If the NVIDIA display driver installer fails to install because of some type of install error, please provide the following information:
1) Desktop/notebook make or model (if you have a custom PC, simply note Custom PC and provide your motherboard make and model)
2) Please indicated the previous driver version you were using
3) How was the driver installed?
-Express Installation
-Custom Installation
-Custom Installation with option Perform Clean Install selected
4) Is Microsoft UAC enabled/disabled?
5) Have you used any registry cleaner/optimizer/security tool since the last successful NVIDIA driver installation?
6) Are you using any anti-virus program? If so, which one?
7) If you can, please follow the instructions below to provide us with your installation logs:

-Open a Command Prompt window.
-Navigate in the Command Prompt window to the folder where the NVIDIA display driver files were extracted to. For Windows 7 x64 for example, it would be:

C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\275.33\Vista 64-bit\English

-Run the following command:

setup.exe -log:"C:\NVlog" -loglevel:6

-We will need the file generated by the setup installer in the c:\nvlog directory. Also, please send us the setupapi log from here:

C:\Windows\INF\Setupapi.*.log

Another user posted a simpler way for those not familiar with command prompts here:
http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=200543&view=findpost&p=1240721

8) Last but not least, we could also use a Process Monitor log. To do this, download the following utility and unzip it:
http://technet.microsoft.com/sysinternals/bb896645

Open the program and then choose "Save". The saved file will also help us isolate the cause of your installation issue.

Please note, the above does not include installation errors because the driver does not support your product. If you have a notebook which is not supported by this driver and you would like to request that it be added to a future driver, skip down below to the Notebook Display Driver Request section.[/quote]

For the moment, do the best you can to uninstall current graphics driver, then check for Windows updates and use the NVIDIA driver Microsoft is providing (275.33 I believe). Once you have done that it should be easier to troubleshoot the problem.

Windows update will offer you a driver if you enable recommended updates.

Your system is really hosed if you can't even get drivers from Windows update. I would probably just reinstall Windows at this point.
