Did you install drivers, is your card compatible, etc?

Hi,

I cant install drivers because every time that I try appear the below message...

"the NVIDIA setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Set up will not exit"

My nvidia 8800 gt is compatible with w7, it works after w7 installation, but like 3 or 4 restarts does not detect it anymore.




The only card that appear in my device manager window is the on board card... Intel(R) G965 Express Chipset Family.

When I was working with vista my video card always was detected.

Any suggestions??

Sounds like you need to disable the integrated graphics in the BIOS.

Waht do you mean by "not detected"?

You have the monitor connected to the 8800GT, and after a few restarts, you get no video?

Do you have any option in the BIOS settings for the order of graphics detection?

What's your motherboard? (Fillling in your system specs may be helpful.)

I tried to say with not detected that i have connected with a dvi cable from the card to the monitor but is like dont be connected, because the system dont recognize the card, right now im using a vga cable for the on board card.

im not sure about the BIOS option, i need to check that.


motherboard: Intel Stoughton DG965OT, I will update all my system specs in my profile soon.

gusanto, keep it plugged into your graphics card. Go into BIOS and disable on board video. Make sure you have the right graphics driver, and then try installing as admin. What happens?

Gusanto, there is no need to post in that thread to ask how to flash a BIOS. If you know the name of your motherboard, we can give you instructions on how to do it as each board is different.
