I have been trying to fix  my computer Display driver. I am using a Nvidia 520/560 video card. Recently, just visited Nvidia site and downloaded their latest updates of the driver for Nvidia 520/560. However, once it has been installed, my computer seems to load okay but when I try to start using it, it just froze and I cannot proceed but to restart it again and again ending up uninstalling the driver. I was able to see the properties though of my desktop and it reads Nvidia 7000 / 7200 GS. I don't know why it says that thoug I was able to download for sure the correct version and model of the video card that I have. I tried my cd installer of my mother board that includes the driver of my video card. It does load but that's it. It does nothing and my computer only uses the Plug and Play by default of my computer.

 

Please help....

Please, please, please, I need help guyz...

 

It seems that no one cares about this post and share their knowledge. I really need an answer about this issue.  By the way, everytime I downloaded the Nvidia driver for Nvidia Nforce series 520/560 32 bit, the system shows it downloaded the  Nvidia 7300 SE / 7200 GS driver. Once it is installed, my monitor froze and I cannot do anything but to uninstall the driver. Is my video card damaged now? or Should I replace it with a new one.. Computer uses the default plug and play driver of the system and not the video card...

 

 

Hope to receive a reply....

Hi Guyz,

 

Please, please, please help me. This is just a follow up to my previous post because I believe no one give an answer to it. I really need an answer about this issue.  Everytime I  downloaded the Nvidia driver for Nvidia Nforce series 520/560 32 bit, the system shows it downloaded the  Nvidia 7300 SE / 7200 GS driver. Once it is installed, my monitor froze and I cannot do anything but to uninstall the driver. Is my video card damaged now? or Should I replace it with a new one..? Computer uses the default plug and play driver of the system and not the video card...

 

Thank you. Hoping for a reply...

No the problem is newer drivers don't always work with older cards. Try going back to an older driver, not sure which one will work with that card, but that is a common problem. There is a guy in Austria who goes by the name "Don Pedro" at the K6Plus forum. He is an expert on what drivers will work with what cards as far as "NVidia" is concerned. I will do a post there requesting instructions from Don Pedro as to how to download the correct driver for your card.

 

You may go to this link to follow Don Pedro's replies.

I just checked online for a driver myself. Did you try this link ? 

 

http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_520_winxp2k_12.15

 

It says that the driver you download is from 2007 which might work, though when Don Pedro answers he will say which driver is best for your card.

Hi Corneto,

 

You have me a bit confused here. According to the nVidia web-site, the 520/560 series are motherboards, not video cards. Is this where you are trying to get your drivers from ?

 

http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_520_winxp2k_12.15

 

If you are, this is the motherboard web page and not the drivers for your video card. If you are not sure exactly what video card you have, I suggest you download 'Speccy' from here :

 

http://www.piriform.com/speccy

 

and run it. It will tell you exactly what components you have installed on your computer, including the video card, and you can search for the correct drivers once you have that information.  I would be surprised if you have done any damage to your video card, but having possibly irrelevant motherboard drivers would certainly explain why your monitor froze !

 

I almost forgot - Are you running XP with Service Pack 3 ?  If you aren't, I strongly advise you update to SP3 as soon as.

 

Chris Cosgrove

Hi Guyz,

 

Thanks for all the help. I am trying all your suggestions now and will give you all the results. I am still currently at work and will do exactly what you all asked later when I will be at home. I am also using Windows XP 32 bit SP3. I still have all my cd installer driver for my motherboard and I believe the driver for my video card is with the cd itself. Before when my computer stop working and when I try to reformat my computer when it crashes down, I used the same cd installer to have all my drivers back working again. Read the manual of my mother board and it does says there that the motherboard is basing on the Nvidia Nforce series 520/560 for graphic performance. I am using an MSI motherboard.

 

Thank you.

It is somewhat unclear whether or not your motherboard has "Onboard Video". If I understand you correctly, you are using some kind of Nvidia "Video Card". i.e a separate card that fits in one of the following type slots. 1) PCI Slot, 2) AGP Slot, 3) PCI Express Slot. If That is the case, You do not need the driver for the "Onboard Video" assuming that your motherboard has "Onboard Video", but rather the driver for the type of Video Card you are using. 

 

Please specify exactly what model of Nvidea Videp Card you are using, if you want to be able to get the right driver for it.

If in fact you do not have a video card, and have your monitor plugged into the "Onboard Video" plug on the motherboard, then the simplest solution would be to use the CD-disk that came with your motherboard to re-install the "Video Driver".
