    Go the Nvidia website and download the graphics driver that is appropriate to your graphics card and operating system. Once you download it, install it.

    I found out that my video card is a asus geforce 6600td 128 mb pcie.. but when i went to download the driver after it finished i went to setup it wouldnt work..Said " Nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible " do i have to install something else before hand ?

    Yes that's the fault
    You need to update your computer's drivers first, I'd also recommend completing Windows updates as well

    Thank you so much ! i will do that right now i hope it will work after updates :p

    Would there be any pacific drivers to update they all seem to be updated hmm this is strange..

    Also to note the cd that came with my video card wont work would that be because of it not having a driver or is there something else also

    Remove the addon Video card
    Get your onboard Video all working properly (all drivers updated)
    Probably restart a couple of times in that process

    Then once all is ok, then mount your new addon Video card and install the drivers
