I have an HP DV8T entertainment laptop with an Nvidia GeForce GT 230M. The current driver
is version 267.67. The latest from Nvidia is 280.26.
When I install 280.26, everything appears to go great...until I re-boot. I get the boot screen with the windows logo and the swirly dots. After that, nothing. Just a black screen with the cooling fans screaming.
I tried to uninstall
the current 267.67 driver and then install the 280.26 version but I get a pop-up that says "No compatible device found." I also tried to "Uninstall current driver" from the custom install menu on the Nvidia installer. Again, everything appeared to go well until re-boot. Logo, swirly dots...black screen.
Thank goodness for the ability to create system restore points or I could possibly be re-installing Windows.
Any insight as to why I am unable to successfully update this driver?
