Nvidia Graphics cards are the most common graphics card on the market today. However, there is a problem where Nvidia’s display settings are not available.
This error is caused by a problem with the driver. The driver can be found in the Control Panel and it controls how your computer handles graphics and various other tasks like your monitor settings and resolution.
The best way to resolve this issue is to update your drivers and restart your computer so that it can continue loading successfully.
Fix 1: Uninstall Previous Nvidia Drivers
This section will cover how to uninstall old Nvidia drivers, so that you can install the latest ones.
Some of the problems with old Nvidia drivers are driver not found, installation error and system exception. These problems happen because your hardware is either outdated or incompatible.
However, after you uninstall the old Nvidia drivers and install the newest ones, you can solve those problems and take advantage of new features.
Fix 2: Update Graphics Card Firmware
keywords: graphics card updates, video card update
The GPU firmware is the software that runs on the graphics card. It determines how the card communicates with your system. The latest firmware provides performance improvements for PCs with Intel HD Graphics 3000, 2000, and 1000 series of integrated graphics.
This fix can be accomplished in just a few steps:
- Restart your computer to enter Safe Mode
- Press Windows Key + R to bring up the Run box
- Type “msconfig” without quotes
- Uncheck “Use recommended options” in the General tab
- Click Apply, then OK.
Fix 3: Changing the output of the adapter
If the display cable is properly connected to the graphics card and the error message persists, it’s worth experimenting with a converter or changing the output format of the graphics hardware.
Alternatively, you can use a VGA to HDMI converter in conjunction with the HDMI port on your graphics card.
Alternatively, you can directly change the output format, for example, by using a Display port instead of HDMI or VGA. Make your own combinations and see if this works.
Fix 4: Verify that the NVIDIA Display Driver Service is running
On your computer, NVIDIA runs a service that manages the display driver.
It supports your operating system and functions as a sort of intermediary between your NVIDIA hardware and your operating system.
In some cases, this service is disabled, and as a result, the computer is unable to detect your NVIDIA hardware.
- Press Windows + R and then type “services.msc” in the dialogue box.
- Navigate through each service until you reach the NVIDIA Display Driver Service.
- Select Properties from the context menu of the right-clicked item.
- Restore can be downloaded by clicking here.
- If the Start button does not appear highlighted for clicking, press Apply.
- Once you’ve verified that the service is operational, check to see if the error message persists.
