Nvidia graphic card doesn't work on T430s with Windows 8


My T430S laptop runs Windows 8 and has a NVIDIA graphic card. Somehow I was never able to enter the NVIDIA control panel and got the error message below. I checked the setting in BIOS and it seems that Nvidia Optimus mode is not available on Windows 8. I updated my driver to the most recent version but it didn't solve the problem. How do I get Nvidia to work?






Besides checking and downloading the latest version of drivers, users are advised to check if their BIOS versions are up-to-date.
