I've got an Alienware M14x running 64 bit windows 7 with a Nvidia GT555M graphics card. I've only had it a couple of months and it's still under warranty. I've never really been into PC gaming before so I can't say I know what I'm doing but I have been trying to keep it up to date and look after it.
Basically I've had problems running Portal 2, Deus Ex HR and Witcher 2, which I think I should be able to run. I read on a few sites that the problem might be as simple as needing to update my video driver. I just went to the Nvidia site and found what I'm pretty sure is the latest official driver for my card, this one: http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/notebook-win7-winvista-6...
I downloaded that and ran the installer. The first thing the installer does is runs a system check and gives me the error message
'NVIDIA installer cannot continue.
This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware'
I ran the installer a few more times and I get the same problem.
How worried about this should I be? Does it mean there's something wrong with my graphics card or am I overreacting?
Oh and this might be completely irrelevant but lately I've noticed the screen cuts out whenever I switch from battery power to the mains or vice versa. That's not really a problem but until lately it didn't do that so again it's a little worrying.
If anyone can help me out I'd appreciate it, thanks
