nvidia gt130m win7 64bit 285.38, 285.62 not working

Hello,

 

I have a lenovo y450 laptop with Nvidia GT240M LE graphics card. Currently, when I play the most recent games it comes up a warning saying I have an old driver and recommended to update the drivers to the latest version.

 

Some games would allow me to continue with the old driver but some will not start.

 

 

Heading over to Nvidia's Site It says

GeForce GT 240M LE

Has been detected in your system.

Compal requires that you download the driver for your GPU from their support site.

Checking the Drivers page from lenovo, I coudnt find anything newer than

 

NVIDIA Display Driver8.15.11.86362009-10-2196.6 MB

Windows 7 64bit

 

Which is the latest im using, and the drivers are 3 years old. Have lenovo stopped support?

 

 

Anyone knows where I can download the latest drivers for GeForce GT 240M LE

Okay now my version of nvidia geforce is 268.44 and Im trying to play NFS: the run which requires 285.38

http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook-win7-winvista-64bit-285.38-beta-driver.html

 on the nvidia site.

 

Hardware ID: PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0652&SUBSYS_387A17AA&REV_A1


 

On the supported products I see the

GeForce 100M series:
G 110M, GT 130M, GTS 160M, G 105M, G 103M, G 102M, GT 120M

                ^^^^^^^^^

 

So I should be able to use this driver update?

 

And It came back with an install error

This Graphics driver could not find compatible hardware.

 

Err. Doesnt the model states that the model is supported?

 

Help thanks!

Ok after install, it booted and after a while it crashed saying it failed to restart the graphics card and blue screened

 

Reboot again and still blue screened.

 

 

Restored the older graphics driver in safe mode for now.

 

No solution yet

 

 

 

 

As for the auto update:

 

ProductCurrent

Latest Driver
Update
NVIDIA GeForce GT 130M268.44The manufacturer of this system requires that you download the driver for your GPU from their support site.

The GeForce M series and GeForce Go series notebook GPUs use drivers that have been customized by the notebook manufacturers to support hot key functions, power management functions, lid close and suspend/resume behavior. NVIDIA has worked with some notebook manufacturers to provide notebook-specific driver updates, however, most notebook driver updates must come from the notebook manufacturer. Additionally, the desktop GeForce graphics drivers will not install on Geforce M series and Quadro M series notebook GPU's.
