NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M Driver update. Why can't I install the driver update?
  1 / 3    
I have an Asus G73jw with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M and I can't update to the latest 260.99. I've downloaded the driver from the NVIDIA downloads page and every time I try to install it, all I get is a "Install Cannot Continue - The Graphics Driver Could Not Find Compatible Graphics Hardware." Is this a known problem and if so, is there any possible way I can fix it?

Nightmare, I'm having the same issue (I have the same model, 8gb version), and I've done a bit of research to find out that it's as simple as ASUS releasing their drivers for this laptop. All video drivers need to be downloaded from their website as they are written by Asus programmers, after NVIDIA releases theirs specifically for this and other series of their laptops. Usually you have to update from the manufacturer's website.

The reason I wanted to update is because my framerate dropped off on all of my games suddenly and my video's playback choppy.

What I did was a few things, I tried multiple versions of drivers from www.laptopvideo2go.com then I tried ASUS latest driver udpate from Nov 24th -- http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

Still, my video card is gone kaput and my issues are still here.

Nonetheless, hopefully this helps you as I am still having issues with my video card.

Our laptop's are sweet but a real pain in the ass.

Hey guys, I recently just bought my Asus G73JW-A1 its a dream computer I love everything about it! I wanted to update its video card, but it said "Install Cannot Continue - The Graphics Driver Could Not Find Compatible Graphics Hardware" same problem as you guys, I don't need the update although I want it for better performance. Any news on this problem?

Hey guys, I have the same problem on a Asus G53 with the Nvidia GTX 460M card.
I need to install the windows XP 32bit driver and i get the same error as you guys. Without the driver, the video is unbelievably choppy.

Please help,

I have a G73 XA1 8gb ddr3, nvidia 460m and all that yap.. anyways I opened it today and love it so much! however My screen resolution disappeared in a sense tht means it does no longer go to 1960x1080. it somehow erased that setting and went to max: 1280x1024. I thought maybe it was my graphics adapter or maybe windows 7 itself has an issue. My screen is distorted and stretched wide now :(

I thought maybe getting nvidias new driver would help but I have the issue where I cannot install it.. when i go to control panel-device manager-display, it says standard vga adapter. is that right? I tried manually installing old drivers to the vga adapter and it says it is not compatible. This is such a downer for my first day owning this beast... plz let me know if anyone has a suggestion.

I had the same problem with an ASUS G73JW Laptop when trying to install NVIDIA GTX 460M Drivers for Windows XP. THIS SOLUTION WILL WORK FOR YOUR FLAVOUR OF WINDOWS

When running the NVIDIA Install Program I got the error:

NVIDIA Installer cannot continue
This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware

The reason for this error is that the specific device ID for your graphics card does not show up in any of the INF setup files. More on this later.
The way around this is to manually add your device ID to the INF file so it shows up when the setup programs checks for "compatible hardware"

[u][b]Steps:[/b][/u]
[b]1. Get your device ID: click on CONTROL PANEL, then CLICK on SYSTEM, then CLICK on DEVICE MANAGER
2. Under Other Devices/ (or if your video card already has a driver under Display Adapter) click on Video Adapter
3. Click on Details, Device Instance Id should already be selected[/b]
[b]4. You will see something similar to this:[/b]

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0DD1&SUBSYS_20421043&REV_A1\4&30DE1B

This has the detail about your specific video card maker, chipset and model

For instance in my system

VEN_10DE tells me the Vendor is 10DE which is the Vendor ID for NVIDIA
DEV_0DD1 tells me the Chipset is 0DD1 which is the Chipset GTX 460M
SUBSYS_20421043 tells me that this is the Specific MODEL GTX 460M in the Asus 73JW Laptop

[b]5. If you haven't already done so then MANUALLY Download the latest NVIDIA driver for your video card from the NVIDIA website and run the install program. It will give your the error : "This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware" Don't Panic.[/b]

[b]6. GOTO the install directory. The default will be something like:[/b]

c:\nvidia\DisplayDriver\275.50\WinXP\English\Display.Driver\
or
c:\nvidia\DisplayDriver\260.63\WinXP\International\Display.Driver\

[b]7. there will be many INF files there of the type:[/b]

nvaa.inf
nvac.inf
nvam.inf
nvao.inf
nvbl.inf

etc...

[b]8. Pick any one of them (I picked nvam.inf) and make a backup copy then open the original in NOTEPAD or your favourite text editor
9. Scroll down until you see lines like:[/b]

[NVIDIA_Devices.NTx86.5.1]
%NVIDIA_DEV.0405.01% = Section001, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0405&SUBSYS_15D21043
%NVIDIA_DEV.0405.02% = Section001, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0405&SUBSYS_16341043
%NVIDIA_DEV.0407.01% = Section001, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0407&SUBSYS_080117FF
%NVIDIA_DEV.0407.02% = Section002, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0407&SUBSYS_15881043
%NVIDIA_DEV.0407.03% = Section003, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0407&SUBSYS_16181043
%NVIDIA_DEV.0407.04% = Section004, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0407&SUBSYS_16321043
%NVIDIA_DEV.0407.05% = Section001, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0407&SUBSYS_17A21043
%NVIDIA_DEV.0407.06% = Section005, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0407&SUBSYS_3D7B17AA
%NVIDIA_DEV.0408.01% = Section001, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0408&SUBSYS_19021043

These files are for the most part listed BY the four digit HEXidecimal number that appears after DEV.

