Have you checked Window Update? Some drivers show up after a scan, albeit I highly doubt the appearance of the nVidia drivers on 'WU'. If you still have the installation disc, it might be a goof idea to run it WHILE THE PC IS ON' and choose the option to install software (on the disc), but avoid FULL SYSTEM install option.

judging by the spec that u listed from speccy which is a lot different than what u listed,an i3 and nvidia ??? i say ur laptop does not have any nvidia card to begin with.it should show up even if u deleted the driver as 3d video controller.

I had the same problem and I struggled to fix it as well.

But after stumbling over something random I managed to fix it.

This is my solution:

Windows Defender Security Centre has a warning sign.
I clicked on it and then clicked on Device Performance and Health which brought a troubleshooter and it did a scan on my laptop and found the issues. I clicked on 'Apply fix' for every issue and restarted my laptop.

It restored the graphics card to the Display adapters.

I dont know if this will work for everyone but it helped me.

I have the same problem and no matter where i look, all i see is the intel card... scanning for hardware changes doesn't work. also looking in specs doesn't work. it's like by deleting the driver i deleted the hardware... so bizarre.

Start a new thread with all the details of your problem (what it is, how it started) and all of your specs. You'll struggle to find much help jumping into an old thread with a vaguely similar problem.

it isn't vaguely similar, it's exactly the same problem. 100%. if there was a solution, i want to know. this question appears all over the internet and i can't find a thread with a real solution - everything is just suggestions, and the original posters never confirmed that something worked. it is EXACTLY the same problem so if i can find out what they did, i assume it will fix it. i don't feel that starting a new thread for the same thing is productive.

We never even got the original poster's full specs, so it's hard to say. There are a *lot* of different causes of these symptoms.

We don't do "catch-all" threads for things like this and people tend not to click on "solved" threads.
