260.99 error - cannot find compatible graphics hardware
  1 / 2    
I have a ASUS G73JW-A1 with Nvidia GTX 460M. This system supports external 3d (meaning the notebook panel can't display 3D content but the system can display it on a HDMI panel). I have been using Driver CD v1.36 beta successfully since it's release. I downloaded and tried to install CD v1.37 and received the error: "The graphic driver cannot find compatible graphics hardware". In addition to uninstalling/removing the old drivers I used Driver Sweeper and ensured there were no left over files. I then tried the driver only file - 260.99_notebook_winvista_win7_32bit_international_whql and received the same error.

I have reinstalled the "beta" driver until i can find out what the problem might be.

Specs:
Intel Core i7-740QM (1.73GHz Quad-Core with Turbo Boost up to 2.93GHz)
8GB DDR3 1333MHz

Maybes these drivers aren't compatible with ALL Mobile platforms afterall... you do need to realize drivers for Mobile Graphics are the responsibility of the people that made them... and those people are the maker of your Laptop, NOT NVidia. NVidia only supplies the GPU itself, the Laptop maker customizes it to your system configuration, making it nearly impossible for NVidia to make drivers for ALL those possibilities.

Try a Uninstall, DriverSweeper Cleaning, followed by a reinstall... bottom line on laptops: If you find drivers that work well, KEEP'EM. I'd know ::typing on a laptop atm::

It's the bain that is using a laptop. Sorry to hear that didn't help, mayhaps someone else will come along with another suggestion. Best of luck, keep us posted.

I'm having the same problem. Tried a few driver versions and get the same error message, "No compatible hardware found." Running a desktop on XP 32-bit SP3. Abit mobo.

On a side note I uninstalled my old drivers to install direct X 9.0C.

Appreciate any suggestions.
