Help Installing Nvidia Geforce 8400M GS

This is my first post so please bear with me.
I have a Dell XPS M1530 running windows 7 build 7100 32 bit. I am having problems with installing the correct driver with my Nvidia Geforce 8400M GS graphics card. I can currently only use the standard VGA graphics adapter or else my computer will not even start-up properly, Freezes at starting windows screen. I have tried installing the forceware drivers and have also visited NVISION.
I would just like to know if there is any specific driver that i need based on my computer type.

Thank you

uninstall your current video driver... reboot into safe mode... install the new driver.

Have the same XPS M1530 and GeForce 8600M GT setup as you.
I installed Win 7 64bit. Driver from NVidia did not work...
I went back to Dell and downloaded the NVidia driver for Vista 64 bit for my service tag. Works great now.

I recommend usually trying the drivers listed from the manufacturer website.

Try the Vista 64-bit driver from dell.com

windows 7 ultimate 64 bit
 
 

This is my first post. I have successfully done a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on an HP Pavilion dv6800. Everything is working, but the monitor and video graphics are listed as generic. I have a Nividia GeForce 8400M GS card and am not sure about the laptop monitor. Nvidia said that 195.62 notebook was the proper software for this card. From google posts regarding the 8400M GS and Windows 7, I am concerned about installing it without further advice. I cannot find the post where someone was asking about PNP ID info and modifying something. Can someone help?
