The latest nvidia drivers, which are technically compatible, will not install on older cards because Nvidia removed them from .inf files. You can try going to laptopvideo2go.com
, they have modified .inf files that regains support for those older cards. Also, what are your GPU temps? Have you tried an external monitor?
Unfortunately, I don't feel comfortable downloading drivers from websites which are not from the manufacturer. Speaking of which, I just noticed that my computer does not have an anti-virus program installed like the person who sold it to me claimed it had. Gotta download that...
Why would NVIDIA get rid of the drivers that are compatible with their computers and replace them with ones that are not?
All of my computer temperatures are normal. I have not tried an external monitor, but exactly what would I be looking for? Obviously, I don't want to have to use an external monitor all the time
