Do you mean in Programs and Features?

How about reinstalling the NVIDIA graphics driver which has PhysX included?

You cannot uninstall the driver by deleting the files manually. If you do, you are going to mess things up. They must be uninstalled properly through Programs & Features.

Did you try reinstalling the graphic drivers as posted above yet?

Please go ahead and fill out your system specs to see what graphics card/chip you have.

I'm a bit confused. You say you have Intel(R) HD Graphics Family, so you will not be able to install PhysX that's designed for NVIDIA graphic cards/chips. Intel is not compatible with PhysX.

This would be the reason why you are getting a "This Graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware." error everytime you try to install NVIDIA drivers for Intel. It just will not work. You will only be able to install Intel HD Graphics drivers instead.
