I've tried like 6 different drivers, all of which should've worked, yet they all fail, and they don't give any error code, just that they fail. I've used the Windwos driver updater, Geforce Experience, and even just the driver exe files and nothinh. I do get this log however which seems to be from that.
Code:

Have you tried the GPU in another PC to see if it gets same problems?

Often if drivers fail to install the problem is the card itself

what is showing in DXDiag? Does PC recognise GPU? What card do you have?

Tried it in my main pc and it worked, the card is a Quadro 2000 and in device manager it's just under "other devices" as an "unknown device", but I am stil connected to it and it is sending a signal. Where can I find DXDiag?
 
msi installers usually leave a real log under the users %temp% location. see if you can dig those up and post them, I will have a look at the installer log, what you have shown is not the logs I am talking about.

Where is it exactly? Can't seem to find it.
 
ok... do this:

  1. Open Windows Explorer
  2. in the address bar type the following: %temp% and then press the Enter key
  3. You are now in the users TEMP location
  4. look for files that end in .txt and .log
  5. See if they are named, like nvidia*.log or whatever, if not you need to pick though them one by one with Notepad until you find the ones where the name of the install files matches what you were installing.
  6. post a link to it
