Not Digitally signed.....



Trying to install a new Nvidia GeForce 3 driver. Didn't care about MS warning about the driver not being Digi. Signed, ang pressed continue.
When I'm done, I get a warning (see picture)
Any idea anyone???
btw, I'm using nvidias last driver for XP...
When I restart the computer, it's in 640*480, and is not using GF3. ( which is disabled in dev. mngr.)
When I choose to enable GF3, is't using the old XP driver again...

da rock

just a thought,but did you remove your old drvs before you tried
to load the new ones? to make sure you're not having any drv
conflicts you might want to try the det.destroyer
can find it @ .:cool:


How are you trying to install it? Using it's own setup.exe or through device mgr (should be the former). And the prior post is correct - make sure you've uninstalled the old drivers first.


Since it worked so nice and easy in winMe I didn't unistall the old drivers.
I'll try and post an answer later.

btw som off topic, Crashed my car... well, some idiot didn't stop for me. SO the only driving I do now is in NFS PU:D


Well, tried the destroyer, but got an error.
Tried to unistall the driver, restartet, and the stupid xp driver installed itself... Tried to add an new hardware, display, but all I can choose from is GeForce..
So, HOW can I turn of that stupid self fixing driver installer in XP??
No mather what I do, It finds the new hardware and install that stupid xp driver (12.40 i think)

Im reaching out with both hands now folks...

......try this...

first uninstall the drivers like you already have
through the device manager
and than dont restart
just go str8 ahead n install the new drivers
n than restart
it worked for me...
it was on this site i think...or maybe a diff one
hope it works


tried alot in the weekend. Finally, removed the XP nvidia inf files. hehe, no more auto finding.
Pointed to my new dell geforce driver, when new hardware pops up, but sadly, got the same error.
Think I have to reinstall my system.. damn.

thanks alot for all help.

Hence only use the drivers from nvidia disk or site. Leaked are unfinished and unstable which possible fucks up your system.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
