Windows 7: Just a question

Just a question

I have installed windows 7 for about a year on my system and since then I have been having problems with my vga drivers. The only stable driver that I can use is the one shown in the attached image.

At first when windows 7 was installed I had a geforce 7300gs which used to run without any problems on the latest nvidia drivers. For the geforce 8400gs it always keeps on crashing even with the latest Nvidia drivers. I tried everything, including installing in safe mode etc reseating the card, tried every nvidia driver release and I always have to reinstall the microsoft one (show in pic).

Could the nvidia 7300gs driver be conflicting with the 8400gs driver. If so is there a way to remove the driver without having to use the card (I can't anyway since it is dead )

This is strange and i doubt it is a hardware problem since my brother also had a similar problem (his vga burning out) and since i take care of the systems at home, I changed his to a geforce 8400gs since he does not play and they are cheap and he has no problems at all but he had an ATI card before, he has exactly same system specs as mine with same mobo and bios version. He also has windows 7 installed.

Any ideas?

I don't mind having to stay with this driver but I kind of want the CUDA driver (for my uni work).

Thanks
Zurrieq

PS I doubt it is the vga since I dual boot with windows xp and I have not had any problems with the nvidia driver in xp

Hi Zurrieq have you tried these drivers from the card manufacturer Palit Microsystems sometimes it is better to use the OEM versions designed for a particular card

Nope ill give it a try since the CD i had when i bought the vga did not have win 7 drivers and i totally forgot about it hehe. The vga card had burnt (geforce 7300gs) soon after win 7 was installed around a week.

Thanks for the suggestion

Still open for more thoughts.

I agree with Pebbly.

At this point try the Palit drivers.

There isn't anything else available if you already tried Nvidia directly.
