Z500 nvidia driver dosn't install in windows 8 64-bits

Hi
I couldn't install the driver to use my nvidia geforce card and it dosn't appear in my device manager.
The installer says that it can't find the compatible device.

Can you provide specifics about your unit? For example Z500 non-touch or touch, I5xxx or I7xxx, etc.

Re: Z500 nvidia driver dosn't install in windows 8 64-bits

I've got the same problem.

My z500 is a non-touch, i7-3632QM @2.20GHz, 8 GB RAM and my graphic card should be a GeForce 645M 2GB (or so I suppose since I can't see it in the device manager anymore). 

 

EDIT: I already tried the driver link posted in this topic, no results.

Check the bios under graphics device if it is set as "switchable graphics".

BTW why are you re-installing the driver in the first place? What happen?

I wasn't re-installing the driver. I tried it when I found out that my PC couldn't detect the Nvidia graphic card anymore.

Try shutting down the unit. Press the NOVO button next to the power plug. Select system Recovery when presented with the option menu. Select restore to initial backup. Try to make a backup of your personal files before doing it.

 

After the restore check device manger if you have the NVidia driver together with the Intel HD driver.
