6600GT AGP Windows 7 32 bit - won't install drivers
Hi

I have a new 6600GT AGP card that I'm trying to get working on an oldish machine running Windows 7. Windows 7 is not recognizing the card as a 6600GT and when I try to install the Win7 drivers I get an error 'The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware'. I've tried to install the drivers that came with the card but I think they're XP and it gives me an error that 'this is not windows'. There is a yellow question mark next to the 'Video Controller' in the device manager. I've tried the latest drivers 195.62 and also 186.18. Both have the same issue.

I rebooted to XP (I still have it on the machine) and the set of drivers that came with the card installs and it works fine.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Nick

Can you download a GPU-Z Utility run it on Windows XP and take screenshot of GPU-Z while running on Windows XP?

That is a FAKE GeForce 6600 GT but is ATI Redeon, take a look on real GeForce 6600GT card information on GPU-Z below and compare it with your card information and you can see it, on GPU section list a Chip been used and Geforce 6600GT based on NV43 but your's is M10 / M11 which indicated as Mobility Redeon 9600, about GPU section you can try search about GPU information on [url="http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php?card1=16&card2=548"]here[/url]. I guess you're been cheat by get a fake card try cheat as 6600GT along with the driver has been modified by those cheater, and that's a reason why NVIDIA driver unable to installed on your system

Wow!! How interesting! I'm only after something AGP that has enough to play some kids games on an older machine and they're not that easy to come by. I'll go back to the seller about the FAKEness - it was an eBay purchase.

Out of interest - does that mean that if I install ATI drivers on Win7 it will work!

Yes, your card probably will work if the ATI Catalyst Driver that support Mobility Redeon 9600M

Sorry for resurrecting an old post but this problem happens to me. Ive had the card since i bought it off newegg and it worked flawlessly on win xp but now the drivers wont recognize the card under win 7 32 bit...... omega drivers from like 2007 work somewhat but i'd rather have the latest. Please help.
