Device manager is saying that i have a 280 GTX but the nvidia driver doesnt.
Nvidia setup is saying:
"The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit."
Cd driver doesnt work either.

Does someone know the problem of this?
Vista has installed a legacy driver for your GTX295. (In Device Manger right click it, select properties, look at the Driver Tab and it'll say the Driver Provider is Microsoft.)

So in Device Manger (close that properties window you were looking at if its still open) right click the GTX295 and select uninstall. Close Device Manger and restart Computer.

After restarting, don't let windows install/ reinstall any drivers for it. (It is nice Vista has Drivers that work for the Desktop and u can have normal resolution. But you cant play games with them of course.)

Now try and install the nVidia Drivers.
