Problem install 7800GS Drivers

Sep 4, 2007
  1. Hey,

    I just got the 7800gs and i am having nothing but trouble. I installed the hardware as the instructions and turned on my computer, windows automaticly detected a new device and attempted to install it. This is were my problem comes into play, it says The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request. Then it just reads as 'Video Controller (VGA Compatible)' in the device manager, then when i go to install the drivers both from the disk or from the website it says 'nothing has been changed' try to install at a later time. I dont think its a problem with the card because i do get a picture. I would like to get this working as soon as possible because i waited a long time to get it and spent a nice chunk of change on it. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT..

    Thanks for whatever you can do for me!

    - Shaun

    Did you uninstall the driver and software for your old card first?
