    [HR][/HR]I am running a sony VGN-AR 870 w7 x64

    I had my 8600
    working fine but I had to update drivers. So I uninstalled the current driver
    because I couldnt update. Now My comp wont even recognize the hardware so I am
    stuck in 800 x 600 and in device manager it says "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter"
    and it wont detect my 8600m gt.

    What to do?

    Ive downloaded the
    most current drivers from NVIDIA but it says no compatibel hardware was found
    and it cannot install. So I went into it manually and went: Update Driver
    Software -> Browse my comp -> let me pick from a list of device drivers on
    my comp (now here it only shows the "Standard VGA Graphics Adapeter") ->Have
    disk -> DISPLAY.DRIVER folder -> then it shows me a huge list of all
    available dirivers. the problem is there are at least 30 different 8600m gt ones
    to choose from. I tried a few and it said "The driver slected for this device
    does not support this version of windows"

    have you double checked the hardware is correctly seated? Id also remove the drivers completely, Go on to Nvidias website and click on the "Auto" function where it autoamtically detects the harwdare on your computer and redirects you to the download yo need. Its below the options to manually select hardware
