  1. Hello, my friend has been having some issues with his gpu...

    now to play anything it says he needs to install his gpu driver but the install never gets completed, not even the actual driver from the manufacturer's website.

    I saw something similar on another thread so I went to run -> msinfo32 -> components -> Problem devices and all it says is Display - driver not installed

    Which graphics card and driver download are we talking about?

    Well apparently it was the newest version of the driver because he removed it and it works fine now lol

    EDIT:
    Ye thats the same driver we were trying and it would get 70%ish complete and then it would stop and say that it failed

    Did you chose custom install>clean install?
