Lenovo G460 GeForce 310M Driver Update Problem
Hey, I recently bought a Lenovo G460, which has an Nvidia GeForce 310M graphics card in it. The drivers that came with the Laptop are old, version 188.36. I downloaded the latest drivers from Nvidia for Windows 7 64-bit, and I made sure I selected notebook edition. But when I go to install the drivers I get this message, "The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit." I've tried uninstalling my old drivers, and I've tried re-downloading them, nothing seems to work. Anybody have any ideas on what might be going wrong?

Here's a GPU-Z screenshot:

I faced the same program and Lenovo seems don't want to update the driver themselves. I have some programs cannot work properly and don't know how to fix the problem.

You need to copy and paste the top line of your Hardware ID found in the "Details" tab of your GeForce GT 310M (see snapshot below for an example from the GT 320M). Go into Windows Control Panel's Device Manager, and right-click over the GT 310M entry under "Display Adapters".

Make sure that ManuelG (Nvidia tech here) knows about this--he'll need to add it to the installation drivers for the next release.

Yeah, I did get it working. I had a friend, who knows quite a bit about nvidia stuff, add the hardware ID to some nvidia .INI file. I can't remember exactly what he did, or what file he modified, though, sorry.

This problem eats my head. I posses a Acer 5745g with a Nvidia 310m optimus. The drivers provided by acer are older than like 1 million years! So, i tried to install it, no success. I tried every other methods too. So, I hope an administrator of Nvidia sees our crying need, and provide a suitable driver for us.

To All acer users, i managed to update my optimus graphics card. Just go to bios (in case, you go there by pressing f2 while you turn on your laptop). Search for graphics. It should be listed as switchable. Just change it to discrete. Then you'll be able to install the driver without any modded inf or anything else. Happy to help. And dont worry if you turn graphics discrete and your resolution is not correct yada yada. Just update.
