Desktop does not show when I installed nvidia drivers!


I'm doing a Windows 7 reinstall on my 8700 and have a GT635 graphics card. The video driver on the Dell website is version 311.47. But my 8700 came from Dell with an Nvidia driver of 331.82 on it. Dell put the 331.82 on my system, but does not have it available in the driver download section. So if I use the Dell website version, it will be lower than what Dell put on my system when I bought it. Should I go with the 311.47 that Dell offers, or should I download 331.82 from Nvidia to match what Dell had on there originally?

The Nvidia website does not specifically say the 331.82 is for GT635, since the GT635 is OEM. Nvidia says the driver is for GT630, GT640, and other 600 series. But Dell did install 331.82 on my machine...

Do you encounter an error message on your computer whenever you try to install new NVIDIA drivers onto your machine? This article will help you solve this frustrating issue that deals with GPU drivers. Below are some helpful tips that you can use to try to correct the problem concerning your NVIDIA driver on Windows 10.

Initial Steps to Take When NVIDIA Drivers Fail to Update

The first thing that you need to do is to download the correct driver modules from the NVIDIA website itself. Failing to do so will result in not being able to push through with the installation effectively. Download the NVIDIA drivers from here. If you experience problems downloading from the link above, here are some of the steps that you should take to ensure successful resolution.
Before downloading the drivers, make sure that all antivirus software or firewalls are turned off. Why do you have to do this? Because some antivirus programs tend to block significant driver files. To...

I have a GTX780 and a new driver is ready. I try to install but can not because (it says) I need to install an Intel driver. Ths is news to me because when I installed an Nvidia driver in March it didn't ask for an Intel driver. But now it does. This is a problem.
I have an HD 4000 on my mobo but I could never get it to work along side my 780 so it's not installed. SO now I can not update the Nvidia driver.
I tried installing the Intel driver but all I got was a black screen and a Windows did not start properly error.
So I ask. Why has nvidia changed their driver installation? Before I didn't need the HD4000 working but now I do (this is on a desktop PC not a laptop). I've tried changing the display option in my BIOS by choosing PCI-E but I still get the Windows error. And the Intel HD4000 VGA driver came from the Asus site of my Mobo. WHat's going on? Right now I am stuck on a driver I can no longer update. Any solutions would be greatly...

This GUIDE was published in Aug. 2011 (and is now OUTDATED and on Legacy status)
The "NEW" updated 2013 Nvidia Guide is located

*this has no become OUTDATED and will no longer work correctly with Windows and Nvidia driversets

It should ONLY be used for older legacy systems running Nvidia drivers PRIOR to 260.xx




Due to the significant changes in Nvidia driver packages over the last year and the surrounding confusion in how these changes have effected installing and uninstalling Nvidia Drivers, a clear outline of what those changes are and how it effects users has become extremely important.
This guide is intended to help both novice and experienced users understand how Nvidia drivers have changed their install and uninstall behavior when using Windows and what those changes...

Not sure if anyone else has had this problem, but I have found that sometimes there is not enough kernel memory to load the nvidia kernel module. In this case the system just hangs when trying to load X even when all of the nvidia configuration is correct.

In this situation the xorg log (/var/log/Xorg.0.log) shows:

(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI:1:0:0. Please
(EE) NVIDIA(0): check your systm's kernel log for additional error
(EE) NVIDIA(0): messages and refer to Chapter 8: Common Problems in the
(EE) NVIDIA(0): README for additional information.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device!
(EE) Screens(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

I have a TV card installed on my machine and the combination of nvidia and that card seems to cause problems with kernel memory (this has been a problem on other systems too like my Thinkpad T410). I was able to get my machine to...

Whew, I know that’s a long title for a post, but I wanted to make sure that I mentioned every term so that people having the same problem could readily find the post that explains what solved it for me. For some time now (ever since the 346.x series [340.76, which was the last driver that worked for me, was released on 27 January 2015]), I have had a problem with the NVIDIA Linux Display Drivers (known as nvidia-drivers in Gentoo Linux). The problem that I’ve experienced is that the newer drivers would, upon starting an X session, immediately clock up to Performance Level 2 or 3 within PowerMizer.

Before using these newer drivers, the Performance Level would only increase when it was really required (3D rendering, HD video playback, et...

Hi, i'm having problems installing the latest Nvidia drivers (368.39-desktop-win10-64bit-international-whql) for my newly bought GTX 1070 FE.

I have Windows 10 Home 64 bits.

Up to now, i had 2 Radeon 6950 in CF. I uninstalled all AMD/ATI drivers and folders in my machine, as indicated here. I then unplugged the radeons, plugged in the 1070, and i get POST, i get into Windows, but when i try to install the Nvidia drivers i get from the installer an error message that says "This NVIDIA graphics driver is not compatible with this version of Windows" (i'm translating from Spanish, exact wording in English might differ).

So the Device manager only shows a "Basic Microsoft display adapter", and GPU-Z only recognizes some of the features of the card:

Would anybody know how to solve this problem? Thanks in...

Nvidia drivers

If you have an Nvidia graphics card on your system, then its recommended to install the official drivers provided by Nvidia. The proprietory drivers would utilise the hardware properly delivering full performance.

Installation is pretty easy and it uses a ppa repository. So you do not need to compile anything. However, make sure to follow the steps properly.

These steps would work on Ubuntu and close derivatives like Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu and also Linux Mint and Elementary OS.

1. Find out your graphics card model

Use the lspci command to find out the model of your graphics card

$ lspci -vnn | grep -i VGA -A 12 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GT218 [GeForce 210] [10de:0a65] (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device [1043:8416]

Here its GeForce 210

2. Find out the right driver version for your graphics card

Install CUDA using the following command:

$ sudo yum install cuda-toolkit-9-1 \ xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs nvidia-kmod

If the system is using a non-NVIDIA GPU to render the display, remove the files at /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /usr/lib64/nvidia/xorg/, and remove the nomodeset kernel parameter from the boot command-line.

Follow the instructions here to ensure that Nouveau is disabled.
