Thanks, but I'd prefer to leave UAC alone and I don't what - if any - long term effects this app has.

That's because the instructions are for English/US version. You can find your inf by going to C:\NVIDIA

Then in the upper right part of Windows Explorer, search for:

*.inf

Did you download the x86 driver?

Also, you don't tell it to look in a folder. You specifically click on the .inf you edited, as part of the process....right after you click have disk then browse. That will open up a navigation pane to go find the .inf.

Alright. Attach (after using Winrar on it) the .inf and I will look at it. Also, right click on the video card in the device manager. Properties. Details tab. Change dropdown to hardware ids. Copy and paste the hardware id strings you're using to here.

I'll make sure the .inf is correct and you can take things from there.

I would just like to say thank you for all your help. I have been lurking on the forum since i installed windows 7 but unfortunately I have not been as lucky as some and have yet to find a solution to my NVIDIA graphic card driver.

I followed the directions in this post but on restart the windows logo gets all distorted and i am forced to power off and restart with my best last known configuration.
