Nvidia Driver Problems

I have ASUS ENGTX 560 DC/2DI/1GD5 with 280 version drivers installed and I cannot enable Windows Aero Effect with my card, I get these errors when I try to fix it:

And this when I start Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor:

It says that my card doesn't support Windows Aero.. I mean... LOL ... One of the better cards can't support simple Aero effect.
My PC specs are:
ASUS P8Z68-V
i5 2500k
2x2GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz
and this 560 Nvidia card...
And when I try to Update or reinstall my drivers I get this Error page :/

Till now I've tried uninstalling the drivers with various types of Driver Cleaning programs, I've tried cleaning up the registry too and everything, but I still cannot pass the error window which I showed above(it's the 3rd picture) when I want to install my drivers. What should I do ??? Please help!

  1. Have you made sure that W7 is fully updated? Have you tried deleting the Nvidia .dll files from the System32 folder?
  2. I have Windows 7 Service pack 1 installed and updates are turned on.
    I can try removing those files, jsut thele where exactly to locate them and their names.. But I think it wont work : /
  3. C: /windows/System32/ and delete all the Nvidia .dlls. I have 41 in my folder and I can't be bothered to list them.
  4. Have you tried to uninstall in safe mode? With DriverCleaner (in safe mode again)?

    I don't know which ones are Nvidia dlls, there are too many random named files and folders.. :/

    I have not tried anything in Safe mode, Maybe that could help. I was thinking about downloading Service Pack 1 again and reinstall it, maybe it will help in some way (refresh some system files or something) : /

    Go into list view and hover your cursor over files beginning 'Nv'.
  7. Done that now, deleted everything related with Nvidia from my PC and when I try to install the latest drivers again I get the same error. :/
  8. I had a similar issue when I first got my 560's and I tried to install them on an old install of Vista and again when I reformatted and installed W7 64 and both times I had to keep clicking on windows update, shutting down rebooting and clicking on windows update in an effort to force some updates that didn't seem to happen automatically and after a bit the driver installed without any problem.
  9. So you installed your drivers Via Windows Update, not over Nvidia official site for their drivers ?

    No that's the only update I didn't install as I wanted to install the official driver.
  11. Ohh.. But when I first installed my card I think that the drivers were automatically downloaded :/ .. maybe it's the best way to do the fresh system install, to turn off my Internet connection(or to turn off windows update) and to install drivers which I already downloaded manually.. ? Hope it will fix my Windows Aero problem too :/
  12. You could try that if it's possible, most people don't want or are unable to do a reinstall of windows so I was hesitant to suggest that.
  13. I don't see any other option :/ I think I've tried everythin, except Safe Mode Cleaning :s
  14. Problem solved by reinstalling the system. Thanks. :)
