Did you uninstall your previous drivers before installing the new drivers?

You might want to uninstall them, restart and then use a driver cleaner.

Also, if you used the drivers from the CD they are always outdated and might be causing problems. Try the latest WHQL from the nvidia site.

Only a 4500 on 3dmark06 is pretty low. I myself have this card and i score 13k 3dmark06. Maybe your power supply is not giving sufficient power. Make sure your pci-express x16 is also set to x16 and not something dumb like x1 or x4

That's low. Uninstall driver, run the drivers cleaner and install latest driver.

Theres your problem, you should never just install over old drivers.

Uninstall your drivers, restart your computer, then install the latest WHQL from the nvidia site and restart again.

Very important to restart also, don't skip that step.



Also, CCleaner doesn't do anything with drivers. It deletes temp files and cleans your registry.

What do you mean? to uninstall them?

Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > NVIDIA > put a check in "Remove only the following" and check NVIDIA Display driver. Leave the rest unchecked.

Then restart your computer when asked and go here to get new drivers:
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us


I'd also recommend running ccleaner again, both registry and temp files after restarting the first time and before installing the new drivers. That will make sure all the drivers are cleaned out.

Delete the entire NVIDIA folder under C:/ and that message won't appear.
