GeForce 4 MX 440 driver problems??

  1. Hi all

    Just bought a new video card and can't get the drivers installed correctly. The card is the GeForce 4 MX 440. I tried the drivers that came with it and also the latest nVidia drivers. At the end of the driver installation process I get this message:

    "An error occurred during the installation of the device. The data is invalid"

    After rebooting I get this error message:

    RUNDLL
    "Error loading NvQTwk the specified module could not be found"

    I've tried re-installing the drivers heaps of times and re-starting my system.....but no luck so far.....I'm stuck in the default 800x600 res setting and it's driving me nuts!

    Any help is very much appreciated....

    Athlon 2400
    Gigabyte GA-7VT600-L
    1 Gig RAM
    Win2K (service pack 4)

    Regards

    Paul

    well it wouldnt be a bad idea to uninstall the drivers using Driver cleaner to get all the files out. then reinstalling them.

    or you could try this fix

    Start->Run and type in msconfig and press Enter

    Click Startup Tab and look for an entry that may try to start a link to NvQtwl.dll. If you find such an entry, uncheck it. You may not specifically find an entry to the .dll but an entry to your graphics card, such as Nviz or something.

    Try Detonator Destroyer. It worked good for me.

    Detonator Destroyer does not work with Windows 2000 or Windows XP. At this time, it only supports Windows 9x/ME.

    Stick to iss's suggestion and give Driver Cleaner a shot.
