Windows 7: Nvidia Drivers (again)

Nvidia Drivers (again)

Computer
Intel MB DH67GD
I7 2600 CPU
8 Gb Ram
Nvidia GTX 750 TI 2Gb (new)

I had the GTX 750 TI installed at the local shop with the Nvidia drivers. The driver package was a year old. I downloaded the newest drivers (340.52 WHQL). I followed the instructions in this forum exactly, Every I dotted and every T crossed. I started the install and received the dreaded driver install failure. Ok, I ran through the whole operation again, same failure. I downloaded another installation guide right from Nvidia. Same thing. Why every time with every Nvidia driver? This is the 3rd time this year. Ok, so now is there any way possible to get this thing installed or is it going back to the shop? As always, any comments or suggestions welcome. Maybe try a safe mode install?
Tnx,
(Whoops I did it again) Dusty

I experienced a similar failure with my Gainward GeForce GTX 460 Goes Like Hell by downloading the latest drivers from nVidia, they didn't work.
I had to go back to Gainward and take the latest drivers there (of course aren't the latest nVidia) and they worked well.

I would suggest you not to install the "latest" drivers since you won't gain too much benefits unless you're enrolled in a game race show.

Got it!

It was a long elimination process but here it is. Uninstall all Nvidia, make sure the "graphics driver" is the last to be uninstalled. Download and run DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller, Current version 13.0.1.0). That will run in Safe Mode and remove anything Nvidia (or AMD if you choose) related. After a reboot, still in safe mode, run the driver installer. Worked fine with one caveat, I had to install PhysX separately, but that was a non issue. So that only took 3 days to figure out and I thought I was going to reboot the computer to death. Hope this helps some poor dude or dudette before he/her pulls his/her hair out. Make sure when you install that the you check the checkbox "Clean Install".
