My lenovo N500 gets ONLY 1 point on the 'Vista Experience Index Rating'?!

2008-12-14, 12:07 PM
Processor 4,9 points
Memory Ram 4,5 ..
Graphics 1,0 ..
Hard Drive 5,3 ..

What's wrong with my Graphics? Or do all the lenovo 3000 N500 gets the minimum score?

Well I have Graphics chipset: NVIDIA GeForce 9300M

 

Graphics Subsystem
Video RAM std/max:
Graphics chipset: Gráfica Mobile Intel GMA 4500MHD (GM45) hasta 384MB compartido

 

so only a 1 score means something is wrong?

I think you are right: Driver(s) missing.

 

I installed all the drivers available for Vista from the Lenovo site

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/quickPath.do?quickPathEntry=423338G

 

And I can see there is an Nvidia Driver, but it says its ONLY for windows XP?!

Is that right? And if so, where on the net can I get drivers for NVIDIA GeForce 9300M?

 

And do I need also a driver for the Graphics Mobile Intel GMA 4500MHD (GM45)?

SAXI, if you have an Intel video card, you don't have a Nvidia video card.... 

Install ONLY drivers for components that you have!!!!!

@ saxi

 

enter your Type and Model number on this site to find out which graphics you have, you should then be able to select downloads and drivers to find the correct driver.

 

Hope this helps

Andy

Thanks, but at the Lenovo-website I already looked, and it didn't help me.

I have a Lenovo 3000 N500 4233-38G, and when I introduce that info, it shows me only an Nvidia driver for the windows XP version. But I have Vista. Can I download and install that same driver?

 

(If so, why doesn't it say that it's for xp AND vista?)

Have you tried this driver. It should be the right one.

Thanks Andy,

I already had installed that Intel driver, and re-installed it OK, but it doesn't change the Vista Index scrore.

There I only see that 'a new device is installed, please update' but updating doesn't change anything.

Still I get only one point. There must be something wrong then, with the Vista Index itself? Can I fix that?
