Hello i normally try and figure this stuff out myself but this time i cant see to get it.

My problem is every time i go to install a driver update for my graphics card the installer always fails ive been googling lots of different things and i have found some information. Ive gone and used driversweeper already to remove all the old drivers and i still have the problem on one post a guy mention downloading gpu-z to see if it was registering using this other guys card when i looked at it it doesnt seem to be for mine im kinda clueless now and i would appreciate any help i can get .

Hi,

I would try and do a clean install of the driver. To do this, click the setup.exe for the Nvidia driver, and when it opens up, select the manual install option. Before clicking on the next button, just under the window pane, there is a tickbox for doing a 'clean install' which removes your old drivers and installs the new set. Give it a try and see how you get on.

tried that already doesnt work
 


Is it all drivers, or just the latest 320's? Maybe try a previous one!?

ya its all of them
 


hmmm, not sure what that could be. Just to rule out the other obvious thing, maybe try and reseat the GFX card. Before you put the card back in maybe blow out the PCI slot with compressed air, then reseat. But being honest I don't think that's the problem. If windows picks up the card, then its most likely not the PCI slot or the GPU not being installed correctly.

How did you get to the registry?
Do you mean regedit by registry? If the answer is yes then how did you get to display drivers?
