Windows 7 won't accept ANY Nvidia drivers to completely install---Period.

    Question

  • Every single set of drivers I have tryed to install(AND, they are 64-bit drivers). Windows 7 will NOT totally accept. Windows 7 kicks out the install--right as it get to it's patterned screen to continue and finish the actual install.
             I have TWO 7950 GT 512 mb. OC BFG cards SLied and I'm running have been running with what was "stated as" totally Windows 7 compatiable with Windows 7?!?
         Does ANY one here have an answer that might just work?

  • What is your Windows 7 edition? Is it x64 or x86?

    Trying to install x64 drivers in x86 OS is futile, you should've known that

    Also, try the official beta Windows 7 driver from nVIDIA in www.nvidia.com I've tried Windows 7 Beta Build 7000 x64, and Windows 7 RC1 Build 7100. Both with their respective system's drivers (x64 and x86 nVIDIA Windows 7 graphics card driver) and I'm lucky to report both of them installed succesfully

    verify your Windows 7 Edition and try that beta Windows 7 driver from nVIDIA, you might get yourself to somewhere

  • Joseph,

    By "every single set of drivers," do you mean any and all drivers, or just video drivers? How, exactly, does Windows 7 "kick out the install"?

  • You probably already tried this... but if not, give it a go...  http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk

    Choose "Option 2:  Automatically find drivers for my NVIDIA products."

    The other thing to try would be to remove your Nvidia drivers altogether and reboot. I think Windows should automatically get the correct drivers for your card via Windows Update after the reboot.

  • Raestloz,
     I thought I stated that;but,  I am running Windows 7 RC 64-bit. I usually DON'T touch their(NVIDIA) BETAS'...  Due, to the "fact" that it is a "beta". And, also that from experience with NVIDIA's "beta's-- I stay clear. But, that's only just from my own experience with their beta versions.  I know I am running Windows 7 RC--trust me. I verifiy--everything(completely), prior to "doing" any thing--with "any" program" I am trying to work with, or try to "bug fix".
                                                      That's just the way I am...  But, thanks for the input.

    Just to be clear.  This means that you have NOT tried the BETA drivers?
