    Windows 7, trying to get 8 Pro upgrade working...


    Evening folks,

    Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere...
    I was experiencing all sorts of corrupted screen graphics and text, with artifacts all over the place when trying to install Windows 8. My PC has onboard graphics, and I had purchased a GTX 550 TI 2gb card too. That worked fine in Windows 7, but Windows 8 hates it. I have the 306.97 drivers installed. If I take the card out, Windows is fine. The bios WAS set up so that the initial video graphics was in the PEG setting, and the second bios entry was set to 'enable if no PEG'.

    Can anyone advise? As soon as the card is inserted into the pc, and the pc started up, windows goes haywire .

    Very Best Wishes,
    Bob.

    ** EDIT due to blond moment **

    Just realised that when I installed my GTX 550 Ti under Windows 7, I'd uninstalled my Nforce 6150 SE onboard graphics, then installed the GTX...
    On installing Windows 8, the Nforce chipset was installed automatically. I hadn't taken that into account when trying to run the PC under 8, hence my garbled graphics and problems.
    If I disable (as opposed to uninstalling) the Nforce display adapter, should I then be able to install and use the GTX card?

    Thanks in advance.

    Very Best Wishes,
    Bob.

    win8 Enterprise trial x64


    I have this problem too on my HP pavilion tx1340ea ..graphics perfect in win7 ult-64 multi screens...issues installing NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 drivers in win8 Enterprise Trial-64 (initially only wanted to install MS basic driver which gave very lo res and would not allow screen extension), with help I managed to jerry rig older versions of NVIDIA graphics and coprocessor drivers to enable multi screen / higher resolutions, but have an ongoing problem with blackscreen / screen "stutter" especially when running ie9..

    If anyone finds or mods some drivers that overcome this I would be delighted to hear of it.

    I have tried modifying 306.97 nv_disp.inf file for x64 but when I try updated drivers the GO6150 still does not appear on the dropdown list asking which driver required..ideas anyone?

    Windows 8 Pro


    Hi All
    Not a knower of graphics but seek help...and apologies if covered elsewhere. I am quite new here so be gentle
    I have Windows 8, with SyncMaster S23B370 LED Monitor and nvidia geforce GT610 card with latest released driver 306.97.
    I get a black screen up to the pre login screen and the biggest problem is it wont come out of sleep and even out of turn of screen after 10min mode. I have got the screen to turn on after I turn the monitor off and back on at the touch button on the monitor. I have noticed quite a lot of hits on google for this but no real answers.
    Any clues?
    Thank a lot
    Ray
