Unable to install Nvidia driver and also to play games on Windows 8.1

Question: Unable to install Nvidia driver and also to play games on Windows 8.1

Hi all,
I am new to this forum..
To start, I had just bought an ASUS computer.. wanting to play games like borderlands 1, left for dead 2 etc. But, when I was very trilled waiting to start the games, both of them had blacked screen and forced shutdown my computer every time after the game has been launched!
I had done many researches in the net, changing the registry values in directx11, reinstalling the NVIDIA drivers (halfway black screen upon reinstalling), changing the compatibility to Windows 7, adding missing physxcudart_20 to the games...None of them works..T-T
Any help is greatly appreciated!

Preferred Solution: Unable to install Nvidia driver and also to play games on Windows 8.1

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Unable to install Nvidia driver and also to play games on Windows 8.1

I'd recommend to do the following:

Perform a clean install of Windows

Re-install Nvidia drivers
Download CPU-Z and GPU-Z (or any CPU and GPU monitoring software)
Monitor both while attempting to play games - check for temperature spikes.
Doing the above will help you rule out a lot of potential issues that are causing your problems. The clean windows install will get rid of any OS related issues. You never want to touch the windows registry unless you really have to, especially if you're not very well versed in the way it works. It can cause way more harm than good. With that said, the system crashes were probably due to a bad driver instillation and was causing a BSOD - most modern systems are set to restart / shutdown when this happens. You'll never know it happened unless you changed the configuration to stop the automatic shutdown. It could also be temperature related, if your CPU or GPU overheats, it'll typically trigger a system crash as well and result in the same BSOD sequence.

Let me know how it goes after you've tried what I've mentioned.

I have a new machine running Vista 64. I have onboard video but attempted to install an MSI 8600GT Silent edition 256MB DVI HDTV PCI-E Graphics Card from my previous machine.When I tried to install the driver (which is the latest: 260.99) it stopped after a while with the message:Physx System software version 9.10.0514 not installedGraphics Driver 260.89 Failed3D Vision Driver 260.89 Not InstalledI tried again with the earlier driver that I had been using on my old machine and got the same message. This was a clean install and I did a system restore before the second attempt to ensure no detritus was hanging around. I also checked in the BIOS that the onboard had been disabled.I have googled this and I am not alone in having this problem, but no solution appears to have been offered as yet. One person suggested going to Microsoft and using their drivers but all I got from them was the message that no other drivers were necessary for this product. But the performance rating has dropped to 1 without them.

Hi

I'm using Asus 36sg with Nvidia Geforce 610M Graphics card and i have installed Windows 8 Pro X64. When i try to install or even download the driver 306.95 (latest release), it starts complaining that file is corrupt or invalid. Even when i try to install other programs like Eset Nod 32, dropbox, virtualbox, it also complains about corrupt CAB files or corrut or invalid files. Currently I'v managed to install AVG antivirus.

Dont know what to do, i re-installed Windows 2 times now and the problem seems only to get worse.

Help?

THANX

Answer:Unable to install NVIDIA driver

Ok, the driver version is 306.97(not 306.95) and i also tried version 306.23 and i get the same result.

It says "7-zip: Data Error". This is happenning in the beginning when its supposed to save or extract i think to another folder. I tried to extract the file myself but then get the message that over 50 files are corrupted. I dont know what the message exactly means but worth mentioning is that im using winrar x64 and not 7-zip. I'v used 7-zip before i reinstalled windows but got the same error even then.

Hey,

> but without any success.
What does this mean exactly? Do you get an error during installation or what happens exactly?

> Only safe mode is available after this driver installation
Why only safe mode is available? What happens if you start Windows in normal mode?

And before we start a long discussion: What notebook you have?

Can you notice any problems if you install Windows from Toshiba recovery disk?

Please help me! Trying to play theme hospital on windows 10 and when I try to play it says I need to install directplay. It then says it needs to restart the pc to do so. It restarts and then nothing happens and it hasn't installed. Tried this over and over. Read many other threads online for this problem and none of the advice helps. I have tried going into windows features and turning directplay on by ticking the box but it then says about restarting the pc, which again I do and it restarts, nothing has happened and the box is unchecked again. Going round in circles!
I would be grateful for the help!
Thanks in advance.

