NVIDIA Graphics Driver Update

Hello, On April 10th, I received an update to my GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 through Windows update (was marked as an important update). Since then I keep getting error messages in event viewer that show the NVIDIA Daemon and updater fail. The message I receive is "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the applications support team for more information." " Microsoft Visual ++C Runtime Library." In event viewer the details are listed as "The service did not start due to a login failure." and "The specified account password has expired." How am I supposed to know the password assigned to this service? Should I roll back driver? I can get no support help from NVIDIA. I am hoping someone has come across this password thing before and can tell me what to do. By the way, the service logon is not local, but something else I don't recognize. Thanks for any help or advice you can give.

I know you worked it out, but if you have problems downloading driver updates you can always go to Windows Icon on the bottom left of your screen click it. Then click on "Computer", when in "Computer" look to the top left and you'll see "System Properties", click that when the window opens with your computer information on the right on the left is a blue shaded area... it says; "Control Panel Home", underneath that it says "Device Manager", "Remote Settings", etc. click on "Device Manager". A window will come up that is a box with your computer's name, underneath that "Computer", "Disk Drives", "Display Adapters", etc... click the little arrow to the left of "Display Adapters" and NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 will drop down, click it and it will turn blue, right click and a box will open that says "Update Driver", "Disable", "Uninstall", "Scan for Hardware Changes" and "Properties".  Click on "Properties", click the "Driver" tab you will be able to see the version and the date of the last update you can click on the "Details" button towards the bottom of the tab if you want(it's certificate info-programmer/techie talk and not necessary). Underneath the "Details" button is "Update Driver" button, click that and go from there.  I believe it asks if you want it to get the update from online or your computer... obviously you want it from Microsoft online and it will update from there. I've had to do that when something or another wouldn't update so I had to manually update and that's how you do it.  If I were you I would look at all the sub-buttons(the left arrows next to each item in the Device Manager box so that you are familiar with what is in there, just in case you ever have to do a manual update or if you are having computer issues.  Because at the top of the Device Manager box if you click on a sub-item(like this, but one you are having problems with)a printer not working or something of the sort not only does the item become blue but the top of the Device Manager box will then show icons that you can hover over and do things like scanning for changes to programs, drivers, etc. and see if something was randomly changed and go back and either update a driver or go back to an older driver and things like that.  Like SC Tom, I like to be the master of my computer's destiny I have my computer set to tell me when there are updates and I decide what gets updated and sometimes I just do my updates myself.

Answer

Another reason not to use Windows Updater for hardware drivers :-(

If you go here <  http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us  > and pick the GeForce 6 Series and your appropriate OS, you can download the driver directly from Nvidia. Once you have it downloaded, run the installation and pick "Clean install" instead of "Update".

Or you can use System Restore to go back to right before the MS update; there should be an entry for "Installed GeForce update blah blah blah". That's the point you want to use.

Were there any other updates installed at the same time? I'm not sure why you would be getting the password and C++ messages unless there were, or it really was part of MS's GeForce update, in which case, the rollback or installation of the Nvidia driver should take care of it.
