Hi,

I am installing the latest update for a 9600G driver, but the installation is stuck halfway for over an hour( the installation progress bar hasnt moved a millimeter). Im kind off panicking because i dont know alot of drivers and computers etc.

Can someone help me out or tell me what to do?

You'll just have to bomb it out. Kill it from Task Manager, or just reboot. Windows may come back up with only its generic VGA driver loaded, but that's nothing to worry about.

Try installing the drivers from Safe Mode instead.

Did you uninstall the old drivers first or try to install over the top? It's best to uninstall first. Some people even use Drivercleaner or Driversweeper to remove any traces as well. I only do this if I've had a problem (like yours). So you may want to try this.

No i didnt uninstall first, actually dont have an idea how to do that lol.

So if i end it with taskmanager, go to the download link, and try to reinstall, would that work?

You can uninstall the drivers from Control Panel, 'Add or Remove Programs' (XP) or 'Programs and Features' (Vista or Win 7). But only if you have previously installed nVidia drivers (recommended). If it's using the 'built-in' Windows ones, you don't really need to remove them first.

Are you using that 'automatic' driver install on nVidia's web site? If so, I would avoid it and actually download the drivers and run the install from your hard drive. As I said, try doing it from Safe Mode. This may avoid the problem with the install getting stuck half way. You can get into Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key just before Windows starts to load. Just as the summary page of the hardware comes up when you boot the machine, where it lists all the IRQs, start tapping the F8 key. It will bring up a menu where you can choose Safe Mode. Once you've installed the drivers, just reboot normally.

So actually I did the following:

I killed the installation with task manager and went to system recovey, but that failed twice, so i go check out nvidea's website and it says this:

Product NVIDIA GeForce 9600M
Current Installed Driver GT 186.81
Recommended Update
NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT 186.81 Your PC currently has the latest driver installed for your GPU. No driver update is necessary at this time.

So everything is fine now? Or is there a catch?