Answer:How do you install directplay on windows 10 to play old games?

Welcome to TenForums @lyds84

DirectPlay is a deprecated feature, which is why it's not included in Windows 10 by default. It can however be enabled if you need it. NB: you must be signed in as an administrator to be able to turn it on. See this tutorial.

In an effort to update my driver software for my new laptop running windows 8 I have uninstalled the driver for my Nvidia card, which was not working properly. Before this, and after this I have tried to update it and always got the same response: The best driver software for your device is installed. It gives me that message even when "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" is the driver. I tried downloading driver software from the Nvidia website and it tells me "This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware".

My card is a Nvidia GeForce GTX 670MX.

Answer:Windows 8 Nvidia : Unable to update driver software

Laptop manufacturers sometimes use custom device IDs for their onboard graphics. Driver installers from nVidia may not recognize them.

It's best to get the drivers from the laptop manufacturer, if you can. It's particularly important if your laptop uses switchable graphics.

So this one is pretty weird for me. I've never had any issues like this before, but I think it has to do with having all my drivers up to date. I was having this problem for a long time where I couldn't run games for too long because eventually the whole screen would get all glitchy and the last second of sound would repeat itself over and over until the monitor went into power saving mode. I tried reinstalling drivers, installing different graphic drivers like NGO and Omega which I had before.. Nothing worked!

Well, just recently my friend showed me this program driver cleaner pro and he said it helped him with his driver issues. So I followed the directions, uninstalled my drivers, cleared everything with the program in safe mode, restarted and reinstalled the drivers. Voila, all my games work with no issues at all, except for Counter-Strike 1.6.
Then I tried to watch a movie; It plays fine, I can hear the sound fine, but the video doesn't play. Even when I tried to record a video with fraps of one of my emulators (which has worked before), it didn't show video on playback.

So I restarted my computer.. now all my games don't work except Diablo 2, Starcraft, and CS 1.6. However, now I can watch movies with no problem at all! These past couple of weeks I've been having to go through the whole process of using driver cleaner pro, and installing Omega drivers again everytime my computer needed to reboot.

I am wondering about the correct procedure to follow when updating an NVIDIA Video driver in a windows Vista PC. I have the driver ready to install. I already tried to do this, but didn't seem to work. I uninstalled the old driver through add/remove programs and then deleted it from device manager. The problem was when I rebooted I failed to realize that Vista updates the driver automatically. This prevents me from installing the video driver that I wanted to. In XP you can choose not to update and then install your own. Should I have installed the new driver before rebooting.

Do you really have to uninstall the old one first, or just update the current one. What's the step by step best way to do this. Thanks.
 

Answer:NVIDIA Driver Install in Windows Vista

Your are following best practices when installing the driver. I have found in my work as a computer tech that thier is no issue in upgrading the Windows driver with the Nvidia driver. So just go ahead and install it. If your updating a Nvidia driver you should remove it before installing a newer version of the Nvidia driver.

This happened relatively out of the blue:

i was trying to get drivers for my printer. After restart, screen went black. I restarted in safe mode with netwking to find out what to do. So I eventually found out my graphics card had no driver; it had a generic vga adapter. So I search for my graphics card to find it is an Nvidia GeForce fx 5200 and I get the drivers for it. I restart in normal mode: no success. restart in safe' with net' . starts and am notified that drivers have installed. Now on next restart in normal mode, application error 0xc150002...press ok. Then i get a message in the bottom right hand corner that says 'windows is not genuine build 7600'...
I have seen how to change it with/without cmd, but either requires normal mode.

So how do I re enter my product key?

Answer:After Nvidia driver install, get 'windows not genuine'

First, do a sfc /scannow to check the integrity of your system files... failing that, do a system repair with your installation DVD..Hope this helps..

Answer:Y500 nvidia driver gt750m windows 8 NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver stopped responding

When you switch to battery power, the GPU will run at a lower speed.  If your GPU is stable at a low speed but causes driver crashes at its normal speed, that is usually a sign that your GPU is failing.  I am assuming that you have tried recent drivers from the Nvidia website.  I am using version 340.52 without any problems. http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/77228/en-us Try running the GPU-Z program from TechPowerUp.  The sensors tab will show you the MHz your GPU is running at.

