  1. Hey All,

    I have an xps 1710 and recently had issues with my video card and nvidia geforce go 7950 gtx. Dell came out with a new card. But no matter what they did and Im now waiting for them to get back to me we couldnt install the drivers. The following msg kept on coming up


    "There was a problem with the device, An error occured during the installation of the device"

    This morning when I turned on my laptop I got a blue screen with the following statement:

    "Driver unloaded without cancelling pending operation, your system has been shut down.

    I was able to restart my system.

    Any ideas???

    I would suggest you run DriverCleaner Pro ( http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=745 ) and remove all traces of the bad NVidia installs and then defragment and then reboot and then run sfc /scannow.

    After that, you can try a fresh NVidia install.
