NVIDIA driver installation issue

I have posted this on GeForce forums, but thought I would post here as well.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have just bought a new Toshiba x70
http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/products/computers/qosmio/x70/psplta-014001

It features a 3GB NVIDIA 770M

I cannot get the drivers to update/install.
I have spent 2 whole days trying with every solution I can think of.

Windows 8x64

UAC is off.
Admin user.


1. Auto detecting graphics card on NVIDIA website does not work.
2. Downloading and running 320.49 results in:
"NVIDIA installer cannot continue, the graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware"

3. Editing nvtd.inf and ListDevices.txt to include:

nvtd.inf:
DEV_11E0&SUBSYS_FA771179 "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770M"

[NVIDIA_SetA_Devices.NTamd64.6.2]
%NVIDIA_DEV.11E0.FA77.1179% = Section081, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11E0&SUBSYS_FA771179

[Strings]
DiskID1 = "NVIDIA Windows Vista / 7 / 8 (64 bit) Driver Library Installation Disk 1"
NVIDIA = "NVIDIA"
NVIDIA_A = "NVIDIA"
NVIDIA_DEV.11E0.FA77.1179 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770M"

in the correct places results in the installation running to about 10%, then the driver fails to install.

4. editing nvcvn.inf in a similar way results in the same error as #3.

I am at my wit's end, please help.

    You might get the drivers that will install here : http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/support/computers/qosmio/x70/psplta-014001/download Some OEM company's want everything thru them. I tried to enter your stuff but I did not know all of your info.
  2. The problem is there are no downloads available at all from Toshiba. I will try posting on their forums too.
