    Hi, I just rolled back my Nvidia 8600 graphics card, and now its called "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" According to my device manager. I rolled back my card to prevent an error that occured while I played WoW, but now, all the text is super small and I need to update back to my original card...

    I clicked update driver, but its been saying "Searching for online software" for like 10 minutes now...and I'm afraid somethings wrong

    Can someone help me? or perhaps send me the driver update I can manually update with?
    Thanks in advanced.

    Go over to Nvidia on line and search for the drivers on your own. Sometimes windows doesn't find what your know is there. Nvidia should have the driver for your os. Jazz

    Glad to hear it. Generally speaking the manufactures of most devices have sites that maintain your drivers and have the right one for the right OS. Jazz
