Can't install drivers, please help.

Discussion in 'Nvidia' started by Freedomtarian, May 24, 2013.

  1. Hi,

    I tried to update my graphics driver, so I visited the nvidia website,
    specified graphics hardware (GeForce 8200M G (Notebook)) and downloaded
    the correct driver. When I tried to install, the installer told me that
    the driver is not compatible with my version of windows (Vista Home
    Premium 64-bit) and that no graphics hardware was detected. I went online
    to search for a solution and various forums, including nvidia, said that
    I need to uninstall the old driver first. Since that's what I have to do
    on my Linux computers it didn't seem strange. So, I uninstalled the old
    drivers and tried to install the new drivers but I keep getting the same
    message. I now tried three drivers. Version 310.90 64-bit, 307.83 64-
    bit and 307.83 32-bit. To make matters worse I'm unable to install
    windows' generic driver. I receive a message stating that a driver was
    found but a file is missing. I'm now stuck without a graphics driver.
    What do I do? The computer is a HP Compaq Presario CQ60.

    Thank you.

    You'll have to get your drivers here:

    HP has modified the Nvidia graphics.
