Laptop could not detect Nvidia driver after reinstall Windows 7
I have an ALIENWARE M14X R2 laptop, and i've reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium yesterday. After installing, the laptop could not detect the Nvidia Driver anymore. It is not in Device Manager. Device manager ONLY shows the Integrated 4000 graphics card. Nvidia Control Panel have also disappear after reinstalling Windows 7. I tried to download all versions of the Nvidia driver that would work with GT 650M driver from dell and Nvidia website as well, but it still could not find compatibility driver in the laptop. I have also use auto detect driver from the Nvidia website, but it could not find it. I do not know what to do to be able to have the Nvidia driver working again. Plz Help, I would really appreciate it, because I am not a computer expert at all.

Did you make sure to reinstall any and all BIOS/Chipset updates from Dell/Alienware?

Yes I have, If I reinstall Windows again, would it help? because I think during my first time start up to the setting language page, I kinda forcing my laptop to reboot as it is not progressing anything at all What other options do i have? anyway to repair the whole installation of Windows? I have also checked BIOS it says Discrete Driver [Not Detected]. I think this is the major reason, but how can I detect the discrete driver?

Contact the notebook vendor, maybe they already had to provide several people the solution.

driver have bugs, but this is not one of them. Now go fix it already." -fgiesen

Seems like a corrupted Bios is causing the issue
