Graphics Driver for T530 NVIDIA

2013-05-28, 7:20 AM

I recently installed XP on my T530 machine. I am not able to connect the device to the projector as because the NVIDIA driver is not getting installed.

 

I tried installing the driver available in the official website. Please help.

 

While installing  I am getting this error message "This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware."

 

 

Solved! See the solution

Thanks for the reply.

 

Well, still the process to migrate to Windows 8 is ongoing.

 

But any solutions will be welcome.

The king is dead, long live the king. Anywho, as far as I can tell everything is working fine on my T530 with Windows XP 32-bit installed. Truth be told, I don't have neither a fingerprint reader nor Bluetooth and/or WWAN, but apart from that everything seems to be working just fine.

 

@whity

 Which driver did you try installing? From Lenovo Driver Matrix website? File in particular is: g5da12ww.exe aka "NVIDIA Display Driver XP 6.14.12.9580/1.3.12.0". It should be working. At least it's working here without any problems whatsoever. Also, I presume you are aware of the fact that NVIDIA Optimus is currently not supported on systems running Windows XP, so you must choose (in BIOS - press ENTER when you turn on your computer and then press F1 to enter BIOS) whether you want Intel graphics or NVIDIA.

Did you check your BIOS and make sure NVIDIA Optimus is turned off and that you've selected "Discreet graphics only" option?

@sxtatic: Yes it finally worked. Did the change in BIOS then installed the NVIDIA driver. Then only it detected the hardware. It before had shown me Intel Graphics and now it showed me only NVIDIA.

 

Note:- This incident was noticed only when I wanted to connect a projector to the laptop and it was not working.

 

Thank you so much.
