Hello, 

 

    I recently bought a GTX 675M to replace my old one which was a GTX 675M as well, I checked on GPU-Z and it shows the following in the attached file, I've tried re-installing windows to no avail, I also tried doing DDU from safe boot also tried modding my Driver Files which I probably did wrong I also tried updating from the device manager. Right now I'm going to try it on windows 7 Home premium but before I do that I want to get more input.

I might not be getting the picture right, but if the Nvidia driver shows in the device manager, it wouldn't matter much what CPUID calls it.

OTOH, if you just have a generic driver installed, then by all means, that needs to be fixed.


All is well in Paradise.

It reads it as a generic, I can't actually use it at all this is what it gives me in device manager

I'm guessing that this means you have tried to install the drivers for your card and you either can't run the program or they simply don't work?

Yes I have it says that the driver couldn't find compatible hardware for the update It doesn't let me update because it says its already up to date but it's not

See Videocard Benchmarks and read, yours is at (or near) the ?? bottom.

This would make GeForce GTX 675M about "Generic".

 

Thanks -

Download Nothing from the linked site, it is just for reading information.
