Windows 7 doesnt show my 8800 gt card

hy
i cant install any drivers for my 8800 gt card
when i first put windows 7 it showed about 8 excamation mark in my device manager
it says like this:
This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.

now i got it to show only one
but, whenever i tried to install driver for my card its says i dont have that hardware..

any solutions?
thx

Edit: apparently i dont have any graphic driver installed, i dont know how can i see someting on my monitor

Use Driver Sweeper to remove the native driver that Windows installed from Safe Mode...not the VGA driver, then install the driver downloaded directly from Nvidia.

Are you using that computer to acess the forum now? In other words, is your monitor getting a signal? If so, it should show the display adapter, regardless of what driver is installed. Since you apparently can see the Device Manager, I shall assume that it is on this computer, and not having any display adapter shown in the DM manager is very unusual. I would start by reseating the video card and rechecking it connections...power and video cable.

Here are the direct links for the drivers:

32-bit NVIDIA DRIVERS 197.45 WHQL

64-bit NVIDIA DRIVERS 197.45 WHQL

These are the versions that I use on my system, which also has an 8800GT card.

i installed windows 7 today, before that i had xp where my graphic card normaly function, i didnt open up my computer
and i cant install any nvidia driver cause when i try it says i dont have any hardware for it..
i read somewhere else that native drivers that were installed for my graphic card can cause problems like

ok, i think that maybe this is the problem
i couldnt install windows 7 at the begining cause i had some problems, so i figured out my problem in installing
i needed to disable APIC mode in bios, cause if its enabled i couldnt go past the starting windows screen
and now when i installed windows 7, i tried to enable APIC mode, but again i stuck at starting windows screen.
as i googled a lot of ppl said that disabling APIC mode affected their pci-e
so any suggestion now ?

edit: i found out that VgaSave conflicts with my pci-e, but i cant do anything cause if you disable it, you wont be able to go to windows no more (it messes up your booting of windows)

No. bad move. don't.

not that driver sweeper can remove it anyway (it can't access filerepository)

APIC cannot be modified without a reinstall, it changes the HAL type.

You are saying something that I haven't heard before...about filerepository. I Googled it, but the returns that I got were a mixed bag, that I'm not in the mood to sift through. Perhaps you could provide a link?

Also, since the second quote is not mine, you should have included to poster's name to it.
