T410 - need latest Nvidia driver

 

The latest nvidia driver which Lenovo lets me install for my T410 with NVidia NVS 3100M, Win7 64 bit, from their support site is 8.17.12.5738. However, when I use my integrated webcam for video chat using a few solutions, including Yahoo messenger video chat, the video flickers to the point that it is not usable. The flicker is between a scaled down version of the picture, and a zoomed in portion of the image, with the edges truncated.

 

From a colleague on a different model Thinkpad, he confirmed the latest NVidia drivers resolve this. However, Lenovo doesn't have this driver available yet, and if I try to install it directly from NVidia, the installer tells me it can't find a compatible device when I try to run it.

 

Latest NVidia driver for the 3100M: http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook-win7-winvista-64bit-260.99-whql-driver.html

 

Any suggestions on how to get this applied to my machine?

Hi,

 

This is unofficial source for working laptop nvidia drivers http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/

You can get latest Nvidia drivers there that work on T410

Re: T410 - need latest Nvidia driver

Thanks for the link, unfortunately that seems to tell me that it's not compatible either when I attempt the install. Very confusing since I am attempting to install the 260.99 NVidia drivers, which claim support for my T410's MVS 3100M. I'm stuck

Re: T410 - need latest Nvidia driver

If you have an Optimus switchable model, then it may not be able to use NVidia's stock drivers; Lenovo's implementation seems to be slightly different from most Optimus implementations, and thus may render stock drivers incompatible.
