i had to reinstall XP OS on my XPS M1530 machine. the previous nVidia driver(which was working perfectly b4 reinstalling) seems not working well as i have got couple of times BSOD problem.
then i have tried three different version which r 180.84,185.85_notebook_winxp_32bit_whql, 186.18_desktop_winxp_32bit_english_whql. none of them r good cause i can defference the video quality of the movies.
presently i reverse back to the nvidia_gfgo_17637_xp32, it seems bit better than those others but still i m not happy with the video quality.
One of my friend is having Dell Studio 1535 (vista 64 bit). After formatting the system fingerprint reader is not working properly and is asking for driver (he used the cd that came along laptop but it is not working).
I also tried to look on the dell website but unable to find proper driver
I have a Touchsmart 15-j040us notebook that is now a little over a year old (now out of warranty). My laptop has been asking to upgrade to Windows 8.1 since the first week or two after I purchased the system brand new.
The update downloads just fine and begins the install but fails every time when it is trying to install the different devices. At that point the screen goes black, the laptop reboots and I get an error message saying that update did not work and that the system has been restored to its previous condition.
After working through HP tech support, including sending the laptop to them to reimage, I am still unable to perform the update, which means my laptop is incapable of running the apps and programs that HP says my laptop is ready to run.
I am fairly confident that the issue is the Nvidia video driver. The currently supported version (version 9.xxx) of the driver is not compatible with 8.1. HP has a driver listed that is compatible with 8.1 (version 10.xxx), but I can't download it until my laptop is running 8.1. Nvidia has posted on the site a driver that is compatible with both operating systems, but I can't seem to download and install it so that I can perform the update. How to download the driver from Nvidia so that I can perform this update?
I am in search of the driver number in the title. It came factory preinstalled from dell and I had the installation files on disk, but accidentally deleted them, defragged, and now they're gone (save for if Power Data Recovery can recover them, Recuva already failed at that ).
Does anybody still have these babies? I ordered my laptop the first of October in Europe, so anyone that has ordered or received their laptop in around now should have these installed. They said they were revision A08, but it's nowhere to be found.
These are the only current drivers that would allow hybrid sli stuff to work, so I really need those. They came with a NVDJ.inf and WHQL certificate. I believe the driver date was around 26/06/2009, and I have scoured the dell ftp site for anything released around that date or later, but found nothing. Also laptopvideo2go doesn't have them. Currently running the NVIDIA notebook drivers, but they don't support the hybrid thing.
I tried installing the latest 185.81 driver from nvidia but vista will not let it function.
I get a message while the driver is installing, something along the lines of "vista can only use signed drivers, blah blah, some devices may not work properly." Is there a work around for this? Or do I have to use an older driver?
Btw, I am using vista 64bit with SP1. Trying to get the drivers to run dual 9800gt's
Got my new XPS M1730 in December 2008 and all was well for the first few months till the graphic issues started and the Nvidia driver stopped working and has recovered problem.
So three new cards and after a long battle they eventually agreed to swap me out with an Alieware M17X R2.
I have two questions .....
what happens if i still have the old XPS in a box upstairs waiting to be collected and they have not collected it after 3 months and will they even want it back now...they did say they wanted it back and i would be contacted when this collection had been arranged ...
however three months have passed and im not going to phone them and ask them to come get it ....and also what can i do to get the machine back to working properly ... ie how can i find out if it definitly is the graphic card and what are my
options .... are the 9800 cards plauged with the same problems . As for the Alienware im not convinced i like it as much as i did the XPS ... fan noise during gaming is almost embarrasing ...
The Nvidia driver for my Inspiron 5720 does not recognize my card and won't install. It is the 630M.I did a clean format and set BIOS values to default. The latest BIOS is installed.The drive is from Dell's website.
i believe my nvidia is somewhat a bit twweaked by acer so it performs with the laptop,anyways what driver you use for yours, my driver is horrible and yes its new...i need a good one gaming, no overclocks cause it heats my laptop up causeing lag...if yo do say a driver number pelase give me a link also [url]
I did this because I want to play Blu-Ray films AND have a decent selection of 16:9 resolutions - The Nvidia ones (with the modded inf) cause Acer Arcade not to play (gives an error about incorrect driver installed) and the official Acer ones only give you 2 actual 16:9 resolutions. Bear in mind this is mainly for my gaming as not everything will run at 1920x1080 but I don't want to go as low as 1366x768 but it's fixed a wierd problem with my TV where the HDMI 720p output was bigger than the TV screen (which is 720p but doesnt have any over/underscan ability?).
****This should be regarded as a "hack" to the drivers and as such I take no responsibilty for anything that happens if you try this - I am providing the details in case others have the problems above........
