T540 Optimus Driver Install failed

2014-08-29, 1:31 AM

I am having flickering problem when connected to 2 external monitor using display port cable on my docking station.

During troubleshooting I've decided to update the driver and now I am not able to re-install the Nvidia optimus driver.

I've downloaded the latest version from the web, but for some reason it always error out during install.

Device manager shows the device as standard vga adapter with yellow exclamation mark on it.

Manually installing the driver would fail with error 28.

The weird thing is, my monitor stop flickering in this condition, and I am actually tempted to stop and just ignore the driver issue. However, I am still very curious why my driver install keep failing.


Optimus Driver version I am trying to install is


Any help is greatly appreciated.
