Windows re-installed wrong graphics card displayed

Hi,

After replacing a hard drive and re-installing windows my desktop(studio XPS 8100) doesn't seem to recognise the previous graphics card an Nvidia GTX 260 and instead displays Standard VGA Graphics adapter. I've tried re downloading the nvidia drivers for the GTX 260 but when installing it says they're not compatible with my version of windows.

Any suggestions?

During the install of the driver it said setup failed to read the required Display Driver to be used with this package

Could be a bad download ..... Which is not that unusual .... Try again if it still happens .... I would leave it to later in the Day/Night
