NVIDIA Graphic Card not working with Win8

    Question

  • NVIDIA Graphic Card (Xfx Geforce Gts 250 1G Series 200 For 7&Vista 64) not working with Win8. NVIDIA Windows Display Driver Installer (197.45_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit_english_whql) and(275.33-desktop-win7-winvista-64bit-english-whql) were working well with Win7 (64Bit) and not only can not be installed on Win8, but also Win8 crashes and have to reinstall Win8 again!!!

    Any suggestion?

    Have you tried to install drivers using Compatibility mode?  If not, give it a try.

    1. Right click on setup file
    2. Click on Properties
    3. Click on Compatibility tab
    4. Put a check mark on Run this program in compatibility mode for:
    5. Select Windows 7
    6. Put a check mark on Run this program as an administrator under Privilege Level

    Have you tried to install it under compatibility mode? Check for Windows update most if the display drivers are coming through Windows Update.

  • This is a buggy developer preview, if it doesn't work you should report it using the feedback tool. You could wait till the appropriate drivers are avaible.