Hello,I have downloaded the nvidia driver 6md647ww (311.00), 64 bit version, and can't install on a Windows 7 64-bit system. It says "no compatible device found". The strange thing is, although the decompression routine and the window asking to start installation both say that they are the 64 bit version, the text besides the check mark "install the driver now" says it will install the 32 bit version (after decompressing the window says 64 bit in the upper part, but 32 bit in the lower part).So I guess there is an error in the installation routine which erronously wants to install the 32 bit version although it is DEFINITELY the 64 bit version I have downloaded. Also, I downloaded for testing the 32 bit version of the driver (5md647ww), and if I try to install that, I get exactly the same error as with the 64 bit version.Could someone please look into the 6md647ww, there is something wrong with it. Also, I can install 6md640ww and 6md643ww without any problems and switch between these two versions without any error - the 6md647ww issue is definitely NOT a problem of my OS configuration.I have a sporadic heavy crash issue with 6md643ww and need to upgrade badly.Please help. Best regards, MichaelSystem: Lenovo W701, 16 GB Ram, Windows 7 64 Bit, NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800M

Grab the driver off of NVIDIA's site instead. They're almost if not exactly the same thing.

Usually the best thing to do in these situations is to download the driver again. Uninstall the one that you have and reinstall with the new download. Also ensure you have the correct download for you card.
Sometimes downloads can become corrupt.

W530 Thinkpad. I upgraded to Windows 10, then installed the various Lenovo support tools (system update, etc).  Ran those. Then downloaded the NVIDIA drivers for Win10, 64bit system and ran the installer.  The install proceeded for a little while, then stopped with a message that the compatible graphics hardware could not be found.  I do not see NVIDIA hardware listed in device manager under display. Suggestions on how to proceed welcomed!

Answer:After Win10 upgrade, NVIDIA driver install fails - cannot see NVIDIA HW

Go into the BIOS, Config -> Display, and set "discrete graphics", and Optimus legacy OS to DISABLED.
 
This will eliminate the built-in Intel HD graphics from your W530, leaving only the nVidia graphics for which that retail nVidia driver will now be very happy.
 
Of course nVidia graphics uses more power than Intel graphics, so you may not want to do this if you run on battery much of the time. Or, just plug the laptop in when you use it and you won't have a problem. You'll now always be getting best possible graphics performance. Note that even if on battery, you should have at least 2-3 hours of portable use when using nVidia graphics, depending on the apps you run and other power manager settings to conserve power.  But I just run plugged into the wall and don't have a concern.

Thanks so much.

And sorry for my english.

Answer:Re: Satellite P850 - cannot install Nvidia driver from NVIDIA webpage

It is well known that graphic card manufacturers don?t support cards used on mobile machines and used drivers are supported by notebook manufacturers directly.

Driver preinstalled by Toshiba is bit modified and offer notebook hardware protection (avoid overheating) so it is strongly recommended usage of Toshiba drivers only.

Are you not happy with graphic performance or what?

Story: my company got two Z580 for me and my collegaue. His was Windows 7 edition (Win7 sticker at the bottom), mine Windows 8 edition (Win8 sticker at the bottom). Since we use Windows 7, I had to reinstall the system (to Windows 7). Everything went fine to the point when I had to install Nvidia drivers. The installer states that I don't have compatible hardware. This is odd becuase I have also Nvidia "Geforce with CUDA" sticker, and even BIOS knows I have dual card (Optimus). Windows by itself detected Intel chip and unknown VGA one. I tried Lenovo drivers (for Nvidia) and also the ones grabbed directly from Nvidia site. Any help/hints are greatly appreciated.Thank you in advance.

Just got a new Valkyrie CZ-15 from the site ibuypower and so far I've tried playing ACE Online, Maplestory, Chivalry Medieval Warfare, ORION Dino Horde, and Company of Heroes 2. I can't even start up Maplestory and CoH 2, and the frame rate is terrible on ACE Online when enemies group together on screen. Bad framerate on ORION and Chivalry as well. I tried running Runescape and that ran fine, along with Minecraft. What can I do to fix this? I've already tried updating the Intel and NVIDIA graphics driver.

