    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

    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.
