Graphics Adaptor not in Driver List

Post by flashstar »

Hi, I have been running Longhorn 4053 for a while and everything works except for an irritating graphics problem. After installation, I tried installing my Nvidia graphics drivers for my 7800gtx on Nforce 4 Fatal1ty An8. However it said that setup could not find my graphics adaptor. Sure enough, when I went into the device manager, my graphics adaptor is simply not there! However, when I right click on my desktop and go to properties and then to adaptor, I see that there are 3 driver conflicts with several pci to pci bridges. Here is a copy of the error.

Input/Output Range 03B0 - 03BB used by:
PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge
Input/Output Range 03C0 - 03DF used by:
PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge
Memory Range 000A0000 - 000BFFFF used by:
PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge

And in device manager, there are 4 such Pci to pci bridges that say that they do not have enough free resources to use. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Gnome

It might be a LongHorn bug.
Report it to Microsoft in 3...2..1.NOW.

have you tried extracting the driver using WinRAR and select specific driver, click Have Disk, Browse and navigate to the extracted files. There should be a "nv4_disp.inf" or a similar inf file and select this.

Is it the PCIe version? If it is, Windows could be detecting it as a bridge. Try removing the bridges (from the device manager), installing nVidia's INFs and rebooting (this might make Windows install the correct drivers).

I've had this issue before when installing Alcohol 120% on a laptop with an Intel chipset and integrated ATI FireGL graphics. One of alcohol's drivers completely messed up the AGP bus. Uninstalling didn't help, and after a quick look I couldn't find any driver in computer management to remove. I didn't feel like wasting time messing around, so I just used system restore to fix things and never bothered using Alcohol again (after reinstalling it to confirm it as the source of the problem).

If you can't system restore, you might want to try this:

1. Start -> Run -> cmd

2. type:
set DEVMGR_SHOW_DETAILS=1
set DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1
devmgmt.msc

3. in the Computer Management screen that shows up -> View menu -> Show hidden devices

You now might be able to spot whatever driver is *really* causing the problem.
