WindowsXP...  I have 2 items listed in Display Adapters

NVIDIA GeFOrce 7100 / NVIDIA nForce 630i
NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS

The top one....has a yellow exclamation icon by it.    I look at the properties and it says
This device cannot start. (Code 10)    

I look at Driver info and it has

Provider     NVIDIA
Date           7/9/10

And if I do an Update Driver..it tells me the wizard could not find a better match for the hardware than the software you currently hae installed.

I did an update to that driver today.     Actually tried it a couple times.    Did restarts to the PC, but still have the exclamation mark

Go to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us and download the most updated drivers.  Uninstall the problem device and do not restart.  Install the setup file downloaded from nvidia then restart.  This should fix the problem.
