Windows 7: Need help with Nvidia 9800 GT graphics card

Need help with Nvidia 9800 GT graphics card

I have just installed Windows 7 x64, I install the newest NVIDIA driver and I begin to set it up, I get the error saying NVIDIA install cannot continue
This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware.

It does not show up in device manager, nor system information, what does show up though in both, is Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. I try uninstalling it, in safe mode, and it still appears.

I've tried pulling the card out and plugging it back in, like I just got the card.

Please help.

Try go to www.geforce.com website and under drivers go for automatic video card detection or something like that and choose your os. After that you'll have the latest graphic card driver for your card.
I have do this by myself with a nvidia geforce 9600 gt and it works.

I would uninstall the drivers completely delete them from the system 32/drivers folder than reinstall a version that works. The card could be going bad do you notice any artifacts or anything of that nature?

When I changed to Windows 7, the whole computer got wiped, the drivers were wiped too. Nothings wrong with the card. What about the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter?

Better Nvidia Graphics card
Hi, I read on another forum site that a Nvidia Geforce GT630 with 1GB dedicated memory is better than a Nvidia Geforce GT620 with 2GB dedicated memory. Is this true, surely more memory would be a bigger advantage than the slight speed difference between models? Thanks, Tom
