Quick question here, DAZ ...
When you did the Windows Updates, was there a hardware update included for your video adapter? The reason I ask is that I've seen Many times where
the Hardware updates from Windows ( especially for video adapters) are often times incorrectly detected. Everthing seems fine and the updates are
completed, yet when you restart the video reverts back to a default VGA due to an incorrect driver from Microsux.
I'd suggest doing as ArMap mentions. Go into Control Panel Add/Remove and get rid of Any video drivers, Nvidia or otherwise. Then go to Device
Manager and "uninstall" Any existing video adapters showing. Restart your PC. When it boots up and prompts you install the drivers for your video
adapter, just hit cancel. Now, run the installation program for the latest drivers from
. Once that has completed, Restart your PC.
If you're still having problems, let us know.
Just a reminder:
To avoid these types of issues in the future don't use the video hardware drivers "detected" by Windows Update, just stick with those available
from the manufacturer's website ... in this case Nvidia.
Hope this helps.
