Windows 7: NVidia Quadro driver help

Windows 7 Pro 32Bit
NVidia Quadro driver help

I have an nVidia Quadro in my desktop here at work, just installed Windows 7 Pro 32Bit (trying all the flavors before rolling out to prospective clients).

I can get multiple displays running but I've encountered a problem that has driven me to the breaking point.

From my onboard VGA, I can get full resolution and a great picture. From my Quadro all I get in dual dispaly (not the full 3 or 4 I want) and when it does display on two screens together, it's mirrored.

The display options are only seeing the monitors and Generic PnP and it detects the two both as monitor "1". Their resolution is stuck to 1024x768.

Here's the stranger part: In my Hardware Profiles, it has 2 Standard VGAs listed in Device Manager and 2 "Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family". One of the "Intel" chip and one of the "Standard VGA" each are showing that the devices could not start.

I've uninstalled the drivers for all 4, rebooted, removed them from device manager and even switched my BIOS to boot from the onboard instead of Auto (Dell BIOS).

To finally confound things more, when I do reboot, guess what displays on the BIOS? QUADRO!

My BIOS obviously recognizes and identifies the card, but 7 is just throwing it down. I've tried the new Forceware drivers as well as every driver nVidia had listed for Windows 7 32bit for every model of NVS Quadro with no avail, it just says that no matching hardware is found.

Can this be addressed and fixed or should I just start getting rid to roll over clients video cards like crazy?

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3

I think this is a windows seven configuration problem as in a previous post where someone wanted to run 2 displays from 1 card in PCI-e and 1 from a pci slot. Yet would get an error 10 message pci bridge to pci bridge. Yet he could run this setup in XP. My first thought for you is to load the display driver that is showing the PnP display, as well as the drivers for the other 2 displays. but if the graphics chips are not compatible your going to have issues. onboard VGA chip verus Quadro chip displaying at different refresh rates and resolutions. Of course with the new ATI Hd 5870 you can run 3 displays from 1 card 2 dvi and 1 hdmi, all for around 380.00. Anyway at this time I don't think windows seven from all the articals I researched for the other thread is capabel of these kind of 3 display configurations. Sorry I know this is of no value to you but thought I'd throw in my 2 cents worth . Here is a great artical on ATI's new eyefinity techknowledgy ATI Radeon HD 5870: DirectX 11, Eyefinity, And Serious Speed : Introduction - Review Tom's Hardware by the way these cards are now for sale at the egg. Welcome to sevenforums and let us know if you figure this out. Fabe

Nvidia Quadro FX 1400... What to do with it?
I bought a PCI-Express graphics card off eBay because the seller said it was a PCI graphics card. Well, it was only $20 so shipping it back probably would not be worth it. I wanted to put this in my old desktop to make it a bit more useful, but it has AGP, and PCI, not PCI-Express. :rolleyes: I...

Does anyone know if it is possible to get one of these suckers to work with Win7 x64? I bought the thing back when it was brand new and I spent like $600 on it and I don't want to have to give it up. Any advice would be much appreciated.
No dual monitor with Nvidia Quadro CX
I recently installed an Nvidia Quadro CX card under Windows 7 (risky, I know). Although I'm using the latest drivers from Nvidia, I can't get the second monitor to display through the displayport-to-DVI adapter. I can swap cables all day long and each monitor works fine with the DVI connector;...
