I have just downloaded the right driver for my graphic card from nvidia website. When I tried to install, this message appear:
"The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit"
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
The properties of my Laptop:
Laptop model: Sony VAIO VGN-FZ17G
OS: Windows 7 x64 Home Premium
Display card: GeForce 8400M GT GPU
When I check the Device manger, it still recognize [Standard VGA Graphics Adapter].
Laptop is a Sony Vaio vgn nr38s
I can't find a suitable driver for Windows 7.
I tried to install this file: 186.03_notebook_win7_32bit_international_whql.exe, downloaded from your site, but the installation fails (no driver found for current hardware).
I am having difficulty in updating the graphics card which is a Nvidia Geforce 8400M GT. I downloaded a desktop 8400 driver from Nvidia site(UK) for me.
I then used the mobility modder tool for Nvidia and it modified the inf file. I then ran the Setup.exe from the Nvidia directory.
The problem is that i keep getting a message saying "The System has not been modified" after running the setup.exe
I then tried the notebook 8400M GT driver from Nvidia site(even though its not supported by Sony) That didnt work.
So i then tried using the Mobility modder on the notebook 8400M driver but the same problem occurs.
I am not confident in modifying the inf file outlined in the following:
I have a problem with my graphics card, i can't update it to Nvidia driver, all what i can have is the standard VGA
i tried to download the driver and install it, but once i finished and restart i couldn't log in to the OS, i got blue screen with tall messages (white letters), i can read some error message but can't get it coz it's disappear very fast
i can get in with safe mode, and delete the driver to log in to the OS
or i have to restore the system to a point before the card updating
i have updated the BOIS too, but still have the same problem
i tried this too
NVIDIA Driver - Convert from Desktop to Mobile (Laptop)
and still can't update the driver
I tried looking in nvidia site but the support page says that i have to get it from sony and sony have not yet updated their drivers.
I would like to install 7 64bit but i can't find any that my laptop likes, this is what i'm looking for: Graphics Card Nvidia GeForce 8400M-GT (64 bit)
