    Nvidia HD audio and Microsoft hd audio Driver problem


    I installed my graphics card but the NVidia hd audio driver wont install I tried clean reinstall with driver signature removed and all
    It only installs the Microsoft driver I tried extracting the .inf for it and manually install but I get a not compatible with windows message.
    Any helps appreciated

    Hi tice1231

    Could you possibly tell us the exact Video card you are using. Maker and Model?

    Is this the correct one? zotac synergy edition 4gb GT630? 650?

    EDIT:

    I see you have your own soundblaster Audio card? Does the motherboard have onboard sound card? If so, try disabling the onboard sound in the BIOS. See if that helps.

    graphics card driver


    I installed the graphics card by itself first... the thing is the Microsoft driver it installs instead of the NVidia driver.. I tried installing the driver manually but that didn't work
    the card is NVidia GeForce 630gt synergy edition 4gb
    it also installs a extra NVidia high definition audio driver for the ports

    the drivers for the other soundcards installed fine
    the onboard and the soundcard are ok working together

    The reason im asking is because you appear to be running an onboard sound and a soundblaster card. Seems to be a bit of a conflict. I would personally disable the onboard sound, remove the realtek drivers, try installing the HD drivers again. i dont understand why you need both on board and a soundblaster card.

    Anyway. Latest driver information including updated Windows 8 Drivers (Windows 8 Drivers which were Updated March 10 2014) for Popular Hardware.

    Below is a three page list of information on Windows 8 drivers and general Windows 8 compatibility information for major hardware and computer system makers, including Acer, Dell, Sony, NVIDIA, AMD, SOUNDBLASTER, and many more.
