Problem with nvidia geforce 9600m gs

Hi,

I have recently installed windows 7 32-bit on my laptop, everything was running fine but then i found out that windows seven didn't recognise my graphics card. I have a nvidia geforce 9600m gs graphics card, and when i try to install drivers for it, well, i cant, it tells me that i cant install drivers onto hardware that doesn't exist. I have been trying to solve this problem for over a 2 days but have had no success what so ever. I would be ever so grateful if someone could help me solve this problem as soon as possible as i am unable to do work for uni as i cant run the progam i need because of this issue.

Chris

I have just tried this, but it doesn't make any difference. Does anyone have any other ideas? Thanks.

Sure it does.

I'll help you with a custom method instead, since you're finding troubles with it.

Right click card in device manager. Properties, details tab. Change dropdown to hardware ids. Copy and paste results to here.

I'll make you custom install strings for your card and place into the .inf.

After you do that, get latest driver from here http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7_wi...1.07_whql.html
Run and let it extract to C:\NVIDIA
Close installer after it extracts.

When I post again, I'll have further instructions.

Download my attachment. Extract the .inf from it. Copy and paste it to directly overwrite C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\191.07\WinVista_Win7\English\NV_DISP.INF

Go to device manager. Right click card, update driver software, browse, let me pick, have disk, browse.

Now go to the folder shown above where you overwrote the original file and click on NV_DISP.INF

Hit ok. Follow along and let it install.

When done, run C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\191.07\WinVista_Win7\English\setup.exe

if you want the Control Panel installed too.

You're welcome and enjoy.

Wow, torrentg. I wish someone was this good at figuring out why video is generally lower quality looking in Windows 7 as compared to XP/Vista for no apparent reason whatsoever (many others with this same, apparently un-answerable problem).

What card? And under which device? System devices?
I have exactly the same video card as our friend Chris Robson here and the same problem. I'm trying your method, but I do not know what you mean by "card"?

If you never had a driver installed previously, it's "standard vga" in display adapters section.

This .inf file and the rest following.. is it the same for me too? Or do I need to copy-paste my hardware ids too?
