NVIDIA graphics cards sometimes  experience driver-related problems. After installing the latest NVIDIA  drivers, they've found that the Second Life® viewer crashes with an  error message that states: "Second Life is unable to run because your  video card drivers did not install properly, are out of date, or are for  unsupported hardware." To the best of our knowledge, this appears to be  a problem with the NVIDIA drivers' initial installation: the first time  the install process is run, something fails silently -- a file or set  of files doesn't copy properly, but the installer doesn't give you any  notice that something went wrong.

There is a solution: ensure that all of your applications are  closed, and install the NVIDIA drivers again. For some reason, the  drivers almost always install correctly the second time.

If these steps do not solve your problem, please see NVIDIA's Driver Installation Hints
