Windows 7: Display Adapter - Can't Download

Display Adapter - Can't Download

I was told by a tech several weeks ago on SevenForums to remove the Display Adapter under the Device Manager from the Control Panel so as to download an all new graphics driver. He had even given me the site for Dell with the page link for various downloads as well as giving me the nVidia site.

HOWEVER, no matter what I do (since I had already uninstalled the adapter), all attempts to download a new graphics adapter have been futile with my getting error messages every time I try - from the Dell site - from the nVidia site and any other site (?????). Can't for the life of me figure this one out!

If anyone could lend some helpful expertise, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so very much. I'm using a Dell Optiplex 760 with Windows 7 Pro OS. And, I certainly wouldn't mind a tech to navigate my PC remotely to troubleshoot the problem. My e-mail is techyboy7 at gmail dot com. Please see error msg screenshots (3) attached here.

What error message are you receiving? you can also do this: Device Manager - Finding Unknown Devices

Heres the Dell driver site. Download, if possible, and SAVE it to your desktop. Install it from there.

Drivers for OptiPlex 760

Have you tried a system restore to a point before you uninstalled the driver? If so and everything else didn't work you could do a repair install to get the basic drivers and then update the one. Thats a little drastic for now, so try the others first.

Thank you, Indianacarnie; but this too failed with an error message when I tried the appropriate drive from the Dell site. See screenshot of error msg attached. I did try a system restore the other evening, but unfortunately that failed too, as the restore would only go back to an early period that same day. (And, I didn't think a system restore could restore hardware that had been removed; perhaps I'm wrong). I'll try the last approach you suggested in doing a repair install and let you know the results. Thanks so much.

Is this what you were looking for? (not sure I did this correctly, as the emoticon was blocking out some of your text.) See attached screenshot.
