  1. Hi Guys,

    Needs some helps here, been trying to install the latest driver of Nvidia (335.23) on my machine windows 7 ultimate but it failed.

    OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate x64
    RAM : 8GB
    Version 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti


    I tried the workaround as below but still managed to repro the issue: I read some forums it could be due to registry issue. Appreciate if anyone can help? I don't want to rebuild my machine:)

    1. Using Display Driver Uninstaller
    2. Installing the driver on windows safe-mode.

    Couple of things to try:

    1: Try the detect and install tool, it works pretty well in these situations

    2: Try checking device manager to make sure no drivers are missing (Besides GFX) in case sometimes got messed up

    3: Try different versions of the driver

    Hope this helps!

    I've tried with different version, no luck still the same.
    The graphics card is detected in device manager. I managed to install the latest driver (335.23) by going the device manager > right click on display adapter -> update driver software -> browse and update the latest driver which I downloaded on my machine. This only installed the driver but not the GFExperience, PhysX that packed with the installation file.
    I've ran several games, and it was working fine. The thing is I couldn't install using the installation file.
