*HELP* The Graphics Driver Could Not Find Compatible Graphics Hardware

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I booted up my pc as per normal today and got the error along the lines of 'You are currently not attached to an Nvidia GPU'. I hadn't installed anything new or changed anything so I was surprised but a quick search on possible solutions let me to discover that the most common solution was to uninstall everything associated with nvidia and reinstall. I followed the instructions in this thread and once I was done, attempted to install the driver I'd downloaded from nvidia, version 335.23.

Now I receive the error 'The Graphics Driver Could Not Find Compatible Graphics Hardware' and my driver install does not proceed. Any advice on how to solve this?

I'm using a Palit GTX 780 Ti

Edit: I've most of my day so far trying out the methods mentioned here and I got it to install but I can't seem to adjust my monitor resolution. It's a Dell U2711 but its stuck at max of 1600x1200.

Also HWiNFO64 which I use to check temps and stuff can't start up. It shows "checking video adapters' and then crashes, showing that something is not quite right with the driver install.

Edit 2: The weirdest thing is that I installed the file mentioned in this video and after a restart, my resolution was back to normal! My pc was laggy as hell though so I uninstalled the program and the problem returned. This is really confusing me and driving me up the wall.

HELP!!!

try just uninstalling all NVidia drivers and software, go into control panel after and try the windows driver, just to see if that one works, point being just to see if it is a driver issue or the gpu itself...

and I suppose when all else fails try doing a fresh reinstall of windows, sux I know, but when you run into a phantom issue you cant figure out it sometimes works out doing it.
