I just installed Windows Vista Home Basic (32-bit) on a customized computer with a GeForce 7800 GS NVIDIA video card. But after I installed the latest driver for the 7-series graphics card for a 32-bit vista (), every time the user account control window would pop up (v. 160.62) the screen would display short little black lines all over it. This would also occur when logging into any user from the vista welcome screen. My computer would also randomly display texts weird and choppy too. So I uninstalled the driver from my Device Manager and used Vista to locate a driver my video card. I've been using the selected driver for about a week or so, and it has worked good enough, besides flashing a black screen when a computer pop-up (like the user account control) is displayed. I've also noticed that, since vista downloaded the driver for itself, I don't have access to the NVIDIA control panel (needed to configure my two monitors more to my liking...). So I decided I'd uninstall the driver vista selected and manually download a previous driver from NVIDIA's website (v. 182.50), once downloaded and the installer had been started a pop-up displayed: "NVIDIA Setup Program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now close." What should I do? I went back to my Device Manager and I couldn't find a link to my video card or any similar hardware... is it the installer's glitch or is there a way to locate my video card? How can I solve my dilemma?
Thank you so much,
