Windows 7: Need detailed help about Nvidia GeForce 310M

Windows 7 Ultimate x86
Need detailed help about Nvidia GeForce 310M


I'm new in sevenforums. So hello again to everyone!

Let's get into the subject...

I know that there are other topics about GeForce 310M and read all of them (I think all) but although my problem seems to be the same as others, none of the solutions worked for me, except changing DEV ID thing. I don't know how to do it. Let me remind my problem.

I have formatted my laptop and installed Windows 7 Ultimate x86. Everything looks fine but the GPU. I have installed all drivers (LAN, chipset, GPU etc.) but still can't use the graphics card on desktop or anywhere else. I tried to disable the Standart VGA graphics accelerator but still can't watch videos fullscreen or adjust screen resolution beyond 1024x768. By the way there isn't any second monitors shown on screen resolution adjustment window. On device manager screen, there are three basic system drivers that have yellow mark, however when it tries to find the drivers online, it fails to find anything. I tried to install OS and everything from the beginning lots of times. It was working properly before I formatted my PC for the first time.

I thought about the possibility of damaged OS disc but installed the same OS to my desktop PC and it still works without any problems. So it can't be the Windows 7 DVD. I don't know what causes this.

As I said above, I haven't tried to change DEV ID in an *.ini file, because don't know how to do it. Maybe this is the right solution.

So any help would be very nice.

korli, welcome to the Seven Forums.

If you haven't yet I would start with the "Intel INF Update Driver" from here,

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Notebooks - ASUS K52JC

then install both the Intel and Nvidia video drivers, installing the Intel one first. I have a feeling that your laptop having the Intel graphics integrated into the CPU,

Intel® Core

that it uses switchable graphics (uses the Intel for low power and/or normal use, and uses the Nvidia for gaming, etc), and requires both to be installed for either to work properly.

I didn't know that the processor uses a switchable graphics. Installing Intel VGA driver solved all the problem. Again the most complex problem to my mind solved in a very simple way. Thanks for help, really appreciate it!
