NVS 135m modify driver to use it as Geforce 8400M GS

A while ago(Nvidia driver version number was still below 150) I could modify the inf to let the installer installer think my card is Geforce 8400M GS/G but in 2xx driver apparently Nvidia changed the way how the installer recognizes graphic card. I simply replaced some hardward IDs but it doesn't work, either installer says no compatible card found or it still installs as NVS 135m.
With the current Nvidia driver, how can I trick the installer to turn a NVS card into Geforce?

AFAIK NVS 135m and Geforce 8400M G uses exactly the same processor.

Just out of curiosity what do you gain by doing that?

I think Geforce driver is more optimized for games/video playback. I don't really do professional video editing/modeling

OK m8400GS does not exactly qualify as a gaming card, so I do not believe it makes much of a difference.
Here they are pretty much side by side with majority of games unplayable and the few they can at 800 x 600!

Thanks I know 8400M GS is still pretty weak for gaming... but maybe still better than a "professional card"(not exactly) NVS 135M... I have been playing most games up till 2010 on NVS 135M.... Lol sometimes 10fps is good enough for me
