MSI NX7900GTO Problems

1363 Views 19 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  .16787

I have this 7900GTO card, with brilliant specs and it had an excellent price tag. However it is not running the way it should. It will run the games with what is says is full graphics but when i see the same game on another PC which has lower specs than mine, the graphics are blatently better.

I thought it might be the driver i had so i went to the CD that came with the card and i clicked on the download driver button and the nvidia setup loads and then says:
"The NVIDIA setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your hardware. The setup will now exit."
I have also tried the MSI website and tried drivers that it says are for my card and drivers that it says are for the 7900gt and 7900gtx because it seems close enough, but both have the same problem.

I have just checked what driver i have at the moment and it says, which i presume is the same as 91.47 which is the one that is for my card.

Would uninstalling and then reinstalling the driver help, or maybe getting an older driver...
I am puzzled.

My other specs are:
AMD Dual Core 4800+
600W PSU

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

OK i click on Geforce and TNT Series but i have never heard of TNT. Should i be clicking Geforce 7 Go Series???
Add/Remove AND the device manager... which one???
Yes, i have an NVIDIA Drivers in Add/Remove Programs... should i uninstall via device manager first, or through Add/Remove Programs?? Does it even make any difference?
Cheers. will do it now...
OK, the new driver has been installed successfully, however, i am not seeing any difference in graphics or 3D Mark score. In fact, my 3D Mark Score in 3D Mark 05 has go0ne down from 9500 to 8500 roughly. For my specs, my computer isnt performing how it should and its very annoying.

Any other ideas?
okee dokee... windows is up to date, but ill do the rest of the stuff you mentioned.. cheers
Definately no chance in that... and it is reporting the right specs.

Good news though, i found 3D settings in the NVIDIA control panel, because i didnt realise there was a standard and advanced view. In here i changed the setting all to their best. They were application controlled before. For some reason this made battlefield 2142 looks a whole lot nicer, which is wicked.

I think for now the problem has been sorted, thanks anyway, and cheers for the fast response.
OK, the graphics on battlefield may be better, but on 3D Mark 2001 SE i am getting 19,200 which is definately not right for a machine like mine, and that was with my graphics card overclocked slightly.

It dont make no sense!!!
Yes, i see. OK, and i suppose its not important what 3D Mark score you get, as long as it will play the games you want it to play, then everything is ok.

Well thanks....
