Guest Pete Posted January 26, 2008 Report Share Posted January 26, 2008 Ok soo... Vista Ultimate (32) Nvidia 6800 go I have basically been trying to figure this out for the past 6 hours: I have a copy of Vista installed and my card was defaulted to the drivers from microsoft which for the 6800 go are the WDDM ones. I have been using laptopvideo2go ever since I got my alienware which would make that 3-4 years now and never have I had this much trouble getting new drivers to run on this thing till today. I uninstalled my display driver, booted up in safe mode, downloaded and ran driver sweeper, re booted up in safe and installed v167.45 drivers here with the modded inf, then restarted. I thought to myself well that was easy as it has always been... wrong. My laptop only gets as far as the loading bar for vista. From there I see a black screen for about 30-40 seconds, followed by a black screen w/ vertical running white bars up and down the screen. The computer then crashes out, restarts, and prompts me to choose between safe mode, safe mode w/ networking... etc etc. So I figure its bad install. I try it all again: uninstall, reboot into safe mode, clean, reboot into safe mode, install, restart into normal. Same problem. I have tried this with a number of Vista 32 drives and all have gotten me the same results. What is worse is I cant even get vista to recognize the card now. When I uninstall it and reboot and then scan my hardware the display comes up as the "standard vga graphics adapter." Is there something I am missing here?? :) Here is a list of drivers I have tried (all with there respective modded infs): 169.09 165.01 163.75 163.71 Also sorry for not posting this under a user name.
