Welcome to Seven Forums. You may want to try and use the Nvidia mobile moder to modify your .inf file, it has shown some success in the past, Just follow the instructions they are fairly straight forward, and your card is listed. NVIDIA MobilityModder Hope this will help. Fabe

Hi WalterKe, in device manager does it list only the Intel 945 chip? or is the nvidia listed also? have you tried right clicking on the device and "update driver" try this also Drivers - Turn Off Automatic Driver Installation

Does the SZ5 have a switch on the top between stamina/speed?
On my SZ4 on stamina it only sees the Intel chip. I need to change to speed and reboot to see the NVidia one (which I can't get to work which is why I found this thread in the first place).
