MSI NX7900GTO Problems

1361 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...

And I'll add to completely uninstall all previous drivers using Add/Remove and the device manager before installing the new set/software.

Add/Remove AND the device manager... which one???
You should have a listing in the Add/Remove programs that's named Nvidia or MSI graphics. It's hard to say but there should be something. In the device manager you'll want to go to Device Manage / Display Adapter and open the listing under that and go to the driver tab and choose "Uninstall".

Both Nvidia and ATI are very picky about clean installs. They hate being install over old drivers / software.
I always do the Add/Remove first. After both are uninstalled you'll reboot in VGA mode. The card will be recognized by Windows on boot and ask you if you want to install it. Choose cancel all the way through until Windows is fully loaded and then install the drivers you've downloaded per Jones and then reboot and let it install the card.
Is your rig reporting the right processor speed, amount of memory, etc.?
Done it myself, worked so hard to fix something, maybe reseating a card, forgot to plug the power connector back in. Any chance here ?
