No GPU drivers are working?

So i have an old pc i'm considering using but when i try to install the gpu drivers...it doesn't work. I've tried downloading JUST the driver and also geforce experience but the installation always fails.

The complete specs below:

-Athlon 64 3500+

-2x512mb ddr2 667mhz

-Nvidia Geforce 9300GE (newest part as i wanted hdmi output for oldish/retro games

-ASUS M2NPV-MX motherboard

-Kingston A400 120gb ssd (FOR THE SPEED)

I originally tried on windows XP and it didn't work so then i tried windows 7...didn't work, then windows 10.......still didn't work. 

 

Is the last option to flash it's bios with a different GPU from the 9000 series?

Did you manually pick "Geforce, GeForce 9 Series, the correct OS version, Standard, and Recommended/Certified"?  The last driver version for your GPU would be GeForce 342.01 Driver - WHQL from Wed Dec 14, 2016.

Yeah, thats the version i tried. I just searched geforce 9300ge drivers and i brought me to the nvidia website where i chose my gpu, os version then just clicked the download. Whereas for windows xp, i only tried to manually install the driver file. (i did both a manual install and geforce experience install on windows 7/10 but not for windows xp.)

Sorry, yes, i tried version 340 for xp but the others were 342 as they were the newest. I ALSO tried the 342 version on xp because i dont know whats going on and just wanted it to work.

I just wanna say though, the gpu works fine on linux (and it's default linux drivers.).

Wait for XP did you try that driver?  Because the last supported driver for XP is 340.52.

I don't use Linux a lot, so I'm not sure if those are official are not.  I'd try rolling back/using slightly older versions of the driver to see if any work.  If not, I'm out of ideas.

Ok thanks for the help, i'll try one more time. If it doesn't work then i'll see if flashing the bios fixes anything.
