I installed the Win 7 to my PC. When I will install the graphic card driver, I red the notification:

NVIDIA Setup Error:
The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit.

What is the problem? The driver is 258.96.
Thank you.

First, make sure you have the right driver for your OS (64bit vs 32bit).

Windows 7 32bit Driver:

The drivers say they support your card:

However, the error you're getting says it's a hardware issue. Which means it might not be recognizing your video card perhaps? Probably a good idea to upgrade it if you can afford to do so though. Windows 7 would probably perform better (especially with Aero on) with a more modern GPU. :)

The Windows 7 version is 64 bit. I reinstall it, downloadet once both driver, 258.96 and 197.45 but it is the same problem. But what is interesting, the Device Manager do not recognize Display Adapter. In the System Information file this is empty.
