My computer has downloaded an update for my graphics card viz:

NVIDIA driver update for NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450
Download size: 227.8 MB
This driver was provided by NVIDIA for support of NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450

Unfortunately it seems to be unable to install the update, and now after a number of failures, I cannot do anything graphic. Does anyone know of a fix?

The latest Geforce drivers are the 314.22 which are 221mb. Did you download from Nvidia ?

The damned computer did it without my knowing. So where it's from I dunno. I'd love to turn that facility off I think :-).

Download from Nvidia.com. Windows update will not download graphics card drivers automatically. You would have to tick the box beside it first as it would be a recommended update.

Thanks. Finally used system restore as all this was playing hell with my data cap. Seems to have worked so far.Stopping automatic downloads of updates though as I was unaware it was going on. :-).
