Re: NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT driver update fails with an error

I wanted to know if you have uninstalled the old driver completely before installing the latest drive for it or not? If not then uninstall it first using driver sweeper and then precede installing new driver. If you are facing this issue with particular version of driver then you can try installing some other. Just refer to things I have mentioned and let me know if you are able to install driver for it successfully or not.

Re: NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT driver update fails with an error

Ok, I was just trying to update the driver previously from device manager but after your suggestion I have uninstalled the old driver and have tried making a fresh installation of the driver but no avail. I am still getting the same error message at the end of the installation. Is there something wrong with the driver or the card? I am not able to make out, I have tried installing the driver several times but I did not had any luck yet. I am trying to install the below driver from the nvidia site:
  • Version: 301.42 WHQL
  • Release Date: 2012.05.22
  • Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit, Windows Vista 64-bit
  • Language: English (India)
  • File Size: 160 MB
As far as I am aware this is the latest version of driver for my card, if you are aware of some other latest driver then let me know. i will try installing that.

Re: NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT driver update fails with an error

Now I have tried out installing the below version of drivers and unfortunately I have received the same error message for them all:
  • GeForce 304.79 Driver - 304.79
  • GeForce 304.48 Driver - 304.48
  • GeForce 301.42 Driver - 301.42
  • GeForce 301.24 Driver - 301.24
I am just running out of ideas and I donít know what to do, what else can be wrong? I donít think that I am missing anything at my end as far as the installing driver is concerned.
