Hey Stormy

I tried a few drivers yes. Two drivers had the same message.
But enlighten me about your thought. What is the situation if it is an MSI?

Hey Stormy

I've tried a couple of drivers from Lv2go, they all had the same message.

What if it was from MSI? Then what?

No, but there could be something in the DveID from MSI that is stopping the Nvidia driver and any from LaptopVideo2go to install. These,

Code:
%NVIDIA_G96.DEV_0649.4%  = nv_G8x_HD, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0649&SUBSYS_43271462
%NVIDIA_G96.DEV_0649.5%  = nv_G8x_HD, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0649&SUBSYS_43271462
%NVIDIA_G96.DEV_0649.6%  = nv_G8x_HD, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0649&SUBSYS_65201462
%NVIDIA_G96.DEV_0649.7%  = nv_G8x_HD,     PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0649&SUBSYS_72201462
%NVIDIA_G96.DEV_0649.8%  = nv_G8x_HD,     PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0649&SUBSYS_65101462
%NVIDIA_G96.DEV_0649.9%  = nv_G8x_HD, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0649&SUBSYS_43501462
are the DevID's for all 9600M GT's from the last MSI Vista driver (only one they have available). Maybe try adding all 5 lines to the INF you have and see if it will then install.

Just add the five from above to the bottom of the list in the INF you have.

"the NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware."

That has kept telling me the past six days now.

EDIT: The time difference, I'm 7 hours ahead. Hope to have some answers tomorrow

Hi again

Please excuse my absence. Needed some days of from this problem.

I think I finally managed to install a driver from laptopvideo2go.com, driver v: v. 259.47

The device manager finally recognizes my card, though driver detail says v: 8.17.12 5947

When I try to reboot, it freezes at the windows logo prior to log in.

The windows repair option just freezes during the procedure.

At the moment I'm going to try to install the latest driver from nvidia and see if that works.
And somewhere I read, that the startup problem could be because of the CMOS battery might be out, but I have no idea whether that's the problem or not.

To anybody who has the same problem as me; download the drivers from laptopvideo2go.com WITH the modded INF-file (that was my mistake).

Does this freeze occur with the Standard VGA driver? If not I'd find a better driver. Try Nvidia.

If freeze is not necessarily traceable to the card, then test your RAM - Test with Memtest86+
and run HD maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan.

Then work through these other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

Thanks for the suggestions gregrocker

The memtest went fine, no errors. Couldn't get the HD Diagnostics to work.

I've reinstalled windows, and tried to install the video driver as the first thing. That wasn't possible.

I then used a program called drivermax, and downloaded the newest Standard VGA Graphics Adapter driver v. 8.17.13.142. Now it recognizes my card.

Next I installed the driver from laptopvideo2go.com with the modded file, then the newest driver, the v. 301.42 WHQL driver, from blog.komeil.com/2010/04/nvidia-driver-windows-7-notebook-laptop.html

It installed the driver!! And asked me if I wanted to restart. So I did, and still it freezes on startup!

It's a fresh OS installation. The memtest still doesn't show any errors. The video drivers are now installed, but it still won't work! O.O

Any ideas??
