Windows 7: Hardware not detected.

Windows 7

On a related note, when I go to the Device Manager - > Standard VGA Graphics Adapter -> Properties - > Update Driver - > Browse - > Let Me Pick - > It now has 5 NVIDIA GeForce 260M GTX's listed under the show compatible hardware box alongside the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter - dunno if that makes a difference or not

Clear machine of all previous extracted folders.

Extract the setup from the link you gave me.

Copy and paste my attachment (extract from .rar first, can't attach .inf here) directly over existing .inf.

Now try to force install as previously directed.

You're welcome.

In the future, you may add these lines in appropriate sections for any driver version.

This section >>> [NVIDIA.Mfg.NTamd64.6.0]

%NVIDIA_G98.DEV_0618.1% = nv_G9x_HD, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0618&SUBSYS_028E1025

This section >>> ; Localizable Strings

NVIDIA_G98.DEV_0618.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 260M GTX"

(Hint: Try on latest from NVidia's site )

That's not so swift of them.

You can run the setup.exe or similar (I dunno I deleted already) to get the control panel installed after force method.

torrentg (or anyone else who knows whats going on), i've seen where you fixed a bunch of people's problems with NVIDIA drivers not being signed or the GPU not being recognized, and was wondering if the fix you posted was graphic card specific. I'm running a GeForce 9800m GS 512mb on my Asus G50VT, and its all sorts of messed up. I've tried all sorts of fixes found on other sites and nothin has worked. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated
