Graphics card driver keeps uninstalling

Quite often the grphics driver un-installs itself,the drivers disc wont fix it the driver is an nvida 6600 i think but at the moment it has a generic? driver.
the only way i can get it back to some readable graphics is to install vista home basic , go through the motions and when it says the system is incompatable and will shut down i let it shut down remove the vista disc and start it up again and bingo back in all it's glory, it's ok for awhile and then it goes again.
any ideas please i have had enough of it and want to sell

  • Michael J'arlette-Joy Aug 20, 2008

    I have done a clean install as there was nothing worth saving and it is still the same.

    I am not trying to install vista, sorry i was trying to install vista(out of desperation) but it said it was not compatible with the laptop,so when i re-started it the system was back to normal and exactly the right size,now the screen has gone big again after it was ok for a week, ie;640x480 on a 17" screen when i checked in the device manager the "other devices" has a question mark against it and also these other one's

    - ?other devices

    ? modem device on high definition audio bus

    ? network controller

    ? video controller (vga compatible)

    all the other drivers are there.

    I have just tried to download lavasoft but again when i click on it the internet page disappears.

    It's back to you easyq

  • Michael J'arlette-Joy Aug 20, 2008

    OK i am on my main comp now and i will download it from here onto a memory stick and let you know in about 1HR if your still around chow WF

  • Michael J'arlette-Joy Aug 20, 2008

    OK

    easyq i have installed the program and it gives the PCI/AGP VIDIO driver as nvidia geoforce 6800

    WINDOWS VIDIO has nothing registered

    MONITER has nothing registered

    AM I DOING THE RIGHT THING!!

  • Michael J'arlette-Joy Aug 22, 2008

    hi,easyq, no it didnot work, it said i had the latest drivers but i got bored last night and did the vista thing and now it is back to normal again, the only problem now is trying to keep it this way, do you think i should still do the download for the latest version.

    whak, back to you esyq

OK first of all, graphics card driver can intact UN install hemselvea. The other Guy that said they couldn't was wrong and spoke out of turn. I am in fact a licenced computer tech, and one of my computers is intact having the same issue. The drivers keep UN installing them selves and the I get the BSOD. I have the latest drivers from Nvidia. Still no solution to this. I believe it has something to do with old dump files having some active code that the system can still read. Look into it my Friend. And good luck.

Strange, first of all, before you do anythign else, create a restore point. If anything goes wrong, you simply restore from here. Now you got it working, try ro tun some antivirus and antspyware software on it, probably the result will be not muc, but at least you are sure nothing is there. Also, what exactly did you do by doing the vista thing, as it seems something is updating/upgrading some drivers solving the problem.

Drivers cannot uninstall themselves, there will mostlikely be something else wrong.
First i suggest to run a proper anitvirusscan on your entire drive, than perform a mallware scan (using addaware, downloadable via www.lavasoft.com) and delete or quarantine all infected files.

after that, download and install this file:
http://www.brothersoft.com/everest-home-edition-61488.html
it will tell you exactly which graphics card you have and which drivers are installed. Also check the monitor settings and see if there are updated drivers available and if the correct drivers are installed, this could be casing windows to use different drivers than the correct one.

Please let me know if this solved your problem.

    I think your problem is not a graphical issue but a software issue. As long as you are unable to download any files because pages close, i think the best thing to do is save all your data on a separate partition of your HD on a backupdevice and make a clean reinstall, than download the file and start downloading and updating all drivers.

    Before you start doing this, are you sure your laptop is Vista complient?

    The problem is most likely the video controller which doesnot hav ethe correct drivers and therefor cannot display correctly. Is there anyway you can download on a different location or other PC so you can download the everest file? Than put it on a USB stick in order to get to know all details about your laptop and download the correct drivers (again from that other PC/location) so at least your screensize problem would be solved.

    If you do have acces to your email, drop me a line at dutchie at isknetter.nl so i can send you the everest file via email (remove spaces and at is ofcourse @).

    OK, you are doing the right thing, download and install the Nvidia 6800 drivers for XP again, make sure you download the latest version from the nvidia site.

    Than, note your motherboard brand and model, visit the manufacturers site and download all drivers for XP and install them one by one (mostly after each install you have to reboot, do it, do not first install all drivers and than restart, to avoid things going wrong).
    Let me know if it worked.

1720 s.m.a.r.t HDD detects imminent failure the computer cant boot-up.


if you haven't got a good back up, external to the hard drive, it may be too late
dead hard drives are mostly un recoverable
take it to a computer repair shop to make sure that it is not a boot problem
if the hard drive is failing, replace it with a solid state hard drive that has no spinning discs to fail

Screeen is upside down


If you have a Windows OS, press and hold the ALT and CTRL (control) keys and then press the Up arrow. (If that doesn't work, try holding the Alt and CTRL keys and pressing the left (or right) arrow key twice.) If that fails, right click on the desktop (Windows+D will minimize all programs), anywhere with no running programs or icons. Then select the Screen Resolution option. Look for the line Orientation; use the drop down menu to select the correct orientation. Click Apply and then confirm the setting change if a confirmation window pops up. (This works in Windows 7 and 8.) For older Windows versions on laptops, you may need to select Graphics Properties (or a similar line) and then repeat this. The Windows screen rotation option is dependent on your video card. With some models, you'll need to open the graphics card properties to undo the rotation. You should see a line for the graphics adapter when you right click on the Display.

For Macintosh OS, make sure that the System Preferences is closed. Then open it by pressing Option/alt + CMD . Select the line Display. Find the button labeled Rotation: Standard then choose the correct screen orientation.

I hope this helps.

I had a similar problem and I had to "Delete Volume" when in DIsk Management. I then had a choice to "Create Simple Volume" which I did, and then a wizard created the correct partitions and assigned a drive letter to my external drive. Everything was them OK.

No disc problem


You would only receive that error if your player in unable to read your disc, basically saying there is no disc in the unit. This problem arises mainly due to the Optical Pickup(laser) probably failing. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

How do I start bluetooth on the qosmio g25-av13?


Try the ff:

1. Are you also using a wireless internet? If you are and you cannot also connect on wireless, make sure that the wireless is enabled on your laptop. On the left side of the laptop there is a on/off switch push the switch to on. (beside the usb port).

2. if it is already on, make sure that the bluetooth is enabled also, you can check it on control panel, system, hardware, device manager, bluetooth, right click on bluetooth driver, if you see enable bluetooth click on it, if you see"disable bluetooth" that means it is already enabled.

3. If the above is already configured, lastly, look for the bluetooth icon (bluetooth manager) on the lower part of the screen on the taskbar/tray if you see the bluetooth icon, right-click on it then click "Enable Bluetooth Radio". Now, if there is no bluetooth icon on the tray at the lower right of the screen, go to Start, Toshiba, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Settings, inside the Bluetooth SEttings, click on Bluetooth, Options, CLick on Enable Bluetooth Power, also, inside the Tray Icon (still inside Bluetooth Settings) select an icon so you can always see the status of your bluetooth on the Tray and you don;t need to do and check everything everytime you cannot connect via Bluetooth.

Hope this helps.
