Windows 7: Nvidia, Digital Vibrance and Image Sharpening

Nvidia, Digital Vibrance and Image Sharpening

Hello, Gang

I am using Nvidia 179.13 on GeForce 7300 GT
The Digital Vibrance and Image Sharpening options show in the Nvidia Control pannel
when the driver is first installed, Than after a reboot ( or Two ) the Image Sharpening
Option Disappears and the Digital Vibrance option is listed but is non functional.

I have not been able to correlate this to any changes or other actions, Sometimes
they function properly and sometimes they fail. This always happens after a reboot.

System has been scanned for viruses with multiple programs. It occurs even after a
clean install.

Sometimes after a reboot they are active but are set to Zero.

I have tried everything I can think of, Your help is greatly appreciated. I need these settings to help see with my old eyes.

Richard too

Has it only just started happening with this driver version?

This has been happening on at least the last three versions.

Thanks for helping

When you re-install your drivers, do you uninstall previous ones, and use Driver Sweeper to fully clean then install the new ones?

Thanks Everlong,

I was not aware of that utility. I used Driver Sweeper as you suggested, through safe mode for both
uninstall and reinstall, I was also able to block Windows from downloading an older driver.

Sorry to say it made no difference.

I noticed the Driver Sweeper option to uninstall the Chipset. I did not
uninstall it, would this help? If so how do I reinstall it.

I really appreciate your help, this problem is very irritating. Could it be a hardware glitch?

7 series are old enough, my card is as ancient as yours. Few newer drivers would give them full function and most of them not.

I had tested almost every Nvidia driver for Windows 7 from 170.xx to the newest 197.25, and only three ones' digital vibrance and image sharpening options would function normally: 174.55, 191.66, and 195.62. And you're adviced to try 191.66 firstly.

1. Download Nvidia Driver 191.66 Windows 7 x86 here , (your ram is 2 GB, I guess your OS should
be x86.)

2. Extract the downloaded file and rename the file folder as Nvidia 191.66 Windows 7 x86 .

3. Download the Modified Inf. file there, then move and replace the nv_disp.inf file to your
Nvidia 191.66 Windows 7 x86 file folder.

Please tell if that driver works or not after testing.

Thanks for the good information.

I downloaded 191.66 but it would not install (does not fit hardware )

I could not find either of the tow versions you suggested.

I think you are on the right track. This did not happen on the older drivers, I wish I had kept them.

Did you replace the nv_disp.inf file?

Nevertheless, try 174.55 for vista (x86) then. You can find it here. (Sorry, perhaps it will become the same story that you should try a lot of drivers and find some suitable ones as I had done before. )

Extract the downloaded file and click the setup.exe to install directly (this one need not replace the nv_disp.inf file).

Both Digital Vibrance and Image Sharpening functions work normally to my card though the adjustment might be a little stuttered.......

Really, the appearance of Windows 7 becomes dull without digital vbrance and image shapening. Sincerely hope you find a good driver for your card.

Outstanding, 194.55 works perfectly.

Thank You Very Very Much. This has been bugging me for a long time ( probably since I updated from 194.55.)

Could not have done it without your help. Keep up the good work