Here are the problems I'm noticing: Maplestory only loads up until the Black Cipher thing, then crashes and requests to send an error report, CoH 2 is unable to create a dump file (error 183) and also requests to send an error report. After troubleshooting Maplestory's compatibility with Windows XP (SP3), Windows 7, and Windows Vista (SP2) all of them come up as Maplestory still being incompatible with my laptop. Would downgrading to Windows 7 fix this or is my laptop just not meant for this? Are the specs not enough? I'd even be willing to downgrade to Windows XP if it would solve this.

Please help.

Ok i just completed my custom build and everything works fine. i hook up my computer to my tv and when i go to load any videogame i get a message that says unable to initilize directx or direct 3d, something to that effect. Im assuming this has something to do with the computer being connected to my tv, considering it works on my cpu monitor. i dont even know where to begin to trouble shoot. Im running windows 7 connected to tv directly with a dvi cable. Like i said i was able to play on my monitor before so i know my drivers are correct. i reinstalled direct x again just incase. Anyone have any ideas?
 

Answer:Unable to play games when connected to my tv

Hi, I think I had about the same trouble a couple of years ago...

It might be such an easy issue that your TV does not support the Hertz you're running your monitor.. Read up on your tv model and check if it really is capable of running something like 75hz - 85hz, or maybe even 100hz, and try decrease the hertz manually in the gfx - driver (or just in the standard resolution options)

Try cleaning both the disc and the lens using a cleaning kit. You can get them for a couple of quid.If this doesn't help, you may need to replace the drive.

Hi guys, i only just joined the forum but i have had significant  help from this site in trouble shooting my old Windows Me rig so im hoping you could help me again. I recently decided to improve my entertainment experience by purchasing a 28inch lcd tv to replace my old 19inch dell lcd monitor that was outdated and becoming faulty, i set-up the tv and linked it to the computers graphics card (Ati HD 2600) with a vga cable rather than the s-video because i hear the quality is very low, well upon doing this i am able to use the basic functions of my desktop computer eg internet and word processing and also some low demand games like Tribes 2 but when i go to play any graphics demanding games i reach a road block in the form of it not working at all usually it freezes or hangs. so im wondering whether linking the computer to the tv for more than surfing isnt possible as i have heard now that the tvs and the monitors have different specifications pixel wise, or if there is a way i would greatly appreciate your help.System  specs Windows vista 32bit 500gb Hard drive 2gb ddr 2 ram Ati HD 2600 (512 mb) Thanks in advance

Answer:Unable to Play modern games using my LCD tv

Were you able to play these games before the monitor change (with the 19 in.)? The problem you are experiencing is most generally related to a less than adequate graphics card and/or insufficient RAM. However there are other factors also that can affect your performance--so what is the answer to the 1st question?truenorth

Hi. I'm new to this site, so I hope I'm posting this in the right section.
I am unable to load games on Shockwave.com. Some games I can load ( Super Text TwistŪ, Daily Jigsaw , (just to name a few) , and then some I can't load (JigsawParty, Monkey Quest).

I've contacted Shockwave Help. They've basically gave up on me, and told me there's nothing they can do (in so many words). So I'm at a lost here. I don't know why I can't load games on Shockwave. I've tried just about everything.

This is what happens when I try to load Jigsaw Party/or Monkey Quest:
With Google Chrome...

I'll get to the "Connect..." screen, then nothing happens, and I'm stuck on that screen. Or I'll get the "Connecting..." screen, and then a message saying: "Service is down. Please try again later."
With IE...

I get the advertisement, and then after the screen goes blank.
Here are the things Shockwave Customer Support told me to do:

1. They told me to uninstall, then reinstall both Adobe Flash Player, and Adobe Shockwave Player...

(This actually worked. But, I wanted to clear my browsing data (cache/cookies, etc.), and then it stop working again, for some reason. I don't know if that had something to do with it.)

