    Downloaded the latest Nvidia Driver (178.24_geforce_winxp_32bit_english_whql) and installed it, prior to reporting this issue. But just in case I didn\'t get a good installation, I tried the Nvidia Driver Installation again. During the installation process I got the following error messages.

    Error in C:\WINDOWS\sytem32\NvCpl.dll
    Missing entry: NvStartup"

    Error in C:\WINDOWS\sytem32\NVCPL.dll
    Missing entry: ExportOEMDefaults"

    What do you suggest now???

It may be worth running a checkdisk just in case there's a little corruption on your HDD.

While researching your problem online I found this:

You can also use regedit to remove the reported error:
In the Run folder you will be looking for a value that resembles the startup error you are receiving, such as:
NvCplDaemon RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINNT\system32\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup
Right click on it and select Delete. Close the Registry Editor and you're done.

I'd suggest having a look here too:

What version of Windows are you using? There are issues with some 64bit drivers

Good luck :)

Those errors are happening in the Nvidia driver software. First, I would try re-installing the drivers for the card. Make sure you use the driver package that matches your version of Windows (Vista, XP, etc). If that doesn't work, try installing the latest version of drivers. They are available here:

Use the menu to select your video card (GeForce 6 Series), and your OS. Drivers are updated almost constantly by Nvidia, so it can't hurt to check ever so often.

Also, some games (Bookworm is one of them) use a lower resolution video than you are probably running, and this will cause problems with some systems (it runs on my Vista system, but not well, and messes up the video enough that I have to reboot after playing it).

If this doesn't do the trick, let me know, and we can take a more detailed look at how your graphics card is interfacing with Windows.

    Okay... this should work, for at least one of the errors:

    Go to Start > Run > Msconfig > Startup tab, and just uncheck the line

    NvCplDaemon = RUNDLL32.EXE c:\windows\SYSTEM\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup

    Click OK, and reboot.

Where can I find a driver/adapter for Advent X19W LCD Monitor?

Goto device manager , uninstall the card. go into control panel and check that the driver is uninstalled from the programs list. Swich of the pc for a minute or two then reboot Windows updares does not download drivers for graphics cards so will not install or reinstall the driver that is causing the issue, 307? Users forget to uninstall from program manger in control panel which is why the card keeps reinstalling with the undesired driver.
Please let me know what happens

We reinstalled Windows and now there is no "Display Adapter" in the device manger listing and the display is not right. I think we are missing a driver for Nvidia GE Force 6200 turbo cache card....

Please check if you have an onboard display card and the NVDIA GEforce card, this situation can hapen when you connect your monitor to the onboard card instead of the NVidia card and try to install the driver for NVIDIA card.

Connect it back to the NVIDIA display card and once again install the downloaded driver, it should identify the device and install fine.

I have a Dell Vostro 400 and two video cards. Only one card will work and it is an Nvidia GeForce FX 5200.The other one is an ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO. These are the specs from the two graphics cards:...

you cant join two different platform vga cards. simply because they have their own platform and have separate drivers, so they conflict each other thus causing one of them shut off or disable..

No color Red, Dell XPS 400, NVIDIA GeForce 7300 LE video card


I would recommend for you to try different monitor, so that you can isolate the problem.

If same problem occur, try to plug in your video card into another PCI slot in your computer. Cleaning the gold fingers of the video card with a clean cotton cloth might help.

Use a blower to remove some dust on the PCI slot.

Or try inserting the video card in another computer. If you get the same problem on another computer, you need to replace the card.

Good luck!

Palit Geforce 8800gt 1Gig Glitches + BSOD

Nvidia's recommendations for the 8800GT are 26 Amps (I think) on the 12V rail... Although you would think 20 Amps would be enough, my next step would be to uninstall the video card driver again, get yourself a copy of a program called Driver Cleaner dot net, run the program in safe mode to completely remove all of the Nvidia driver, then reboot into Windows, download the latest WHQL driver for your card from nvidia's website, and see if that fixes it. If not, either try the card in a system with a more powerful power supply, or get a more powerful power supply, and see if your error goes away.
