Possible solution to fixing no nvidia control panel

Hey guys. i was having this problem just a minute ago, and after several failed attempts, i finally got it! I thank gullielli specifically for instructions, but mine are more in-depth. here is the source:

No Nvidia control panel/driver not installing

so basically, there is the instructions:

1. Download Driver Sweeper. this program will delete all previous traces of your nvidia drivers (ones you pick). to make things easier, i copied direct links. read the first one then click I agree (theres a direct download link, but i would rather people at least know that there is no tech support on this product and can only be used at your own risk)

download from Guru3D.com

2. after downloading, install it.

3. Now here is the important part. open DriverSweeper and check "NVIDIA - Display" ONLY.

4. i recommend clicking analyze (bottom left) instead of clean (bottom right) because you can at least see what the program will remove.

5. it will ask you to reboot. this is important.

6. after reboot, do NOT (I repeat) DO NOT download new drivers from nvidia sites. after doing so about 3 times, each installation worked, however said it failed to install nvidia control panel. so do the

7. Navigate to the following: start > search "windows update" > click enter > click # optional updates avialable". Look for anything that says "NVIDIA display". If there is nothing that says that, click check for updates on the left hand column.

8. Click on install, and simply wait. the problem here was that a few times, windows would come up with an error, and not install it. but finally, 3rd time, it installed.

9. Reboot, right click, and enjoy the site of the nvidia control panel option!!

Hope this comes in handy for someone.

After repeated driver sweeper cleaning, this driver remover also removes my nForce drivers for ethernet (I marked only displey). Go figure out!?

Am I missing something?

possibly you accidently checked another box..because the program is only set to delete what is checked. what i did was after the reboot (after deletion of drivers), i did a second scan to be sure everything was gone. mine forgot to delete the programdata folder i guess, so i just manually delted.

Hmmm

no. just checked. sweeper cant find any display drivers and still update isnt installing.
Maybe it works then only for 32bit win7.

If you can't get Windows update to work you should check the date on your machine in Windows and also check in bios to make sure it is set to the current date.

If those dates aren't right Windows update will fail everytime.

My windows and bios dates are just fine. All my other updates are working just fine. The problem isnt there.

I have now run driver sweeper, driver cleaner pro, uninstalled from program meny and removed manually. + rebooted after every step. There are no display drivers anymore in my win7. The windows driver updater isnt working for me.

The problem is somewhere else