I just recently built a computer for a friend on mine so he would be able to play his flash based games online and offline. After the initial boot-up games played wonderfully @ 640x480 resolution. After updating his graphics drivers and changing the resolution to anything above 640x480 the games became unplayable due to lag. We have updated all drivers to the latest, BIOS, VIA Chipset drivers etc... even rolled back graphics & sound drivers to previous versions to no avail. We have also unchecked "hardware acceleration" in flash to see if that would help which it has not. The computer is more than capable of running flash games as it's a 1.7ghz, 1024mb DDR, GeForce 6800 512mb DDR. The computer exceeds all minimum requirements for these games (Machinarium etc..) Flash & Shock-Wave both have been updated to the very latest as well as legacy version to see if that was the problem, which it was not. We're really stuck on what to do and running out of ideas fast.

But every time I reinstall I still get the same error message saying my java is not installed or is disabled. I have went through ever tech support person they have there and to no avail , I still cant play any games. I have done everything I know to do and also everything they have listed in the "help" section which has truly been no help. So now I turn to you! I have been to the java.com website also and I cant even get java to download so I can install it...any suggestions on how to get this fixed?
 

Answer:Unable to play games on pogo

My wife plays Pogo anytime she's on the computer. Suddenly, a few weeks ago, she couldn't play any of the games, none of them! I searched the Web for answers and got the same old run around everyone else is getting; "Empty IE Cashe" and "Empty Java Cashe" or "Re-install Java" (Round & round, we go!).
I had another computer online and it would play everything just fine and was using IE6. So I uninstalled IE7, which supposedly reverts back to IE6. Well, this didn't turn out so good, everything was really screwed up. So I decided to crash the computer, reformat and do a 'clean' install of Windows XP which comes with IE6.
This worked OK for about a day or two, until I started updating XP and IE6. Somewhere along the way the updates caused the old Pogo Problem to rear it's head again. She was 'let's say' ANGRY!!!
For two weeks I struggled with attempted fixes, nothing fixed it. I was at my wits end and thought "If IE won't work, how about another browser?"
I downloaded "Mozilla Firefox" and troubles have simply vanished!!! She plays any game without problems.
So much for Microsoft forcing IE on us.

i tried to update my graphics driver to the latest, version 353 for my graphics card nvidia geforce GT 630.
after the restart, my pc reverted to primitive resolution. i checked in device manager and saw an error code 37 in the graphics driver saying that it wont run.

i downloaded Display Driver Uninstaller to be able to remove all nvidia components in safe mode then tried clean installation. then i encountered the same error. i tried to use system restore and reverted back to a previous working state but then started to experience unexpected laggs.

a new driver was published and i tried to update mine again to version 355.6. then i encountered the error code 37 again. exactly the same. my system restore point to an earlier working version got automatically wiped clean by my pc and all restore points now are versions without any graphics driver.

i have tried to search the internet for all sort of related problem but unfortunately i was unable to find anything that would work for me.

maybe just maybe its a malware? can anybody here be kind enough to help me? pls. thanks!!!!!!

I recently had a problem with my games (found in the thread here) that involved the games lagging badly. It turned out to be an image settings preference that I hadn't set properly. In my attempt to fix the problem however I did a clean install of drivers and updated to v301.42.

Since I installed the new driver none of my games would start (NBA 2K12, Assassin's Creed, Skyrim etc.) and simply go to a black windowed screen. Skyrim tells me that 'Your display doesn't support the selected resolution'. However, I am using the native resolution (1680x1050) for my monitor.

Has anyone got any ideas as to why this might be happening and/or how I could go about fixing it?

Answer:Resolution not set properly, unable to play games

Hello once again JaidynM,

Can you try lowering the resolution of your monitor to non-native temporarily to test out a hypothesis i have?

Try setting the resolution to 1280x800 or 1280x720 (next 16:10/16:9 resolution on your list i presume), and running the affected games again?

Also for Skyrim, If you do not have any custom Skyrim.ini or custom SkyrimPrefs.ini files (ones you've modified personally, line by line and do not wish to delete), could you try to back them up and then delete them from your Documents/My Games/Skyrim folder to allow the game to generate fresh ones for your newly minted drivers?

After doing so, run the launcher again, let the game auto-detect your hardware and and run the game again..

Give it a shot and holler back...

EDIT:- How about other 3D based software like benchmarks (Unigine Heaven) or Furmark? Do they run with the same errors?

http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/

Also with Skyrim, try running it in windowed mode as an experiment?

It would be hard to say the problem is with your computer when you have replaced the motherboard, GPU, RAM and drive. If your computer works fine otherwise, I don't see how it could be your CPU either.

