MSI NX7900GTO Problems

1364 Views 19 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  .16787
Helloo,

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 9.1.4.7, 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+
2GB RAM
600W PSU

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Okay, first thing to do is download the drivers from nVidia's site. Always always always download the drivers from the GPU mfg, not the card mfg. Here's the link to the nVidia download page:

OK i click on Geforce and TNT Series but i have never heard of TNT. Should i be clicking Geforce 7 Go Series???
No. The Go series are mobile cards. You want the GeForce and TNT section. The drivers are the same for both products. Then choose your operating system.
Do you have any background applications running? Is windows up-to-date?

Also, do a full spyware scan/virus scan, defrag, and disk cleanup.
