  1. Have you downloaded the latest NVIDIA drivers from www.nvidia.com ?
  2. What OS ?

    Did you remove old GFX drivers before uninstalling the old 8800 ?
  3. Hi Yeah I installedc the lates drivers just uninstalled them and am trying to install them again.
    Im on Win 7 I removed all of the 8800gt stuff even used driversweeper to get rid of everything because I had bought a Nvidia 210 when the 8800 died but it didnt work and when I went to the store today they took it back even though the card worked because they put another card they had there into my system and it worked so I figured my system was ok and decided to upgrade the psu and the card to the 460 GTX instead of getting another 210 thought everything would be greatwhen I came home and now this plus sound isnt working either.
  4. Also tried to start a NVidia program called 3d vision got an error saying failed to create D3D Decive with mode matching desktop(1920x1080,0Hx,format:22)

    whatever that means.

    But it seems d3d isnt working...
  5. Did WOW come with a disk, or other file so that you can re-run the installer in order to repair the installation?
  6. You can also go to Start > Run > type "dxdiag" hit enter > see if the DirectX diagnostic can find any errors. After it scans your system, it will give you an idea if there are any DirectX errors.
  7. Hi,

    No I dont have the WOW disks and its definitely not wow, I ran Dxdiag and everything is fine, but in the nvidia control panel when i try to enable stereoscopic 3d it says:
    Failed to create D3D Device with mode matching desktop (1920x1080,0Hz,format:22)

    =(
    Dont know what to do

    Don't mess with the stereoscopic 3D, that is for 3D Vision glasses.

    How did you install the latest DirectX? You should install the web installer from here:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&displaylang=en
  9. Have you tried the video card in another computer?

    After trying all the obvious stuff: drivers, program reinstallation, etc., that's the first thing I would do.
  10. OK wont touch the stereoscopic 3d.
    I tried that direct X link but I had just installed DX 11 via web so it told me I had newer DX installed and update wasnt necessary.

    Sry no I dont have another com to try the card out on =(

    And for some reason my sound isnt working either.
  11. Try doing a System Restore to see if you can recover the sound and perhaps reinstall the drivers. My feeling is though you are in for a reinstall. Win 7 is good at swapping out hardware but it is not bulletproof in this area.
  12. ACtually now looking in the nvidia control panel 3d settings where your supposed to see a preview I dont see anything either =(
  13. Thanks to all for helping.

    Did a system restore and somehow that fixed everything, didnt want to do it at first but glad it worked.
    Thanks.

    Most people just load up a p2p install then go purchase an key from Blizzard instead of buying a whole CD/DVD kit plus it weighs in at a hefty 18gb depending on which patch is being used.

    Sometimes it's the easy fixes that get overlooked.
