As Boozad says mate if you have the beta and I would also be getting rid of the rubbish Mac OS youhave in yours specs, and try again as the driver Boozad linked is the right one.

It would also be worth following this excellent tutorial by Essenbe to perform a clean install of your drivers.

your specs show two machines and we have no way of knowing which you're working on. If both are net/laptops, you should not use drivers from NVidia but use one from your machine's support page.

Hey boozad, thanks for the tutorial page. However for part 7 I had no drivers to uninstall from 'uninstall a program'.

And non of the drivers installed.

Could this be related to a virus?

I did the clean installation and everything.

OK, did you have drivers installed for the card previously? I take it the card's not a recent install, if you could give us a bit of background from before this happened we can work from there.

I basically built my computer around March 2012 and was using it fine. Then I didn't use it for 8 months. I go to get everything booted up and installed and the graphics driver isn't installing. CPU-z showed nothing for the graphics panel. Not sure if that is of help in diagnosing this.
