Hi r4remiz,
There are a few reasons you are receiving this message.
One, the bios is not set to boot to the Nvidia AGP card.
(I'll need your motherboard manufactures name & model No# of the motherboard). (I'll use this information to download the manual for the MB & check the bios settings).
Two, the AGP card is not completely seated. The fact that you have display tells me the motherboard is most likely using the onboard VGA card instead of the AGP card. Hence when you tried to update your AGP card windows did not see the Nvidia graphics card & there for could not install the software.
Check your manual for the MB. Boot to the bios. Look for VGA settings & check if its set to PCI. If so you want to change it to boot AGP. If you find this has not helped, include the information I need & post it here. I should be able to help you solve this.

Good luck r4remiz!
Thank you for using fixya.
Mike

Download drivers for GF8400GS 1024M graphic card


Is this a retail card or did it come pre-installed in your computer?
This one is common I believe in HP and Sony Units, and I am not sure if the reference nvidia drivers are going to work.
You can always try it, (visit nvidia.com and click on the find drivers button, then enter your product and version of windows)
IF you get a warning that a supported device was not found, then visit the HP (or whatever make you have) to get drivers from them. They aren't as good as updating drivers as nvidia or ATI would be but they should still work.

Gt nvidia 512 ddr3 graphic card not detected by my mother bord


If I were you I'd try to insert another geaphics card in the mobo, if it does detect that one the graphics card is broken, if it doesn't try updating bios.
If that doesn't help either, the mobo has failed.

You can try to contact the manufacturer of the broken art, see if they have any tips, but I guess broken is broken.

Sorry,
Yannick.

Nvidia geforce 8800 gts code 43 due to vista home premium


Well if you installed the correct drivers for your video card and have the proper power supply requirements, then the vertical lines you're getting most likely indicate that your video card is bad.

Try it in another computer if available, or get another video card.

Problem When Updating


First, where are you getting your updated driver? If you go to Nvidia's web site, their driver pack I belive is digitally signed (and will support a large number of different cards). Be sure and get the latest driver from http://www.nvidia.com.

If the driver can not detect the actual hardware when it tries to install, there is a few things that can cause that. If your motherboard drivers are not correct, it can not detect hardware connected through the various expansion slots. For example, PCI devices may not be identified correctly if the PCI bridge drivers are not in place. Windows has some generic drivers it uses, but your motherboard may require specific drivers to handle cards properly.

First, I would find the web site of your motherboard manufacturer, and find the chipset drivers for the specific model of your motherboard. Even if you have done this already, it wouldn't hurt to see if there are updated drivers that may solve your specific problem.

Second, look for yellow question marks in your device manager. (one way to get there is to right-click on My Computer, select the bottom option - Properties, in the System Properties window that pops up - select the Hardware tab, then click on Device Manager). These are devices that Windows is clueless about. One is liable to be your display adapter. Find drivers for any other question marked items.

Third, go to Nvidia's web site and download the driver. I just looked, and it is not in their driver pack, but is listed under the legacy drivers (when selecting Product Type). For XP, there is a ForceWare Release 90 WHQL (version 93.71) and a beta version (ver 93.81). The WHQL version should be digitally signed, but not sure about the beta. Both of these are from 2006. There are no drivers for Vista.

If it still reports there is no Nvidia hardware, then there may be either some corruption/virus problems with the operating system, or actual hardware failure (bad card, etc). I would doubt bad hardware if you are already using it. If all else fails you could back up your data and try reinstalling the operating system. But that would be a last resort only. And a real pain.

Try cooling it by leaving the casing open and pointing a fan into the computer. If that does not solve the problem try the graphics adapter on another computer that should effectively isolate the problem so that you can see if the graphics card is shot or not.

Its the AGP slot where its in most likely. IF there iw weird stuff on the screen when running 3d apps that can either be a hardware problem or a driver problem. Try updating the drivers first. Most likely the problem is not hardware yet.

Did you try installing and updating the driver of the graphics card dedicated to the operating system "VISTA" ? Sometimes there is some difference between vista's driver and XP's driver.
