Asus k52j and nvidia problems
So 5 months ago or so i got the asus k52j and immediately formatted and installed fedora... everything works smooth but now i installed windows 7 on a different partition so i can dual boot and play games. But here comes the problem... i just can't install the nvidia drivers for my 310M card. I don't really get the whole optimus thing (i guess it's so that the pc uses a different card while performing easy graphic tasks but switches to the nvidia card when performing high end tasks/whatever so it doesn't drain the battery that much? anyway...). I literally read every topic google has offered me... every driver i try i get the "nvidia installer can't continue. Driver couldn't find the correct hardware (rough translation from my language). I can't play any games since they're lagging or some elements don't even load (like the street in gta4). Currently right now in my bios under GPU i have selected "reserved" but i had win7/vista selected too, nothing changes...

So long story short, can someone write a little tutorial for me how to get the nvidia geforce 310m to work in windows 7 (32 bit) on asus k52j? I'm desperate

I have a k52jc with geforce m310 and optimus. Win 7 Pro [b][u]64 bit[/u][/b]

this worked for me:

I have updated bios version .. v 206 to 216, and installed And older version for geforce ( 257.41 ) (129,48 MB)

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=K52Jc&p=3&s=245 <----- Download BIOS and VGA drivers, try older versions first

this solved graphic isues like " forced integrated graphics ". Now i can run games with High Rendering Nvidia pro..

maybe this works for 32 bit versions to..

Hi everyone, I had a same porblem whit yours. Here's my solution: 1. Step: Go to the bios (don't update) 2. Step: Chose restore default options, settings (or something like similar) 3. Step: Save settings and restart your system 4. Step: Your Os. will see both video cards 5. Step: Now you can run the Nvidia driver I hope it helps!
