Use this attachment instead. You had two line entries in each section for 0427, confusing the heck out of the installer lol.

Use this with that latest 32 bit from the NVIDIA site.

Good luck.

Didn't realize that. Thanks. But unfortunately that .inf did not solve my problem. On restart at the windows logo the screen still gets all distorted.

You probably used it with the wrong driver version or something. I dunno.

I am still confused about the 64 bit process. Do I download the desktop driver for window764bit/vista 64 bit and use the exact same process as before? And how do I disable driver enforcement?

If Windows is x64, always use x64 drivers...correct.

To disable enforcement...I did say please not to ask, if you read it right in the opening of my first post.

But you can find the info in my post at the bottom of the first page.

Sorry about that. I didnt see it the first time. One last question for you since I am having trouble modifying my own file. I saw that you sent some people a .rar file to use in place of their .inf file. How do i open/convert/use this file. the one you modified for them was an 8400M GS file which is my graphics card so i was hoping to use that

Delete C:\ATI and everything in it. Extract the driver again to same location again, after.

Find the .infs (*.inf to search, upper right Windows Explorer when in C:\ATI) and compress to a .rar file with Winrar. Attach the .rar to a post using the paperclip.

Also, copy and paste the result when you go to the device manager and find your hardware id strings. Not pictures of this, please.

Extract from my attachment. Copy and paste the .inf from it over the one you have in the C:\ATI folder. Make sure it asks you if you want to "copy and replace." Click on that choice when copying over.

Then continue to install in the device manager as shown in the original post of this thread.

Enjoy and let us know how it goes for you.

Again thank you so much for doing that. But I am still having problems. After browsing and opening the .inf file it gives me a list of drivers. But the 8400M GS is not listed. There are 4 8400 GS drivers and one 8400 but none of them work. So i went into the file that you modified and saw that you did infact change one of them to 8400M so i am confused why it is not showing up. Sorry to be such a pain.
