Hi I hope some one can help. I downloaded a
nvidia
update through windows updates, as it finished installing, pop, the screen closed in by 40%, when I reboot or start up I now get an error message unable to load nvidia display driver.
I have downloaded and installed the driver from the nvidia website Windows/197.45/197.45 but it makes no difference

I have an HP Pavilion Elite windows 7 premium, upgrade from Vista.

I have also tried to repair from recovery manager but that tells me to install the recovery disc, if I were to do this would it wipe the disc clean, and would it recover the nvidia drivers.

I suggest you never use Windows Update to install drivers. Win Update can at times mis-read the hardware installed, particularly when you have a proprietary hardware component installed such as a video card made for Dell, HP or a 3rd party company that is using the nVidia chipset, Windows Update wants to install the latest nVidia drivers. IOW's, stick to the manufacturer website for drivers.

Yes it boots OK, everything works, except the screen monitor has closed in 3" both sides, and the resolution dosn't work quite well. But I always get that message unable to load nvidia display driver ever time I boot up.

OK ,the situation is very better than i thought!
Uninstall ALL OF THE NVIDIA DISPLAY DRIVERS AND CONSIDER REINSTALLING THEM from the Manufactuer's site.

Sorry to interrupt replay,
but its a built from HP and so HP could have made some changes to the graphic driver.
The windows update driver finds the graphic driver from the NVIDIA's site and these drivers have caused the problem.
So,
He should download the drivers from HP's Site
Its just a recommendation from my side

Please post the exact model no of your PC.
We can then help you out.
BTW,do you have an recovery CD?(the cd that came with the PC)
If any drivers are available for vista,try installing them
Most of them work on windows 7

Hello antech, It's quite amazing an hour after I got your last email, I had an email from hp to say they had an update for the problem, I have downloaded and installed the update and everything is back as it was originally.
I would like to thank you for your time and your willingness to help, it's great to know there are people like you whom you can turn to for help,
So once again thank you for your time.
