Graphic drivers NVIDIA

Hello! I had problems with drivers so I removed my drivers for windows 7 BETA x 64 build 7068 and I downloaded new driver 181.71 BETA for Windows 7.

It's giving me a best error message ever seen:
It's telling it in finnish me but its saying:

Software detected that OS you are using isn't windows. This program is only for windows OS.

So what the ****???

Windows 7 beta 64 bit build 7000
 
 

Wow, that's rich. I have changed vid drivers several times using the latest VISTA 64 bit drivers and using the W-7 beta driver with no problems. When I change vid drivers, I uninstall my vid cards via Device Manager and reboot to Safe Mode. I install the driver in Safe Mode and reboot to w-7. I'm running a GTX 260 & a 8800GT for PhysX. The only twist I have ever had, was that the PhysX driver did not install initially. I installed the driver by locating the extracted driver under the NVIDIA folder. Other than that, I have found changing vid drivers in W-7 pretty smooth.

You are really lucky. now I clicked in device manager " scan for hardware changes " and Windows 7 installed me a graph. driver but it's not working because temperatures raises to 80-85. In win xp never happened that. And very interesting this is I cant enter on nvidia control panel it keep saying " the nvidia display panel cannot be created. Possible reason include : version mismatch. reinstalling my solve this problem." :SSSS

How did you install the new build. Sometimes if you upgrade windows you can run into loads of problems. I have installed most of the new builds and have no problems.

I burnt Windows 7 into dvd-r and erased all old files with Windows 7 install disc and then installed into windows 7 build 7068. So I haven't been on old builds. ^^

Hi, Just downloaded and run 181.71 on the 7000 release with an ASUS 9600GT. Got a blue screen on re-start and when I re-booted it appears to be running OK. Did you simply let NVidia application load itself or attempt to load from location? Jak

I tryed to load from location but it didn't seen my graphic driver file. Nvidia load the latst nvidia driver always if I install some driver or delete the driver. I can use only this driver. I just watched out in nvidia forums and there so many people have problem with 181.71 for crashing. So the 181.71 BETA release is bugged and Windows 7 don't let me install another version. Thats bad.

If you right click on the icon you will notice the option to "troubleshoot compatability". You will find it underneath run as administrator. Click on that too.

The latest driver installer is giving me fits. It's saying "not a 7 zip archive" I have never used 7 Zip. I cant change the name or the properties. I can't even run the installer. I think this may be why but not sure. If anyone knows a solution let me know. I've tried reading the posts in the Nvidia driver threads. Look at the "original filename" here. (starts with 7Z)

I tried changing the name, that's why the 181.1...I took the 7 out. Also .reg files have no option to "merge" because I tried Brinks 7zip fix. I think I have file system problems in Windows 7.

I think you have a fake driver. This is not from Nvidia.

I have the same video card so I know this is wrong.
