Latest Nvidia Driver for G560 does not install!

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

i've tried to install the latest nvidia driver for my G560. But it seems like the only driver working on this system is the preinstalled driver from Lenovo.

 

I always get the message that the driver can't find the required hardware. I've downloaded the correct (Win 7 64 Bit) and latest driver from Nvidias webpage. I've even tried some older drivers from the drivers archive.

 

Does anybody have a clue how I can solve my problem?

 

Greetings Cpk83

The latest driver from Nvidia's site, Does the download say laptop? I used to get that alot with an old HP until I realized I was downloading the desktop driver and not the laptop driver. Just a tip.

I've downloaded this driver for my Nvidia Geforce 310M:  http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook_winvista_win7_x64_197.16_whql.html

 

I think that should be the correct one.

Re: Latest Nvidia Driver for G560 does not install!

It does look like the correct driver. But I noticed this "Note: The following notebooks are not supported in this release: 1. Notebooks supporting Hybrid Power with Intel chipsets. 2. Fujitsu notebooks – support will be added in a later release. Fujitsu Siemens (FSC) notebooks are supported in this release. 3. Sony VAIO notebooks – support will be added in a later release. Sony VAIO Windows 7 users can click here for driver update support. 4. Any notebook that is launched after the release date of this driver. " Does anyone know if this laptop has Hybrid Power? Also here is a good tip/recommended from ATI. "Advisory: The display driver supplied by the laptop manufacturer is customized for the built-in flat panel display, and the graphics features and functions specific to the laptop. It is strongly recommended to use the supplied drivers. If installing a different operating system other than the one included with the laptop, the laptop may not meet all the requirements, and supported drivers may not be available. The laptop manufacturer is the exclusive provider of driver updates. If the required driver update is not available at the laptop manufacturers’ website, it is recommended to contact the manufacturer directly, to see if an updated driver will be made available in the future."

On the other hand the Drivers I saw from Lenovo were from Feb. Which are not that old. You could always email Lenovo like ATI recommended. http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_show_2508.html Use this if you want to make sure you have the latest DirectX. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&displa... and http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=0CEF8180-E94A-4F56-B157-5AB8109CB4F5&displa...

To repeat the warning:

DO NOT UPGRADE YOUR G560 BIOS TO VERSION 25 !!!  IT MAY CRASH YOUR LAPTOP !!!


WARNUNG!!! VERWENDEN SIE FÜR IHREN G560 NICHT DAS BIOS UPGRADE NR. 25!!! ES WURDEN SCHON MEHRERE GERÄTE DAMIT BESCHÄDIGT!!!  Vermutlich ist die Datei beschädigt/falsch!


N'UTILISEZ PAS LA MISE À JOUR POUR LA VERSION 25 DE LENOVO G560!!! L'APPLICATION EST DÉFECTUEUSE!!!

Hi reavidraee24!

 

What warning are you referring to? Please provide a link.

 

Or if this is just a problem with your G560 BIOS upgrade (others appear to have succeeded)? Please post more detail so the members can help you. What happened during the upgrade? What happens when your laptop crashes?

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
