Hi- I need this fixed urgently as i have design work to do
I was recently doing windows updates when i viewed the optional section (windows 7 and vista users know what im talking about) where there was a new Graphic card driver for my 9800 gx2 this got me all excited as i have been playing COD MW2 and have been having pretty poor FPS to what i was expecting.
Anyways i installed the driver using windows update restarted and tried to run COD where i got an error regarding Directx i tried other games and software which are GFX based- i went into device manager and saw that under display adapters both of my GFX cards (its a GX2) has a yellow ! mark beside it. i right clicked and viewed properties this is the device status message
Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (code 43)
I have tried system restore- which failed first and second time
i have tried uninstalling in safe mode and normal mode and using drive sweeper, just everytime windows starts, its as if it wasnt allowing any changes
i tried installing older drivers and beta drivers
I have now reformated and tried to install with the older drivers but still does not work!!!
Does anyone have any idea as to why my card is doing this? i will test my card in another pc a little later today just to confirm that it is not damaged.

Regards and thank you for reading my very long post
EDIT: by the way i have looked into it alot and tried more or less everything except this
I have never heard of AGP aperture size and iTS NT GNNA BE IN MY BIOS COS MY BOARD DOESNT SUPPORT AGP- maybe its something different on EVGa mobos hope this helps
