Cannot install GT 520M no compatible graphics hardware
  1 / 3    
I have an Acer Aspire 5742G with two video cards.The first is Intel HD, and the second must be GeForce GT 520M CUDA 1GB. I download the two drivers from acer support page but when i try to install them i get the same error: This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware.Then I download the 270.61 and 275.33 drivers from nvidia download page and the same problem... i dont know what to do, i try to find a solution but with no luck... in the device manager the nvidia is Standard VGA Graphics Adapter with a yellow icon next to it. If you know any solution please give me a little advise. And please excuse me for my poor english I use it rarely;)

Finally I found a solution to my problem!!! Well in the Acer download page they have two drivers the one is N12PGS and N11PGE but in my bios i found that the vga is N12P-GV VER75.19.13.00.0D so i search for N12PGV driver and found it in TravelMate 5760G. The driver was 267.21 and it works perfectly, my GT 520M was detected and the driver is installed successfully./smile2.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':))' />

Greetings,

I think I've found a fix. I managed to install the latest nvidia notebook drivers (275.33)
The problem is that the NVIDIA drivers are looking for the hardware device in the wrong place.

1) Download the latest notebook drivers for the GT520M e.g. (http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook-win7-winvista-275.33-whql-driver.html)
2) Try to install the drivers and let it fail (this will unzip the driver files to C:\NVIDIA\275.33 ok?)
3) Go to device manager, and right click on the to be nvidia display adaptor (called Standard Video Device) and goto properties.
4) Click on the details tab and change the Propery pulldown menu to "Hardware Ids". It should read "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1050&SUBSYS_[b]04881025[/b]&REV_A1"
5)You will need to copy the the ID: [b]04881025[/b] (or whatever yours reads) to edit install the nvidia drivers.
6) Once you have the special number written down. Goto C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\275.33\Vista\International\Display.Driver\
7) Open nvam.inf in notepad press control+f type "1050" and click find. It will find three different lines of code similar to: %NVIDIA_DEV.1050.01% = section068, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1050&SUBSYS_xxxxxxxx
8) You need to replace the final number (xxxxxxxx) with the number you wrote down before (e.g 04881025)
9) Repeat until all the SUBSYS_xxxxxxxx for the %NVIDIA_DEV.1050 lines are replaced with the number (should be three)
10) Save the document and go back a folder and run setup.exe. It should install now.

I have attached my nvam.inf which you could replace with the original, but i'm not sure if it will work the same on other peoples computers.

BEST OF LUCK :)

no worries, I emailed Acer for a solution but they still haven't replied (two weeks later!) and they said they will solve the issue within 24 hours... lol.

Hi nspiccia,

Altough I had to find "DEV_0DF7" instead of "DEV_1050", and I found the related code lines not in nvam.inf but in two other different *.inf files in Display.Driver folder, your guide was PERFECT for me to solve my problem which was the same that Paradisebg mentioned above.
You're GREAT!

Thank you very much for helping us!

Hello all,

I have an Acer aspire 5750g, with i5 CPU and intel hd graphics and nvidia 520m 1GB graphics. the intel graphics works fine but we all know that its not the best for gaming.
I have tried all of your solutions and they are not successful on my laptop. I would think by now that acer or nvidia would have created a driver that works for this GPU without the hassle.

If you have any solutions at all, this would be much appreciated.

Thanks
