Hello. I'm doing a fresh installation of XP on my T61p. Everything's gone smoothly (relatively), but I've hit a rocky patch while getting my video card installed (NVidia Quadro FX 570m). I have the driver prepped and ready to go, but for some reason my laptop isn't recognising the card itself.
In the System device manager, instead of seeing the expected "Nvidia Quadro FX 570m" under display adapters I've got "Video Controller (VGA Compatible)".
I'm not sure how to remedy this and get my system working. As is, I can barely even scroll around in Firefox...
Any input is appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.

It's not recognizing the card because the 570M is newer than Windows XP. Just proceed with the driver install.
Download that and:

Absurd. Spend all evening uninstalling and reinstalling the driver only to wake up to an install, reboot and perfect functionality.
