GT 555M on vista Asus N55SF
  1 / 2    
Hi guys ,

I have a little problem for install GT555M on vista. The Drivers won't detect the nvidia card, i only can use the Intel integrated chipset.
On the periperic tab i see the 2 card Intel and the second with "?" i tried to install manualy the drivers , never worked.(uncompressed the nvidia driver , choosing
the good ..)
I tried different version of Nvidia drivers , same problem .
I know it using optimus.
Can i use optimus, or if not, only the GT555m on my vista x64 sp2 ?
I have the drivers cd of my asus, but it only work with Windows 7.



(I'm sorry for crap english )

Thanks = )

Why are you using Vista on a laptop equipped with a GT 555M? All laptops with that GPU come with Windows 7, which is the sensible route to go in every aspect.

It's a shame, because Vista is inferior to 7 in just about all metrics.

Still, both Intel IGP and Nvidia GPU drivers are compatible with both Vista and 7, so as long as you install the Intel IGP driver first and the Nvidia GPU after, you should have no issues.

Also, install the latest Asus drivers first, as some hardware has different device IDs that block driver installation.

Nevermind, for some reason I thought you were using an Asus laptop :S

Anyway, check the manufacturer's site for drivers made for Vista.

So I was right about the Asus drivers :)

Go to the Asus site and download the Vista drivers available there. If there aren't Vista drivers available, install Windows 7 drivers in compatibility mode for Vista SP2.

You have to keep in mind that hardware generations are made to work with specific OSes, and in your case that means your hardware was made for Windows 7. You should just upgrade and be done with any driver installation issues. It's both the easiest and the recommended way. Seriously :)