I have the following specs and hoping that someone with similar specs can run a small test and report back on their results.
Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo Processor P9500 (2.53GHz/ 1066 FSB/ 6MB Cache) 256MB NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) 9500M-GE 4GB Dual Channel 1067MHz DDR3 SDRAM 500GB SATA Hard Drive Windows Vista(R) Ultimate 32 bit SP1 BIOS version: A03 (updated through the Dell support site)
The problem I have tends to arise when I put the laptop into Vista's sleep mode. It hangs after it sits in sleep more for about 30 minutes. Basically, the XPS media control touch buttons do their little dance show, then the laptop hangs and doesn't respond. I have to do a reset with the power button.
I have been testing where the problem is: Yesterday, I rolled back the video card to the 'GeForce 9400M G' driver. The sleep mode issue went away. I then reinstalled the 'GeForce 9500M (9400 + 9200)' driver and the issue came back.
Hoping that someone who has similar specs to mine, can run a test by putting their computer into "Sleep Mode" (keeping hybrid sleep OFF) and then:
1. Wake it up immediately (this has been working for me); and 2. Wake it up after 30-40 minutes.
I use the SZ as secondary computer, mostly with Intel card so realised only today that I have wrong Nvidia driver/software and am not able to install correct one. It is Asian SZ , XP Pro English but for whatever reason the Nvidia Settings are in German and does not look like I can change it. Downloaded the original driver fro Sony Asia site- for the SZ38GP, tried installing it twice already but I am getting the same German thing, could be Swahili or Mandarin as well though understand German but not of that tachnical kind, plus it cant be right if OS is English
Tried also a newest Nvidia driver, that worked in English but the brightness buttons didnt and I find those essential.
The new driver 195.62 gives me BSODing upon just logging in to my machine.
After first reboot upon installing the driver, it worked fine for a few minutes and then BSOD'd while watching a flash video. It then BSODs whenever I try to log back in to the machine. I've since uninstalled the driver through safe mode.
I have a HP HDX 16, Nvidia 130m, 2.1ghz C2D, Windows 7 64bit.
I did a clean install of the driver (ie. uninstalling through control panel, going into safe mode and using driver sweeper, then installing again through normal mode).
In order to gain CUDA support for my nvidia 8400m gs video card, I downloaded the latest notebook driver from Nvidia website directly and installed it on my HP 2500t custom order laptop recently, so far, I have experienced frequent system hang, sudden blue screen of death, lost of display and system overheating. I am considering reverting back to HP stock video which is a bit old and has no support for CUDA.
Has anybody else tried the new nvidia video driver for notebook?
i have HP DV 2700 with nvidia 8400m gs. the laptop has 2 graphics chips intel gm965 chipset with gma3100 and 8400m gs. is it possible to switch between the two. i am having problems with drivers. i am not able to install latest drivers from nvidia site. it doesnt show on rivatuner saying nvidia driver not detected. the driver from hp works but its very old 176.xx. so is there a way out to install new driver and switch between graphics. i searched intel site but did nt find any thing related to this problem.The bios doesnt have any option like the desktop pc s have. Does bios tweaking...
Earlier i changed my window vista home premium to window 7, but then i changed it to window vista ultimate.
when i had window 7, my graphics card which is nvidia work perfectly fine, but after i change to window vista ultimate, i " lost " my nvidia driver. i downloaded nvidia driver at ww.nvidia.com but when i tried to install it, i get an error " The NVIDIA setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hrdware. Setup will now exit."
I really want to install that driver, i have nvidia graphic card but i cant install the driver
i have managed to install Windows7 in my 3years old Vaio VGN-FE31M laptop. so i just need the nvidia graphics card driver now. i have tried the latest one from nvidia website, but its not compatible. my nvidia is Nvidia Geforcego 7600.
I downloaded the newest driver for the nvidia 8600..Which is like a year old now..Sometimes I would get the old blue screen crash and dump when viewing certain dvds..So I checked nvidia's website and got this driver and now I can't even watch dvds in the windows media player 11..I like to use it and other players work like the built in Quickplay..
I thought it was the codec but I am not sure what to do..I have tried a couple things installing codec packages and what nOT..Downloaded the new Divx 7 package and it gave me back avi and some files will now play..But some are s till a green blank...Also the dvd playback won't even do that or play sound..It kinda starts and everything freezes and its just black..The WMP locks up and becomes un responsive...Have shut it down and start over..I was thinking of going back to the old nvidia driver that I had but now sure how to do this..
should I download it from windows update site? I dont know the difference between two drivers from HP site and windows update. from hp site there is no such new driver for nvidia and I tried the driver from the windows update it caused forever load after vista login so i uninstalled and went back to old HP's own old nvidia driver so it speeds up.