Hey all, I'm having an issue trying to clean install windows 8.1 on this new B50-30.It's the Celeron N2840 model (MCA32MH). I have replaced the HDD for a SSD (Crucial bx100) and have created a UEFI bootable USB stick holding a Windows 8.1 With Bing image (I get past the enter serial part now, image matches stored key). During Windows setup i get the following message:Load driver - A media driver your computer needs is missing...etcI cannot select any harddisk.  The sata controller is set to AHCI in bios, I have tried loading the latest Intel chipset drivers during setup. I can only add the SM bus driver from the list and it doesnt work. I also get the same error on a different Win 8.1 image.Somehow it seems to be missing the drivers, which drivers should I use? Isnt it regular Intel? Or could it  be something else? I have done the exaxt same on another B50 (older model) last week without any issues.. Any ideas? Cheers,Arie

Answer:B50-30 sata driver - unable to install windows 8.1

hi Arie,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If you;re able to see the SSD in the BIOS and/or see it under Disk Management while using the stock HDD then you may want to consider the following:
 
1. Boot from the stock HDD and update the BIOS
 
BIOS Update Utility - Ideapad 305-15IBY, Lenovo B40-30, B50-30, B50-30 touch, E40-30 Laptops
 
2. Update the SSD's firmware to  MU02 (latest as of this writing).
 
http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/support-ssd-firmware
 
3. Using the stock HDD, connect the Crucial SSD and convert the volume to MBR first to see if there's a compatibility using the drive as GPT.
 
If none of the above methods works then there's likely a compatibility issue with the SSD's controller and/or the BIOS (similar to this thread). In this case, consider using a different brand (e.g., Samsung) and observe.

Has anyone else seen this or experienced it? I have set "Device Installation Settings" No in the System Properties options.

I've gone as far as removing the drivers with DDU from guru3d in safe mode as well. The GPU driver will still install one of two ways. The first is if I manually go to Windows Updates it will install if I check for updates. Or the driver will auto install at some point at random.

I would like to prevent both of these actions and the Device Installation Settings seem to have no effect. I also want to avoid setting any group policy's as I have Windows 10 home.
Any ideas? Currently using the Windows 10 Creator update on a fresh install done with the USB media creator tool today.

I've been having issues with my NVIDIA Drivers becoming corrupt on my Y700 with the NVIDIA Geforce GTX 960M. Every few days when I try to play a DirectX games like Guild Wars 2 or Team Fortress 2, the games fail to launch. GW2 doesn't fire up after clicking the Play button in the launcher but there is not warning message. TF2 will give a Direct3D error when I try to launch it. In any case, the only solution I have found is to download and reinstall the NVIDIA drivers. I currently have driver verion 368.22 but this has been happening on older NVIDIA drivers as well. After reinstalling the NVIDIA drivers, everything works fine for a few days.

3 days ago i started having a black screen problem while playing games that normally would run on my PC ( for example League of Legends and Skyrim , the latter on low details ).

The problem is as follows : In League of Legends which i've been running on High details for 6 months now i started getting a black screen for about 2-4 seconds , afterwhich the game resumed. At least this is what happened for a while, but it started increasing in frequency and i had numerous Crashes (bugsplat errors) with a message saying that my video drivers have stopped working. This culminated with me also getting a Green Screen during the game that resulted in me restarting my pc ( basically the screen went green and i couldn't do anything else except manually restart)

The drivers are up to date so i have nothing to upgrade. I checked my video card thinking it might overheat and it runs at ~60C.

I cleaned the dust off my PC , reinstalled Windows and increased video card fan speed a bit.

Now i have almost the same problem, i still get the Black screen error that lasts 2-4 seconds and occasionally i get the Green Screen aswell forcing me to restart.

I decreased my League of Legends graphic details from High to Very Low, decreased FPS rates from 60 to 30 and now it runs without problems, but here's the catch: everything that worked smoothly before such as Skyrim and other high demanding games ( from a video card PoV) are now unplayable, i can only run older games like for example...

For the last 2 days I am trying to get my Laptop up and running but without much success. The Wireless Driver does not work at all.

