I don't know where you got your drivers but , if you don't have a cd you can get them here;
Pick your o/s and you will want the latest"VGA" and in utilities yu will want Smart Doctor and Gamer OSD.

    I have given you this info in case you don't have a cd or , if you do and loading off cd gave you an error then you will want to get your driver from Asus or Nvidia.

    This is Nvidia's download site which would probably be your best place to get your "vga" driver. If you want to contact me do so at "add a comment"

  • David Petry Apr 07, 2011

    If you choose to get your drivers this way you have to uninstall all Asus software prior to installing new. In programs and features you would uninstall Nvidia software, Asus software, the Smart Doctor and, Gamer OSD. then restart. Get your drivers starting with VGA driver, because utilities won't install before VGA. This should get you going. Make suere all your connection are good. Double check you power lead.

    If you had a card before that was Asus or Nvidia and didn't uninstall prior software, this also could have caused your error.

Hello there, I am the Expert that will be helping you today, my name in damnor01.

Welcome to Fixya.

Use my published guide, it is entitled How to install Graphics Drivers, Nvidia and AMD Radeon!!!

You need to download the drivers for your Nvidia based Graphics Card.

Ensure that the card is installed in the PC-Express 16X slot closest to the Processor.
Install as many fans as your computer chassis allows, use 120mm fans if you can. I recommend a power supply of at least 550Watts for this Graphics card. Cooler Maser Extreme Power Plus will work well.

The problems you are experiencing are most likely driver related.
Install Direct X versions 9.0c and 10 and 11
You must install them all.
