Looking for a seven nvdia driver

Hello,

 

I bought a 0768-FFG model a few years ago, equiped with the GeForce 7300 and Vista Business 32b.

Last year I upgraded it to a Seven Home Premium 64b version but since then I always have the same problem : the display driver resets randomly. Windows gets automatically the 7.15.11.7967 driver.

So I try to reinstall the lenovo 7.15.11.6759 display driver but it failled and a message indicate it only works with Vista 32b.

 

Does someone have any idea to help me ?

Thanks

XSJ

Re: Looking for a seven nvdia driver

hi xsj,

 

Can you try to:

1. Temporarily Disable Windows Update

2. Stop Windows 7 automatically installing drivers

3. Open Control Panel (large icon view) > Programs & Feaures and uninstall the Nvidia Graphics Drivers (reboot if necessary)

4. Open Device Manager > Display Adapters > right click on the Nvidia Graphics > choose Uninstall (if applicable, put a check on Delete the driver software for this device) and reboot.

 

- Link to picture

 

5. Re-install the Nvidia Graphics Driver v179.48 BETA  above above and observe.

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

 

Regards

Re: Looking for a seven nvdia driver

Hi neokenchi,
I followed exactly the procedure but during the install of the driver 179.48 BETA I had a message in french I translated,
NVIDIA error installation: The installer has detected that the current operating system is not Windows Vista 32-bit/7 64-bit. This setup program and its drivers are designed to run only on Windows Vista 32-bit/7 64-bit. Aborting installation.
That’s much more annoying, isn’t it?
Hope you can help me more.
Regards,
XSJ

hi xsj,

 

If you're running Windows 7 32bit, try this driver:

Re: Looking for a seven nvdia driver

Hi neokenchi,

The problem is ...I'm running Windows 7 64bit.
Anyway the 32bit driver will not install too.
Waiting to see if you find a better solution, I reinstalled the 179.67 driver provided by Windows Update.
Any other idea?

Re: Looking for a seven nvdia driver

hi xsj,

 

It's odd that the drivers from the Nvidia website won't install too.

 

Here's the last two things that you could try:

1. Follow this guide on how to install the original Vista Drivers into Windows 7.

2. Refer to this tutorial on how to add Windows 7 support for the nvidia beta driver (see the Adding support for your GPU to the OS)

 

 

Regards

Re: Looking for a seven nvdia driver

Hi neokenchi,

Thanks for your follow-up.

Could you please reactivate the first link which doesn't work anymore...
Since I reinstalled the 179.67 driver, it seems better. Perhaps because we stopped the W7 automatically installing drivers ?

As you are an expert, I would like your opinion on a topic that asks me for a long time:
Is it necessary to clean the Windows registry?
Do you think this may cause malfunction such as those observed?
What do you think about utilities like CCleaner, are there other better ...Can you advise me what to do or not to do on this way ?

Regards,
XSJ

Re: Looking for a seven nvdia driver

hi xsj,

 

Here's the guide on the first link:

Install Vista Drivers on Windows 7

 

Good to hear your system is working ok now. It's possible that the system is detecting newer drivers, either thru Windows Update or in the preconfigured inf folder and disabling the automatic updating of drivers stopped it.

 

IMHO, doing a pc maintenance once in 3-4 months is a good practice. CCleaner is good freeware to cleanup the registry and temp files. When you uninstall programs, there are instances of leftover components so manually removing using CCleaner is a good way to keep the system clean.

 

 

Regards
