Windows 7: Is this the graphics driver I need?

Is this the graphics driver I need?

Hi. I just installed Windows 7 to my Apple iMac (latest generation from Apple) on a Boot Camp partition. The solve PC issues window says I need to update my driver and includes a direct download but I prefer to get the update directly from the source. I think that the GeForce/ION Driver Release 190 is the graphics driver I need.

NVIDIA DRIVERS 190.62 WHQL



When I run the driver test on the nvidia website it says I need the Notebook Release 186 but the 9400 is not listed under supported devices. Again, I'm 99% sure that I need the GeForce/ION Driver Release 190 but I don't want to screw anything up.

Yes you need the 190.62 you posted.

Nvidia cannot 100% identify a gpu on a Mac because there is a diff between Mac and a PC.

I get an error when I try to install that. I made sure that I was downloading the 64 bit version and not the 32 bit (which I originally downloaded) and the driver wouldn't install. Personally I'm fine with what I have now, there's nothing wrong with it so I'll just leave it

Okay then try the notebook version, if its not working then update the driver trough the Windows Update.
