Geforce 7900 driver problem.

I have a geforce 7900, I'm not sure which model. I have had it for years, it has always worked perfectly. I recently reinstalled windows xp on my desktop and when I went to reinstall the driver for it, it makes the quality (resolution) very very low (800x600) and everything becomes very grainy, almost is if there is wayy too much contrast to everything. It will not allow me to change my resolution settings either even though it asks if I would like windows to do it for me because the settings are so low. It won't even fix itself. I have gone into device manager and uninstalled the driver and then reinstalled it several times.. but still the same thing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I used that website to install the chipset drivers for my Intel D946GZIS motherboard.

    It shuts down every time saying "Intel Chipset Device Software installer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

    >,< what now? o.0

    Successfully install chipset drivers thanks to you but that didn't help. Once I reinstalled driver I had the same problem.

    Then I found a different site and downloaded an outdated driver from 2006 (as you recommended) Fixed EVERYTHING! Works perfectly all thanks to you!! 5 Stars! "FixYa!" rating!

    Now, thanks to you and FixYa, I have proper updated drivers and everything runs smoother than ever!

    I only wish I could give you a higher rating... Thank you so much for helping solve this irritating problem and good luck to you in the future!!

Hi,

If re-installing the GeForce 7900 driver does not correct the problem it may be because you need to install first the AGP port driver of the motherboard. In some motherboards, this is part of the chipset. In the case of VIA chipsets, the AGP driver (not the video card) is part of the 4 in 1 driver set.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    The same also holds true for Intel chipset motherboards. Incidentally:


    • Intel has ChipUtil that is meant to determine/verify the actual chipset used in the motherboard;

    • Intel has infinst_enu.exe that is meant to update/inform the OS how to handle the chipset used in the motherboard including the AGP port;

    • Intel has Intel App Accelerator Driver.zip that is meant to update/inform the OS how applications would best be run.
    With all of these in mind, again perhaps your best bet is to find out the chipset driver for the D946GZIS motherboard, download and install. Additionally, it may be to your advantage to install an older version of the NVidia driver such as the 56.72 or any of the 2006 dated drivers.

Hey, I'm trying to play World of Goo, but after


Yeah, with World of Goo especially, sometimes having previous drivers makes them playable.

Try installing these drivers and see if that helps.

Good luck!

BFG GeForce 7900 GTO/PCI-E 16


well firstly this card is not direct x 10. I'd say get a new card, the geforce 9600gt is a good performer for the price or an ati 4850 which is a bit more expensive

Graphics Card Driver Trouble


did you try to update driver from device manager or uninstall drivers from there this could be where problem lies as device manager removes all parts of driver other programs may not remove all parts even though they say so
