  1. hello, i recently purchased a new video card (NVidia GeForce GTX 460 SE), and current i'm using the drivers that came with the cd.

    whenever i try to install newer drives online it always says nvidia installer failed, my driver log is consistent:

    Code:

    i have tried with versions 275.33, 275.50, and 270.61.

    when i install via device manager it seems to install normally however at the end of the install it fails, resulting in having no driver at all for the video card

    i have no firewall, no third party anything, i've tried in safe mode as well and the result is the same, i really don't want to format so i'm hoping there's another solution for this

    thanks

    Try Driver Sweeper 3.

    Run it, boot into safe mode, run it again. Remember only delete your video card drivers, nothing else.

    Install latest from nvidia's website.

    i've used driver cleaner and driver sweeper before installs, same issue

    i ran your procedure again, and received this error:

    just a guess at something else to try...

    Turn off any real-time protection in your antivirus and spyware protection tools. They sometimes interfere with legit installs (after trying to install remember to turn 'em back on :) )

    i don't have any that i've installed myself, unless there's some things that run in the background without my knowledge, but that should be a non factor in safe mode shouldn't it?

    Oh...

    yea, you're right... Real time protection probably shouldn't make a difference if you're installing while in safe mode....

    What version of Windows are you running? What service pack level are you running?? Are you the latest Service Pack? Have you run and applied all of the Windows updates?

    /* edit */
    Have you also tried installing when NOT in safe mode and after you ran the driver cleanup tools? As some services might also be needed that perhaps aren't available while in safe mode to complete the nvidia install.. just checking

    sorry, forgot to include that stuff

    windows xp sp3 32 bit, and i use zero windows updates

    and yes, i've tried installing it in both in and out of safemode while removing the drivers first out of safe mode then inside of it

    This may be a long shot but it's easy to do, so worth the try since you're still running XP

    an XP machine's "driver signing" policy can also interfere with installation of unsigned drivers or drivers with bad or expired security certificates (tho nvidia's web site says its latest driver is supposed to be digitally signed)

    The following only applies to W2K and XP machines:
    Right click My computer->Properties->Hardware tab. Click the Driver Signing button. Select Warn and check Make this action default. Click OK. Try installing again. if you get warning about unsigned drivers, just click continue

    Otherwise, i could only make guesses about try installling Windows critical and hardware updates and trying a repair install as well before biting the bullet to do a full install...

    Let us know if you should figure this one out..

    I talked with an nvidia tech support person and he said it was likely a corrupted operating system, but updating the motherboard bios has solved the issue in the past, which i did and there was no success

    i also tried a repair install and that essentially broke my os, so i had to bite the bullet :(
