installed graphics adapter: not found...but
I have a NVIDIA Geforce GTX 560

Alright, so here's the deal, I get this problem when I attempt to run the disk that came with my graphics card, It says "installed graphics adapter: not found" . " When I click the 'install drivers' button, it says "the graphics adapter installed is not compatible with the current set of drivers". But, it seems everything is working. I had everything professionally inserted into my computer, including a brand new power supply. Everything is running great and noticed changes in my game play. My question is, why would the disk still not recognize the new graphics card? I do have my drivers updated from the NVIDIA main site. Here's a capture to make it more familiar.

Did you uninstall the drivers for your previous graphics card first ?

btw - if you paid someone to install the new graphics card and power supply they should have installed the drivers for you as part of the deal - /thumbsdown.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsdown:' />

BossDweebe is in his second childhood, or would be if he'd ever left the first.

Yeah, I had a built in one. It was called "adi graphics card". I made sure I rid of everything involving that. I kept receiving an error from that previous graphics card after I had the new one put in telling me it no longer compatible and it wanted me to enable it or upgrade it. But, since I removed it, I no longer have that issue.

I know, my computer had a hiccup and it wouldn't let them get onto my windows after that installed everything. I had to take it home and get it onto windows first. I was so pissed. But, I'm just glad my computer wasn't further damaged. Of course they never take the blame for that stuff, so, it was up to me from there.

Btw, what is the difference between the drivers the disk is going to install and the drivers I installed from the NVIDIA site?

Apologies for all the questions, I'm very new at this.

The driver disk contains older version of drivers and the NVIDIA websites has latest driver which include latest game profiles for better gaming experience.

Try a manual installation of driver and check.

So, would I have to re-download the same driver, but install/update it as it says?

I downloaded the Geforce -> Geforce 500 series -> Windows 7 64-bit

No need to redownload. The file should have already extracted in
C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\2xx.xx

Just follow the steps for the manual installation of the driver.

It says everything is up to date. 'The best driver software for your device is already installed'.

If this helps, this is what I have installed in my control panel with NVIDIA:
