Problem with installing NVIDIA Graphics Driver
Hello,

I have some problem with installing new version of NVIDIA Graphics Driver. When I try to do it I have this error. The message means:

Install can not continue
This graphics controller could not find compatible graphics hardware.

Any idea why ? I tried to find help forum on Nvidia web page but there isn't.

Regards

Hi,

Firstly, can you post the specs of your system (make / model of motherboard, RAM, Graphics Card etc).

Thanks

Are you using the Nvidia site using the Option 2 Graphics Drivers button to Automatically check for updated drivers?

No, I am using filehippo Update Checker:

When I try to use your link I have this message:

The NVIDIA Smart Scan was unable to evaluate your system hardware. Please use Option 1 to manually find drivers for your NVIDIA products.

I haven't found any option in NOD32 related to blocking websites.
