  1. NVIDIA GeForce GT640 & Microsoft Basic Display Adapter Issue


    Hello,
    My first post here, and I'm no computer scientist, so please understand my lack of understanding.

    I have a HP Pavilion p6774y I purchased new MANY years ago. In the middle of December, I upgraded from Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) to Windows 10 Pro (x64) ver. 1909. It had many failures attempting to upgrade until I disabled the Driver Signature requirment. Then it went through smoothly. When I upgraded I was still using the integrated ATI/AMD HD4200 GPU. Since then I have tried to upgrade my GPU with NVIDIA.

    According to HP, the BIOS on my motherboard cannot be updated any further than it is now. The BIOS is 6.11. Because of that, I am limited to NVIDIA GT6xx cards or "smaller". I have upgraded the CPU to a 1065T and the power supply to 600W.

    I used DDU to remove the AMD/ATI drivers and put in the most recent (441.66) NVIDIA driver. Installed a NVIDIA GeForce GT640 card, and it has not worked properly yet. I have been talking to NVIDIA tech support for days. Their recommendation is to try the card in a different PC for testing. Not really an option for me.

    Here is a brief list of what I see:

    The Display Adapter shows Microsoft Basic Display Adapter.
    The drivers, hardware IDs, manufacturer, etc all show NVIDIA.
    Hardware Acceleration is not enabled (possibly because it is showing as Microsoft BDA)
    The aspect ratio is wrong (large black boarder around image on screen)
    I see from GPU-Z that there is no memory, yet the card is supposed to have 2GB
    The NVIDIA drivers installation went smoothly with no "hiccups"...It "saw" the NVIDIA card.
    The NVIDIA Control Panel will not open. (d/l'd from the Microsoft Store). When you click on it in the APPS panel, nothing happens MOST of the time. On RARE OCCASION I will get the "legaleese" window, but never further than that.

    I have screen shots of info from both the Device Manager and GPU-Z

    I obviously would like to get Windows to fully recognize the NVIDIA card (I have another one being delivered, because this one might just be bad ie. no memory instead of 2GB).

  2. Update Microsoft Basic Display Adapter for Nvidia Geforce

    I have installed Nvidia Geforce GTX 870M on my Alienware (Dell) computer but the Microsoft Basic Display adapter can't find the PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1199&SUBSYS_05511028.

    That should be the address to Nvidia cards, but still, only Microsoft Basic Display is in the list of devices.

    I've tried to install any and many of Nvidia drivers, but none of them have the right address in their INF-files. Still messages saying Nvidia installer cannot continue, or, Driver not compatible (because the Microsoft BD can't find the card).

    Can I uninstall the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter or at least Update so it can find the right address to Geforce GTX 870M driver?

    I simply need a driver for Nvidia Geforce GTX870M that have the "10DE" and "1199" and "05511028" in their Driver INF-files so the Microsoft driver for Basic Display can fint it!

    Microsoft Basic Display Adapter doesn't go away.

    Hi FrustratedPerson_01

    Is the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter listed alongside your NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti card in the Display Adapters section?

    If so, that would mean you also have on-board graphics as well as your Nvidia card and there is no driver loaded for that device

    In Device Manager, expand out the Processors section, what is the exact model of Processor listed there?

    Microsoft Basic Display Adapter issue

    Hi all,

    I have a brand new setup with the below:

    OS: Windows 10 Home 64-bit

    Processor: AMD Ryzen Quad Core 3.6 GHz

    Memory: 8 GB RAM

    Graphics: nvidia geforce gtx 1050 ti

    DirectX: Version 12

    But for some reason the system only recognizes the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter and ignores the Nvidia one. I have updated the Nvidia drive and tried many suggested 'fixes' to no avail. Both show up in the Device Manager but the system just won't swap
    solely to the Nvidia setting.

    Most of the help assumes updating to Windows 10 - I've found nothing about a new setup like mine. Please help - any games I try to play have pretty bad issues.

    Thanks
