November 24th

The fan on the graphics card in the home theatre system has been getting louder and louder, so I was looking to replace it.  I found that the nVidia GT7xx cards can fake 2160p without needing HDMI 2.0 (which is a 9xx feature), so I bought a GT730.  It arrived, so I took the PC apart, installed it, then went through the driver installation process about 50 times.  It's obviously working, as I can see the screen, but it's not loading the nVidia drivers.  I think it's something to do with it installing the default VGA drivers, as it's saying it can't find an nVidia card at all.  The problem is that each time I try with the drivers that the card came with, it downloads 280+Mb, so the process is slow.  I left the PC running a chkdsk /f and went to bed.
