FSX Settings Display Device shows wrong graphics card(s)

Recommended Posts

I attempted to update my nVidia GeForce 650 Ti card to the latest driver - this is my only graphics card.  After the program I used (DriverReviver) said that the driver was updated, my FSX Settings-Display-Device showed me that I had two graphics cards installed GEFORCE 550 Ti.0 AND GEFORCE 550 Ti.1 and no reference to my installed 650 Ti card.  Before the update, I had only the normal GeForce 650 Ti showing in the "device" dropdown box, nothing else.  My fsx.cfg file lists only the 650 Ti exactly as it had before - the only change in the .cfg file was a re-set to 1024 textures because I had looked in the display file.  I went back into DriverReviver and re-installed my old drivers, but the problem with the FSX Settings-Display-Device is still present.  Any help as to what to do would be appreciated.  Thanks, Scott :)

Download the correct drivers for your card and operating system from Nvidia.

In Controol Panel, uninstall the video driver.

After re-boot, install the driver.

In FSX.CFG, delete all the Display.Device entries. The next time you start FSX, the correct entries will be added.
