I cant run any programs that require a 3D Driver.So i was told to
install an NVIDIA display driver, but every time I try to install
NVIDIA from the main website its comes up with this error saying, *"The
NVIDIA setup program could not find any drivers that are compatable with
your current hardware. Setup will now exit."*


I have an HP PC, I forgot the type because it isn't posted on the PC.

I dont know what my driver is but my motherboaard is a KM400/KM266 And
nothing works on it. its like the MB is some random choice and it could
be from germany for all I know.

So should I just bash my computer with a bat till its says it is
compatable? Or do I have to go buy a new computer....Again?

You might be better to find out what type of graphics card is attached to
your PC or whether it is on-board graphics and what type. Look in hardware
manager.

NIZKA, this method rarely - but on occasion - works.

Especially to alleviate any resntment or impending high blood pressure.

"Shawk" probably gave the most reasonable answer in message:

Or, you can run:

Start
Run
type:

dxdiag

and see what's there.

OR (in XP):

Dbl-click My Computer
Right-click on Properties
Select Hardware
Then select Device Manager (which is the same thing Shawk recommended - I
think)

Mark, who is still trying to find an adapter to run a (OFF-TOPIC) circa 1999
Gravis Xterminator Digital Gamepad with a DB15 Serial plug into a 2.0 (or
less) USB port with success.

But that's a different (and O.T.) subject, ain't it. But please help if you
can.

LOL - it's great when you finally learn how to type quickly but a bummer if
you do it quicker than your brain works... yes I meant 'Device' Manager
under the 'Hardware' tab

Have had some success having the guys in the back room at Maplins (in the
UK) make up leads and adaptors for me in the past. Last one was a serial to
USB convertor for a noise meter (no serial ports on laptops anymore). Maybe
someone like this can make something that'll work?
