Computer is "losing" updated Graphics driver
« on: July 19, 2011, 14:21:49 »

Hi

I updated my Graphics Driver to the latest version couple of days ago (first thing I did after setting it up)

The next day I went to play a game, and it came up with a message stating for best performance use the most up to date Driver - fair enough I knew that. when I checked the NVidia site, it gave me the same update link and said I had a older driver (the one on the disc that came with the card) so I updated it again...

today I went to play a game and got the same message :/

Why is it not saving the update?

Not sure if ti is related but the computer also has four Windows updates which it is refusing to install (these were before I updated the Graphics Card) - is this related?

Many Thanks,

TFM

Which version of windows are you using? 7? vista? XP?
I've had trouble with XP drivers when 7 came out, because for some reason nvida seemed to think that XP had simply dissapeared, but since i moved to 7 i've had no issues what so ever, well, apart from after i installed SS08 my computer bluescreens every now and again, but thats fixed.

I am on Vista

I even tried a custom instal selecting the "fresh driver install" of the New driver and it still didn;t work

it also has updates for NVidia Phsyx and a few others which sometimes fail to install (according to the finals tatus complete box when installing) at all... :/

Have you ran the install in "admin" mode?

OK - I have tried that

Somethings are not installing though:

Quote
NVidia Installer Failed:
NVidia Updater - Not Installed
PhysX System Software - Failed
3d Vision Controller Driver - Not Installed
HD Audio Driver - Not Installed
Graphics Driver - Installed
3d Vision Driver - Not Installed

So the only thing that has installed is the Graphics Driver...?

Will find out later if it has "stuck" or not though

Thanks :)

There are three updates though - do I want the VGA and/or the BIOS?
