Windows 7: Nvidia driver problems

Nvidia driver problems

I have an Intel (R) HD graphics card which cannot play Theatre of War. So I went to the troubleshooting page and they told me to download a nvidia driver.

The nvidia website's scan said I should download 260.99, but the windows compatibility test said 260.89 was the one. Both are for 64 bit.

The problem is, whenever I try to install a driver, it says it is incompatible with windows 7.

Any solutions please? I've been working this for several days already and it's very frustrating.

These are the ones they say will not work:

Mobile Intel(R) 900, 915, 925, 945GM/GU Express Chipset Family
Nvidia GF440MX and earlier
Nvidia GeForce 5600 and earlier
ATI Radeon 9550 and earlier

As I am not an expert, I have no idea which one to download from here:

Good ,You inserted the service tag it came up that you have an ATI radeon card so down load the "5470" driver first , if that fails move on to the next and so on

Since you have stated that you have Intel graphics, the driver you will require is this one: Drivers and Downloads

You could also try a more recent one from Intel themselves, but be aware that many laptop manufacturers take the stock drivers and customize them for their laptops, so this option may or may not work. Anyhow, if you want to try is the link: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...=3231&lang=eng

Well that didn't work because I can't seem to download the driver from that site. All it will give me is the download manager, which does not work.

I assume that you mean the Dell link. In that case, select the option Download via your Internet Browser.

That is correct. How did you get to that page? I dimly recall seeing it once but I can't seem to find it again.
