So... a guy tries to update his driver... *old* HybridPower tech my @$$
[size="6"]First of all, I want to point out, that I am VERY dissapointed @ Nvidia's driver team in this matter.[/size]

SO! This is my SECOND time I post THIS VERY topic at this forum, and NOTHING has happened ever since.

1½ year ago I bought my ASUS UL80Vt laptop. I am never going to buy a PC laptop again. Nuff said.

Last time I tried updating my Nvidia video driver from standard 186.88, I ended up with the biggest ****'d up piece of useless **** PC ever known to mankind. LUCKLY, I got it working by reinstalling OS and install the same old drivers that came with the PC in the first place. Hurray ?

Now this 186.88 driver is one heck of a **** driver. It does not support any kind of CUDA/GPU acceleration, and it definately does not support any kind of newer game. And I can not update to something newer than 197.16 *UNOFFICIAL* driver, which I do not want to jump into, after what happened last time.

Actually, I'm not here asking for help making this HybridCrap working. I've totally given up on that.

My question is; Is there anyway I can TURN OFF the onboard Intel graphics, and make G210M the 'primary' GPU ? IF SO, is it THEN possible to update the driver, without any problems ?

I just want my video driver updated ffs !!!!!!!!!!!

Have you tried disabling the Intel graphics in device manager? Or installing the Nvidia drivers manually through device manager?

Last time I tried that, the screen just went black.

I don't see how that could make any difference. As long as Intel Graphics is 1st priority, and new drivers ruin the Hybrid setup, there's no way it is possible.
