I switched out my old card, XFX Radeon HD6850 for a MSI Geforce GTX 750Ti.
I was very excited. I continued to turn off my rig, unplugged all the connectors from my computer, (mouse, keyboard, etc) and of course, turned my CPU to OFF, before disconnecting it from my computer. I began to install the GTX750ti on a safe table, on tile, wearing rubber slippers (lol). Installation was a breeze. I then reconnected everything back in to my computer rig... more or less a "gaming rig", if you will. I pushed the power switch, everything was going smooth so far, until it booted up my desktop screen. The resolution was set at a different setting, so i set it back to 1920x1080. Windows Aero feature also wasn't working. I can't change the transparency, the color, nothing except the wallpaper. Now, i'm stuck with this solid light blue ugly taskbar, but that's a story for another time, something about downloading a WDDM driver. Anyway, I Installed the
MSi Driver & Utility CD it came with as directed in the manual. System Check, License Agreement, Options were all green and checked. Until the installation stopped, and it tells me "Nvidia Installer failed"

It gives me a list:

PhysX System Software ver. 9.13.0927 status - Up to date
3D Vision Controller Driver ver. 332.17 status - Not Installed
HD Audio Driver ver. 1.3.290 status - Not Installed
Graphics Driver ver. 332.17 status - Failed
NVIDIA GeForce Experience ver. 1.8.1 status - Not Installed
3D Vision Driver ver. 332.17 status - Not Installed

I'm kind of frustrated and id really appreciate someones help out there as to what i can do. I thought the CD it came with contained everything I needed to start playing my favorite games.
Thanks

AMD FX-4100 (overclocked to 4200mhz)

The cd only has an outdated driver. Search "nvidia drivers" on google, go to their website, and download a more recent one straight from them. That may fix your issue, if not, come back and give an update.

In general, don't use the drivers on the CD for video cards (the official ones from Nvidia or AMD are usually better and more up to date).
* Try completely removing the Nvidia drivers from the system.
* Also remove any drivers and programs you installed from the CD.
* Then go to nvidia.com and download the latest drivers and install them.

See if that fixes it.
Note: it may be ok to install programs from the CD, however (just use, for the drivers, use the ones directly from Nvidia).
Also, you can go to MSI's website and download most of the stuff that was on the CD... and they might have newer versions of them.

The Nvidia Control Panel is no where to be found on the site. Maybe they deleted it?

The only thing I cant seem to delete is: Computer > Local Disk C: > Program Files > ATI Technologies.

I couldn't erase some of the ATI/AMD/Nvidia files, not even with Driver Sweeper. That was the last draw. I system rebooted my computer and reinstalled windows 7. seems unnecessary, but I was desperate to try out the new card!!! D:
Everything is going smooth now, went to geforce.com and updated my drivers.
thanks for everything guys
