last night i went to re-install the nvidia drivers for my Gainward Ti 4200 as each time i would right click with the mouse, i received an error saying something or other about checking that the graphics card driver were installed properly (can't really remember what message i was getting now). So i uninstalled the drivers i was using before (not sure which revision) and restarted my computer. i then installed the latest version of the nvidia drivers (61.77) but i got this message up when i tried to update the driver for my card:
"Cannot install this hardware
There was a problem installing this hardware:
NVIDIA GeForce 4Ti 4200
An error occurred during the installation of the device
The parameter is incorrect"
i took a look round for what the problem might be and found this
"This error usually occurs during installation initialization. This error can occur for several reasons. Some specific reasons might be if an installation is being run from a network or the path from which setup.exe is launched is too long. There might be more reasons that are computer specific"
the same article also suggests that the problem may have something to do with an out of date ikernal, which i have subsequently updated, and also suggests cleaning the temp directory in the windows folder, which i have also done. i have also tried installing older versions of the drivers (56.72 + 45.33) and have also used driver cleaner and reg cleaner to get rid of any traces of the old drivers, but all to no avail as i keep getting the same error message. can anyone please suggest how i might go about fixing this with a clean format of the drive?
