Re: [SOLVED] - Nvidia Drivers Wont Install!

Guys, I'm tearing my hair out, I've tried you method to the letter but I still can't install my drivers, I can't install anything using the NvidiaNvidia installer or the windows driver options, fails every time.. My pc is in a complicated arcade machine will prove disastrous to reformat, if I use system restore I can get my machine working with the latest NvidiaNvidia drivers 320. But these drivers make my machine run slow, my best driver is 314 but now nothing I do will allow my to install them....please please please help guys... Richie

Re: [SOLVED] - Nvidia Drivers Wont Install!

Thinking, I think the biggest things are making 100% sure that any remnants of previous NvidiaNvidia drivers are removed from your system first, and then making sure that all of the right folder / file permissions are correct. Which OS are you doing this on, Windows 8?



Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, see?

Re: [SOLVED] - Nvidia Drivers Wont Install!

You might want to update this brilliant solution, I had a problem with catalyst control center which was bringing up the fatal 'inf files not found' error and nobody had a solution that worked for me so I installed a card from another computer and tried the NvidiaNvidia drivers and got the error that you described. I used the take control file the way that you have instructed, installed the original card and catalyst control center and it worked perfectly so I think the solution that you have discovered covers a much wider windows fault!!!
