My System Specs

Default My driver problem is solved

The problem was an incompatibility between My Win 7 64-bit OS and Nvidia video drivers.

In short I can't use Nvidia based Graphics cards.

I changed from my brand new MSI GTX 560 Twin Frozr II to my XFX Radeon HD 5670 and now I have no driver errors.

When I get around Three-hundred and five dollars saved up I'll be buying a MSI Radeon HD 6950 Twin Frozr III from Newegg.ca.

that can't be right it google shows a lot of people with 560's having problems with the 266.66 drivers have you tried other drivers including beta drivers?


if none of the drivers worked then it most likely is MSI GTX 560 Twin Frozr II :(

It doesn't matter what brand or series of Nvidia cards I use and I'm always using the most recent drivers I always get the Driver error.

So that is why I'm switching to AMD video cards so I can not get that annoying error.
