Hello,

I am on a dell XPS 15 L502X model with the nvidia gt 525m graphics card. I bought the computer over a year ago.

I have been trying to install the new nvidia drivers (version 301.43 drivers) and every time I do I get a "Driver Failed to Install" warning.

I am currently running 265.94.

Can anyone help me?

More about : nvidia drivers install

There's no guarantee standard drivers are going to work with any laptop components.

Laptop graphics card implementations can be proprietary and are, in most cases, non-standard. You should get the latest drivers for your laptop from Dell. If the Dell provided drivers won't install, you should contact Dell support.

I can't even find them from dell. And the drivers they do have are over a year old (for hd 3000)

Looks like Dell released their own update to the video driver on 2012/3/12:

You have to go with the 'Choose from a list->laptops->XPS->XPS 15 (L502X)'. Under Operating System, choose 'Windows 7' drivers and expand the video driver section.

I'm sorry, I don't see any video driver section.

There is nothing with that date either

Thanks, I thought that windows 7 section was OS related.

Downloading it now.

I never realized that I would have to get the stupid drivers from dell. And that they are always going to be out of date.

I know. They make it a little confusing.
