graphic card not recognized?

Hello i just installed Windows 7 RC. but now i have a problem my graphic card is not recognized . The weird thing is i hooked up my graphic card to my pc and monitor and that works . i tried to update the driver 186.18 that is windows 7 compatible but it says "The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit." Also i got no other drivers installed. I hope i get a solution .

Thanks

Hello Vaatwassert, wilkommen.

I know the graphics card is compatible (my laptop has one) so that is not an issue. Go to the NVidia Website and download the latest driver and try to install that. If that is what you already did, then go into device manager and find the graphics card. Then right click and select Update driver.

could you check device manager ( type device manager at search) and see if there are any devices labeled "unknown". if not check under display drivers

do you have any UNKNOWN devices that have yellow triangles on them. could you use the snipping tool to take a snapshot of device manager and upload it for us to see??

"This device cannont find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)
If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.

Me trying to read your language is worse than you trying mine. The code 12 is explained here Code 12: This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use
basically it meanstwo device are configured to use the same port, irq, or other resource. if you change one they both will work
