hello, i have upgraded my old laptop from xp to windows 8. i am trying to install the latest display driver nvidia. but it does not let me no matter what i do. this is the error message i get. "the driver selected for the device does bot support the version of windows"
the steps i took
1. uninstalled the microsoft display driver then trying to install the latest, but setup and going to device manager. no luck
2.uninstalled microsoft basic display driver, then went to the driver folder in c: drive changed microsoft basic display driver extenstion to .bak then installing driver from device manger with no luck.
i used the old windows xp driver from the mobo manufacturer no luck still. i even tried modder .net and still no luck. does any one have a solution to my problem?
That won't work. His GPU isn't supported by those drivers.
@OP: I've looked deeper into it and I think your GPU is not supported in windows 8. If you want to use them, you'll have to stick with the generic driver.
Indeed those drivers dont support that gpu I just noticed that aswell.
Here are the latest drivers (vista) that I can find that MIGHT work: http://www.mediafire.com/?t0mrw1c3nig Its a small chance that it will work but you can give it a try, good luck.
