I can't install the Display Card most recent driver!
My computer was Windows Millenium, and i installed XP in a blank HD.
I need to install drivers again so, I downloaded from the NVIDIA site the most recent driver for my display card, then i started the setup. The setup goes along till it comes a message (saying ''error''). The message says: ''NVIDIA configuration program did not detected compatible controllers with the current hardware. Configuration program will end now.''
In NVIDIA's site there is an automatic driver detector, so im sure that this is the driver for my display card.
In the device manager, before the display card's name, there is a yellow question mark too, which is saying ''this device canot start (code 10)''.
I really don't know whats the problem, I hope you people can help.

Re: I can't install the Display Card most recent driver!
You will get "this device cannot start" when there is no driver loaded for that device. NVidia's automatic search is still only a beta, and still may have a few kinks in it. I would manually search for your card in NVidia's download driver section. I would also make sure that your graphics card is seated properly in the motherboard, just take it out, and put it back in if you're not sure.
Reboot your system, and open your BIOS settings. Go through the settings and make sure that you have the Primary Display set to the right settings, depending on the card you are using (PCI, AGP, PCI/E). If you have an onboard VGA port, you may also be able to disable the OnBoard VGA.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-winvista-32bit-285.62-whql-driver.html this is teh driver you need (windows 7 ) If you need it for windows xp ..you have to select the os first . Also if you need it for a 64 system select it ..and install it after download. Use the hdmi for to have a hd image ..and select the correct port in the monitor .. restart after finish the driver installation .and make the settings after..Also check the board in device manager to be proper installed (right click on computer icon ..select properties than device manager (for xp select first hardware ) ..and in helist look under display ..and the driver should be present by name and not with yellow color and exclamation or ask sign .. Also it may need some settings in the video card ..so open the settings for video card in control panel and look up for what should be set ..specially related with the secondary monitor and the hd mode..
for which Operating System? 98se and millenium edition are obsolete. win xp pro and above are still good. what device are you having problems with? usb? sound card? video card? or other device? or is it just missing some DLL files from the operating system? there is also another issue with win xp pro and srv pak 3 it forces the only "signed drivers only" to be installed!! therefore if you have srv pack 3 installed then you will need to to the computer to install any ways. windows 7 will not install "un-signed device drivers" this makes most your devices incompatible with win 7!! there is another with windows systems up-grades that do not include any kind of driver support except for basic motherboard devices and limited sound cards and video cards and usb port support. you may want to check your computer maker for any device drivers for the last 3 years only and if it was a device that came with your computer.
It sounds like a driver/software issue. When you ran the Princeton VL173 on XP you probably had all the correct software for your video card and the correct drivers to support your video output. When you changes OS to Windows 7, the XP drivers are no longer in place. My best guess is that you need to find and install the correct drivers for your system video and for your video card that are Windows 7 compatible. The old XP drivers will not work in Windows 7.
I am running XP with a Princeton VL173. It works great. I identified the correct video drivers for my system and installed them. My video card is nVidia 8800GT. I downloaded and installed the latest software from nVidia and installed it. It runs like a champ.
Several months ago my display died. It was just blank -- black. I tried using a power supply (AC adapter) from an old HP printer that died, and it worked! The plugs were identical, and the power output profiles were very nearly identical. It has been rinnung great for many months now.
Try to boot into VGA mode by hitting F8 as soon as POST boot screen has disappeared. If there is a possibility to uninstall through Add/Remove programs, do so. If not, then go to Device Manager and uninstall the driver there. Reboot and let Windows detect the device for itself. If it finds a driver by itself, let it install.
I believe you would need to install the Serial ATA card driver before installing windows. When you first start Xp it asks if you have any ATA drivers that need to be installed first. My guess,since it is used, that you have not the driver for that card? Give us the make and model of that card and we can help look for the driver,or take it out all together and use an IDE hard drive.
you need to to check the display settings and the system requirement before installing and running the game

Configuration may require minor adjustments to the configuration of
your operating system and/or updates to hardware component drivers Notice: This game contains technology to prevent copying that may conflict with some disk and virtual drives.
Did you recently change or install a program that would affect the resolution and card output? Try booting into safe mode by holding the "shift" key during boot. From there right-click on the desktop and hit 'properties'-> 'display properties' -> 'settings' , check your resolution and drop it to 800x600 and then reboot. If everything goes back in normally make sure you have the right windows drivers for your video card. You can also check the driver version and settings while you're in safe mode. Sometimes the windows update drivers can act screwy and I would recommend getting them directly from your card manufacturer.
