"You are not currently using a display attached to an NVIDIA GPU"

I just turned my new computer on and got this message. I haven't got internet on my desktop yet, and havent installed the drivers for it from Geforce.com Could this be why??
I also don't have win. 7 activated yet..
Well, get 7 activated, then use latest drivers from GeForce.com.
Do you think it will honestly make a difference? In device manager I tried manually searching forupdates and none were found forthecard
Yeah, you must install the drivers from nVidia for the graphics card to work correctly. Also install the necessary drivers for other parts of the system, such as motherboard chipset, ethernet port, audio, etc.
Do I get those drivers from one of the cds?
Well, you have another computer that can access the internet.

I would not bother with the CD.

For the motherboard drivers, visit the manufacturer's webpage, find your motherboard model, then download the appropriate version (of OS) of drivers for your motherboard. Put it on a USB thumb drive or something, then install it on the new PC.

For the graphics, download it from GeForce.
Motherboard model?
I already used the cd and manually got some nvidia drivers... ver. 296.10
Yeah, who made your motherboard, and what model is it?
uhh...Have no clue honestly.This is the comp. I have spoken to you before. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883229262
I am doing a system restore to see ifanything changes
Download CPU-Z, and run it on the new computer. Motherboard section will tell you the company that made it, and the model name.

But the CD had 296.10? That's the latest WHQL drivers. It's possible that the CD they gave you contains latest drivers for the motherboard as well.

The drivers that Windows automatically installs often do this, they obviously aren't the full driver package. With such Windows update drivers, you'll get this kind of message from nvpanel and also from stuff that messes directly with the cards, like MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision.

I've also successfully installed drivers before activating Windows, but stuff seems to work better once it's all set up correctly.
I guess I can't really see much until I get internet...any cause why i would get that error though?(getting a wireless usb card here in a bit)
I havent even installed any windows updates..no internet
As mentioned, use driver CDs they supplied. Install motherboard drivers from them.
Re-trying themotherboard disc now.
installing GIGABYTE utilities... (ill keep updating)
