I have an Nvidia GeForce GTX 460. My system crashed 2 nights ago due to a bios error and I ended up saving some files and documents but I had to wipe the computer back to factory settings. the drivers of course needed to be reinstalled for a lot of things. The nvidia drivers were not installed how ever and I have been to their site and it says the hardware I have doesnt match their driver downloads. The resolution maximum with the VGA is 1280x1024 and when the video card was working properly it was 1960x1640. Before the crash i had no problems at all, but now it shows as an: Acer S271HL on Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. How can I fix this and what is going wrong?
You need to download and install the video card drivers either from the Toshiba website or Nvidia's website -- right now the OS does not know what video card you have and is running off of some old generic drivers that are used for troubleshooting (so that the system will at least run so you can install the proper drivers)
BE sure that you download the proper Nvidia driver for your version of windows (VISTA - Win 7 - and 32 bit or 64 bit depending on what OS you have) and for your video card and install them. ( the error message about not having the right hardware is because it scans the driver you are currently using (Standard VGA) and thinks you do not have an Nvidia video card when using the scanner - so go directly to the download section and find the driver for your version of windows and download and install them instead of using their auto detect program !!
