Ok I have been trying to figure this out for almost 2 weeks now. The newest NVIDIA drivers for me 334.89 will not install.

 

Specs:

 

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Graphics Card - GeForce 690

 

Here are some things I've tried and you should know:

 

The first time I did a normal update through GeForce Experience and that has failed.

The next time I downloaded the actual driver manually to install but still no luck.

I have disabled all my security programs and tried again but it failed.

I have uninstalled my Antivirus and completely removed any leftovers by making a custom script with ComboFix to absolutely make sure its not my AntiVirus interfering but even with all that it still didn't work.

The next thing I have tried was uninstalling it regularly, then using a program that has proven to work for many people Driver Sweeper. It cleaned the leftover drivers and I tried to install the drivers again, this time

using the option for "Clean Install" which removes any preferences for Nvidia and such. But after all this nothing has worked. I really don't think I am infected. I just think I have conflicting software and I can't figure out where.

 

My computer is also heavily modified with themes and rainmeters and such and I had to use a universal theme patcher (yes its safe) to patch my system but msconfig thinks those files are "corrupt" which is not true. I don't know if that has anything to do with it.. but I really need help bad on this one.

 

If there is any other information I need to post just let me know.

 

Edit- I have posted this problem in the Nvidia forums but they were useless which is why I am posting it here.

"heavily modified with themes and rainmeters" I think is your problem. After you uninstall the driver use Driver Sweeper again in safe mode to delete any remaining items and then install the driver in safe mode.

"My computer is also heavily modified with themes and rainmeters" - get greasy or lubricating your Windows and is a path towards one new full clean install.Driver Sweeper,Driver Genius etc. programs are not a good decision.

Safe mode didn't work, is there anyone here that specializes in figuring out the conflict?

 

 

@Alex&Vanko If I wanted to do a clean install I wouldn't be here. Driver Sweeper has been an excellent program in the past for me and its even available here at BleepingComputer to download so I don't know where you are getting your information from.

Sorry my mistake.So many sweeping and washing programs there are.I have nothing against Driver Sweeper.I apologize! As far as I understood you use applications to make Windows looking more beautiful.That`s crumble it.

if you have onboard video, that is a neat-o feature to use while you are uninstalling. dislodge the card, hook up to your onboard, power up; uninstall everything and get your drivers you want to try on standby  you can uninstall directly through your control panel or with the BC approved third-party apps available in the download section, once you are clean, power down, install the card, power back up and load the desired drivers and then shazam. i have done it that way so many times as i was switchng back and forth from radeon to nvidia and back.  with nvidia, it is a good idea to get the whql versions, not the beta.