2. Click Start > Run > type devmgmt.msc. Navigate to Network Adapters and check if the wireless card is properly installed. If you don't see any and you see Network Controller on Other Devices, your wireless card driver may not be installed.

Sorry if this has been addressed already (a search didn't yield exactly what I was looking for). I'm planning on doing a clean install of Win10 next weekend after upgrading from 7 x64 Pro. I'm wondering if anybody has a detailed account on what happens after the first load of Win10 after a fresh install; as far as Windows Update automatically actually going out and getting the NVidia driver and installing it then it being installed after a reboot instead of just manually installing the drivers off of the NVidia site. Does it actually do all of the device driver downloads and installs in the first 15 min. as others have described, or will it wait until you go into the settings app and hit the windows update button?

Thanks for any advice...

It is chosen by through the nVidia control panel - it isn't and cannot be made the primary GPU.  Only the Intel GPU has a connection to the display panel -- the nVidia GPU is a co-processor.  All video data passes through the Intel GPU on it way to the screen.

Over the last couple days I tried to install ' command and conquer - the first decade' and Battle for Middle Earth II and the expansion pack and could not get past the splash screen. I first tried this in Vista Ultimate 64 bit.

I looked for updated drivers - started with nvidia.

Ran the games as 'administrator' using the shortcut on the desktop. I uninstalled and tried each game again. ( I dual boot on this machine) I tried to install both games on XP sp2.

Each time I attempted to play either games - it's kicks me back to desktop. In vista I then tried 'compatibilty mode' for xp sp2. Then the game asks me to insert the correct disk.

I attempted that - then I thought - maybe it is because I am using an LG Sata dvd drive, so I installed the NEC ide drive I had sitting around (less than a year old) - Bam - same errors.

I have installed these games on other PCs in my house in the past - the disks are good

I can play Sup com and bf2142 - I have had them installed for months.

Thoughts? Help?

Thanks in advance.

Hello guys.

I've been having this problem for awhile since I'm still on Win7.
I'm so frustrated that after I clean installed Win10 on my laptop, the problem is still there.

The laptop is 4 years old if that can help solving this problem and the problem happened just recently.

Already tried re-installing the newest driver with DDU and also tried reverting back to older driver but end up with the same problem.

Did opened the case to clean for dust and tried to play some games while the case isn't assembled and games running for a long time and didn't have the driver crash, but after the case assembled and awhile, the problem persist.

Tried using Furmark to check whether gpu overheating or anything.
Running the GPU stress test on 1920x1080 and 1366x768 shows that the temperature goes above of 80c steadily from idle temperature(idle 50c). That's bad isn't it?

But, in games, the driver keep crashing and recovering on 53~60c mark, does my gpu is overheating cause of the games?

Will changing my gpu thermal paste helped? It's my last resort though  

Here some readings during the incident from GPU-Z:
As you can see, graph stripes is the one where the problem occured.
The problem is reproducible, so if the screenshot didn't help much I can try again.



Any input to solve this problem is welcome, please assist me on what to do next.

Hello friends,

I'm having problems trying to install Windows 7, hopefully you guys can help.

I own an HP Stream 13 like this one here: Amazon.com: HP Stream 13.3-Inch Laptop (Intel Celeron, 2 GB RAM, 32 GB SSD, Cobalt Blue) with Office 365 Personal for One Year: Computers & Accessories

It came with Windows 10 pre-installed. I get free access to Windows products via dreamspark through my school. I decided I wanted to download Windows 7. I got through the setup and ended up at the partition part where it says:
"Windows cannot be installed to this disk. Windows needs the driver for device [Intel SD Host Controller]. Click 'Load Driver' and load the required device driver."
I have tried downloading Intel's automatic driver detection utility thing, but that did not work.

I have also tried Shift+F10, diskpart, list disk, sel disk 0, clean. But it came with an error in the command prompt that says:
"Virtual Disk Service error:
Clean is not allowed on the disk containing the current boot,
system, pagefile, crashdump or hibernation volume."

I'm at a stump. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Uni,
W7 likes to be installed as No1, even on a virtual Drive.
Your best bet is to install 7 and make 10 the virtual,
BUT
if you only have 2gb Ram, then you'll have to use 32bit versions, or buy more Ram

The drivers should available via the HP website for that model
