Sounds like either the wrong driver was loaded or the file was corrupt?

Try a restore to roll back the driver installation

Start, programs, Accessories, System Tools, System restore

Select "restore my computer to an earlier time" and then CONTINUE

In the calander find the entry that refers to installing the driver or one prior to that time and select it and press NEXT.

If you were updating to resolve a problem, try a fresh d/l of the driver from the VGA card manufacturers site rather than from nVidia direct as they should have validated the driver.

make sure that the driver is for your card and OS EXACTLY.

If you were updating "just because" then I suggest you follow the First Rule of Engineering... If it aint broke, DONT fix it :-)

    Oh you may want to boot to SAFE mode (press F8 while booting before "starting windows" appears) then select system restore when prompted to do so

  • Dave Jul 03, 2008

    So have you uninstalled the driver now?



    Can you boot to safe mode ?



    please post back the model number of yor video card

I am formatted laptop and lost all the drivers


The best option is to install Windows XP and do all the windows update at www.microsoft.com. Install the SP2 update. This is should find most of the drivers. Also, websites like www.drivers.com provide driver updates.

VGA Driver Not Found for Asus X95GL WinXP 2002 Pro SP2


I think perhaps that should be X59GL.

The GL suffix suggests that the graphics chip is made by nVidia.

Please try downloading the GeForce for Notebooks driver for your relevant Operating System. You did not mention whether you run Windows XP, Windows Vista, or whether it is 32 bit or 64 bit - you need to know this.

If you check the System Properties in Control Panel, you should find this information.

Here is the driver download page:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook_drivers.html

I hope this solves your issue.

I can't find all the drivers for my desktop. I downgraded from vista to windows xp, I have a HP Pavilion a6230n PC can you help me out?


This system uses an nVidia MCP61 chipset and the nVidia site has the drivers for it. I needed to download the motherboard set to get the ethernet adapter to work. After I installed the motherboard set, Windows update was able to locate and install the rest of the drivers needed for XP on this beast.

Windows XP SP2, Intel DG965WH mobo. Two SATA hard drives, two EIDE hard drives (WD200EB). Suddenly one day, without warning, the two EIDE drives just disappeared from the Hard Disk Drive list and files...


the problem sounds like you either lost the IDE channels on the MOBO or the chipset was updated with corrupt files.

run everest home and see if there are current updates for the northbridge chipset. if you have 2 ide channels on the board switch the primary and secondary ribbons and see if the hard drives are there. if your cdrom's are ide and after switching ribbon cables they disappear and the hard drives reappear your mobo lost an ide channel, you would need to replace the board.
