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
You should enter Bios setup when restarting and check that it says AGP or PCI for video display. You can then go to Start then Run and type in msconfig. Go through the list for the startup menu and make sure that NVIDIA is displayed with a checkmark. When you installed the new driver, also make sure that you disabled the default VGA driver too. You may have to check that out. If both are running there will be conflict. Any questions, please don't hesitate.
Select "Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced)"
Select "Display Adapters" and click Next
Click the "Have Disk..." button
Navigate to the path where you extracted the Intel drivers. The *.inf file will be in the Win2000 folder
IMPORTANT: Do not select the 82852/82855 GM/GME drivers, select the 945GM driver (yes, this is counter-intuitive)
If prompted to reboot, DO NOT REBOOT
If told the 945 device might not work right, acknowlege the error, then run Action > Scan for Hardware Changes
82852/82855 GM/GME Graphics Controllers" and a "Mobile Intel(R) 945GM
Express Chipset Family" devices should now be listed under "Display
Disable the 945GM device
Verify the Video Driver Installation
Upon rebooting, Windows 7 may roll back one or more of your display devices to Standard VGA
Open Device Manager
Check the Display Adapters
there is only one 82852/82855 GM/GME device, or if there is a new
"unknown" device, precisely repeat the above driver installation
section (include the instructions for disabling the 945GM device); in
the case of an unknown device, run the "Update Driver" action for that
device instead of running the generic "Add Legacy Hardware"
everything is working, you should have "Graphics Properties" and
"Graphics Options" menu items in the pop-up menu when you right-click
on the desktop
The "Graphics Option" item should have sub-items for display rotation
Reboot and verify that Windows 7 no longer rolls back your display drivers after rebooting
Protect the Video Driver Installation
Go to Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Update
Windows will likely tell you that an important update is available
Click the "important update is available" link (do NOT click "Install updates")
Right-click on the "Intel Corporation - Display - Mobile Intel(R) 945 Express Chipset Family" update
Click "Hide update" from the context menu
the display driver gets updated to what is currently on Windows Update,
the system will revert back to the Standard VGA driver.
When using a driver install hack different from the method described
here, I have read reports that a system might Blue Screen when using
Windows Media Player to play DVD's; however, alternate media players,
such as VLC, reportedly do not exhibit this issue. I do not know if
this method will have this same problem, but I thought I would mention
this workaround in case someone does experience this issue."
hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? Friend if the video asks to install compatible drivers. it means that the driver installed dont work with the video card. to solve this install the video driver cd package with your video card.and reboot you pc after.the software driver will automatically updates your video to high and fine resolution.so try to do it. thats all friend good lcuk hope i helped you.
Check bios settings. ie. disable onboard video, enable PNP OS installed, enable "assign IRQ to vga", disable shadowing and caching, enable passive release, enable delayed transaction, vga boot sequence: AGP, set graphics aperture size to 128MB, disable turbo modes.
Verify power supply is at least 350 watts.
Reboot into safe mode (press F8 right after the BIOS POST screen and before the windows loading screen) and use the program, Driver Cleaner Pro to remove Nvidia video driver remnants. Don't select all of the options, just the Nvidia driver and the plain ATI selection.
Verify the monitor cable is securely connected to both the monitor and the computer.
Verify that you have connected the cable to the vga port on the card and not the onboard vga port. (I'm not implying that you are dumb or anything like that, but sometimes even the best of us, overlooks the simple things... especially me! LOL)
Verify the monitor cable is good.
(Last but not least), try using another monitor to test. (Could be an incompatibility with the monitor.)
