Just bought a gtx 460 and moved my gt 220 to the slot below for dedicated physx. When i boot up my computer the 'Found New Hardware Wizard' pops up and does not close. i download the nvidia 260.99 driver to my desktop but when i attempt to run it, it tells me to close my Found New Hardware Wizard. When i close the wizard it just pops up again. Im thinking maybe to take out the gt 220 and put it in after the driver is installed? Can anyone figure out my problem?

With only one of the cards in remove all drivers and then put just the 460 in and install the 260.99 driver and then if you must, put the 220 in.

1. Return your computer to its original configuration w/220
2. Uninsntall video drivers
3. Reboot to safe mode
4. USe a registry cleaner (i.e CCleaner) to remove all traces of all things nVidia
5. Install the 460 in 1st GPU slot / 220 in 2nd.
6. Reboot and install drivers.

Or you can put the GT 220 in, install the drivers, then remove it and put the GTX 460 in its place.It may work.
