I turned on my computer for the first time in about a year and started getting everything updated. Everything was going good until I tried to update my graphics driver navida gt 530, and my computer seem to glitch out and I had to force restart, now I get nothing my monitor says its not even connected. I made sure all my cords are connected and nothing lose but still no luck. I hope someone can please tell me there is a fix. Oh Windows 7 sp1 64bit

I've got a windows 7 64bit, and a navida geforce gt 530 graphics card. I've had the computer turned off for about a year now and I got everything re updated expect the graphics card. No matter what I try to do, to update it the update fails. Tried it from windows update, the geforce program and from manually downloading from the website. Not sure what to try next.

What fuels your desire to update the drivers, assuming that the system worked fine before you attempted your updates?

I like to try to keep things up to date if I can.
When I first turned it on I was having some graphic issues Im hoping an update will help and that the card is not dying

As to why the update is failing, my only guess is that there really isn't anymore updates you can do to that system as that's an ancient card and OS. I've also ran into periodical problems getting an update to work with the Geforce program but never with the site which further leads me to believe that the update just isn't for you. But if your hellbent on trying to get it to work my only suggestion is to start fresh and get rid of the current driver with : http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html    .

Then navigate the geforce website and make sure you select your card and os and get the latest driver suggested. With that being said I wouldn't imagine this will do much as a dying card will not magically be saved from one driver update, but best of luck to you anyways.