[b]10. NOW CAREFULLY scroll down to the section that is similar to your chipset / DEV number[/b]

%NVIDIA_DEV.0CB1.01% = Section041, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0CB1&SUBSYS_203C1043
%NVIDIA_DEV.0DEE.02% = Section042, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0DEE&SUBSYS_15621043
%NVIDIA_DEV.0DEE.04% = Section042, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0DEE&SUBSYS_15A21043

[b]11. Take a look at this pattern. You will make a DEVICE ID for your Video Adapter and insert it here[/b]

The first part is the same for everyone:
%NVIDIA_DEV.

From Step 4
my DEV is 0DD1

so my device id so far is:
%NVIDIA_DEV.0DD1.01%

[b]NOTE:[/b] id there is already DEVs same as yours then your line will be the next increment ie...
%NVIDIA_DEV.0DD1.02%, or %NVIDIA_DEV.0DD1.03%, etc

for the section just make it the same as the section where you're inserting it so I have:
%NVIDIA_DEV.0DD1.01% = Section042,

the next part is the same for everyone so you will have:
%NVIDIA_DEV.0DD1.01% = Section042, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_

add the rest (your DEV and SUBSYS numbers) so it matches your DEVICE ID and your finished device ID should look similar to this:

[b]%NVIDIA_DEV.0DD1.01% = Section042, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0DD1&SUBSYS_20421043[/b]

INSERT IT WILL LOOK LIKE THIS:

%NVIDIA_DEV.0CB1.01% = Section041, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0CB1&SUBSYS_203C1043
[b]%NVIDIA_DEV.0DD1.01% = Section042, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0DD1&SUBSYS_20421043 [/b]
%NVIDIA_DEV.0DEE.02% = Section042, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0DEE&SUBSYS_15621043

12. NOW SCROLL DOWN to the [Strings] section it will look like this:

[Strings]
DiskID1 = "NVIDIA Windows 2000/XP (32 bit) Driver Library Installation Disk 1"
NVIDIA = "NVIDIA"
NVIDIA_DEV.0405.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 9500M GS"
NVIDIA_DEV.0405.02 = "NVIDIA GeForce 9500M GS "
NVIDIA_DEV.0407.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT"
NVIDIA_DEV.0407.02 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT "
NVIDIA_DEV.0407.03 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT "
NVIDIA_DEV.0407.04 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT "
NVIDIA_DEV.0407.05 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT "
NVIDIA_DEV.0407.06 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT "


Same as before add a line in for your Video card:

NVIDIA_DEV.0CB1.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M"
[b]NVIDIA_DEV.0DD1.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M - KAPs INF MOD"[/b]
NVIDIA_DEV.0DEE.02 = "NVIDIA GeForce GT 415M "
NVIDIA_DEV.0DEE.04 = "NVIDIA GeForce GT 415M "

[b]NOTE:[/b] id there is already DEVs same as yours then your line will be the next increment ie...
NVIDIA_DEV.0CB1.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M"
NVIDIA_DEV.0DD1.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M"
[b]NVIDIA_DEV.0DD1.[u]02[/u] = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M - KAPs INF MOD"[/b]
NVIDIA_DEV.0DEE.02 = "NVIDIA GeForce GT 415M "
NVIDIA_DEV.0DEE.04 = "NVIDIA GeForce GT 415M "


13. SAVE FILE

14. If you have the file ListDevices.txt open it and add a line under the appropriate section

15. GO back and manually run setup.exe from where the NVIDIA files where extracted:
[b]NOTE: [/b]DO NOT RUN THE DOWNLOADED APPLICATION OR YOUR WILL OVERWRITE EVERYTHING YOU'VE JUST DONE!

For Example Your setup program may be here:

c:\nvidia\DisplayDriver\260.63\WinXP\International\setup.exe

Hey, kapley, I'm not the original poster, but I followed your instructions and was able to install the beta driver. Just had to change it in two different places in the .inf file besides the strings section. Thanks!

All I have to say is WOW!!!!

I haven't been able to upgrade my driver for over a year now and I have constantly tried to when games like BRINK didn't work. And once again Rage came out and I had to update my drivers and it never worked.

This time i searched Google for about 30 minutes before I came upon this HOLY THREAD!

I followed kapley's instructions exactly and all i have to say is THANK YOU! I created this account just to THANK YOU FOR TAKING TIME out of your life and helping others. It looks like you spent A LOT of time on that post and I really appreciate it.

His instructions worked and FINALLY when i ran setup.exe I couldn't believe my eyes when it finally said installing.

THANKS MAN!

Hi, I have an Alienware laptop M17x with an Nvidia GeForce 460M graphics card.

I recently tried upgrading the graphics drivers, but kept getting the common error that's listed here. I started reading and came across something that said uninstalling and reinstalling some things will fix it. Well, I uninstalled everything and now my graphics card is not showing up on Device Manager. All I see there is "Intel(R) HD Graphics Family", so I can't really fix the issue anymore since my graphics card doesn't show up so I could find the ID to properly install the drivers. Is anyone going through the same issue? What can I do to still find the "ID" to fix this and reinstall the drivers?


Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Edited to add: Nevermind. Found it by searching "DxDiag".

Still receiving the same error..don't know what I'm doing wrong... =(
