You are not currently using a display attached to an Nvidia GPU
Hello all, I just upgraded from my windows xp sp2 x86 to an windows 7 ultimate 64 bits. My hardware specs are: Fujitsu siemens esprimo P5730 core 2 duo E8400 My video card is an EVGA geforce gt610 1Gb. on my new setup after installing nvidia driver 310.90 whql i get the following error: You are not currently using a display attached to an Nvidia GPU. My tv screen is connected via hdmi cable to my video card. I did some searching on the web but i get no resolution on how to fix it. I have tried installing older drivers with no luck, just installing the graphic driver only with no other other modules and still no luck. Also tried to unlock the installation file in its properties and then running it as administrator with no luck. Please advise.

My tv screen is connected via hdmi cable to my video card.

The 64 bits installations can work with more RAM. The 32 bits can also do this but then you have to fiddle with the PAE settings of windows. And not all games/ drivers can work with the software mod of windows PAE. But i am kinda upset about that no official statement from on of the Gforce/ Nvidia guys has been made as allot of people have this issue.

I probably should be a little clearer on the issue I am having. I have been using driver 310.70 ever since it came out with no issues. I updated to 310.90, clean install, and every time I turn my pc on from a cold boot screen resolution goes to standard vga and I get the pop up message on desktop "You are not currently using a display attached to an Nvidia GPU". I then do a clean install of 310.70 and everything work well again. Has anyone herd if ManuelG is going to release a hot fix? Alot of people are having this issue!
