This is something new that seems to accommodate my frequent blue screens This disables some extra functionality but it is still entirely operable - I am unable to perform a system restore due to the lack of recent saves - Yes I have researched this problem and tested the methods of others on various help forums including this very own What I have tried and what happened - Reinstall proper drivers to no avail - Completely wipe nVidia from my system then try a reinstall to no avail - Run a Windows Update to upgrade the drivers cannot update - Search for drivers in the Device Manager to no avail - Upgrade Windows literally right after everything finished I was told that my system is illegible for an upgrade though my system seemed ready according to their tool - Repair my drivers via System File Checker no faults found - Expand via cmd prompt the nvlddmkm file from the driver installation in to the actual driver manually to ensure that the file is up to date no change - Ensure that I am not running in Aero Mode apparently this is incompatible without the proper drivers did not work - Completely unplug my system to no avail - Talk very sternly to my system to no avail though I do question my sanity more than I should now Any ideas Any and all help is appreciated My freetime has been swallowed by this dilemma I will update my post with additional information when appropriate it is more than likely I have left out or misaddressed some information due to the hastiness in which I wrote this Thank...

This started about a month ago when a system restore completely mucked up my computer. I've managed to fix most of the problems (NoelDP is a wizard) but I can't get past the start up screen with the Nvidia drivers enabled. I think I managed to get past it once after a clean install but then I kept getting BSODs. It could be an outdated BIOS (when I click on @BIOS in the GIGABYTE folder in 'All Programs' I get a BSOD) but I really want to know if there are more options before I start mucking around with BIOS flashing.

The graphics card I have is a GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 660 and I've done clean installs of at least 3 different Nvidia driver versions.

A:Windows won't get past Start Up screen with Nvidia drivers enabled.

Nakitu mate this is the right driver for the card - not the top one as it is beta and I would if I were you dump the AVG and pick a different security.

I've just refit my old computer in a new case as a present for my step-son. It has a new hard drive and a fresh install of Windows XP Home. I installed all the motherboard drivers, restarted and then installed the nvidia graphics drivers (the latest ones downloaded from the website) and restarted again.

I got the windows logo on the black screen and the blue bar went accross as normal. Then the screen went black and the a 'lighter black' (if you know what I mean) and I got the cursor thats a pointer and an egg timer - sometimes this screen will stay for a maybe 30 seconds and then the computer will reboot, other times it will just stay at this screen until I press the reset button.

It will boot in safe mode and vga mode. If I uninstall the nvidia drivers, it boots fine again.

Any suggestions?
