    Nvidia GT750 ti
    Hi Everyone
    I have an old(ish ) system running Windows 7. I recently installed a second-hand GTX750 ti 2G card as I needed a graphics card to work with Fusion 360. I downloaded the driver and everything worked well for a while, but now Fusion is only finding 128MB of memory and subsequently can’t process anything. I get an error message when opening Fusion that says ‘The software renderer is being used: it could be because the graphics card is not powerful enough or its driver is not installed’.

    I checked the device manager and it says there weren’t any issues with the card. The driver report said there was an error: ‘Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)’

    I have followed the prompts to check for appropriate drivers but it tells me that the up- to-date driver is installed. Version 9.18.13.4052

    IF the card itself is fine can anyone suggest what the issue might be?

    I have tried downloading various versions of the driver from the nvidia site.

    AMD Athlon™ II x2 250 processor 3.00 GHz. 8GB RAM. 64bit Windows Home Premium.

    Thanks in advance

    Did you try running DDU and then installing the latest WHQL package? Are you sure Windows isn't broken?
    Although, this could also indicate a hardware error (starting from a loosely seated PCI-E card to burned PCB, either card or motherboard).
    Sometimes this could also be a firmware (aka BIOS) misconfiguration/bug (usually solved with a CMOS reset, preferably after a version update if available).

    For Windows, may be try to run these (one after the other, if DDU didn't help, although can't remember if Win7 has the appropriate DISM function or it's Win8+ but worst case you get an error):
    sfc /scannow
    dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
