Hello,
i just re installed windows 7 and didnt have the disc so had to download all the drivers from another computer. now my graphics card wont install.. it came with a nvidia geforce 410m i downloaded the driver and it said its not compatible. went onto the website and the website runs a test on your computer and finds you an apropriate program to install your card but test came up that i have no graphics card.. so where to from here?

Try again but get the drivers from here: http://www.geforce.com/drivers

And do it on the laptop that you are trying to install drivers for, if you don't it will detect the other pcs video card and give you that driver.

Did you install the intel driver first? Also, try downloading the driver from your laptop manufacturer website.

Nvidia doesn't usually provide the drivers for OEM laptop/mobile chips... You will have to go to the manufacturer's support website.... i.e HP, Sony, Asus etc.
