Hi. I tried to install the latest drivers for my graphics card which is a GTX550ti but it fails saying "this graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware". My computer gives me display but under display adapters in Device Manager it shows Standard VGA Graphics Adapter instead of the name of my graphics card.

 

I've placed my card correctly in its place on the PCI-E_16 slot in my motherboard and attached the 6-pin from the power supply to it. I don't know what's causing it but any help in fixing this issue will be highly appreciated. Thanks.

1. If you are replacing an existing video card, even if it is from the same manufacturer, it is advisable to remove any existing video drivers/software.

 

Display Driver Uninstaller

2. Have you tried going to the NVIDIA website and using Option 2: Automatically find drivers for my NVIDIA products?

in your BIOS there should be an option to switch between onboard graphics and PCI_E graphics (or is on most systems) you may have to look around for it, it needs to be set to PCI_E

Hi guys, I've sorted it out now. It was a simple fix. Anyone who has this problem should simply install an older version of the drivers and then update to the latest ones. I wanna thank you guys for taking your time to help me out. Gotta go now, take care. :thumbsup2:
