Installing Drivers

By wayneinreno ·
I cannot seem to get my system to install drivers for my Nvidia ti4200 Video card. I had a problem, reinstalled windows XP Home. Everything loaded fine but these drivers. I have a yellow question mark next to "other devices" in the device manager.When I went to the wizard, it started the install then stopped, so I reset the machine, it went to scan disk and completed it, then the screen came up garbled with verticle lines through it. SO, I went to safe mode screen, and I highlighted "last configuration that worked and it came on fine, but the drivers are still missing. Need some help here thanks,

Installing Drivers

by Deadly Ernest In reply to Installing Drivers

Some of the Nvidia drivers need to be installed as a self executable file and not as a standard .dll via the hardware wizard.

Try starting the system then going to where the driver is and try running the driver program as an executable file and see what happens. The reason for this is that it load a whole lot more than just a few .dll files.

The Nvidia drivers for my 8200 is a self executable file and it load a heap of special progs into the 'Display', 'Settings', 'Advanced' area to do with managing special aspects of the card. Mine will never load from via the Hardware Wizard and I suspect your may be the same.

Error Loading C:\Windows\System\NVcpl.dll initialization failed. That is the error I get every time I try to load the drivers fro Nvidia, and PSNY Dot com.

The .inf file needs to be run from setup .exe,which you can do by inserting the disk in cd rom,the cd should automatically start and you have the option of installing the drivers rather than running Add New Hardware wizard.

If you use the new hardware wizard,then choose option to select from list,choose manufacturer,then choose have disk,this will allow you to install the drivers correctly
