it just uses the gnp driver from 2006.

this is a nvidia 9400 GT.

i did a new install , and still, windows cannot find the new driver.

i am not sure where the new driver was installed on my machine, perhaps i can point device manager to it and try that approach.

I should run an installation program when you run it, but if not, look for a C:NVIDIA folder that you can run a setup file from (preferred) or point Device Manager to.

windows determines the driver is up to date when pointing to C:NVIDIA.

Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

If you have a newer driver, go into device manager and remove your video adapter. run the installer executable once rebooted (should come up with standard vga)

Have you extracted the driver set, gone into device manager and updated the driver (pointing to local drive where extracted files reside)? or have you run the executable?

From here: pg 49 http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/260.99/260.99_Win7_WinVista_Desktop_Release_Notes.pdf
1. Click the driver download link.
The license agreement dialog box appears.
2 Click Accept if you accept the terms of the agreement, then either open the file or save
the file to your PC and open it later.
3 Open the NVIDIA driver installation .EXE file to launch the NVIDIA InstallShield
Wizard.
6 Follow the instructions in the NVIDIA InstallShield Wizard to complete the
installation.

You make no mention of what kind of machine you are attempting. If you own a Dell Inspiron 1420, Dell XPS M1330, or Dell XPS M1530, or Dell LatitudeD630 or D630c, it is highly recommended that you first install this Dell software update.
Note: After the driver installation, Windows may default to 16-bpp color and disable the Desktop Window Manager (DWM). To work around this issue, set the color to 32-bpp and then reboot the PC
